I had a crash today caused by the loss of the RC transmitter signal. I was in a designated safe area and nothing bad happened except for the plane, but I am sure the crash could have been avoided if I had a deeper understanding on how to operate ardu
" If you own a drone, you must register it with the Federal Aviation Administration's Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) registry. A federal law effective December 21, 2015 requires unmanned aircraft registr
Is there any reason the servo gain is not mapped to airspeed?The program requires a roll rate that represents the output for the pid tuning to work, but a 1/4 throw gives less of a roll rate at stall speed than top speed.
In a plane you use the power module or attopilot to measure current and voltage of the main batteries. In a plane the servo rails must be powered by it's own power source, and with the zenner diode, if the power module fails to provide power t
Hello all. I would like to ask you, dear members of the arduplane forum, if the lenght, inner diameter and type of material of the air tube of the airspeed sensor matter in terms of affecting the precision of the sensor. I have searched all over the i
I have a generic APM power module. When I measure the power coming out of the module I find it to be 5.1-5.2V. When I measure the voltage across A01 I find it to be 4.7-4.8V. When I look at th3e telemetry data it shows 4.7-4.8v, it varies a bit wit
