About Me:

I'm currently a 3rd year law student, but I enjoy various computer, electronics, and video projects when I'm not studying.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I've been interested in quadcopters and other multi-rotor UAV's for several years, but I have only recently been able to purchase one. I'm currently learning all about them before attempting to put mine together.

I purchased a hexacopter kit from 3DR in May – right before the APM 2 was released. Nonetheless, I have had great success with the APM 1 and enjoy flying the hexacopter. I'm currently running 2.7.3, planning to update to 2.8.1 soon. The 3DR/DIY…

Lukas Holoubek commented on Alan Sanchez's blog post 3DR ArduCopter Kits Updated
"I have the same concern as Dom and Dany. The upgrades look awesome, but I don't like the idea of having to replace all of the arms on my hexa if I one of them is damaged. I invested a significant amount in my hexa frame kit earlier this year, and…"

I'm currently rebuilding my 3DR hexa after a nasty crash a few weeks back, and I have one ESC (3DR 20amp) that won't turn on. When plugged into the lipo, it won't beep and I can't get the motor to respond. Replacing it with another ESC fixes the…

Lukas Holoubek commented on Jason Tinacci's blog post Above Napa Valley
"Seth, Good insight. Is it difficult to obtain the requisite authorization to fly commercially? For example, I've seen companies like this: http://www.freeflycinema.com/ pop up quite frequently on various video production blogs I read. I assume that…"

Lukas Holoubek replied to Randall Richmond's discussion 3DR HEXA Param File
"My 3DR hexa has the 880kv motors and 12" props, but I also had drifting problems when I first flew it. Make sure to get it on a perfectly level surface and run the level command (hold yaw stick left for 15 seconds). Re-leveling fixed the drifting…"

Lukas Holoubek replied to Manu's discussion 3DR hexa building manual/tuto ?
"Good luck with the build. I recently built a 3DR hexa from the start with no prior experience building UASs. The instructions Chris linked to are extremely helpful. Note that the manual he linked include instructions for the APM2. The kit I ordered…"

"Wow. I checked the manual carefully again, and realized that I needed to plug the last two motors into outputs 7 and 8. Everything seems to be working correctly now."

I'm almost ready to take my 3DR hexacopter out for a test flight, but I'm having an issue with motors 5 and 6. Channels 1-4 coming out of the APM (version 1) seem to be working fine. In stabilize mode, I can arm the ESCs and motors 1-4 will work.…
