Scott Plunkett actually had a near ready product back in 2011 (developed separately and in parallel to the little box I made). We actually collaborated at the time with 3DR staff, with Scott providing his electrical layouts (August 2011, I…"
Hello all,I have built an v-shaped octo-copter, with a 5000mah, 35c, 3s battery, 12gauge wire running from the center out to the arms, where I split the 12 gauge into 4 smaller gauge wires to go to the escs.I have 10x45props with Motor…
"More testing, I can get it up to 6' now, but as soon as I touch a roll pitch yaw stick, I plummet. All the pops were fine.
Especially yaw, I end up with half the motors at 1200us output, and the other four at 1800. Have to see what could be causing…"
Hello all,I have finally, finally finished building my octo, and had two test flights. Or rather, hops.I have 10x45props with Motor AC2836-358, 880Kv from 3DRobotics. At the time, they were specified to provide 433grams of lift at 50% and 1095grams…
"Just to play devil's advocate, and knowing nothing about the specifics of this case, but having seen the other side of expensive projects;
-"as part of" does not tell us what part of 20m went towards these things.
-"has been developed" suggests a…"
I have much of the USB stack working on copter-GCS, but cannot do that last (small) bit without a tablet and some debugging.
Work is nuts, but at some point (months), once I buy a tablet, I can tie in the USB. All my projects have been frozen…"
The correct protocol is MAVLink using version 9 on arducopter 2.6.
Someone has tested the app for me using MAVLink 1.0, but I cannot do so myself yet, as I am still flying a 1280 board. Work is crazy for the past and next few months, so…"
"To be honest, I have only ever used the library on android, building it using "ndk-build" in the android NDK. I haven't touched it in awhile though. I've not had this build error come up before.
"I'm familiar with the 400ft rules in north america, nice to see they are consistent :)
No argument about the cowboy/commercial comment giving a bad rep, that indeed is a problem, as is the crashing in populated areas, regardless of commercial or…"
"Looks good. I'm still in the process of designing with solidworks and then CNC cutting it myself. Can you comment on the end-mill/bit sizes you used to cut (especially the slots)? I'm still learning how to do CNC."
