Almost 10 years ago with the community help, we released an open source robotic blimp platform based on Arduino and we named it Blimpduino. It was a really cool project, despite the limitations back then..........And by back then I mean that we…
I'm trying to recall here. The X2.1 exposes the same pins as PixHawk1, if a remember correctly, some of those pins might need custom code due to a bug or a software issue that is affecting all hardware based on PixHawk1, this includes…"
Yes, the orientation for Ardupilot is moved 90 because of the bootloader configuration. We will post instructions on how to update it (But after Mission Planner is updated). Future shipped boards will include this new…"
The MRC0253 will be available soon, is very new and we haven't been able to add it to the store yet, but is available in the X2.1 kit.
The I2C can be accessed through the GPS connector (as standard). We have cables that split the I2C…"
As PixHawk1, PixRacer and other autopilots they don't provide power on the servo rails. Is not recommended due to variations in power requirements among all platforms. UBEC or power coming from the ESC is recommended to power your servos…"
IMPORTANT: The pin out above has changed slightly. On X2.1 Rev 2 we remove Telem2 JST-GH connector on the side and replaced it with the GPS port, so is more convenient. So the serial ports have been rearranged. We will…"
I think we are very careful when saying dampening is not required. We have built hundreds of drones and almost all of them got away without dampening and 3.5 seems to reduce the tolerances even further. I totally get that there is setups with…"
"Marc, Thanks for the feedback! Well, when I was the CEO of 3DR (from 2008 to 2012), we had the same policy of same day shipping. We will start adding more 3rd party accessories, so we can offer the same products but with fast shipping. ;-)"
Thanks for sharing. Is well known that dampening is needed in many cases. I also had the opportunity to open a DJI Naza, it also had dampers, but the sensors were covered with epoxy. Remember DJI background, they started with big RC…"
The price is going to be below the $300's, all depends on the features. The nice about the i.MX6 is the ability to upgrade to dual or quad core, we prepared the board for such upgrade. Also, the GPU is not used at all and can be potentially…"
"Rob, in extreme cases you can still add damping foams which we offer and we will soon offer more options for different vibration frequencies, giving it more flexibility. Now, I'm referring to Solo Cube, which doesn't have sensors capable to sample…"
