  • 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

Great, any chance of a separate thread as I am sure this will be of interest to others who might not spot it here in the ';what arrived today'; thread?

They look nice. I don';t know if you are intending to make it air tight but I am not sure that is a good thing. OK so a fire needs oxygen to burn so in theory not letting oxygen in will stop the fire. The problem is we are potentially talking about a metal fire. I am not sure a. if a fire starts will the increase in pressure in an airtight container cause an explosion? b. will depriving the fire of oxygen cause it to extinguish?

Must say I have no idea about metal fires at all. Only have a little experience in petrochemical storage and useage and fire precautions.

Nope, don';t worry, not making it air tight, just disuading the pressure';s primary outlet from being these holes. I';m fitting it with two fair sized pressure vents which feed into air filters (with the aim of minimising toxic smoke entering the room)  :smiley:

A Micro MimimOSD and a lens protector for my sj4000.

My god is the Micro MinimOSD small! It is smaller than a 5p. Can';t wait to have a play with this and see if I can get it working on a cc3d with CleanFlight.

My first ever order from Banggood arrived today. Must have been at least 3 weeks since I placed the order.
Anyway, I now have a Mobius camera, a pair of Spironet antennas and a straight SMA to RP-SMA adapter that';s going straight in the "box of bits I will probably never use", as the antennas fit onto my vtx and vrx just fine.
I should probably try and finish building the 250 quad they are destined to be put on, but I';m off to London for some SAD treatment (i.e., sunshine, which we have not had a lot of this summer in Scotland).
Hubsan X4, DJI Flamewheel F450 with Naza M V2/GPS, but too scared to attach my GoPro Hero 4 to it:-)
