"Still 33g arent negligible... even the 14 grams of lateral bumpers are noticeable, one minute less flight... plus lateral drag (wind influence) added, plus lowering CoG, with potential balance change.
Why did you feel the need for taller landing ?
The landing gear is too massive, adds to much to the weight, imo.Never felt the need for taller feet, just replaced the hard rubber bumpers with taller and much soft silicone bumpers (gimbal vibration dampers), search on…"
"Xbee based RC attempts were made years ago, the creator of OpenLRS was the last who convinced himself they are not a solution due to latency and buffering these devices does.
Telemetry yes, RC no, or anything where you need better than 0.1 second…"
"Double the amount, you forgot batteries. Such setup will not fly with a single 5000s/4/6s. Actual Ferdinand setup (97 minutes) contains batteries costing same as the rest of hardware (less electronics).
Anyway, is an futile exercise, simulation…"
"Yes, was my special design criteria for Frsky when XP firmware was issued.
The reasons to move CPPM and related signals to lower channels pins, instead ch8 as before, are obvious:
- people who need CPPM decodes at least the first four channels in…"
"When it comes to RC low pass filters, there is no such thing as optimum.
Use any resistor in 10-47k range and capacitor between 1-10uF, the product of their values must be bigger than 0.02, the bigger the better, unless your OSD has a RSSI input…"
