Depending on where you are, I have a 450 size quad with Naza, GPS, OSD, camera and video transmitter for sale cheap over on the UK Drone Junk Yard facebook group, complete with 2x 4S batteries and some spares. Just needs a transmitter binding…"
Can anyone provide any suggestions to this issue, with an APM mini, running v3.2.1.It's mounted on a 250 size quad. Problem is that it tries to roll left on take-off.- APM is sited normally, arrow pointing forward. Artificial Horizon (AH) moves…
"Not sure what gimbal you're using, but I had similar with my Tarot gimbal, which I eventually found was caused by one of the screws between the camera mount and gimbal motor shaft being slightly loose (yet felt OK when I manually moved the motor).…"
"Can you use a separate 5.8ghz video transmitter and a 'conventional' screen with a RX, rather than a phone or tablet?This has the advantage of mush faster / smoother video downlink than the wifi from the gopro can offer."
"I had a similar issue on my hex, which was caused by a faulty ESC, on the side it flew towards.
It appeared to spin up OK on take-off, but must have been creating lower thrust than the rest, flying sideways gathering speed until it crashed and broke…"
Lack of redundancy - quads and hexes will generally fall from the sky if any prop / motor / ESC / cable fails. Octos are better.
Battery life issues - many crashes are the result of the low battery warning being too late (or not at…"
"I've not looked at your logs yet, but it sounds like it ran out of power before it landed.
I've had this a few times. I have now set the LiPo alarm trigger voltage higher, and generally manually land it rather than RTL - which usually needs to climb…"
"Yes, the Tarot software is a windows program. If you're on Mac or Linux a virtual machine running XP will do, as long as you pass through the USB port.
Channel positions set on the transmitter, yes.
Nothing needed on the APM, as it's not connected…"
"Yes. I have done exactly that with a DX6i. You'll need to set the channel end positions on the transmitter to prevent the camera moving too far.If you have the Tarot gimbal, the default radio mode is for radio rate mode (or similar), you'll need to…"
