"Looks interesting, but like the usb port on the Garmin is in a different location from the GoPro so the fixed FPV plug on the Tarot would need to be freed up or relocated? I am going to try the cheap option SJ4000 first. I am done with GoPro. I…"
"Did some more research and it looks like the SJ4000 cam should work. But looks like I will need to replace the GoPro mini USB cable on the Iris with one that has a micro USB plug... also picked up one of those. Not too bad if this works. Worth $40…"
Took Iris out for some flights yesterday and still flies great. But the USB port on my GoPro 4 Silver seems to have failed for charging and data transfer... but strangely still worked for Iris+ FPV. So the battery is dying and who knows how long…
"OK, a typo above. The throttle channel seems to work but the right stick (needed to arm disarm and maneuver) does not. I just tested her again tied down, armed with tower, ran the throttle up, but no reaction to slewing the right stick or to…"
So I charge upall my batteries and head out to do a video for my friends' business today and epic fail. Iris+ herself seems to be fine but I can't seem to do anything with the transmitter except tilt the Tarot/Gopro. That works fine but no other…
"Just a heads up... B&H has a special on remaining Iris+ for $399. Might not be a bad idea to pick one up for spares if you intend to stay with Iris for awhile. Parts seem to be getting harder to find."
"Sorry I am not sure exactly where it is on Solo. I am an Iris+ pilot. On Iris+ this is in Mission Planner either under Initial Setup or Config/Tuning. Been awhile since I have flown... I did this exact thing you are trying to do last year when I…"
"What I was thinking is that if the GPS database includes elevation (maybe a bad assumption?) that when you load waypoints into Pixhawk you could specify AGL relative to each waypoint instead of relative to takeoff elevation. Seems that would be far…"
"Any update on getting terrain following in the next update? Is this still on track? Just curious after having to abort a mission yesterday in a remote location. Flight started in a bit of a bowl and the intent was to fly the perimeter of a farm…"
"Exactly... but 3DR really doesn't have their parts sales set up logically. They should sell many items by the piece as well as a set, but they don't. Similar to other parts offerings, you sometimes need to buy things in groupings to get what you…"
