About Me:

I have enjoyed RC ground since I was a boy and always wanted to get into RC air, so now I am.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I would like to fly FPV over my property and use AMP to for some basic loiter and RTL controls.

"Ok, so while on the ground for all of this testing...I tried the calibration procedure many times while APM was in the plane and got wildly different settings and no completely funtional compass results.

"Yea, the wind was blowing to the south and a bit stronger than other days I have tested (maybe 10 mph). I did load the bixler config file and read through the manual files but when the stock bixler configuration worked so well for FBW-A and Stabaliz…"

Hi, I am testing my APM and for some reason when I switch it into Loiter or RTL it will continuously drift south until it is on the edge of my comfort zone and I take control again (300ft maybe). The first circle of Loiter and RTL look good but the…

Chad P replied to Scott Palmer's discussion Easy Star Electronics Chassis (With Pan/Tilt Camera Mount) at DIY Store
"I just got my Bixler Chassis with camera mount and put it together to find that it totally doesn't support the setup of the APM2 board.
You can't access the USB plug-in and you can't access the reset button.  This was VERY disappointing.  It didn't…"

"I would also like the CAD file. 
A CAD file of the Bixler fus would be most useful... That would really be cool.
Anybody?"

I am looking for advice on how to mount my APM2 board.I plan to first put it on a Bixler with a Bixler-electronics chassis purchased from the DIY-Drones Store and then later on a Tri or Quad copter.In looking around I think people are using foam tap…

I have a DX8 would really like to get 6 flight modes out of my 3 position switch (and one additional switch) using only one channel.  There are great instructions on how to do this  here... http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/spektrum-dx8-6-flights-mo…
