"OK, thank you.
Can you recommend me any 433 Mhz xbee module so I can link ground station to the arduino module which is in the plane?
I have been searching for any 433Mhz device, but all i have seen seems to be limited to few…"
"OK, thank you for your answer. Another question: with 900, I would be working in 10km range, isn't it?
I would need to work with 20 km, at least. Do you know if I can add a xtend 900 to xbee 900 and work sucessfully with…"
"Thank for your answer, Johann,
OK, but with 2,4 I would work with no long range, wouldn't I? The main problem is that I need to send and receive data from xbee ground station to xbee air working in 20km range, more or less.
I have read some posts about xbee 868 and xsc, but I am not sure about disadvantages which each one.
I have read about 868 duty cycle problem, cooling, etc. As far as i am concerned, it seems duty cycle is solved with 9600 limit…"
"Gentlemen, I too ordered the APM (arduPilot Mega) and IMU shield "oilpan" and a ardupilot shield v2, (MPXV5004DP)'. I have been searching for "days" it seems to find out how I was going to cable up my shield v2 airspeed…"
"I have seen mixed reports about using 2.4 ghz radios with 2.4 ghz telemetry, I would not but the choice is yours, just don't like the idea of any issues meaning I lost control of my plane. At this point you will find it hard to get an Xbee to…"
Thanks for your info its been very helpful. I found the list I made in my original post from the same link that you sent me. I only posted it in order to clarify what I was planning to order, as I thought I needed items that, as…"
"1) you don't need a magnetometer for an airplane or the FTDI cable at all. Also, you're confusing ArduPilotMega with the original ArduPilot (which uses that shield you mention; you don't need that with APM). If you want airspeed, get…"
Hi everyone,just joined the forum today, as I am set on installing ardupilot mega into my aircraft but just want to try and clarify a few things before hand. As I live the UK I want to order everything I need in one go and from as fewer sites as possible as I will have to pay inport TAX and VAT. 1) Looking to purchase: ardupilot mega ardupilot mega IMU shield/oilpan Rev-H (with pins) triple axis magnetometer Rev…See More
