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
Hello,I have installed the sonar XLL-EZ0 on the quadcopter (3DR). Then I launch a sonar test though the CLI in the mission planner software. The arducopter is connected via USB only (no battery).The minimum reading with the sonar command is 20 cm.…Continue
Hi,On a 3DR quad arducopter, I am powering the APM2.5 with JP1 off and using the 5v input from the 3DR power module BEC (connects through the voltage measurement port).This powers , If I understood correctly, all of the APM2.5 boards including the…Continue
Here a typical week-end "dronegeek" DIY build project : expermenting with 3D printing to make a 900mm Pixhawk quadcopter, with 380Kv motors, 16" props and powered by 6S batteries.
Credits for the frame : do not forget this excellent post from Forrest Frantz on light frame construction techniques:…Continue
If you ever wondered what professional drone designers/makers are doing behind the scenes, well we're not only building UAVs for customers but we also have to train them from A to Z (and often we have to train ourselves too:).
To show you how this is made, enjoy this little video of this morning's training session (for agronomy…Continue
