PixHawk/APM :: Thinking new ideas

Ok, so the pixhawk has been out for a little while and i have been away doing some other computer web geek chit.... What i am wondering is what the community is doing with this new power and capacity of the pixhawk. Is anyone using it to talk to networks wirelessly? How about nodes of rovers communicating with copters? How about lasers or image processing? What about for security?! Just curious....cause i am pretty sure all of this is possible with the new pixhawk yea?Really excited to hear…See More

"I recently setup a similar setup for my son and had the same problem after 100" jsut crappy receptions. What I found was the antenna SMA connector did not have the pin in it to connector. This is the same as running the TX without an antenna.…"

"DG,this kit is good enough to begin but I would prefer: - 700-800 TVL sony cam - 600mW TX minimum, the Immersion RC one it light and great - pinwheel or cloverleaf RX/TX antennas - If you want to use goggles, no need to buy this RX as most of…"

"I don't have experience with either brand, but are you sure you're not mixing left and right polarisation? If you do that, pretty much the only signal to get through will be the reflection."

Not all 5.8GHz Circular Polarized Antenna are created equal

When i first got into this FPV thing a year ago i bought and ImmersionRC circular polarized antenna set that seemed to work quite well with a 5.8GHz 600mW immersionRC transmitter...but i lost the transmitter antenna and had to find a replacement.Being poor at the moment i looked for a cheaper option and found this:…See More

"I have simular plan but with a minicopter. I  just bought the ecksfibre 230mm for testing the AUAV-X1.(small pixhawk style fc) I am also looking for a small and light gps module. Same for a small 433mhz telemetry radio. Anyone an idea for that?"
