Hi all,I've been working on a low-altitude fence for ArduCopter, and wanted to get peoples' input on how they'd like for something like that to work if they were going to use it.The idea is that if…Continue
"Ive read the articles about the Feiyu gimbal and how to wire it up, where people are soldering the connections directly to the Solo IO board. I was wondering why a pigtail/adapter couldnt be made that allows the Feiyu to just plug in to the Solo…"
"Seems like automating one of those Yamaha copters for tasks like this makes a lot more sense than waiting around for multirotors to get some kind of magical battery and a 4000% increase in lift capacity for things like spraying. I wonder what it…"
This is already in place. The way I implemented the low-alt fence, it's just another fence type. Normally, if you turn on the fence and set a max altitude and a max distance, you effectively have an invisible "cylinder"…"
Yes, I've had it running for a while now, probably 4 months. It's being run on some drones from someone I know in New Zealand. He runs his drones over the ocean, and uses this to ensure he (and his customers) don't…"
"Thinking this through, the opposition would also be good. I also suffer from altitude drift to high. Would be cool to set an upper limit fence of say 150 feet so that I can just have fun turning and zipping around. I find the most stressful thing is…"
"Now this is exactly what I need. When flying fpv I often see some drift down to the point where I lose track and get too close to ground. I find myself constantly checking altitude on the osd. I just ordered a sonar module with the idea that I could…"
"I just looked on http://3dr.com/support where I found the link before, and it's changed now. Now, I simply have the option of emailing them. Which, based on my experience with email support with 3DR, doesn't seem like a good thing.…"
"I needed phone support the other day. I couldn't find a number, but I found a link to a form I could fill out and have them call me. They called me back about 30 minutes later. So I guess that's sort of phone support. Works for me."
"I don't think for a second the DIY "experiment" is coming to an end.
DJI has obviously sewn up the consumer market. They have the brand name people recognize, and the look of the Phantom has become synonymous with "drone"…"
"I've played around with this on my Dad's farm. Crows are smart, and aren't intimidated by a drone at all. If you fly one past a tree where a bunch of them are sitting, they'll leave, but do it again, and they aren't…"
"Since the wireless connection between the Solo and controller is wi-fi, you're able to put other devices on the same network and control them something else on the network. In my case, I modified ShotManager to send commands to the camera (with…"
