  • 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.
    December 04, 2018, 12:27:26
  • 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

Got it from Quadcopters uk,  on pre-order for months I had forgotten about it. I did ring them about a month ago and asked when they were expecting a delivery only to find they were in the same position. 
I did the power mod as the voltage on it was 4.4 volts,.
First impression, very clean and sensitive  r/x.. that's the good news,  it is really power hungry, and the "intuitive menu"  is crap. Who's intuition they used is not defined.  The Furious FPV  in m.h.o  is streets ahead and very easy to use. I suppose i will get used to it in time.
A quick test at 25 mw  it had no trouble through 3 brick walls one of which was at an oblique angle and in my workshop full of metal and machinery. Field test next week ,if it ever stops raining.. :shrug:
Interesting feedback John. Stick with it and I'll eagerly await your further testing. Very jealous! 🤣

Gave the Rapid+Fire  a good range test (with spotter). So far so good no break up at all.. :o Kept the T/X  power at 25mw, went down too 25ft at extreme  range while sitting between two cars and partialy obscured stone wall. Antennas used were a Gav cloverleaf with 10cm stalk, and an ImersionSpironet 8dbi  patch.
If only the controls wern't such a p.i.t.a. :laugh:

Good to hear. What fpv camera are you using? Apparently there's been issues with some of the foxeers.

From what I have found out the 3 month gap between the first batch and issue 3 was sorting the p.s.u. problem and the camera one ..I'm working on the " If it aint bust don't mess with it"  school of thought.😀

theres one currently hiding in my backgarden shrubs after my bengal found it last night and discovered the amusement that can be had playing "musical frog".

basically he cornered it, then proceeded to stomp it with his front paw till it made the unholy noise that only a distressed frog can before he'd leap back and then repeat the whole thing again, after the sixth or seventh round I got so peeved at heaing "ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!" every couple of minutes I went out and chased him off before shooing the unhurt but now angry looking frog into the shrubs were it could hide. :banghead:

Childbirth? Pah, It's one of the most natural things in the world. If they want to know about REAL pain, While getting out of the shower the other day I went and stubbed my big toe good and proper !!!!! Jesus, I almost wept !!!!

I can confidently say childbirth pales in comparison to one of those thankfully rare occasions when for no apparent reason whatsoever when a bloke does something as mundane and everyday as getting up off a couch or similar and it suddenly feels like one of his bollix has tied itself in a knot for the briefest couple of seconds that none the less feels like hours of scrutinizing agony.

its the following day long dull ache and absolute lack of explanation for what the feck just happened that gets ya. :banghead:
