"I struggled with almost the same problem not a while ago. In my setup, X8R transceiver is connected to Pixhawk via SBUS. I expected all 16 channels to be available on the Pixhawk side, and wanted to hook my servo-style peripherals to the Pixhawk…"
"End of year 2015 and ch7-8 are not implemented :(
To use this geo-fence feature I need to carry a laptop with me to define the box.. so much hassle comparing to a single switch that returns the plane back to you. "
"I replaced the stock motors with Turnigy Multistar 3525 650Kv and ESC with 30A Hobbywing Platinum to get some extra reserve for future upgrades and experiments.
I don't think I really had to change ESCs for this setup, but my hex crashed in the…"
"I replaced all the motors a while ago (see the bottom of the page 1 of this thread) and it worked great for me. No overheating issues since then, much greater lifting capability and in result - longer flight time (18 minutes with 5A/h 4S). I'm using…"
total weight is 2.7kg, flight time is 10 minutes (5a/h 4S battery, monitor is set to 3.4V per cell). It loiters at 55-60% of thrust, so I'm thinking to add a second 5a/h battery.
To fit 12" props I had to replace the landing gear. It can fit…"
"My old config with 3S and 1000kV motors and 11x45 props was capable of lifting a NEX camera with a simple 200g gimbal. It was a bit under powered (loitered at 75%), but it was okay. Check this out:360cities it was done with 3DR Y6 and NEX5N.
"The motor coils - the part of the motor that get hot - are on the bottom part of the motor. The moving part (rotor) has magnets only and does not produce any heat. Instead, it is in greater degree exposed to the airflow.
"" I am somewhat confused by this because typically if you can increase your voltage like with a 4s pack your current should be lower therefore cooler but it must have something to do with how the esc works."
It's simple...do like this:
1. Download and extract the MavLink_FrSkySPort_1.2.zip file (for example. to your desktop)
2. Open Arduino software and in menu File/Preference change the sketchbook location to…"
"It is in your radio manual setup section. Just set up you telemetry pages by adding new parameters to display.
I posted exactly the same question here but figured it out in 5 minutes later and removed my question."
