I am attempting to fix the flybar acro code, wanted to get it out with the upcoming 3.1.3 release, but I'm in a bit of a pickle. It compiles in Arduino, but won't compile in Make for PX4. I assume…Continue
Does anybody have a really good intervalometer script for an SX260? I've got your basic "Ultra Intervalometer" script running, but would like more functionality.I'd like something that will run as…Continue
Warning of an important bug.Do not use "Flybar" mode with Acro mode. When these are combined, the servos stop responding to cyclic input. If you switch to acro mode in the air, you could crash.Use…Continue
I've been working on a new helicopter platform the last few months. Based on an MSH Protos heli which I chose because it's an extremely light weight platform, weighing in at only ~1200g without battery. It has a full belt drive which I much…Continue
3.1 was released just in time for the holidays, but I felt the new Acro Mode we have developed has not been adequately demonstrated. So I shot this video to show that Arducopter now has a competent Acro mode to go along with all the other functions. This is kind of a big deal to me, as I am interested in learning acrobatic flying, but I really appreciate having…Continue
I think this is actually the second attempt at this. Wasn't there one last year? Good to see that they actually caught the people involved and arrested them. Hopefully it won't result in a knee-jerk reaction, but I doubt it. The article is horribly written, but at least they didn't call it a "drone".…Continue
On Friday we experienced very high winds, 60-90km/h, or Beaufort 7-8, this caused damage in the area, actually knocking over some trees, etc. I decided to go out and test the wind performance of my F450 quadcopter, see if it's even possible to fly a quad in such conditions, and test the inertial Loiter performance.
Overall, it went fairly well. Flight…Continue
