I just noticed this at the Chinese on-line retailer, ThanksBuyer.com

They are pricing the bundled versions attractively.  Obviously made to compete against the APM micro 3.1

Flight controller

FC bundled with power supply

FC, power supply, GPS unit

If anyone makes the leap, perhaps you could keep us informed on your experiences.

Happy flying all!!

Hello
It's not broken..
Simply it doesn't give enough power.. I have another one and asap I'll try with that
Otherwise a bec with attopilot to measure V and A
With 5v power I went flying for 10 minutes, but it's a risk..

I don't know if this is the right place, to ask but its just a simple question, Just got my copy in the mail today, I know where the GPS connets to the controller, but what about the compass (blue and white wire)?

If I remember well they go near the GPS, i2c slot. Try the 2 different combinations (like tx/rx and rx/tx)

ok got it working. it would help if i plugged thme in correctly..... sitting at my bench inside the garage, this gps has pinpointed my location. kind of scary how acurate it is

Ok and to see if the mag is working just use a magnet and move it around the GPS. Look at the HUD in Mission Planner to see if your heading changes

all working great. now to finish my hex so I can see how it flys =)

keep digging up this thread.......so I got power issues figured out, now when I try to calibrate my tx, things get a little weird. I fly mode 2, but what its doing is calling the channels the wrong thing and I have no idea on how to cahnge that.....also can't find any info on what the indicator lights mean, and the copter wiki isnt helping out much.

nvm....figured it out in the parameter settings.... now for the blinky lights.... meanings? copter wiki doesnt seem to help

I don't look at them :-)

Just power, connect mission planner or 3DR tower on my smartphone to control everithing is ok and then go fly!

I use them just to control some things like the "autotrim" mode enabling.

If you pull the yaw right and throttle down for 15 seconds more or less (your case is left stick down/right like my one) you can see the front led blinking fast.

That is autotrim function enabled

Bye

I never tried to figure them out. I just got one of these and it made it simple: HK external LED module

  • Blinking Red = Disarmed
  • Blinking Blue = No GPS Lock
  • Solid Red = Armed
  • Solid Blue = GPS 3D Lock

In the absence of telemetry, it's all you really need to know and you can put it where it's easy to see.

That looks a lot easier... Thanks
