HiToday I had a crash with my x8 which worked fine for at least 20+ flights. After the automatic bungee launch the plane climbed (step but as desired), I then decidedto switch back to fbwa. Then the…Continue

Hi Having started with Arduplane after Arducopter I immediately wondered why there is no CH6 PID tuning option in the plane software? At least, it is not selectable in the PID config. tab of the MP…Continue

Headtracker over Mavlink possible?

Started this discussion. Last reply by sixtimesseven Dec 21, 2013. 1 Reply

Hi there!I`m trying to build a MAVlink based head tracker TX, because I think the unused RC outputs RC_Out 5-8 and A9 / A10 / A11 would be a cheap and easy option!What`s missing is a MAVlink command…Continue

Arduplane spins and crashes

HiToday I had a crash with my x8 which worked fine for at least 20+ flights. After the automatic bungee launch the plane climbed (step but as desired), I then decidedto switch back to fbwa. Then the plane started spining rapidly, and I couldn`t controll the servos at all. Stabilize, fbwa, rtl, auto ... nothing worked!!! If it would have affected only one Servo, the plane should have changed the spin which was not the case too.  At least the motor shut down after switching out of auto!The plane…See More

Aerodynamic FPV Bixler (v1.1) with APM 2.5

Posted on January 3, 2014 at 9:00pm 18 Comments

Hi there

Just a quick post of my Bixler v1.1 build and some mods I`ve done in the last weeks! The main goal was to fit in an APM 2.5 and a MinimOSD / Telemetry as well as the GPS, the FPV gear and all the standart RC gear "inside" the plane in an attempt to make this plane more aerodynamic. I didn`t see this setup so far, so I thought somebody might find it useful / has any suggestions.

The camera, the 5.8gHz TX and the MinimOSD are protected under the cockpit…
