I have the Maxbotix LZ EZ-4, the one with the widest beam.
Only afterwards i noticed a smaller beam was advised.
Any ideas how the wide beam would negatively affect altitude hold in our application?
Would it be usable ? Can the beam be tuned…"
I followed the arducopter wiki for the implementation, so the mag is connected to the Oilpan board as mentioned.I do not have GPS module yet.
I wrote a mail to the support department of the shop where a bought it, hopefully they…"
Thanks for your reply.
Well i was well aware of this device operating voltage, that's why i ordered those logic level converters in the first place.I'm quite sure everything was wired correctly from the start.
I'm having similar problems, serial monitor returns only 0 values.
I use the Sparkfun magneto with the logic level converter.
Everything is double checked, enabled in software,etc...
The only thing i can come up with is a Dead on…"
I'm also looking for a new radio.
If you have the money for it, take a look at Hitec Aurora 9
Computerised 9 channel, large touchscreen, best in class in it's price segment.
Otherwise the Specktrum Dx9 looks nice too.

"I wonder when this thermal runaway occurs where the difference lays between flames only or explosion, is it due to a pressure buildup, bad handling, differences in chemical composition, poor contruction or a combination ?"
"Well, for charging at home/interior i think ceramics are a perfect candidate, you could take it a step further pulling the pot vacuum or putting a carbon coal filter on it to absorb the fumes ;-)
On the field i wouldn't charge those in the back…"
For the moment i'm building a 1000mm heavy lift Quadcopter based on the Aeroquad project, however i'm thinking on shifting to Arducopter electronics.
The frame itself is a DIY construction around a 1mm thickness Aluminium center plate with crossed Alu U profiles underneath.
12mm round CF tubes hinge in those U profiles, this way the four arms are downward foldable for easy transport.
The electronics plates are also made from 1mm CF, cut with hand tools.
Power distribution is a heavy duty DIY double wire ring.
The frame hardware list for the moment (Still waiting on Hobbyking for those)
4x Turnigy 2217 1050Kv
4x Turnigy Plush 30A
12x3.8 APC props
Turnigy Nano-Tech 3s1p 5000 mah
Pictures and more details will follow ;-)
