  • Hi all, I am starting a project where I want to add two pusher propellers to an X octocopter configuration.

    I wonder if anybody can give me his opinion on the feasibility of doing this on Arducopter.

  • Just throwing this into the mix here and I apologize if it is not the correct forum gents, but there is little time left to take advantage of this great offering. I thought it my duty to bring to your attention this invention from a German group of engineers that may very well put to rest much of FAA worries about LOS/ FPV and Drones falling out of the sky. Check this out. I signed up for an "Early Bird" of this device called the AP Manager (by Gizmotec) that combines two FC's of your choice (their test set up uses two Pixhawk, but it can be any combo, mix or match) and even if both fail it will still control a multirotor or fixed wing craft via the onboard Rx. Watch this http://igg.me/at/AP-Manager/x

    @Austin,

    Make sure that on the MP's radio calibration screen, the green bar for the pitch moves in the opposite direction to the physical stick on your transmitter.  If it moves the wrong way, fix it in the transmitter not by adjusting any arducopter parameters.

    Is simple or super simple mode active?

  • Pixhawk elevator/pitch reverse issue. I just can not get the pixhawk to reverse at all. reverse on my aurora 9 but makes no odds. pick up quad and aileron is fine when I lean it to the right the right motors spin up to relevel it same as when I do it on the left side. but when it comes to the elevator I lean it backwards and the back motors slow down. totally fed up and utterly confused. Can someone else?

  • Thanks mP1. Unfortunately we are leaving early Monday morning so I can't really get it quickly enough from Sydney.

    @David - do you have a web portal? I will order from you in the future.

    Hi Spencer,

    I have a heaps of black motor related stuff (i'm a 3DR distro).  Let me know if you don't have any luck elsewhere.

  • Ive got a spare entire black motor if you want it, in mybox of kool stuff(tm). Pretty sure it works.

  • Oh ouch i thought you meant the bolt to keep the prop from flying off :) not the shaft thingo.

  • @Spencer

    Turns out that blue adapters do screw on black motors. Priv msg your address and ill post 1 or 2 on monday.

Will AHRS_ORIENTATION=8 for Arducopter 3.2.1 on APM 2.5 using a traditional Heli

I have been Reading Chris Olsen posts and watching his videos on Arducopter with traditional Helis using a Pixhawk.I have inherited an older Trex 450 heli with the old Align 3G FBL hardware.  The FBL controller appears to be bad.  So I have an old APM 2.5 without a compass or GPS on board.  I just want to replace the failed Align 3G FBL system with the APM.Now I have to mount the APM under the skids on the heli so the APM will be upside down.I have Two questions.1)  Is the AHRS_ORIENTATION=8…

Maximum number of Lidar for Object Avoidance

Hi all,I'm setting up my PX4-based quad with ST VL53L0X Lidar sensors (I currently have three) and I noticed that line #24 of the current Rangefinder library (here: https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot/blob/master/libraries/AP_RangeFinder/RangeFinder.h#L24) has the maximum number of sensors set to 10 (ten). Am I understanding this correctly? And has anyone ever tried to setup this many rangefinders (or anything close) with any measure of success?Any input/advice will be greatly appreciated.
