Hi. I`m new at r/c and I ordered some parts for a tricopter, and now I`m second guessing if they work together. If you could look over these parts and give some feedback it would be greatly appreciated
Hobbyking KK2.0 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board
Turnigy Park300 Brushless Outrunner 1380kv
8045 SF Props 2pc Standard Rotation/2 pc RH Rotation (Red)
TURNIGY Plush 18amp Speed Controller
TGY-211DMH Metal gear Coreless Digital Servo w/ Heat Sink 2.3kg / .10sec / 16g
Turnigy nano-tech 2200mah 3S 25~50C Lipo Pack
Nylon XT60 Connectors Male/Female (5 pairs) GENUINE
There is actually more to adjust with APM 2.5 than the KK2 and you need a PC connected to do it. That said, the APM 2.5 is an outstanding controller. You only really need a GPS to add to the APM to get the full features...RTH, waypoint, position hold, etc. You can use it without the GPS, but won't have position hold, Waypoint, or RTH capability. I've never worried out having the frame perfectly level before powering it up and taking off. Just do the accelerometer calibration and you should be good.
Can't help on that one. Sounds like you have a 3D gimbal. You'd need to check with the manufacturer on how to set it up.
Emi, so when you went to the APM, did the tricopter fly better ( easier)?
APM does have a 'follow me' flight mode. I don't know how to use it...I'm sure it's a GPS connected to a computer, or similar, that is linked with the APM via telemetry. Personally I think it'd be more of a novelty thing, but I'm sure it'd have its uses too.
if your pitch or roll, )I forget right now, is set to zero, the cam will always go to one side. you have to have a number like 20 or 30, you have the cam hooked up to a10 and a 11 correct.
I know I read this in the apm manual about the cam always going to one side if the default is set to zero.
look under Mission planner, advance parameters, and scroll down you'll see it there.
