Hello I was a way from the Arducopter scene for a lengthty period. I still kept the Arducopter 1 with its brittle plastic landing gear and original hardware that I would want to see in the air again. I took it out of service in 2011 after I bent one
I pulled out the Arducopter for renewed trainings yesterday. Lots of snow here and below freezing temp. Still too unskilled and with some wind I lost orientation of direction and steered the wrong way ending up doing a panick snow landing rather tha
I read this post in a another forum where a guy claims 50Hz is insufficient PWM cycle for accomplishing quadcopter stability. Is there a truth in this ? What is the cycle of the ArduPilot PWM outputs that control the motor ESCs?
CAUTION: Before actually mounting propellers make sure to test the motor operation to assure they run in the correct direction, else swap two leads on the specific motor to reverse its rotation direction until all match the picture. Wait with install
Hello I came up with this way of installing the ESCs that I found makes for a neat tucking away of cables. Doing them one by one I noticed that by having the cabling take a natural route around the power board my routing ended up so that while an ES
