Dear Diydrone members, I am stuck and I really hope that one of you might be able to help me. As indicated in my previous post I am able to successfully build and fly a 450 size electric heli. I have a 50 size nitro heli and I wanted to make it aut
The traditional heli wiki has a page on how to setup traditional heli. However it is very old and it talks of APM 2.X rather than the current PixHawk. I build a traditional heli and it fly’s pretty good. For other people who might want to build th
Now that 3DR no longer carries DF13 cables, many people are having trouble getting hold on to them. So I am starting a thread where hopefully people who have information can share where we can get this from.
The documentation states that the sonar in the optical flow sensor is not accurate enough, so it needs LIDAR. I am using pulse light LIDAR. My question is can be remove the sonar in the optical flow sensor. I ask this because I plan to use another
The HIL simulation using APM 2.5 was working great. However today I updated the mission planner to the latest version ( 1.3.25) and it does not work anymore. I switch back to the previous version ( 1.3.17) I was using, and it works fine. So it appea
The new 3D robotics quad Kit does not come with sonar mount bar. In that case, I was wondering how people install the sonar on it. I have a Sonar mount from the old quad but it does not fit in the new quad. I was wondering how other people have ins
I have upgraded all my vehicles to APM2.5 or PIX HAWK. Which means that the old APM 1.0 I had are lying on my bench unused. They are perfeclty good pieces of hardware and I am sure some one can put it to good use. So if you want it please let me kn
I have some of the old ESC's shipped by 3dRobotics. It does not have the SimonK firmware. I was wondering if I can flash it with the SiminK firmware. If yes then what setting do we use to build the firmware. By “setting”, I mean what is this type
I got a brand new APM1 recently. I soldered it quickly. But when I tried to upload the firmware the mission planner could not detect the APM version. I have not debugged it completely bit seems that it does not have the boot loader. It also appear
I got the 3D Robotics optical flow device few weeks back. Yesterday I soldered the connecters and loaded the sketch " AP_OpticalFlow_test.pde" to an Arduino mini pro. I selected digital pin 10 to be the chip select pin (NCS).
As indicated in the manual I programmed the ESC by connecting it directly to the throttle channel of the receiver. I connected all the 4 motor together so that it can be programmed simultaneously. It works fine however it appears that one
In the download area I see the params file for airplanes ( bixler, etc). However I do not see any params file for the Arducopter Quad. Mine is the 3D robotics Quad frame. Can someone please point me to a location where I can get the params file.
