Splash drone modification
Hi I'm new here from Melbourne, I bought a splash drone fishing drone. It was ok never flew quite as nice as my old phantom 3 ever did. Anyway it run out of battery 350m out to sea and took a load of water and everything is toasted. It does turn on but won't arm. Im thinking of gutting it but motors and the drop mechanism and putting a custom drone internals Now I literally have no idea where to begin with this. All I need is 500m range and GPS return to home and a trigger for drop mech . I…Read more…
Guys, I was thinking that it would be good to get out and have a DIYDrones Brisbane get together. These were popular down south in Melbourne and as a recent mover up to Brisbane, I would like to continue hosting the meets.
Is anyone interested in catching up? If so, head over to the Brisbane group to continue the chat (and sorry for the repost).
Why no use it, even if you stack it? You just may change your mind
Wow dreams can come true, I have always been interested in robotics and would love to get involved in uav's but like everything way out of my league. I can only put my hand up and see what happens thanks James and great gift to the forum
So this year I decided to get into UAV's, and went and bought myself a second hand X8. But six months on, and I haven't used it.
Thing is, I've also tried selling it, but after a few interested punters, I wasn't able to clinch the deal.
So here's my proposal -
If anyone here, or someone you know, would like my X8, free of charge, I'm willing to part with it. Preferably for someone who can't afford a new one.
It's hardly been used - original owner only flew it a few times, so it's still in its box, and comes with a tonne of extra controllers and so forth.
So please hit me up. It's a great machine, looking for a home!
Are there any multirotor racing groups in Sydney or NSW??
If so does anyone have any contacts?
Hi Fred, I think the USB radio uses the FT232R chip http://www.datasheetdir.com/FT232RL+USB
So if you unsolder pins 1 and 5 on the chip you can connect wires to the pads on the PCB and solder these wires to the TX and RX pins of APM.
So, yes techincally possible, but not something many would attempt. I run the RFD900 modules, so I can't check one physically. Maybe there is a breakout connection somewhere more convenient on the board?
Hi all need little help as always only on weekend getting ready go out sunday
my Telemetry air side has died on spares can i convert usb module to air radio ?
And your right again. You would need an antenna of a gain greater than 10db to get yourself in trouble with the 3DR 915 at maximum output. That's another reason to get the 915 over the 433.
