Yaw issues with my 'flexi' H quad

Hi all.I have a H frame quad with the arms mounted on silicone o rings which has been flying fine for a long time now. A check of my blog pages will show the machine.Since upgrading the firmware…Continue

I am setting up an octa, having just replaced my APM with a pixhawk.As the max current will be over 90A I have made up an attopilot 150A system and a 5V BEC, all wired into the power port. This is…Continue

Power options for pixhawk

Have just bitten the bullet and ordered a pixhawk.I notice in the instructions is says 'APM power module-REQUIRED' and it appears to ship with one.However I will be using it on my big octa and the…Continue

Octa power distribution options.

Im just mulling over my options for powering on octa from a maximum of 4 parallel batteries (usually 2). It dosent make good engineering sense to put all the current through one APM power module and…Continue

"I was thinking about this problem too. Did you do this because you need more than 8 servos and you were not able to bridge sbus to the AUX 1 and 2 of the pixhawk? Indeed, if I have to hang servos off the receiver (I'm guessing you managed to…"

Yaw issues with my 'flexi' H quad

Hi all.I have a H frame quad with the arms mounted on silicone o rings which has been flying fine for a long time now. A check of my blog pages will show the machine.Since upgrading the firmware about a month ago it has been a complete pig to fly, mostly with yaw issues. The yaw oscillates to and fro and no settings seem to change this. Also yaw control inputs produce large lift changes.I am wondering if there has been some fundamental yaw firmware changes in the new issue. I cant remember what…See More

"It may be worth experimenting with the folding (therefore flapping) props. They dont do any fine pitch enough for normal multicopter but for speed they my be perfect. Would have to find a way to limit the folding while on the ground. "

Vince Hogg commented on leonardthall's blog post Printed high speed AVC copter and crash
"you defiantly want props with much more pitch and smaller diameter than the normal recommended ones. ecalc will probably show very poor efficiency for the multicopter section but try the prop calc section and check the pitch speed. Is there a Brit…"

Finally I have a good UAV ground station.

Posted on March 2, 2014 at 10:54am 16 Comments

Having completed many UAV filming jobs from locations without vehicle access I was looking to improve the logistics of getting the equipment on site. I have occasionally left some vital components in the car 2km away I wanted to have everything (except the copter) in one box.

Holden Drone by CAT2. Some summer testing with Arduplane

Our Holden Drone has been finished for some for some time now but I have not had time to edit and upload any video until now.

During these two merged flights we were testing most of the Arduplane modes including some tight figure 8 waypoint routes around the field. RTL, circle and FBW all worked well. This was all done line of…

Hi Vince,
I'm a tinkerer and an inventor myself and I noticed your servo zoom mount for your NEX camera. I was going to make one up myself but I felt I would ask if you would share. On that note I liked your 2 axis gimbal also! I wasn't considering printing one myself , but yours looked very light. Do you share your models ? I would certainly give you credit.

-Andy
