Use Google Elevation for 'Verify Height'

Started this discussion. Last reply by Kevin Guest Dec 20, 2015. 15 Replies

I was planning a mission in an area which either has no SRTM elevation data or bad (i.e. all elevations are 0m) data. When attempting to use the 'verify height' option while creating waypoints,…Continue

Broken PDB? - Voltage on Signal Pins

Started this discussion. Last reply by Eric Tweet Oct 29, 2012. 4 Replies

After several flights with my new hexa, I've run into a problem. Motor number 3 does not spin when the others do. Long story short, I narrowed it down to something with the PDB. If I plug motor 3…Continue

5.8 GHz and 433 MHz Interference

In my attempts to throw together a somewhat long range system for my plane, I've run into a few issues. First, the equipment in question is a 500mW 5.8 GHz video tx, and a 433 Mhz RC rx. I'm aware…Continue

Criminalizing Drones in Oregon

Posted on January 31, 2013 at 8:52pm 34 Comments

Sad news from the northwest. It sounds like it may become a Class B Misdemeanor to simply own a drone capable of video or photo, and a Class A to fly it.

Check out the…


Hexa Fun

I've managed to get everything up and running again! This is my newish hexa from uDrones (I've decided to forgo a rant on that subject for now). After working around my PDB issue (still unsolved) and engaging in some…


APM1 > APM2?

Posted on June 13, 2012 at 10:00pm 7 Comments

To avoid confusion, I ought to preface this post by mentioning that I began tests quite some time ago with the APM2 purple board. Since then I've gotten my hands on it's older brother the APM1 (hey, they're cheap now and then!). I have the APM2 in my heli now, so I decided to throw the APM1 on my quad in place of the APM2 to see how things compare...

T-Rex 600E with APM2 - Test Flight

Posted on June 4, 2012 at 9:37pm 21 Comments

As requested, here is a clip of one of my test flights with the APM2 on my 600. This may be the most boring video ever, but in this case, boring is exciting! The APM2 works amazingly well mounted on Align gel, where a tail gyro normally sits. Stabilization is very good using  …
