I'm new to MavProxy (and to MavLink data in general) but just succeeded in installing it and running it interactively on a Raspberry Pi physically connected to the Telem2 port on a Pixhawk2.1/Cube. My question now is how I can non-interactively (an
I built a largish fixed-wing UAV (Hugin 2.6m, roughly 8 kg MTOW if I recall). It's definitely too large to hand launch, and it needs a surprisingly long takeoff run (especially on grass) to get airborne and clear of trees etc. This is fine when I h
I've just completed a quadcopter build using a Pixhawk2.1 with the stock power brick provided. I've verified that the battery monitor displays the correct voltage, but I have no good way to measure the current -- can anyone tell me the correct amper
I have a newly built 450mm quadcopter (approx. 850 grams, not counting battery) that is about ready for its maiden flight. It's equipped with a Pixhawk2.1, and I've calibrated ESCs, magnetometers, accelerometers, etc, and everything looks good.
I'm intrigued by the possible applications of underwater drones, but as someone new to this subject, I'm clueless as to how navigation is managed for a vehicle that remains submerged for any length of time. I assume magnetic orientation is available
I'm a fixed-wing guy (so far), but I have a possibly naive question about the maximum altitude that off-the-shelf multirotor (quad or hex?) drone can reliably reach if your objective is to quickly loft a modest (say, <200 gram) payload exactly vert
I'm building a fixed wing UAV with a 2.6 m wingspan and a fairly large fuselage bay. The electric motor is in the back (pusher style), and it's driven by a 6s 10000mAh LiPo battery and a 60A ESC. I'd like to be able to put the battery in an adjusta
I'm working on getting my new Pixhawk2 up and running in an RC plane, and I keep running into the problem that I don't have specific connectors or cables for making connections between the various components. For example, I don't have a 3-wire cable
