Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Newbie question, why would we want blue tooth on anything.
KK2, NAZA M/V2 ugrade, Spektrum DX 8, Hubsan X4
Immersion 25Mw vtx, GoPro 4, Black Pearl Display
Walkera 2 axis gimbal

Gaza07

You can use blue tooth to connect to the AIOP and tune the PIDS wireless  ~~

rsmith21

 :cool: You wouldn';t tune during flight though, would you, its just for convenience right. looks like its going to be a fantastic machine when its complete. The IFLY seems so basic looking at that lot  :smiley:

never built one before its thanks to the folk on here and rappyfreak the flying partner he has a lot to answer for lol

ktnch

Still waiting for the frame  :frantic:, think i may be knocking one up soon blue peter style !

ktnch

Question, the 5.8tx and cam runs of 12v guessing i need a step up dc-dc converter to get the lipo 11.1v-12v and is it better to have the feed separate to the esc';s and controller board?

Rappy Freak

I run all my gear off the main battery Kev.  Not had any problems  ~~
SkyNet shall rise!!!!!!

ktnch

Cheers Ad, Also thinking the retail higher end would have ripple noise filters built in matey and the diy stuff may need one adding, seen some threads with some using them and some don';t all very confusing 

Rappy Freak

Thats why I just tried it with out the filter, can always add one if needed  ;)
SkyNet shall rise!!!!!!

ktnch

good man, so some more stuff ordered can see the light at the end of the tunnel well almost lol

Voltage & Current Sensor 50V/90A

FTDI Basic Breakout Arduino USB-TTL 6 PIN 3.3 5V

5V or 6V / 3A UBEC Battery Eliminator Circuit

ktnch

OrangeRx Futaba FASST Compatible 8Ch 2.4Ghz Receiver

FPV 433Mhz Radio Telemetry Kit 100mW

ktnch

Also just ordered an L-C filter thought sod it lol

So now just the £180 fatsharks.

When the quad is powered up do you have to power the controller up first then the fpv side or can it be done both at the same time ?


ktnch

Frame finally came, was a rip off at £15 lol think i will order a spare as well just for the arms, ordered some 12 and 14awg wire, next step is getting hold of some m3 nylon nuts bolts spacers securing the powerboard and soldering the escs up, then flashing the minimosd when i get the ftdi kit

Rappy Freak

On the TBS I have it all power up at once.  Really I should put on off switch in it for the FPV system  :whistling:
SkyNet shall rise!!!!!!

ktnch

Ah in that case i will get that switch with the lcd readout i sent you a link about for the fpv side


ktnch

Was told on fb to get a decent quad copter by some one who makes them, so guessing if i did would not be one of yours now  :rofl:

ktnch

Little update, finally worked out ch 5 receiver goes to crius 12 not the ppm pin grrrr,

just waiting for the telemetry and vid tx now blades on order then going for a fly, oh and not forgetting the switch for fpv side


ktnch

can some one take a look at this, it flies ok but values are way down what they should be, any higher and it wobbles like mad



Marty McFly

Hi Kev,how are you likeing your Boscom camera,and thats a nice set up youve got,Marty. :scotland:
