I have a DJI F550 Hexacopter, and I purchased the landing gear for it, and all the legs broke in just a few lightly hard landings.... those legs are way way way too fragile!!So I decided to do my own…Continue

"How do you reply to a comment here? Kelsey Ferland, my father lives in Mississauga, so I came by a few times. One time I went by the lake at Port Credit, and I saw a DJI Phantom going by. I think it's fine there since, you are over 9km from…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to Vincent's discussion Control quadrotors via a computer
"I am surprised no one has replied to you yet... You don't have to use the standard transmitter/receiver. The flight controller on the drone has a few channels as input and control, the input is usually PWM. Normally those input channels are…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to Abolo's discussion Relay switch for Gopro camera !! in the group ArduPlane User Group
"If you don't want to open the GoPro and risk damaging it, there is a way to control it using the HD bus port. If you google for "gopro hd bus", you can find a lot of sites showing how to control the GoPro using the HD bus, for…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to Keith Laepple's discussion 3D printed drones without wires/solder! in the group 3D Printing Drone Parts
"This is really cool. But the idea to make a quad with fully 3D printed wires is not a very good idea. It will work for connecting the main board with receiver, GPS (or other low current parts), but connecting the motors is not a good idea. The…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to Darius Jack's discussion Hybrid Drone Factory - Make your Gas Powered Generator to Fly in the group ArduCopter User Group
"So then it's a helicopter... The difference is that instead of wasting energy on converting mechanical energy to electricity (plus the added weight of an electric generator), and then back to mechanical energy through the brushless motors, you…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to Darius Jack's discussion Hybrid Drone Factory - Make your Gas Powered Generator to Fly in the group ArduCopter User Group
"Instead of 4 gas motors, why not take the concept of a Stingray 500 with one gas motor at fixed RPM with direct drive to propellers, and have the variable pitch controlled electronically. Much more efficient than converting mechanical energy to…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to Neven Šiklić's discussion Raspberry Pi quadcopter - NO ARDUINO
"I had the same idea, but I don't have time to work on it :( To add to the sensors, I would add GPS, and barometer as a must. Optionally I would also add optical flow sensor, and ultrasonic sensor. It would be nice if you can integrate…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to befinitiv's discussion 3+km HD FPV system using commodity hardware
"That looks to me like somewhere it's buffering the frames, and it won't release the data until the buffer is full. Maybe we should find out where this buffer is; maybe if we could find out the size of the buffer, and work around that...…"

"Hi befinitiv, I am really new to RPi2, and to Linux. I wanted to increase the power of my transmitter, but I found the instructions a little difficult. For example, I could not figure out what section(s) I have to do in…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to befinitiv's discussion 3+km HD FPV system using commodity hardware
"Inside my building I get about 5 meters... Too many walls I guess. But I am using the antenna that it came with, and i am pretty sure that befinitiv said he is using a custom made antenna."

Michael Ciurescu replied to befinitiv's discussion 3+km HD FPV system using commodity hardware
"I am trying to figure out how the data gets sent using befinitiv's solution? because I don't see any port # anywhere?   If I want to add more data (for OSD), how would I append the data to the stream? and how would I pick it up on the…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to befinitiv's discussion 3+km HD FPV system using commodity hardware
"The hello_video program deals with encoded data stream, unless there are some APIs (similar to raspivid). But... when I searched for raspivid source code I found it here: source code   I already looked at the code, and the API to write text is…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to befinitiv's discussion 3+km HD FPV system using commodity hardware
"I looked through the raspivid parameters, and I saw the annotations, so I tried it and just did -a "testing", and it works, it sends the video with "testing" text on top/center of the video. So, if raspivid can put text on top…"

Michael Ciurescu replied to befinitiv's discussion 3+km HD FPV system using commodity hardware
"So, I finally got the TL-WN722N cards, and I got it to work. The problem for me initially was that the delay was huge, about 10 seconds... but I changed the script in tx, for raspivid I changed to -b 2000000, and then the delay was minimal, but…"
