Bluetooth connectivity via RN41 (Sparkfun Bluetooth Mate Gold)

Started Mar 6, 2016 0 Replies

I'm trying to create two different bluetooth links to cut down on some wires.  Currently, TELEM1 on the pixhawk goes to the 3DR radio and TELEM2 goes to the OSD.The first and most obvious is…Continue

Can the 3dr Bluetooth module be "renamed"?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Pedals2Paddles Jul 16, 2015. 2 Replies

Is there a way to change the name of the 3DR bluetooth telemetry device?  I'd like to make it something other than HC6 or whatever it is now.Continue

HDOP fluctuation and subsequent drifting on APM 2.6

I have an APM 2.6 flight controller and a 3DR GPS/Compass.  I have a constant problem, not an isolated incident related to space weather.  The HDOP drifts up and down between roughly 1.2 and 4.  As a…Continue

Does anyone know of an enclosure that will fit on the 3DR Y6?  It would give it a more clean/polished look.Continue

I'm trying to create two different bluetooth links to cut down on some wires.  Currently, TELEM1 on the pixhawk goes to the 3DR radio and TELEM2 goes to the OSD.The first and most obvious is bluetooth module on the drone, connected to the PIxhawk TELEM2.  This would be in parallel with the MinimOSD, but the OSD would only have a rx wire connected obviously.  This would let me connect to the drone directly via bluetooth from my laptop or phone without using the telemetry radios.The second is a…See More

UAS Response to Amtrak Vermonter Derailment

Posted on October 13, 2015 at 11:57am 5 Comments

On Monday October 5, 2015, Amtrak's Vermonter train struck fallen rock and derailed just outside Northfield, VT.  The diesel locomotive and several passenger cars tumbled down an embankment.  There were many injuries, but thankfully no fatalities.  The location is "extremely rural", cut through dense forest, with very limited…

Drone crashes outside White House, existing laws applied, owner cited.

Posted on October 9, 2015 at 4:13am 12 Comments

Another unwitting newbie with their shiny new toy, totally oblivious to the rules.  I do not know what brand/model it was, although we can probably all make a rather educated guess.  The big take away here is existing laws were applied and the owner was cited appropriately by local police. Gloating politicians everywhere are in tears.  Finally,…

Well this is a delightful bit of irony. 

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.) decided to capture the excitement of his June 21 wedding day on video using a drone, even though the commercial use of remotely controlled vehicles is still restricted by the FAA, which Maloney oversees on the House Transportation and Infrastructure…
