Ken McNamara replied to Christopher Harvey's discussion Disabled veteran with a patent pending drone system needs YOUR help please.
"Buy a 3DR Solo - upgrade it with a Pixhawk Greencube.  At that point you have a really solid drone with Pixhawk 2.1 controller - without spending a large chunk of change. It's weight is 1.5kg and estimated flight time is 25 minutes…"

"Lyn - Sorry it took me this long to reply. You are correct.  My approach was a bad idea for a couple of reasons. I used the PA-09 crimping tool - the terminals required the smallest (1 mm) die.  The tool made excellent conductor crimps -…"

Lyn Rees replied to Ken McNamara's discussion PixHawk 2.1 - JST GH connector specs & ordering in the group Pixhawk2.1

"That's a great suggestion.  At $20 I'm going to order one.  Looks like it takes a while to get here - maybe I'll be ready to work out plugging it in by then."
