"Yes, we regularly fly a heavily modified TBS Discover Pro to inspect some support brackets high up inside a large power station boiler.
The sonar proves to be very accurate and reliable. Mostly the Quad is flown manually with the distances all…"
"I did some work on a prototype Quad with Sonar just over a year ago for collision avoidance in an inside environment. Interesting to see your comments on noise from the motors.
If you're using the an Analogue Voltage signal from the Sonar Sensor…"
"If you have a spare receiver channel dedicated to the Retracts, then you can just read the PWM signal into the Uno, decode it and act on a value. If you're using PPM like I am between the Receiver and Flight Controller, and want to get at one of the…"
First 3D fix it sees on startup with more than 8 sats it records as Tracker Base, I have a menu option to reset it if it doesn't look right, Height was sometimes a bit off. Just needed to make sure the…"
I'm about to attempt to develop a multicopter for the Internal inspection of a Power Station Boiler, essentially a large dark area. I'm curious as to whether additional sonar would be a way to stop the…"
"Great work on the 2.72 release guys. I've been using the APM 2.5 in a Hexcopter for a while now, but the other weekend I put a Bixler 2 together with APM2.5, Telemetry & Airspeed Sensor. Its been effortless and loads of fun. No video downlink at the…"
I'm not far off building a Multicopter to be used as an indoor inspection tool. Where we'll be going is a huge indoor space, metal wall, very little lighting (Probably a few halogens). Most of the lighting will be provided by high intensity lighting…

I went out for a test hover today and it was just to collect so data. All I wanted was 5 minutes of RAW logs to look at. Came home, loaded up the mission planner, and connected. And it erased the logs all by itself :( I never got see them yet, Was I…
Something very similar. Just upgraded to 2.9.1 and I find that the vertical speed indication is fluctuating +/- 0.3m/s and the indicated height +/- 1,5m. This is with the quad on the bench connected in…"
