I created a small quad (F450 frame based) for a friend with an apm 2.5 (FW 3.1)As he is just starting out I wanted to make the apm a little less aggressive on the lean angle.By default this is 45°, so I want to reduce this to about 30°…"
On this frame I had no video TX. However on my TBS discovery I use a separate small 3S lipo. I prefer to keep the power source for my quad dedicated to the motors and main controller.
You do not need 12V as all comes down to the quality of…"
Thank you for the positive feedback.
The gimbal controller is running from a 2S battery without BEC.So far this seem to work quite well.The quad is running on a 4S battery which is too high for the gimbal controller and brushless…"
"I had a go today with my F450 test frame.
Today the wind was quit gusty so ideal for some 3.1 testing.
I must say I was (am) impressed.The quad behaved without any problem in winds.Loiter was spot on and RTL worked flawless.Nice job to the…"
"I loaded the 3.1rc8 to my apm2.5 (no external mag) to try out the autotune function.My test setup is a F450 frame with 900KV motors, gemfan e-props 10x5, 20A esc SimonK flashed running on a 3S battery.
After running through the necessary checks and…"
"@ArthurI don't know if it has been asked before but now that bluetooth connection is available would it be possible to also select the bluetooth device from the list of available devices?The reason why I ask is that I had a couple of bluetooth…"
I wanted to create a Mavlink2Spektrum telemetry module where an Arduino captures the mavlink data and sends it via a TM1000 (Spektrum telemetry I²C).
However I'm struggling to get the Mavlink decoding working on my Arduino UNO or NanoI started…"
I noticed you mounted the APM quite in front of the frame allowing you to slide the battery furhter to the front.
Doesn't it give a problem since the APM is not quite in the Cog of the frame?
Another question... The black rubber piece where…"
I agree with ikrase, better of with a 4S battery makes a lot of difference. Had the same issue when using 3S.I'm also using a 4S one in my setup (MT2213-935KV, 20A simonK esc, DJI 10x3.8 props)"
