Jeremy Stromsoe replied to Randy's discussion figuring out the Antenna Tracker
"Hey all, just got done with a fully custom antenna tracker which:

1) does not require a laptop to run
2) can accept a roughly 2lb or so antenna (or camera if you like :)) 
3) works beautifully, even at close range
4) is fully tested
5) can be made…"

Jeremy Stromsoe replied to Jeremy Stromsoe's discussion Dragonlink v3 Bluetooth connection to Mavutil
"Hey all, still looking for a solution to this.  I think if you've got any instructions that would help someone connect APM Planner 2 over Bluetooth that would apply to what I'm trying to accomplish.  If you have had success doing this over the Drago…"

All,  Appreciate the help here.  Having quite a bit of trouble attempting to connect Mavlink telemetry over Bluetooth serial.  Someone must to have tried this (run a Mavproxy GCS with the latest Dragonlink).  See all the nitty gritty details here an…

Jeremy Stromsoe commented on keeyen pang's blog post Dragon Link V3 Advance system connect to Mission Planner via Blue Tooth for Dummy.
"Just thought I would save some others future trouble.  DO NOT try and send serial mav data at above the 19200 that is suggested in this post.  The 57600 bluetooth serial is fine between the transmitter and the ground station, but in Mission Planner…"

Jeremy Stromsoe replied to Quentin Mayberry's discussion MinimOSD baud rate
"Does anyone know if the arducam OSD software has been updated lately ?  This post is 6 years old and I'm having trouble finding the source code anywhere... mainly for the same reasons here.  I need to set the baud rate for the OSD to 19200, and righ…"

Background:  We've got a large scale powered glider  that has been flying pretty well, except for one thing that is baffling.  We've done Autotune, setup and checked each parameter carefully in the list and wondering if we potentially missed somethi…

"Michael,

I'm outputting NMEA strings via Mission Planner with my Plane hooked up to a secondary RTK GPS.  I'm getting funny altitude number coming out in the NMEA so I'm wondering what is the origin of the strings.  Are they from GPS 1? GPS 2?  Is…"

Jeremy Stromsoe replied to Nicolas Brieger's discussion DGPS / RTK Corrections over MissionPlanner
"All,

Out of curiosity has anyone tried to use the ctrl-g GPS menu to send the NMEA data via UDP or TCP (rather than serial)?  If its in the works I wont bother any further, but if no one has tried this or its not been thought of I might suggest it…"

Jeremy Stromsoe commented on keeyen pang's blog post Dragon Link V3 Advance system connect to Mission Planner via Blue Tooth for Dummy.
"Has anyone done range testing with this system USING the telemetry?  Did telemetry feed have dropouts before the RC Link?  I remember reading a couple bits on the Dragonlink site that telemetry range might be less than the RC range.  I'm using this…"

Jeremy Stromsoe replied to Seppo's discussion RFD900, RFD900+ - New long range radio modem
"At this point, just cut the whole plastic thing off and solder on some normal right angle header pins like the original rfd... Seppo does that radio seriously not come with a connector??"

Then you have to make this:


As far as the SIK radio firmware, you can either use mission planner or use RFD Tools

Jeremy Stromsoe replied to Seppo's discussion RFD900, RFD900+ - New long range radio modem
"SOLVED!!

@Seppo

All, this boiled down to a bad whip antenna attached to the ground side RFD900+.  I was flying one day with the tracker and had a buddy troubleshoot hardware by disconnecting individual components.  Once we unscrewed the whip, the…"
