  • Reman: I just half woke up, opened my eyes to check the time. and while doing this I subconsciously noticed something wrong with the shape of shadows on the other side of the room. That woke me up with a jolt!!!  It seems I've got so used to seeing my camera hex perched up on the set of draws in the corner of my bedroom that the area now looks strangely empty without it (I took it apart on Sunday to begin the rebuild into its new Y6 frame)...... And now I'm wide awake at bloody half one in the morning....... And feeling like a paranoid pillock. :(

What flight controller for aeroplanes
« on: January 09, 2017, 13:28:28 »
I am fine with quads, hexacopters and octocopters regarding flight controllers, however I am now considering fitting a flight controller to an aircraft and the only two I know a little about are Pixhawk and AMP.  The aircraft is a MQ 9 REAPER UAV SPY PLANE KIT.
Can someone offer some recommendations and advice please.
Many thanks - Adrian.

If you';re already familiar with ArduCopter then I';d suggest loading up ArduPilot into either a cheap APM 2.5 or Pixhawk - the latter if you think you';ll need the extra horsepower.  The last I looked ArduPilot is still in active dev/support (unlike ArduCopter).  That may not be the case now, however.  But it still is a strong autopilot.

The Eagletree Vector and Fiyengtech FY41AP are good FC';s for planes as they have an OSD built in, meaning less wires.

I have the FY41AP lite in my Falcon Evo wing, after a bit of setting up and ground testing it works great.

Why use 4 motors when you can use 6?
