Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

Hobby for now. I really want to improve my aerial cinematography skills. I'm mostly interested in making videos with nice technique, and editing great music.

I can't get either to work. I am setting up a mission that has one waypoint, then a photogrammetry segment, and then a waypoint to get me home. I set a camera action for Camera by Time. All waypoints and the photogrammetry section are set to Stop…

I am a new user to UgCS. I really need to be able to do a corridor scan where I define a path (like a power line or a pipeline or a railroad line) and have the flight paths created automatically based on my camera parameters/GSD. QGroundControl has…

"Hi Christian,
I received your 2-lipo kit for Pixhawk1 from the American supplier Craft and Theory a few days ago. When I assembled the wiring, I accidentally soldered the BEC leads to the Y point of the +, and the - parallel harness. Your diagram…"

"OK, good to hear you are using the Multistar 10C batteries.
I'll order the suggested parts tonight. Did you order from Mauch, or one of the US resellers? Craft and Theory has a Pixhawk/2 lipo kit.
Thanks!"

"Thanks for taking a look Justin. I really appreciate it. Always amazing when total strangers are willing to help out. I suck at building and flying, but at least I have interacted with some really cool people.
I'm using this battery:…"

"Hey Justin,
I finally figured out that the rcou... parameters were actually the motors. Thanks for the graph. Does the voltage/current graph concern you at all? Seems strange that the voltage drops, and current spikes as soon as I throttle up.

"Hey Justin, Thank you for taking such a detailed look at my crash. I really appreciate it. Your timing is especially good, as I plan on testing her again on Friday.

Well, I should have taken the advice of, pretty much everybody, and built a simpler model as my first build. But I didn't... I jumped right in and built a DYS D800 X8, and a Tarot X6 at the same time. I took the D800 X8 out yesterday for her maiden…

Greg replied to Greg's discussion Help with figuring out a crash and subsequent wierdness in IRIS
"Thanks for the suggestion. Re-calibrating the ESCs seems to have done the trick. For the longest time I launched the copter in loiter mode (I did not know better). I now launch in stab. The copter still looks like it wants to pitch over when…"

Greg replied to Greg's discussion Where can I find Iris+ motors? in IRIS
"I made the big mistake of launching about 3 feet away from me. Drone drifted towards me, and I was backed up against a tree. I blocked the Iris+ with my hand before it hit my face. I never dreamed that those little props/motors could cut me that…"
