"Forest, do you have your test data someplace where others can look and contribute? Also do you have similar tests for motors and props?
Your work is greatly appreciated, thank you for your contributions to the community!"
"Looks good! Just for clarification, the 3.33V and GND on the bottom of the image are for powering your thermal camera?
Did you ever make a mount? Hooking in to the expansion port 5V or the gimbal 5v power would be nice to keep things…"
"Is there anything I need to do to get the tilt working, like setting a home altitude or something? I can control the tilt servo with the pololu controller program and with Mission Planner, but when I fly the pan servo works find but the tilt…"
"I succeeded in getting the tracker to work via usb using a pololu controller. I can set the ranges and offsets for both pan and tilt. The tracker tracks my drone just fine in pan, however tilt moves to -45 and stays there for the…"
"Randy, do you still have a direct link to the vibe data handy? I get lost in 250+ pages.
And did you try using foam or gel on the daughter board instead of the included silicone spacer for vibration isolation? Even if execution is bad, the concept…"
"Has something changed in either the plugin or Mission Planner recently to break compatibility? I had this working on a computer I just reformatted and I am no longer able to get the HUD to work. Following the same installation…"
"True, the beam with the optics installed is 1.5 degrees, not too useful without scanning. But without the optics the beam is 6 degrees, though the range drops to 5 meters. Not great if you are at 5m/s+, but possibly still useful at low…"
"How about replacing with LIDAR lite, or other lidar? Should be faster than sonar, though at 6+m/s it may still not be fast enough. Are there any changes you'd need to make for LIDAR lite instead of sonar?"
the last one, we are paused so that we can make a nice leap on gimbal technology, using carbon parts and motor optimization. once that is done, i'll know the exact size of the gimbal and build the ship around the gimbal.
