"With my unit the USB plug is so rounded that I accidently plugged it in upside down which fried the power pins to the GoPro Everything works just fine with my GoPro Hero3+ except I can no longer charge it from the USB port.  I have gone to…"

Ray replied to Ray's discussion Iris+ Tarot gimbal camera compatibility in the group IRIS
"Looks interesting, but like the usb port on the Garmin is in a different location from the GoPro so the fixed  FPV plug on the Tarot would need to be freed up or relocated? I am going to try the cheap option SJ4000 first.  I am done with…"

Ray replied to Ray's discussion Iris+ Tarot gimbal camera compatibility in the group IRIS
"Did some more research and it looks like the SJ400 cam should work.  But looks like I will need to replace the GoPro mini USB cable on the Iris with one that has a micro USB plug... also picked up one of those.  Not too bad if this works.…"

Iris+ Tarot gimbal camera compatibility

Took Iris out for some flights yesterday and still flies great.  But the USB port on my GoPro 4 Silver seems to have failed for charging and data transfer... but strangely still worked for Iris+ FPV.  So the battery is dying and who knows how long the FPV will function even if I get an external battery charger.Question: are there any other cams that are compatible with the Iris/Tarot setup?  I am reluctant to get another GoPro 3 or 4 since they seem to have fragile USB ports... and I don't…See More

Ray replied to Ray's discussion Iris+ failed transmitter? in the group IRIS
"OK, a typo above.  The throttle channel seems to work but the right stick (needed to arm disarm and maneuver) does not.  I just tested her again tied down, armed with tower, ran the throttle up, but no reaction to slewing the right stick…"

Iris+ failed transmitter?

So I charge upall my batteries and head out to do a video for my friends' business today and epic fail.  Iris+ herself seems to be fine but I can't seem to do anything with the transmitter except tilt the Tarot/Gopro. That works fine but no other controls work.Iris won't arm from the transmitter, nor do I even get the uh-uh fail tone when GPS is unsat or whatever.  It doesn't seem to be receiving the signal from the transmitter at all on the throttle channel.  The transmitter's telemtry…See More

Ray commented on David Anders's group IRIS
"Good job, Steve.  I picked one up, too.  I have only one other Iris+ so I am one crash away from being grounded.  Good to have backup and spares going forward."

Ray commented on David Anders's group IRIS
"Just a heads up...  B&H has a special on remaining Iris+ for $399.  Might not be a bad idea to pick one up for spares if you intend to stay with Iris for awhile.  Parts seem to be getting harder to find."

Ray replied to Ned Smith's discussion Flying Practice in the group 3DR SOLO
"Sorry I am not sure exactly where it is on Solo.  I am an Iris+ pilot.  On Iris+ this is in Mission Planner either under Initial Setup or Config/Tuning.  Been awhile since I have flown...  I did this exact thing you are trying to…"

Ray replied to Ned Smith's discussion Flying Practice in the group 3DR SOLO
"Turn off the GeoFence and put it in one of the manual flight modes like stabilize.  As long as you have GeoFence enabled it needs a fix to arm."

Ray replied to Randy's discussion Copter-3.3 beta testing
"What I was thinking is that if the GPS database includes elevation (maybe a bad assumption?) that when you load waypoints into Pixhawk you could specify AGL relative to each waypoint instead of relative to takeoff elevation.  Seems that would…"

Ray replied to Randy's discussion Copter-3.3 beta testing
"Any update on getting terrain following in the next update?  Is this still on track?  Just curious after having to abort a mission yesterday in a remote location.  Flight started in a bit of a bowl and the intent was to fly the…"

"Doesn't Solo have automatic RTL on low battery? Did you disable that?"

Ray replied to Tommy's discussion 3dr ground station in the group IRIS
"Exactly... but 3DR really doesn't have their parts sales set up logically.  They should sell many items by the piece as well as a set, but they don't.  Similar to other parts offerings, you sometimes need to buy things in…"
