Creating a dedicated camera photo logger with IMU, GPS, and trigger sensor.

Started this discussion. Last reply by Pau Nov 1, 2016. 16 Replies

Problem 1:The APM .log files contain CAM messages based on when the autopilot commanded the camera to be triggered. It doesn't know when or if the camera actually triggered. This can result in CAM…Continue

Autolanding failure. Tip stall? on turn to final causing uncommanded roll to 80 deg.

Today's autolanding attempt with my Skywalker 1880 was a failure. I attempted to insert some Do_Change_Speed commands to incrementally slow down from cruise speed to landing speed. On the base…Continue

I'm flying (Plane) in very steep terrain and I want to be able to loiter over a point to climb to an given altitude before continuing on with the mission. Same for my approach, I want to loiter over…Continue

"Hi guys,  As mentioned by the other people, the camera "hot shoe" approach mentioned here sounds really good, and would like to implement it... Something like RTK GPS would not really be that great if it isn't represented…"

"@M Awais, it's not a good idea to use Cruise mode for landing because you don't have good control. In Cruise mode throttle controls airspeed, not thrust directly, and elevator controls climbs and descents via throttle, not pitch…"

iskess commented on Jacques Eloff's blog post Quadplane Demo Video
"Jacques,what increase in amps or watts do you find it requires for cruise when flying with the quad booms on? My Skywalker seems to need about 160W rather than 120W, that's +25%. I haven't seem many people post their findings yet, so I…"
