About Me:

Brand New. Don't know a thing. Average learner. Genuine interest and a heart full of sand.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

My roomie has a small hexacopter. I wanted to get one to put a gopro on and document a road trip I'm doing later this summer. When I started thinking more about it, I realized this might be rekindling my interest in film and the film industry, which I lost somewhere in film school. I've gotten more and more excited and just found out about racing drones and FPV. It looks incredibly fun and I see that as the step after this first build. I see a massive future here, and I'm pretty excited.

"I had a friend over last night who understands this much better than I do. He used the terminal tab in MP to try some things. It was very corrupted at first, only returning complete gibberish. He did manage to flash it and get some more sensible fee…"

"I'm getting this result with APM Planner 2. I've followed that path, and it's either not there or I can't find it. Did a search and nothing came up either. Every time I try it, it seems like it generates the same file with some random numbers after…"

"Thank you for the responses so far, guys, thought I haven't gotten any further with it. I've tried every micro usb of mine and my 2 roommates. I've tried more releases of mission planner. Sometimes all the drivers install. Sometimes they don't. I'm…"
