Thank you for you answer! We have the same module as you in the video, the Septentrio AsteRx-M UAS. I have verified the com port and baud rate multiple times, but I will verify today. Have you used RTCM or SBF as the transmission…"
I want to use the mission planner "Inject GPS" function to send RTCM correction data from a base station GPS to the GPS in my Airplane using the latest Mission Planner on the ground and a Pixhawk running Arduplane 3.4.0 up in the air.I have…
"Hi,I'm kind of active, too. The equipment listed above is used and usable but not for close proximity FPV. Higher up in the air, latency is not that much of an issue and the 300ms are flyable. It is far from ideal but I have not gotten further in…"
"Great to see that it helps! I envy you for your flying environment...
I would recommend to use the CGIAR version of SRTM (http://srtm.csi.cgiar.org/) which contains less errors. For better visualization you could also try to convert the DEM to a…"
"@SaadTiwana: Always glad to help! I have not found a definite way to produce the GeoTIFFs. For a free of cost version, try experimenting with http://mapknitter.org Originally this was created for aerial images but it actually works quite good for…"
"I just tested the WMS capabilites with the official release, works flawlessly. Here Mission Planner 1.2.68 with an 1:50000 map near Port Elizabeth, South Africa:
So all things I wrote in my blog post can now be tried by everyone.
"Thanks for the comments!
OziExplorer is great, then I don't have to do any more convincing on why to use your own maps.
@Александр: Russia is one of the countries I had in mind when doing this - for most of the former Soviet Union, russian military…"
So tell me, what is the goal of this post? The goal is that you, too, see a picture like this: And... why would anyone want this when we have global satellite coverage via Google Maps? In some parts of the world, Googles satellite imagery is not…
When using the automatic takeoff and landing system it would be very useful if a "change altitude while loitering" command were present. If the mission altitude is high, a very long glideslope has to be planned for Arduplane to lose enough altitude…
it was functional but as I said, I ripped it out - it was just too unstable for rough landings. I'm now starting the X8 using a bungee cable which works like a charm. I'd recommend not to use the retracts.
