"I didn't get a tracking number either but one day my APM2 just showed up in my mailbox, right on schedule in the batch of corresponding order numbers they were posting on twitter. I have no complaints. It seems to me that 3DR is being up-front…"
"I love this whole world of print your own designs. Wow I feel like a kid in a candy shop. I am building my first quad from stuff other people designed but now I am going to feel compelled (once I finish quad #1) to start working on my own design for…"
Since this is not really a drone related question I couldn't find a forum that it would fit into so I'm sticking this in misc - if there's a better place feel free to move it. My question is could an ardupilot + a laptop or tablet be used as the…
"Hi Brad - loving this - keep it up. On the ducted fan issue I can't speak for others but my interest in ducted fans for large scale multi-rotors is primarilly safety. I want to build a "moller skycar." :) Obviously it's not working for him though..."
"Also it sounds like for the magnetic compass, it could be advantageous to mount the ESCs near the motors instead of directly under the APM. It sounds like the range of errors that need to be corrected for would be reduced in that configuration. True?"
"I love this stuff. It is absolutely amazing what we get to play with! When I was in college (a long time ago) I did an internship with General Dynamics F-16 division and they were so proud of their inertial navigation avionics box. It was a big…"
"Noob question - since the MPU-6000 has a 3-axis gyro, it seems like that type of "inertial compass" would be a better real-time compass (since it is unaffected by magnetic fields) than a magnetic compass. It seems like when you first started up,…"
I've got a couple of 5200MAH 4S 20C batteries I want to use in parallel to power my quad. Should I be worried about peak currents for this rig? Motors are: - Kv: 700 RPM/V Outrunner- Max Efficiency: 75% - Input Voltage: 14.8V- Motor weight:73g-…
"The reason I ask is because it used to have a message that said “Availability:: Currently Unavailable” but today the message changed to say “Availability:: Usually Ships in 12 weeks”.
And when I try to order, it now says a 1-pin header is holding up…"
It says it's available but it won't add to shopping cart because it says the 1-pin header is no longer available. Is this just a bug in the order process or is it intentional to hold up orders over a 1-pin header?Thanks
