  • 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

  • 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

Welcome to the 3D Printer section of the Forum

The idea is to have a central area for Questions ideas and requests for information,advise or even for printed parts.

Over the next few weeks Myself Hozza and Rommie will be writing some guides highlighting the different styles of printers and the differences in styles of Controllers as well.

We hope to do a tips and tricks guide as well as well as a list of known good suppliers with links.

If anyone has any requests for individual guides please post a note in the manuals section of the section and we will see what we can do.

Obviously we haven';t got extensive experience of all the different systems but can usually find information or can point you in the right direction of were to find it..

The first Guide will discuss the different styles of printer (Cartesian and Delta bots) and their pro';s and con';s.

Dougal just tried to message you but your inbox is full about flying field message is as  follows

That';s great let me know when you intend going and I will pop up, but let';s wait a month or so when its a bit warmer. Would be good for a quick fly when the nights are a bit lighter.

Hi there,


I';m new to the world of RC and quads, and since I am now hooked I am also thinking about venturing in the world of 3D printers...


It';s great that you guys created a forum section dedicated to 3D printing, and the part I quoted above is every newbie';s dream (methinks)!


If you did in fact crate any actual guide, comparison or collection of tips & tricks, is there a chance that they can get pinned at the top?


Personally, I think it would make it much easier for inexperienced people like me to find relevant information, and by extension to avoid asking repeated questions  ;)


Many thanks again for sharing your experiences and advice, I am sure they';ll save me a lot of money and facepalm moments!  :laugh:


Cheers,


-snafu
