Yesterday i got my Team Black Sheep (TBM) Discovery top and bottom plate. Today i started working on te "rebuild".
As for the TBM there are no cleare APM 2.0 mounting hole's so i had to make some. But first the result!


I wanted a clean look, and good reception for the GPS so my APM 2.0 is mounted on top. Here are some picture's of houw i did this.

upside down, the long srews fit in 4 of the 6 hole's at the "center" of the top TBS board.
The APM fit's perfectly on the 4 screw's exactly the same as i had before.
Next, mounting the FPV transmitter.
This is the bottom of the top plate, using the same screws as the one's used for mounting the top.
a bit of velcro and a twrap to sucure the reciever, also on the bottom of the top plate. All together give's a verry clean look. 
Nextup the android planner got the cheapes android 4.0 tablet i found got it to work whit the Droidplanner
Here is some "proof" that it works whit the A13 tablet. Not at al a fancy video but youll see it in action.
Now i need a way to mount the tablet so i designed this.
as you can see it works, not perfect but for a prototype just fine!
Lastup some remaidening the first flight after the rebuild.

Quad First flight

It took me a while to get to this point, Build log (in dutch) but now i am almost there. Yes almost, I've got myself a very strange arming procedure. But enjoy the video first.



Arming procedure:

  1. Connect copter whit USB to laptop.
  2. Let APM 2.0 Boot
  3. Connect Lipo (laptop crash if i do this)
  4. Hear 4 motors arm
  5. turn on the camera ;-)
  6. fly

If i don't follow this procedure i am getting only 1 motor to arm Not really the way to go but for me its not possible to find the solution.
