  • 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 ??

  • steveo9007: ok thanks shaw

  • 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:)

  • 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 ???

  • 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

  • steveo9007: anybody fitted a GPS tracker tag to their drones if it gets lost and is need to find it

Taranis mixes/custom switches
« on: November 29, 2018, 22:29:07 »
Does anyone know of a good guide?

What I'm trying to do (rightly or wrongly) is;

Legs down when I change the mode to failsafe  (rth) and also set the buzzer going.

Legs down if I set the buzzer going.

Modes are a 3 position switch on ch7

Buzzer is on ch9

Legs are a two position switch on ch15 and 16 (I haven't got around to making the 2 wires 1).

I think I'm just tired, this seems such a simple thing but I just can't seem to suss it!

Might not be a good idea. As you might want to use the buzzer if you crash land and need to use use buzzer to find it you might not want to lower legs then!!!
With a larger quad that might not be much of an issue but not knowing the orientation and just sounding the buzzer lowering the legs might be iffy?

As for guides, try Josh Bardwell, Painless 360 or Blue Falcon on Youtube. They might have something to help.

Have a look at the painless vid for elevator to flap simple mix
It gives a very clear method of adding mixes.
The handbook from T9 is also very good.

Thankyou very much! Didn't quite point me in the right direction but it helped in a roundabout way, my ears are still ringing from the trial and error bit though....

Typically, I only have one part of the build left to come and it's the one thing that's stopping me going any further  (mounts for c.f. tubes) VERY frustrating
