  • 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

Racing and FOOD in Singapore
« on: September 22, 2018, 01:35:38 »
I had the BEST time out in Singapore with the MRAS racing community.
Here's some more of what I got up to... and a little bit about the island.



One of the chaps I flew with won the Asia Drone Championship the week after I returned home - Well done Ryan!

10/10 video Andy. Love this style :) You killed it capturing Singapore and the race scene there :)

Really really cool! You should share this around more (especially on https://www.reddit.com/r/Multicopter/) :)

Yikes, Reddit really throttles the numer of times you can react to posts if you're new doesn't it!  :angry:

Cool video!

I know Ryan, he’s the guy I’ve met up with when I’ve flown out there. He’s a phenomenal pilot and a nice guy, he made it into the final 10 of the ledrib contest too - here’s his entry.

Just found time to watch your vid last night. I enjoyed it, was great to see a bit of Singapore. I lived there for a year but as I was only 1 I don't remember it or any quads flying round  ::)

I especially liked your flying round the racers course. It gave me hope that I can improve. I am not knocking your skills in any way at all. I watched your LOS footage of the racing pilots and thought yep that's how you do gates and the course and just thought my reactions are not fast enough and I don't get enough pitch to be able to turn that fast. So I was a little disheartened.
Then I saw your flights. They were much more like my flying. Well I say much more, you were much better than me but you gave me hope that I can improve to your level.

I have watched most of your other vids and your flying is great. So maybe I should just give up trying to get through gates and getting very fast sharp turns and concentrate on freestyle which is what I enjoy anyway. I was just trying to learn by using small gates as my regular field is just an empty football field with power lines over head.

Just to stress I am not knocking your flying at all. I am hoping to one day get close to your skills.  :notworthy: :notworthy:

Hey Ched. No worries - I know where my skills are at and I know full well how amazing these PRO RACERS are. For me it it was just an honour to be flying with guys that compete in international competitions and also alongide the guy who actually WON!  :wack0

I've got a LOT to learn before I can come close to these guys and to the other pilots I fly with here but I'm progressing at my own pace and with the help and encouragemet of those that I fly with. I'm making progress, and learning what my own style is as well. There was a time when I though it was the BOMB to hover a rickety quad about on the field... now I'm shooting gaps!

Certainly, never ever give up. It's just the kind of thing that you need to stick at (may be a pun there?). Happily, it's SO much fun to put in the hours to learn and although there are setbacks and frustrations it's all worth it. Kind of you to think that my efforts are any good though!  ::)

Oh... and don't worry about giving any constructive feedback. We're all friends here.  :beer2:
