Hello,I'm running arduIMU v.D and I cannot get the code to compile if I use either analogRead/Write features. I get the following:core.a(wiring_analog.c.o):(.data.analog_reference+0x0): multiple…Continue

Gyro Rate Data question

Hi guys,I'm new to arduimu and IMU's in general and am wondering how to make Arduimu print gyro rate information in deg/sec? I can print the Euler angles and get another arduino to read that data.…Continue

Hi guys,I'm installing APM 2.0 in my plane and have the board oriented as in the picture. Which orientation should I select for AHRS_ORIENTATION? I think it should be roll 270 yaw 180, but I cannot…Continue

Using analogRead with ArduIMU v3

Hello,I'm running arduIMU v.D and I cannot get the code to compile if I use either analogRead/Write features. I get the following:core.a(wiring_analog.c.o):(.data.analog_reference+0x0): multiple definition of `analog_reference'arduimu.cpp.o:(.data.analog_reference+0x0): first defined hereSomething about the way arduimu works seems to break the analog features.It looks like I need to do some direct port manipulation to read analog pin 0-4 (the pins I desire to read). Does someone have some…See More

FPV Camera Mount

Posted on April 18, 2013 at 8:44pm 4 Comments

I can't be the only one who has had some trouble coming up with a good way to mount an FPV camera on their quad. So I designed a simple snap together mount that I would like to share! This thing presses together and glues to your frame with some hot glue. It weighs 5 grams. I designed it with universal (should…

EPP FPV Wing Project

Posted on October 24, 2012 at 8:19pm 18 Comments

I have designed my own flying wing and had it cut from flyingfoam. I would love the input of some of the members of DIYDRONES. The span is 60", I chose an MH60 airfoil and added about 2 deg washout. I cutout the motor mount and servo mounts on my CNC router.…

hi exaustgas. :)

I read that you set up your HK EPP FPV in october. does it work well with your params?

cheers, stefan

I haven't bought the apm 2.5+ board yet, because I was afraid that it won't work well with the epp fpv. ;) Maybe I'll order it within the next days. Hopefully the navigation is working well because I live in an alpine area and a navigation failure will lead to an unrecoverable plane.. :P cheers
