Hi,So I just received my hexacopter and I'm very new to drones in general, so setup and following the very poorly written instructions from jdrones has proven to be very difficult for me. I would…Continue
Persistence is the key. That hex is not as complicated as the RC guy(?!) said. . I assume he does not have any QUAD experience either. However good thing is he knows the RC stuff. Caution: Don't install…"
So we've had some advancement with our hexacopter. We took it to an RC shop to see if they could help us. They said they were able to establish a connection between the computer and the copter and the receiver and the radio, but they cannot…"
Ok , got it. patience and practice in Sim is key word. Just keep working on Sim flights and sooner or later you can fly. There is not much to read as manual for Sim. May be there is a softcopy in their sight. Landing is however…"
By trouble with flights, I just meant that none of us have been very good at flying without crashing, but I assume that is because we are not in practice. We are getting better though!
Sorry about the lack of detail, but thank you so much for…"
what do you mean by "trouble with flights (so obviously we did need to purchase something to help us out)."
Does it/flight sim not work? Can you elaborate on trouble with flight? In Sim after all basic loading the software and…"
That is very positive step you have taken. Good. Now There is no other alternative to lot of practice flight on sim. You can crash as many times and then press the red button on the sim controller to reset the heli.…"
So we purchased the RealFlight Basic flight simulator and have been having lots of trouble with flights (so obviously we did need to purchase something to help us out). After flying a lot of the helicopters on the simulator, I was wondering if…"
Yes that is telemetry modem/radio. You need one in each end. One is fixed in flying airframe ( in your case it hexacopter)
The other one is connected to computer/laptop running a Ground control station software like mission…"
I have one more question. When we ordered our hexacopter, we also ordered a telemetry kit. What is the purpose of a telemetry kit? I also have two of these and my guess is that they are part of the telemetry kit. Does anyone know what this…"
First of all, thank you so much to all of you for responding. Your quick responses will really help my research along!
I have some basic flying experience from an AR Parrot drone. I'm not trying to fly the hexacopter in any crazy…"
Hope you take our words seriously though your budget seems to be deep. BTW do i see a Parrot quad in the background. Is it in working condition? Did you fly it? Hmm , quite a few goodies in there.
Do let us know if you need…"
"Morli gave a great response. I would like to add that purchasing a basic 3-4 channel electric powered R/C airplane and learning to fly it first with local assistance will help you learn all the needed basics, of radio, electric motors and associated…"
"Oh dear - I forsee some expensive mistakes coming your way on this current course.
I'm with Morli - you really need someone to explain all the fundamentals to you before you plough your expensive hex into a river - or worse - into a populated…"
"Excellent response. I would add that when you start to fly that you keep it low, 1 or 2 meters and fly only in stabilize mode. You need to be able fly really well in stabilize mode. When things go wrong and they will, you need to be able to fly…"
Ok , first of all you need to find some one local who has RC flying experience. Any one from local RC flying club will be able to help you to understand
1. Basics of RC flying ( what is what , what is a RC control and what you should do to…"
Hi,So I just received my hexacopter and I'm very new to drones in general, so setup and following the very poorly written instructions from jdrones has proven to be very difficult for me. I would greatly appreciate any help and thank anyone who has taken the time to help me out.1. My first question: Do I take the hexacopter stands off? They are very tightly screwed on, but I'm assuming they come off before flight. My copter is pictured below:…See More
