"I'm starting a new project with a Readymaderc, Anaconda. It has enough room to do almost anything I ant to in it. I'm going to fab new landing gear and run an 18 inch prop with a low KV motor. With 3, 4s 5200mah batteries, I should have enough…"
I'd like to use a small gimbal on my airframe to keep a directional antenna, pointed at my ground station. With 5.8ghz the helical antennas are quite small. I don't see a reason it can't be done with the setroi function. Has anyone tried this and…
"The problem we have is not the technological problems involved in solving the problem. It's mostly that powerfull forces want this to be seen as unsafe. Hence this thread, This thread is based on a lie, A lie told by someone with something to gain…"
"They monitor hundreds. the work much like a scanner. But what we already have is plenty. adding a scanning 2.4 ghz or 433mhz receiver and a high gain antenna, (full scale planes have lots of room compared to our little craft) would cost a couple…"
"I completely agree with Paul. Yes.. it's a legal boondoggle But the FAA is about to ban us outright based on information given them by RC circle flyers, at the AMA, that don't even understand how their planes work.
If we don't do something we will…"
"There are some very smart guys working very hard on mavlink, which is open source. I'm willing to bet they could come up with a collision avoidance system that could be standardized and greatly reduce the possibility of near misses like this one."
"There' isn't yet but it would be easy to set up, with existing, cheap off the shelf, telemetry radios. Most Uavs use these already. They transmit gps location altitude, heading and speed just like a commercial aircraft's transponder, Just at much…"
"I never figured out what the problem was exactly, but I updated the firmware to the most current version. and the issue hasn't happened again. It still wants you to power on the transmitter after the quad is powered up, which is weird, but workable. "
"Also, this story is total B.S. anyway. It never happened. I's a lie... I called the FAA. they have no record of this. I just spoke to Vicki Growler, the editor of the Idaho statesman she is not aware of this 5 day old story. It seem to me, someone…"
"Yes, The AMA covers you, anywhere you legally fly. Provided you are following their prescribed rules. This includes a spotter, with a buddy box, so if you are flying FPV. Probably not.
Make no mistake. The AMA is not our friend when it comes to FPV…"
"Crop dusters have a vested interest in shutting down small UAV use. They are afraid UAVs are going to put them out of business, and they are right. small UAV's can do the job cheaper, better, safer, and with less over spray to damage the…"
"Jean-Louis, I hope you can help me. I cant unlock the motors on my Nova. I had several great flights on it then the moters just quit unlocking. I've checked off the normal stuff and the rx and tx are bound and working properly. I think it's…"
"I'm having trouble getting the motors to unlock. I've tried all the common fixes. Trims are centered. Switches are up. it performed flawlessly the first two flights. one using the tx the second in auto. I pluged servos into the rx and it moves but…"
