  • 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

Had a card through the postbox yesterday asking me to go collect a small parcel.  It was an order from Gearbest China of some bits and bobs for the Xiaomi Yi HD camera (spare battery, dual battery charger, UV lens and lens cap, and a window sucker).  The window sucker is for in car recordings, otherwise the Yi is used with my Cheerson CX-20.

Oh, and a Star Wars (not ';necessarily'; official or licensed  :whistling: ) Millennium Falcon bottle opener keyring.  Because it';s geek-tastic!   :laugh:

Today I got a handful of spares for the Walkera Runner 250.  Useful parts for an inevitable crash.

Also, the other day when the Runner 250 arrived I forgot to about the Walkera backpack.  Sorry for library pics but I';ve not got the bag handy just now.

My Rcx 1407 3800kv motors just arrived! ordered on the 20th, very pleased!

Thought id throw a load (24) of spare bearings in there as well to keep me happy.

Also received 80 odd hq 3x3x3 props although these were supposed to be for the 1306 motors I was using, oh well.

And finally got some aomway antennas to try out.


Just waiting on my twitch 109mm frame from uniquefpv to throw these motors on  :evil :wack0 Would be veeery happy if it all arrived at once :waiting:

Looking forward to the build log  :popcorn:

To start off this will be running all the old kit from my 250 before I upgraded it all so it';s going to be an oversized, quite heavy 250 to start with but will slowly upgrade it.
Just need to get a cam and TX for it and I';ll have all I need to get it in the air :D

And i don';t think my own ';heavy lift'; X8 drone kit will be too far behind...

The prices people charge for this stuff is a complete rip off, i have the skills to design parts and the contacts to get them manufactured so kind of heading in that direction ;)

This insanely small and light camera/TX!!! Going to pop it on my Hubsan tonight :D
4.5grams all up! I still can';t believe it!





Also, 4 of these new Turnigy Lipo bags. I';ve got to say, I';m really impressed with the feel and quality. They are much thicker than normal lipo bags and feel much more solid. Plus, they have the fold over flaps at the top to help prevent that common double jet of fire exploding out the top!

It just needs positioning a bit further back I think, though it';s easy to adjust focus where it is.
