I bought my APM 2.0 before it was actually available, and spent a long time waiting for it to finally arrive..mounted it on my home brew quad and went into tuning hell...I never got it to where it…Continue
"Wow, found this in my search through the part 97 rules...With regard to sharing of spectrum, part 97.303(n)
(2) No amateur station shall transmit from those portions of Texas and New Mexico that are bounded by latitudes 31°41' and…"
"Cool. It seems that Part 97 will allow these transmitters to be legally operated.
I'm not aware of any easing of the requirement for FCC ID number and certifications, at least for the Part 15 transmitters I've worked with.…"
"Sounds like you are very familiar with part 97 of the rules...That seems to me to be the most likely place for this radio to comply with FCC rules and be legal.
I am very sure that it is not a 15.247 transmitter. That rule set requires a…"
"I don't think the 433 radios are legal for HAM...There is no provision to transmit your call sign. That's required in the HAM band, AFAIK, but I'm not familiar with Part 97 of CFR 47.
There is an Amateur band in the 902-928Mhz…"
"I think we all agree that what this guy did is bad for the hobby...
Let's show the FAA, the FBI and other law enforcement that we hate what happened and help them find this guy...and offer him up to them. Don't protect him,…"
"I am quite sure that the 3DR radios have no certifications anywhere in the world. That doesn't mean they are illegal to sell or operate.
What I don't know, and have asked, is ARE they legal to sell and operate in the USA, and…"
"I understand that I can see the satellite count in the telemetry logs. I've not experienced the problem, well, once, but I recognized it as a mythical home location acquired when the satellite count was low. I armed almost…"
"HDOP seems like a good way to determine a solid fix for home. It could even become a user modifiable parameter in MP...
I took a look around the NMEA 0183 protocol. It appears that there is a parameter that indicates that a position is…"
"I'm not sure how the 3D lock is handled in the software. So take what I say with a grain of salt.
Most of the GPS that I have worked with actually report 2D and 3D lock in the NMEA stream. If so, I would fully expect that each…"
"I like the idea of the pilot being able to override any of the auto modes. When things go wrong, the faster I can regain control, the better. It takes a moment to switch from one mode to another, sometimes that's too long and the…"
"Maybe a conditional state? When RTL is requested as part of a mission, or switch activation, etc allow user input. When RTL is triggered as a failsafe condition, such as when the PPM signal goes away, or other method of failsafe is…"
"Loiter is something I've been trying to tune. I've seen a couple references to it in the thread.
I have the APM2.0 hardware, with the MediaTek on the daughter board which is soldered to the main board. I've updated the…"
"Maybe someone with edit authority can go into the specific part of the Wiki that each question is related to, copy and paste the question with a link back to the forum where the answer is.
I like dividing the thread out too! Have a release…"
