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

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
