Lifting capacity?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Michael Pursifull Oct 12, 2011. 6 Replies

I tried to search, but are there any lifting capacity graphs (flight time and battery calculated in) for the 3DR frame with the 880Kv motors? If not, what is the lifting capacity with the 880Kv…Continue

I have a small problem with the ArduPilot when I put it in both FLY_BY_WIRE_A and FLY_BY_WIRE_B,  the rudder goes almost full to the left, not all the way but say 80%. The rudder still works both…Continue

The last journey of my EasyStar

Posted on March 4, 2012 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

I recently bought a GoPro (HD Hero2) for my EasyStar, but managed to crash it before I could mount the camera.

But I just had to see the HD footage from the sky's, so I glued the EasyStar together again.

I throw it in the air and immediately felt it was tail…


My first "major" crash!

Posted on August 17, 2011 at 10:15am 10 Comments

I have never had a major crash (except some stupid nosedives) until today.

After the first waypoint ArduPilot suddenly decided my EasyStar was to high, and before I could recover control it disappeared behind some tress.

It was quit a loud bang when it hit, whatever it hit.

Lucky it wasn't dead, so I could track the plane from the sound of the engine.…


Replay XD1080

Maybe this camera I found on the web would interest fellow aerial photographers.


It apparently doesn't weigh more than 85g, can take up to 1080p and it looks like a easy camera to fit on a plane compared to a bit more bulky GoPro.

Fant deg her på diydrones og lurer på om du har arducopter? Jeg prøver å kartlegge antall piloter i Norge for
å skrive en artikkel om dette.

Også skal vi i løpet av året organisere en arducopter / uav dag og du er kanskje interessert?

Vennlig hilsen

Hei, eg har dessverre ikkje ArduCopter, men eg har planar om å skaffe meg ArduPilot forhåpentlegvis snart.

Men det høyrtest interessant ut med ein ArduCopter/UAV dag, så gje gjerne ein lyd om du veit noko meir om det.
Eg kan forresten vere behjelpelig med ei eventuell nettside for informasjon og kunngjeringar for dette formålet via firmaet mitt på (Det utfører eg gratis isåfall.)

Ang. artikkelen din er det eit selskap i Hardanger som kan vera av interesse for deg, nemlig Panorama Hardanger. Eg er usikker på om dei brukar ArduCopter, men dei har bla. anna filma Ekstremsportveko på Voss for NRK med forskjellige UAV'ar.
Er dette ein artikkel som hamnar i norske avisar forresten?

Lykke til med artikkelen, mvh Peter-Hans de Zwarte.
