About Me:

I am an undergraduate of electronics engineering. Trying to educate myself primarily in science, physics and math, but more as well.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I'm making my first drone as part of an important class that i have in university.

I have the APM 2.6 board. I want to power an external device (an MCU) using the telemetry port pins (which is basically a UART interface). The Vcc pin of this is rated at 5V, as i see with my multimeter. The MCU i want to connect is rated at 3.3V so…

Nikos replied to Hugh's discussion APM 2.8 and GPS / Compass
"@Tim Dickinson The OP has the APM 2.8, which is a clone and it's different from APM 2.5,2.6 pin layout.
@Hugh I don't see anything wrong with your configuration. I have APM 2.8 as well and i've done the same thing. You plug the five-lead connector…"

Nikos replied to Shane O'Neill's discussion Electrolytic Capacitor has fallen of my ESC board
"Hello O'Neill.
You may notice some instability in the output of your quad. I don't think it's a major issue, but i think you can compensate for that by inserting such or an even larger electrolytic capacitor across the power distribution board…"

Nikos replied to Ryan Nelson's discussion TCP/IP connection in Mission Planner
"Hello. I'm on a similar research. I'm trying to use my MCU with 802.11 capabilities etc as the telemetry module that will link my APM 2 to mission planner through TCP (preferably). The unit has serial UART modes and other features as well. I'm a bit…"

Nikos replied to Paul Atkin's discussion How to create an _immediate_ kill switch on PX4/APM?
"Yes i want this functionality(Motor Emergency Stop) on APM 2.x as well. In my opinion is a very useful feature for safety and should have been implemented on APM as a final mechanism as well."

Nikos replied to Jeffrey Foster's discussion Motor Emergency Stop not working
"I too had this issue. Randy has replied here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Db4u8LJE5w that motor emergency stop won't be supported for the APM 2.x boards. APM 3.2 was the last version for APM 2.x."

"Same thing happens to me on MP 1.3.35, windows 8.1. When i click auto analysis for a log i get two messages

The type initializer for 'NumpyDotNet.NpyCoreApi' threw an exception

Bad input file

I can't analyse any logs!"
