  • 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

So far  3 Ravens, 1 Hornet, 1 Falcon Evo,  1  WRA Racespec  built out of spec, also produced as the Raven Radical..
and the Genesis.. The Slipstreams sadly have died due to total abuse.. ::)  The P.D.B. is so when i fit the other f.p.v,  flight controller, G.P.S.  I can do it without f/king around.
There might be another  Raven Radical shortly as i have found  a loony motor for it. :smiley:

The Falcon Evo sits on top of the 3d printer , with the race wing on top, the Ravens are stacked vertically on the chest of draws with the quads in front to stop them sliding off, the Hornet has fallen off the chest of draws and is wedged between it and a wall but it's quite happy.. The Genesis hasn't found a permanent slot yet but has been living in a corner that is stacked with camera/lens bag and assorted other debris.
The planks wings are in a rack made from 1 inch nylon webbing hanging  on the wall.
I sleep on a small pile of straw in the corner. :smiley:

Maidened the Genesis,  :o :o.. 3/4 throttle and a side arm lob and off it went.. Err that was it, no trim adjust,  tried full throttle  went almost vertical. Throttle off glide with odd dab of down when going into wind it was gusty and greased it in dead stick. Running it on a 3000/3cell with a 2205/2550kv  motor with a 5/4.8/3. prop which looks a bit lost on the airframe but is well up to the job. I forgot to time subsequent  flights but  it  was only down to 65% when i finished. :smiley:

Thin end of the wedge I'm afraid.  Thankfully it's a flying wedge.😱...
As Flyingwings is closing I have stocked up on  them 3 Raven Radical, and a Genesis. The Ravens when laminated are almost bust proof so hopefully they will be around for a long time..😀
