Hello,I would like to test a real antenna tracker, driven by a Pixhawk and the antenna tracker firmware, which is setup "in the middle" : on one side the antenna tracker is linked via 3DR radio to the vehicle, on the other side, it is linked to a…Continue
A user reported on this forum a 3DR representative announcing 3DR is stopping the 433 and 915 radios. I assume this is incorrect information or is it? Can a 3DR official give the real status?If 3DR really stops the radios, what could be reliable…Continue
Finally found a bit of time to test the light 45gr 2 axis brushless gimbal we built for the Mobius camera,PS for Cala : better late than never ;)Continue
Hi,I would lile to use the Survey function in mission planner which uses the CAM_TRIG_DIST method to trigger a camera at regular distance intervals.I'm using an infrared camera trigger which is activated by a PWM signal (configurable).The question…Continue
Hi,Edit : from the posts below I deduce the issue seems specific to my config. Threfore I remove temporarily my request to add a line a caution in the wiki as it might not be a general problem for everyone, until further investigation and…Continue
Hi,I launched today the mission planner that started an auto update. It starts downloading files updates (as visible in the console window) but after 2 minutes it stops with error, giving this display and error message:…Continue
Hello,I have seen a picture in the Wiki for the 2.0 APM board showing ouputs A9 to A4 being named "Motor LEDs".Is there any explanation what that is and how is it used ?For example can those outputs be used to power 12Volts LED strips ? (or is it…Continue
Hello,I would like to compile and upload the Arducopter code to my UAV. To do so I followed the instructions on the wiki, that is :-installed the Arduino 1.0.3 (Arudpilot) version on win7-installed the 2.8.1 software version (the two folders…Continue
Here is a DIY design & build of a small (300 class, 9" props) compact foldable quadcopter you can take in a backpack, weighing less than a kilogram (including a Drotek RTK GPS, CUAV V3 pro pixhawk autopilot , telemetry radio)
It can fly a good 30 minutes with a 3-axis Gopro type gimbal (subject of part2). The frame is…Continue
A little laugh with a joke starring my chickens, Penny and Pepsi :)
Oh yes, even chickens may benefit from Arduino tech.
Next step : make ardurover find the path to the chickens house, then recognize if eggs are layed and pick up them up Can DEVs take care of that in a next release ? :)
For RC/UAV uses, a balsa core laminated with carbon fiber makes an ultra light construction panel with very high stiffness. While you can buy ready made panels (usually expensive), this video shows how easily you can make it yourself with no special tools.
This video does not pretend to show the best way of doing these panels. It is…
Unboxing / Disassembly / Review of the CUAV V3 autopilot.
We take a look at one of the latest generation autopilot running the Ardupilot software. How is its build quality and functionality ?How does it compare to a Pixhawk autopilot ?
