APM 2.0 Dataflash Chip

Started this discussion. Last reply by Cadbury Dec 16, 2013. 1 Reply

I have a bent and battered 2.0, that went through some crashes. First, the Mediatek GPS got ripped off and I went with an external U-Blox. Then, to my astonishment, I found the SD-Card-like dataflash…Continue

Greetings.I have a quad equipped with RcTimer 5010 360KV motors and 16 inch props, running on 4S LiPo. Nice and steady platform for FPV and amateur video, flew it all spring and summer with a chinese…Continue

"I believe the wait for a nice 6S sensor is over: I've always wanted to "steal" the V/A readings off my FrSky FAS-100 sensors, but I never knew how..."

Para replied to Yochai 360Video's discussion HexaCopter Can't lift Itself
"I'm using 2814-710 motors driving Graupner 11x5s on a simiIar frame. I'm cheap, so I got RCTimer ones, even if it's sporting a $3k thermaI camera, but one can find them from Cobra, T-Motor, KDE and more. The bird weights 2.1 Kg and…"

Para replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter-3.2 beta testing
"I have Guided as one of my 6 flight modes. I select it on my TX then grab the tablet and hit Follow. Last I played with it was in July and it kinda' worked. There's some behaviour I don't like. It won't hold the altitude you…"

Para replied to xoltri's discussion Pixhawk causing motor sync issues.
"Unlike other ESCs come with an "airplane" firmware - with features like braking, soft-start or voltage cutoff - and can be reprogrammed with open-source code, the Afro series was designed by Mr. Hamasaki (aka TimeCop) and ran SimonK code…"

Para replied to Matt Ford's discussion Turnigy KForce ESCs won't calibrate; U8 Motors won't spin
"Matt. If your ESCs won't calibrate off your receiver throttle channel, then the problem lies not with the Pixhawk. And buying a DJI FC won't solve it. I have no experience with the 70AHV, but I've played alot with K-Force 40As and…"

Para replied to Stone Jensen's discussion Can new sony cybershot for aerial mapping, be controlled ?
"If it has the Multi I/F, there's a chance it might support LANC. Then one can build an RC/LANC interface with an arduino, or buy the mikrokopter unit."

Para replied to Matt's discussion APM 2.6 Telemetry to D8R-XP
"On the side of your D8R-XP you'll find the Rx/Tx/GND pins for the FrSky telemetry. The connection is exactly as for the D4R-II."

Para replied to Emi's discussion Pixhawk doesn't lift
"You're too heavy. 2:1 thrust/weight ratio is the barely minimum acceptable for safe hover.With 3:1 ratio you can fly OK, with some sluggish recovery from sporty maneouvers when the LiPo is almost empty."

Para replied to nickthecook's discussion Questions for videographers
"Coaxial setups and GoPro footage don't get along too well. Because of the bottom propeller arcs, you are forced to mount your gimbal close to the aircraft center, and it will be hard to keep both the aforementioned props and the landing gear…"

Para commented on CSGShop's blog post NEO-M8N with GPS Glonass antenna + Compass ready for purchase and testing
"The M8N is fun. I get 11 sats and 1.0 HDOP in my livingroom, and that's below a metal roof and a reinforced concrete floor. But then I removed the NEO module and antenna and replaced a NEO-6 on a GPS that has external SAW and LNA. What do you…"

"I'm sure I saw this somewhere, but I can't find it now, so I'll ask: How do I enable IMU logging without a console ? :)"

"Attopilot 180A and a SBEC. I'd rather go with tested and trusted hardware for $30 extra, then risk a whole bird."

Para replied to Ben G.'s discussion Can't get my pixhawk quad to fly...
"Ben, starting with any DJI autopilot is not a good ideea. It's an extremely beginner-friendly system, that will actually teach one to gude the flying machine, not to fly it. The GPS and Simple/Supersimple modes (equivalent to…"

"I'm doing some comparative tests between a pair of "vanilla" GPSes, one Crius CN-06v2 and other Reyax RY825Al, sporting a NEO-6 and a NEO-M8N respectively, with just a 25x25x4mm ceramic antenna each, and no external LNA/SAW. I saw…"
