  • steveo9007: Cheers Atom was just a thought for now as I plan on keeping it well in range until I get comfortable with controls and flying
    December 05, 2018, 21:01:25
  • atomiclama: steveo You can just plug a GPS puck into the FC and get the OSB to display the coords, record the VTX and when things go tits up you have the last known posistion. Whislt not accurate it is a good starting point. Or get the coords sent back by telemetry to you TX which will be more accurate as long as power is maintained to the quad and it is range with the TX. Just some thoughts.

  • steveo9007: Is there a post on here about the 433mhz telem tx ??
    December 04, 2018, 07:56:49
  • steveo9007: ok thanks shaw
    December 03, 2018, 20:31:44
  • shawdreamer: meanwhile the 433mhz telem option I mentioned gives you live fixes in realtime and not "delayed texts"..... plus it doesnt cost you credit everytime you request a gps fix (btw the tags sim card also needs to have credit on it :laugh:)
    December 02, 2018, 20:47:10
  • shawdreamer: and yes that does actually work..... I tried it for a laugh a couple of years ago ::)
    December 02, 2018, 20:45:09
  • shawdreamer: the tags do as you say use satellites to get positional fixes but they dont immediately report those fixes to an App, each tag requires a Sim card (same as your phone) which is used to "text" you the tags position..... in other words you could get the exact same effect by strapping a old smartphone to your frame with the google "where is my device" app installed
    December 02, 2018, 20:44:13
  • steveo9007: doesnt the tag communicate with the satellites and not via a data system, isn't it the user who owns the tag go via data to the app that can locate the tag ???
    December 02, 2018, 18:18:11
  • shawdreamer: plus, alot of the lower end trackers struggle with GPRS and often rely heavily on GSM data instead which is just not worth a sh1te when it comes to pinpointing a downed frame
    December 02, 2018, 16:23:30
  • shawdreamer: most readily available gps trackers are not really suitable for anything smaller than a 400 sized frame as the units themselves are often too bulky for anything smaller and larger frames often already have their own gps setups that can simply be outfitted with a 433mhz telem tx that would report live and accurate info direct to a ground station so there'd be no point in a sms type tracker
    December 02, 2018, 16:22:07
  • steveo9007: anybody fitted a GPS tracker tag to their drones if it gets lost and is need to find it

MRUK 2018 Oscar Nominations
« on: December 03, 2018, 19:36:55 »
As we approach the end of the year I thought it might be a good time to reflect on our footage from 2018 and pull together an MRUK version of the Oscars.

I'll start off by suggesting a few categories, feel free to suggest some more, then for each category we can have a separate thread where people can submit their clips for review.

- Best Cinematic Edit - (Minimal flippy floppy - all about the location, cinematography, flying and editing skills)

- Best freestyle quad Edit - (Flippy floppy turned up to 11 - all about technical flying ability - neckstraps mandatory  ;D)

- Best Story told / VLOG / Fly-up edit - (Promoting the awesome social side to the hobby)

- Best single trick - (No submission longer than 20seconds. Youtube URLs with specific timestamps only)

- Best crash - (erm, best crash footage)

- Best RC journey told via an edit - (Compilation of your journey over the last 12 months in the RC world)
Let's hear your other suggestions for categories  :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

Brilliant idea!  ~~

.. Got some MRUK keyrings if that helps!

Best bacon sarnie contribution (I think Andy may have that one)
.. I'll get my Tux ironed.


Hmmm… "last 12 months flying" worth doing a 2018 round-up… if I can get my COMMERCIAL editing jobs out of the way… grr.

Okay then a serious and definitive nomination from me for most epic crash of 2018: Cornish Mule "Slated"



Although I suffered utter disintegration and a full-squad part-hunt at Deserted "We Broke all the Things" () I only had to make another frame part - Cornish suffered PROPER expense when he set quad against stone, smashed lots of expensive parts and yet came out with a brilliant video. Hats off!

At least he can pawn the solid gold MRUK Oscar to buy more bits!  ~~
