Source needed for thin wall 3/4" square aluminum tubing

Started this discussion. Last reply by Kingsley Kronk Aug 28, 2013. 1 Reply

Last year I guess I lucked out and bought a 6' piece of 3/4" square tubing from Lowes that was a bit thicker walled than the 3DR arms, but now when I have been to several Lowes stores the same SKU#…Continue

I went out flying a couple of hours ago and noticed some really weird stuff going on like where loiter would start out ok and then begin to swoop around bigger and bigger until I would have to take…Continue

Suggestion for parameter list organization (camera mount)

Started Feb 1, 2013 0 Replies

I'd like to make a suggestion that all the standard parameters that have to do with the camera mount/gimbal be moved to a separate list instead of being mixed in with the rest.  That way if you don't…Continue

Has anyone else had the white connector sockets come off the board when unplugging?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Hein du Plessis Jan 28, 2013. 3 Replies

A couple weeks ago I unplugged my power module cable and it took the part of the socket off the APM with it just leaving the bare pins sticking up off the board.  I carefully reinstalled it and put…Continue

"@criro1999 For usb capture we still have the same problems, lack of usb drivers. A more elegant solution would be to do the analog to WiFi encoding in another place, and just display that on DroidPlanner. Her is the issue if you want to keep a…"

"Arthur, When do you believe we can see the video capture (FPV) on Nexus7? Last time I put this question on last summer, was related to missing video capture card for android. Any news since that time?"

"@Jeff: Nice out-of-the-box thinking there. I tried to come up with a good way to attach to the back handle with no luck. Plexiglas and hairbands - love it! @Glenn: nice integration of video!"

"Looks nice and clean. But wondering if the Nexus7 position is not acting as a screen to the DX8 radio signal. Looking to previous post (GoPro parts used to mount Tablet onto RC Transmitter), his antenna is after the Nexus7 tablet. "

My Nexus 7 transmitter mount.

Here's my 5 minute mount using two pieces of scrap plexiglass, standoff screws, zip ties, and two of my daughter's hair bands.  It did want to hang a little backward with the weight of the Nexus on there but I used a couple of velcro straps around the antenna mount to pull the lanyard upward until it hangs from my…See More

This was my first guided flight a couple of months ago, just getting around to posting it.  Video is shot with my iPhone in hand, make sure to view in HD.


Trying out 2.9 on a windy day.

Posted on January 20, 2013 at 12:30pm 5 Comments

I had it up and down about 10 minutes yesterday, it was pretty windy so I was mainly just putting it up, trying loiter, then RTL over and over.  I take video with an old deactivated iPhone 4 and it usually does really well, I don't know what was up with the horizontal lines yesterday.

Also note the bad bearing on #4 motor when it spins down, It's…

My first time off the ground.

Posted on January 7, 2013 at 9:00am 6 Comments

I saw another post this morning from someone in NC with a hex, so I figured I'd post a little about my first quadcopter build as I'm in NC too.  I started off building the frame inspired by the 3DR design but made my own arms and legs.  I made taller legs in order to mount an old iPhone 4 I had laying around under it for video recording. 

Here's a couple of pictures from the build and then some video of the first time getting it in the air.  I have had no…
