"Nick,

STL files are 3D, since I've only been working from stock sheet material on a CNC cutter all my files are 2D. So you'll need to extrude from my 2D files and then export the new solid to STL if that is what you need.

Here is the daughter boar…"

"Nick,

I will send you a PM with the CAD files. Any predilection as for the file format and version (DWG, DXF etc.)?

"Hi Nick,
Which one specifically are you interested in? The PDB files or the nav. components mounting board? The PDB files are mostly EagleCAD and/or Gerber files (although I probably still have some DWG outlines somewhere) while the nav mounting boa…"

"Found the problem... Wrong spinning orientation on all motors. Even though the props were all pushing air down and the hexa was indeed flying the APM was expecting the motors to be spining in the other direction so everytime it tried to correct for…"

"I've also been thinking of adding integrated PM to the next version of my home made PDBs (http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/hexa-power-distribution-boards-fo...) could this be interesting for anyone else or is the PDB shape/size too dependant on the…"

"- PM with higher current capability
- 6S capable PM
- Adding multiple simultaneous power feed monitoring to the APM and MissionPlanner code would be a nice addition as well. My hexa currently has a 6S battery powering the ESCs through a 3DR PM with…"

"Hello again,
I was able to perform a few more tests today after moving the APM further away from the PDB. It now lies approximately 2 inches above the high current wires going between the PDB and ESCs. I have ordered some MuMetal foil which will eve…"

"Stephen,

I had originally inserted a double layer of 3oz copper between the ESCs, their cables and the PDB on one side and the APM, GPS and receiver on the other but I guess distance is what really matters. I'll try what you suggest before tweeking…"

Hi,After three unsuccessful attempts at finding a mechanical explanation to this problem I've decided to post here to see if anyone has encountered a similar problem and what they found to be the cause.- This hexa is rather large and powerful, 900mm…
