Pixhawk + Taranis / X8R Fail Safe Configuration

Started this discussion. Last reply by david hitchcock Aug 21, 2014. 24 Replies

Hey, everyone.  I've got my X8R seemingly working well with the Pixhawk for basic controls and some flight modes on sbus.  I haven't flown it yet.  I'm curious about how to trigger RTL with a switch.…Continue

Any suggestions on radios for F450?

Hey everyone. I've got all the parts I need to wrap up my F450 build, except for my first radio.  I'm planning to fly this thing in all modes, including FPV.  I'm currently using an APM 2.6 until my…Continue

"On X8R it's the SBUS. The horizontal connector below all the vertical PWM ones. Do not connect it to the S-Port where the antennas exit the case, because that's for telemetry."

"@Todd Simply output the SBUS from Rx into the RC port on the Pixhawk. Don't use the SB port on the Pixhawk. @Cory, Are you using plane or copter? If plane, it doesn't have the ch7 RTL option."

"The failsafe ith X8R via sbus it doesn't work at the moment with Pixhawk, maintain the latest command even if you set your value, work fine only in the servo output."

Intel RealSense 1080p 3D/2D Camera for Depth Perception

Posted on January 9, 2014 at 9:03am 4 Comments



I thought this might be something interesting for potential UAV use since they are so small and light.

The first product bearing the compound name is the RealSense 3D camera. Intel describes the product as "the world's first integrated 3D depth and 2D camera module that helps devices 'see' depth much like the human eye," suggesting…

Hey, saw that you're in SoCal. We have a local SD Drone group that flies at least once a week, and then we have monthly meetings and discussions and what not. We also collaborate with the local FAB LAB, so there's access to a laser cutter, 3D printers and a nice big workshop. Here's a link if you're interested: http://meetup.com/drones

Hey, thanks for the information, Tyler.  I'll check it out for sure.  I'm in the Palm Springs area, so I could make it down there for some gatherings.
