"Very cool product. However when I'm flying manually, I don't often use a top-down map. I'm more interested in data like altitude, current, voltage, velocity, signal strength, etc. With the map dominating the screen space, especially on an iPhone,…"
"I'm not the most experienced with Lipos, but to monitor the levels of the battery (when not hooked up) you can buy a little battery checker that plugs into the balance lead on the battery, that will tell you what the individual cell voltages are at.…"
"That definitely sucks, but its not the end of the world. The kit is simply a set of four small pieces of foam adhesive (label says: 3M 467 MP, 200 MP adhesive), an alcohol swab (to clean the place you stick the adhesive), a small zip tie, and a…"
"In some IRISs the Pixhawk and the other components were coming in contact with one another causing vibrations in the Pixhawk. I guess these extra vibrations were causing the the autopilot to go a little crazy. A couple people had bad crashes…"
Hey everyone,I just bought the gimbal kit from 3DR (is still on route) and am interested in setting up my Fatshark Attitude v2 goggles to control the tilt and pan of the gimbal. From my research it sounds like this is possible and that I can use the…
"Has anyone found/designed any better/lighter legs other than the ones already linked in this tread? I was hoping in the intervening month there had been some progress made but I haven't found anything. Would it be crazy to saw off a small number of…"
"Here is a silly question - I use a laptop as a ground station, so I can't use the mini-usb to mini-usb cable included by 3DR. Can I use any simple mini-usb to usb cable (the cheap ones are for charging and only have some of the pin connected) or do…"
"I had this happen to, but was able to find some 10mm replacement crews at a local hardware store and get the engine back in. Since I guess I only have about 2mm of gripping threads now, should I get a replacement motor? I've been able to fly it…"
"Couldn't tell you the exact size off the top of my head, but I had an engine come out after a crash and was able to take an existing screw to a local hardware store (Lowes) and was able to find a replacement among the metric screws. I think the…"
"Glad to see its not a problem unique to my IRIS. I'm fully geared up for FPV with the FatShark Attitude V2. So I've got the Fatshark vtx, a cloverleaf antenna, and a 2 cell 850 mah batt all strapped to the IRIS (pic here). I think I'll eventually…"
"Here is my first video. Also the first time I've ever flown anything larger than an MQX-50, so please don't judge my piloting skills too harshly! I'm flying using my eyeballs in a moderate/heavy breeze. If anyone could tell me why the IRIS flipped…"
"Could you throw up a link to that battery? I think I'd like to use it regardless of whether I get the gimbal. Also could one shave down the long legs a little (reduce the number of crosspieces, etc) to reduce weight? I think even 3DR admitted that…"
"Oh, I interpreted Beau's post about 15 minutes as just the GoPro mounted on the front, not with a gimbal. If its 16 minutes with the gopro AND the gimbal, I'm definitely investing in the gimbal and the larger battery. Previous posts do seem to…"
"I know this has drifted off topic, but does anyone know what kind of flight times one can expect with the Tarot gimbal + gopro onboard? If I can get 10 minutes with a larger battery and the gimbal I definitely want to buy one."
