I included my Maiden flight video, you can see stabilization works great, Autopilot flight is stable. RC input appears that I need to reduce the throws. If I bank hard and let go the sticks the aircraft will recover and stabilized. If I enage the
I would like to build a Plimp, similar to what Egan labs built. Has anyone attempted to build something similar ? I'd like to build something like it. I've got a spare pixhawk controller to use for the project.
Hi guys.. I wonder of any of you have any ideas on how to reduce a wobble. I went through all the steps as I did when I built the quad and installed firmware 2.7.3. I'm attaching my flight logs hopefully someone can give me advice. The wobble is l
One thing about Chinese motors. They are cheap and you can build a prototype quickly, but the Chinese can't make ball bearings to save themselves! After 13 flights I had a motor fail. I ordered two replacement motors from hobbyking since there's
I just mounted my SK450 frame on a XproHeli landing gear platform with camera mount. I'm going to make a wight that weighs as much as a gopro, mount it and test. I figured I should see if I crash first with some dead weight.
I did it! I've got a perfect rock solid loiter even in 13mph gust winds! My 2200 lipo apparently only gets me 3 minute stable flights. Sure the motors will spin and I can fly for the next 2 minutes, but yaw, pitch and roll would drift. The first
If you buy the stock Mode 2 Turnigy 9Ch failsafe will not work with your copter! I don't know about you but I know old man Murphy is alive and well and his law does apply here. If anything can go wrong it will. You need to be protected by loss of s
I was wondering if any of you have the Turnigy 9ch ? Are you running the stock throttle curve parameters or did you make any custom changes ? Also I've been following the directions on how to configure the stock version 2 firmware for 6 flig
I have a 450mm frame, with motors,reciever,apm 2.0, power distribution board, esc, props and prop mounts, and 2200ma LiPo it weighs 996g. I will be buying a 5000ma Lipo once I get the copter flying well, and then even more weight.. camera and
First off.. I want to say this is an awesome application! I plan on adding full telemetry and FPV to my drone. I have a few questions. I am running the latest arducopter firmware, mavlink 1.0 and mission planner 1.92. When I load a log file to graph I
As a newbie pilot I noticed one of my mistakes that lead me to overcompensation is accidently going full throttle blasting my quad 500ft in the air. My new recovery is to go into land mode, but once I crashed badly but proved to myself how durable m
I had a great flight today! The quad soared to over 500ft high. I select land flight mode and she came down with not problem. My radio is limited, I've only got a 2 position toggle on channel 5 I figured land was safer than RTL while I am getting
