After diving in to my first quad project and ordering a ton of stuff from HobbyKing and learning their ins and outs, like not ordering unless 10+ (BTW Turingy 9 is back in stock now), I've been…Continue
"I just bought some props from http://www.foxtechfpv.com/ They shipped them within a few hours of placing the order and the prices seemed pretty good.
I have spent a fortune at HobbyKing, and for the most part, I think they are fine. Although,…"
"I don't think win 7 vs xp will make much of a difference, but I could never find the RTL on Close in XP but didn't have a problem. http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm are the latest drivers, you could check device manager for…"
"I've used mission planner quite a bit in fusion with no problems, in virtual xp, server 03, and win 7 under snow leopard. Does Arduino connect inside fusion? I'm assuming you have latest ftdi drivers. Does the cli mode work in either…"
"I was looking into this a few months ago and at least then there was a confirmed Mono glitch when it comes to Serial ports. I could never get past that error. Since Mono is an open source copy of .NET it still struggles at the fringes of…"
"If you have to arm to the left then that is backwards yaw. One thing I forgot to mention that may be helpful is to notice if the blue led on the bottom board is blinking fast or sitting solid or blinking slow ( see the wiki to confirm as I've…"
"I would check your receiver outputs to be sure the assumed channels 1234 are mapped to the correct outputs/apm Ins. Use an old servo and be sure the numbers of what Chan number does what match the wiki. Your radio setup or mode can affect this. The…"
"I was just shopping for the same thing, and could not find aluminum square tube locally. Then I remembered what I had learned on DIYDrones - Look in the bathroom design section of a Home Depot or hardware store for aluminum towel bars. They sell…"
"Sorry for your loss! I have had two instances where I was hovering low toward the end of the battery and I lost control and it flipped over and spun the motors on high upside down with no throttle response (locked on mid-high) and also unarming not…"
"I may be stating something obvious, but I had a similar mix of issues and discovered a hair sized wire fragment shorting some radio output pins. so the ppm encoder/failsafe chip wasn't starting up correctly. I bought a whole new apm board…"
"Funny this is in the new code. My slider popped a solder point a few weeks ago (insert crash story here) and I ended up removing it completely after mangling a solder pad trying to fix it. To set CLI/FLY mode at boot I now jump the middle pin to…"
"My problem turned out to be a tiny short over some of the radio pins, preventing the PPM board from starting up properly. I found this out only after getting a new APM board, but now things are progressing quickly with a half dozen great, stable…"
"I'm having general mavlink problems (ie. not connecting) and have tried everything over the last few days. in CLI setup everything (gyro, accel, baro, compass, gps, etc) is responding, it boots up to fly mode properly and 'Ready to…"
After diving in to my first quad project and ordering a ton of stuff from HobbyKing and learning their ins and outs, like not ordering unless 10+ (BTW Turingy 9 is back in stock now), I've been looking 'outside the box' mainly for Chinese-priced counter rotating propeller options to buy in bulk and variety for testing. I came across this site that seems really new but similar to HK. I plan to place a test order for a handful of props but curious if anyone else had seen or ordered from them.…See More
