About Me:

I am a hobbyist that loves to integrate the real world with my virtual concepts via drones. If it can be dreamed, I want to try it, provided there is enough capital and time.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

Working for Boeing and Airbus as well as consulting for many others in the Aero and Auto feilds, I find UAV's fascinating. After destroying my ARDrone in an emergency shutoff during a fly-away (thanks Wifi) I am rebuilding with KK2, and a Turnigy 9x, keeping it real in the expense department. Update: Bring on the Ardupilot! Flight soon!

"Maybe I missed the thread, but is there a way to save sound files and associate them to specific functions like I can in the OpenTX for Taranis?  I would like to have sound files for the Quadplane modes but don't seem to have those.  I will test aga…"

Ray Anderson replied to Lockhart's discussion Differential Spoilers on X8 in X8
"We have implemented elevons on our X8 Quadplane and were wondering if we can have both Elevons and differential spoilers, since we have two servos and control surfaces per side.  What would it take to enable this functionality?"

"Mine is fine, it sounds like your magnetometer is faulty.  Try disabling the one onboard your APM and use only the one in the GPS module.  Once you have done that, make sure you also recalibrate with the props installed backwards and the motors unde…"
