Stuff it, yesterday I was going to fly rain or no rain, guess what it was raining, still went out. Quad is all conformal coated so I thought lets give it ago. Quad was fine VRX strapped to the top of me goggles wasn't Didn't think to coat that.

Shout box not ideal for discussions!  BMFA affiliated clubs do not HAVE to force achievement tests no more than they HAVE to allow any specific type of model. There are plane only, there are Heli only, etc.

Martin from BYOD said he could send it today, and I cant imagine it would be anything other than next day (hope not)

Hope I get it tomorrow then!!


Pete.

Gaza07

Look forward to seeing your report on the Naza its some thing I would like but its a bit out of my price range at the moment  ~~

sausageroll

Just checked online, still says processing :(. That would be annoying as I ordered before the 2pm cutoff.

Will see what happens.

Pete.

sausageroll

Just ordered six new batteries for it too!

Getting serious now.

sausageroll

Hows this for fast delivery:




Brb, playing with new toy.


Gaza07

Chuffing hell how did you get it that quick  :confused: do you live close to BYOD

Longnail

Not quite next door, Martin rang me about 6 to say the box hadn't left, and I asked him where he was, and it was about 20mins drive away, so rather wait another day for it, I drove over and got it. Nice guy, looking forward to dealing with him again.

Just mounted the GPS thingy, and im fudging my way through the assist software on a windows VM on my imac. Will try and wire it up tonight.

Gaza07

Very good and keep us informed and dont forget pics  ~~

sausageroll

Its wired up, the Naza is powered, the incredibly bright LED is dazzling me, and im just installing the driver software now. Got the assist sortware going, hopefully will have it working soon enough... The light on the naza box is blinking so something is happening....(!!)

Just spent the last 20 mins trying to get the mode switch to work, just realised that the flap/gear switches are only active in acro mode on the tx. Got all levers calibrated, no errors showing (apart from can only find less than six satellites (I'm inside)) so all looks good.

Will finish off and fly tomorrow.


BYOD

It was great to meet you Mr S Roll  :smiley:

You did not waste a second on that now did you! :smiley:

How did you find the Mac and the assist software, did they play well together or did you use another option?

Regards

Martin.

sausageroll

Hi Martin,

The software runs fine on a windazz 7 VM on my imac. I was a bit nervous as USB devices (especially ones that have a USB-serial controller in them, like this probably does) often don't work, but it was all ok first time on this.

I gotta set up my function switches now, then im gonna take it outside adn check it can secure satelites properly and then I gotta wait for my quadcopter build partner to finish work so we can see if it works...

Pete.

Gaza07

Im glad its all going well  ~~ and don't forget your video camera  :whistling:

sausageroll

Ready with camera.






Got flap switch working the GPS / Attitude, just fiddling with some other settings to get the failsafe switch working.

Gaza07

Chuffing hell you been robbing out the back of the BBc  ::)

sausageroll


Gaza07

Looking forward to the bbc quality video  ;)

sausageroll

I cant enter compass calibrate mode, as it says flick switch between position 1 and position 3 6-10 times. I cant do this as the dx6 only has two position switches so ive had to invent another position using the flap mix functions in the radio and another switch. I wonder how im gonna get it into calibrate mode...

Gaza07

Dennis has been having problems setting his naza up he only has 6 channels to maybe they should say you need a radio with a 3 position switch, Dennis said he mixed 2 switches to give him 3 positions  ~~
He still cant get it to arm have you managed to arm yours ?

Dennis is Longnail

sausageroll

Yeah ive had it in the air breifly, you put both sticks to bottom left position and it springs into life. Its working fine, its having trouble getting 7+ satelites in my garden, but it did get the full signal when i flew it and it looks stable but i started to cut up a bush so I landed it.

The only thing I cant get it to do is enter compass calibration mode, everything else seems to be working....

Gaza07

You might be able to help Dennis out seeing as you have just set one up  ~~
hes in the chat now nip in and have a word

sausageroll

Argh I gotta go to Aylesbury now to have long meeting about gearboxes. Will try and catch him whn I'm back

Gaza07

Ok he just said he has found a problem with a dodgy esc  ~~


Gaza07

Very good looks very stable but did your bbc camera run out of batteries  :rolleyes:
