"I fly quads, but now it is more planes. Hobbyist.
Used Tower on 7" Android, but since my tablet did not have Serial drivers, I could not connect 3DR radio. So solution was to use 2x Air radio, the ground radio connected to either HC-05 Bluetooth, or…"
"Any ideas where else we can find the VDD-3.3V_ANALOG (as that is what we are looking for ?)
I can solder larger things, but the SMD is not tempting. The board v1.7 seems to have a VDDA test point, but I can't find a board 2.4.6 diagram as pdf"
"The whole idea of a multi-threaded FC would be to have the main loop do its job, and then you can add more and more processing on the other cores. You can add more sensors, image analysis etc that all use CPU, and then update the values in shared…"
"What we need is a multi-core, multi threaded CPU, like current heap of cheap ARM quad and octocore. Have the flight control kernel loop bound to one CPU instance, and then leave the rest for all the other processing.
"I can only agree with JohnEx, so much better than the Semi-abandoned R800.
For forgot to mention auto-baud. I used 115200 for telemetry on my APM, as that was the only speed I could use to reliable download tlogs using 3DR radio clones. Any slower,…"
"Well, you are personally accountable for all actions you do.
The question is, if you live in country with more lawyers than engineers, where everybody is trying to blame somebody else, or if you live in a sensible country.
"Not sure what you want the video for ?
Many people are seeing the drone as a camera platform, and many would be better off with a stick, possible a stick with a gimbal. For smooth video you do need a 3-axis gimbal. That is another $50-$100.
"There are many drones around $100, most of them are fixed wing (called airplanes). They have smooth stable flight.
Look at something like the Bix3 for FPV.
Then start adding transmitter (unless you have), for another $50-$250 depending on what you…"
I am setting up a plane I have been flying in manual mode.My question is, how do I do the transmitter calibration ? The docs says to trim the center points before calibration. But what about end-points ?Should I calibrate with the same settings used…
"Remember, we are from all over the world. So US legislation is not that important for most of the world.
PixHawk Lite was "invented" by GoodLuckBuy as far as I know, not sure if there are any clones yet. Mine from BG came with GLB labelled…"
