"A year ago I was experimenting with something similar. I modified the DIY OSD by Dennis Frie to send GPS and a bit of other data on 2 unused video lines. I built a receiver that uses a high speed comparator to recover the data and drive a couple of…"
"The comment above by Luke is interesting, suggesting that cheaper copies can benefit the community. Correct or not, I like this thought.
Maybe the only complaint should be that they have 3DR references printed on the modules; an attempt at…"
I've not said much before but have been following for a long time. Having the option DMP/DCM is good, but switching to DMP later on at the expense of DCM would take a big part of the project out of open source and make it reliant…"
"I've had one of these from R2hobbies (same set, different stickers) for almost a year with receivers in 3 planes. I ground tested it out to 600m although TX antenna orientation is important past 500m. It looks like they've added some…"
"The HawkSky flys well without rudder. I think I've only used rudder a few times in the last year; by mistake :). I probably should learn to use it.
The receiver supplied is 5-channel but it's only a park range receiver at best. The…"
"The HawkSky has quite a bit more room internally but with less foam won't be quite as strong. Flying too slowly I dropped mine on it's nose last week.
Poked in the bottom of the fuse you can see the the video transmitter. Behind that are…"
I've been flying the same Dynam HawkSky for over a year (setup for fpv) and have two more work in progress. The main one will have all the UAV gear, including Ardupilot. I've recently put some info up on my RC Groups…"
For many years I've had an interrest in models and electronics. I work in embedded hardware and software development. I'm already running fpv and would like to develop it to include GPS based control. I've been developing some electronics for RC aircraft and have ordered the Ardupilot board. I've had a Co-Pilot for some time but haven't used it. We have lots of hills, so it will be interrestion to see how the IR works.
