Hey all, I had quite a few of the parts for the OSD already so I downloaded the source files from the diydrones store site and sent them off to be fabbed, but as a friend and I were assembling our…Continue
"I think any news story needs to be taken with a grain of salt unless there is an independently verifiable source from the FAA. Specifically a press release, NPRM, or other official communications. Untill then I still file this under…"
"I like the multiple radio ports you have, I have run into this problem myself while using a telemetry radio and a arduino.
A driver chip for external status LEDs would be nice to have.
A voltage divider would be good for sensing the main battery…"
"That looks really nice, have you checked to see how the motor controllers behave with slow rotation speeds? The sensor less wheels I looked at a while back ended up having a pretty quick minimum speed. Also have you tried running one of…"
"Has anyone thought of using DATV Digital Amateur TV? Essentially Ham radio operators are doing fast scan tv (normal video) using the digital protocols dvb-t that normal digital television uses. Unfortunately those encoders are pretty…"
"Yes you can get 4 more channels out with the SBUS to PWM Decoder
Yes you need the servo channel changer to program which of the 16 channels the decoder puts out on its 4 outputs.
You should only ever need one servo channel changer as you unhook it…"
"There are some scholarly papers on this as well as detecting other things moving in the room from the reflections the things give off. You could search on google scholar for papers, If you are not in university see if you can use the computers…"
"Go for the corex (corplast in the US). Get a sheet of it and make cuts / creases to bend it into a box of the size you need, lid and all just like a cardboard box is constructed. Use some glue to hold the seams together and add a bit of…"
"If you have never programmed in assembly (doesn't seem you have) then you should look up what assembly code looks like, and how much work it takes to do even the most simple of tasks before you decide you are not going to learn C or C++. …"
"It probably will be able to, however it sounds like you should contact them directly to ask questions as I bet there are a lot more questions that you don't even know that you should be asking yet. Also ask them the price before you get…"
"Yes, not the 16 channel receiver though. You can use the connection where the sensor hub plugs into, NOT the smartport, and NOT sbus. I am running mine with a D4R-II receiver, and the jdrones IO board software running on an arduino pro mini…"
"EDIT: I did not see the replies below, and had already typed this out so I will still post it, but .... yea what those guys said EDIT
If you want to charge those lipos at 5c then you will need a charger of at least 22.2*8*5= 888 watts output. …"
"If you do not have a way to measure the width of the nut (flat side to flat side) then your best bet is to take one of the nuts with you to the hardware store and try it in different wrenches till you find one that fits. There are a few…"
"@Euan I actually find that more useful in that they are telling you the parameters of their test and design. It would be unreasonable to expect an esc to perform the same in a 30mph wind as it does when wrapped in insulation."
