New Event 38 Mission Planner Features

The latest version of Mission Planner for Event 38 has just been released and we have some exciting new features to share. We often develop these items specifically for our aircraft but I like to hear back from the DIY Drones community what features, if any, you think would be useful to have. If anything looks interesting, let me know and we'll work to get it into the main Mission Planner development branch. As always, you can download our version as-is on our…See More

"WeRobotics has their hand in all of the most interesting drone projects I've seen e.g. dropping mosquitoes, drone delivery, disaster relief and all in exotic (and difficult) locations. Good challenge for anyone up to the test."

"We found there was definitely an offset of some size without the survey grade GPS, but didn't make comparisons day over day to see how much it moved. We haven't tried anything with PPP yet either."

[Edit 12/31/2015: Note for Pixhawk users that Canon cameras require a 5V pulse to trigger so a voltage step-up from Pixhawk's 3.3V output is required. See compatible cable and link to more instructions here.]

Dear, good afternoon.

I bought the Skywalker E382 and I need your help.
Read all information http://event38.wikispaces.com page and follow the manual configuration.
I'm having trouble configuring Dragonlink 2 Long Range (433Mhz) UHF Tx and Rx System and RFD900 Radio Modems (900Mhz).
My setup for Skywalker E382 is as follows:
Skywalker E382 168mm.
ArduPilot Mega 2.6 Set (external compass).
Turnigy 9X 9cH (2.4Ghz) Transmitter w / Module & 8ch Receiver (Mode 2) (v2 Firmware).
My question is:
Do you have a manual, tutorial or video of equipment configuration? The frequencies of the equipment are correct? Do you have manual, tutorial or video installation of radio base station ground? Which types of antennas you use for radio base station ground?

Thank you.

Sincerely

Juliano Costa.
