giu replied to Terry Brooks's discussion APM2 and separate GPS unit ? in the group ArduCopter User Group
"In fact, I do not understand why they put the GPS in the middle of the board. There is also heat which can cause problems. The gps should always be put in such a way radio interference and leakage are minimized. The best is putting it outside the…"

MookaFrame: New 3D frame

Posted on December 2, 2011 at 3:25am 20 Comments

I am trying to convince me that AC2 can fly better...

So, in my spare time, I designed this new frame. I think to send in production (ponoko?) as soon as possible.

The concept is that everything, especially motors, must be protected.

I definitely must add the landing gear, propeller protection and camera mount, shouldn't I?

Any suggestion appreciated.…

[SOLVED] XBee 868 MHz two ways communication

Posted on June 15, 2011 at 3:30pm 9 Comments

One of the things not clearly said in the Wiki is that when you set Xbee communication, you MUST define correctly the addresses of the modules, otherwise you'll not get right communication.

After, 8 hours of chatting, writing post forum and headache, I noticed this fact when I tried a range test of Xbee by using X-CTU tool by Digi. One module was in loopback (just connect the DDI to DDO on the planeboard of the Xbee, and, obviously, connect the 5V), and the other one was connected to the… Continue

Configure 6 flight modes for Futaba T7CP

Posted on June 13, 2011 at 3:30am 27 Comments

I bought a cheap RC Futaba T7CP on ebay, but I spent 3 days in order to understand the right configurations of switches to enable 6 flight modes.

Here, my solution. Hope useful for the community.

(I used some hints from other blogs)



1. I used SWE and SWA. SWE is a 3-position switch. while SWA is on the left and it is a 2-position switch

2. You have to set End Point, SubTrim and RT in MIX. First, set the ENDPOINT for CH5 to be 50%(UP) and 52%(DOWN). You can tune…
