"As an experiment I loaded up the latest APM into another Pixhawk, loaded in the Iris.params, disabled second compass and set compass 1 to internal (since there's no GPS) and ran the compass calibration and got wildly different numbers at:
I have an Iris that I've put the GPS on a mast. Orientation is both facing forward.After dealing with APM Planner 2.0 hanging up on getting CoA (this really was frustrating...) I ditched AP 2.0 and switched to Mission Planner to upgrade the…
3DR has been moving stuff around their site since the Iris+ release etc and hidden the old 3DR Iris page.Does anyone have the old specifications or link to then? I want to run some numbers through ecalc and need the data points.Thanks1
"I think if you buy the gimbal separately you won't get the 3DR plate you need to mount? I remember reading that... there's some 3D prints for a Tarot mounting plate for the Iris if that's the case (~$30 to get printed)
"This is OT to your question about repairing it... but since you mention it was loose, I wonder if it flopped over and contacted the prop causing it to snap off. I just check and not all positions will clear the prop.
It may not be a question about…"
Programmed a really basic navigation light setup. It slowly pulses for now.
Was able to fit all the wires inside the case (took a while to negotiate the wires. Wished there was better cable management)
Routed all the…"
"I'm gonna assume you have some programming experience. Plugging in custom sensors, unless explicitly supported by the Pixhawk codebase and ground control configuration will need custom code.
That being said...
The 3DR Iris uses the firmware…"
"Nope, not building one. I already ordered another 3.5A switch step-down regulator but this one looks way easier to get hook up and way cheaper. Darn. I'll probably order this one instead and put the one I ordered in my bin of parts.
"The Iris will auto land (or should) when the battery voltage gets low. I think it's around 10.5 volts.
I leave Droid Planner on and very loud (I prefer this over Mission Planner), it normally tells me bat voltage and I land (or Iris will) before it…"
"For my 3dr Iris setup I went with a Hyperion 730i Net3 charger and converted an old HP server power supply for 12v following TJinTech HP Server PSU conversion. You'll need to buy some 10-12awg silicon wire from hobbyking and a female banana plug to…"
