In the spirit of finally getting around to things, I got the HobbyKing EPP FPV plane in the air, FPV style!
The video is of my 3rd FPV flight, so pardon the less-than-ideal flying skills. I've done a handfull of flights non-FPV, but quite frankly I'm rubbish at flying that way. I suppose that's to be expected since this is the first RC plane I've ever flown, so hopefully I'll improve in the future.
As mentioned, the frame is the HK EPP FPV. I haven't put the APM in it yet, since I don't really want to switch the board between the quad and this thing each time. I've made a few modifications, among which include better wing mounting and modularity. At some point I'll post some pictures of the setup.
My current goal is to add flaperon capability for easier landings and shorter runways, as well as better photography characteristics. Of course, I'll be diving into the ArduPlane stuff when I have some time...
Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start (PIDs, mounting location/method, etc) for adding the APM? Does the current code support flaperons in some manner (whether enabled in the code, or solely on the tx)?
