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 ~~

Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

could even be adapted to lower and rise the camera , antennas , etc

cheers

The freaky coincidences continue! Here';s a video I juts watched on building DIY retracts (demo at the end, rewind for build instructions):



As I watched that I was thinking "that wants to be triggered by range sense". Two minutes later pop by here to see what';s new, and here';s this. Mad!  :wack0

Nice if a board ready progd was available with a decent DIY  leaflet for non computer programming types! impressive.

Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.

yes agree , I do use the APM and also mess about ardunio but would be good to buy a small plug& play board .

QuadBod

I think there may be a difficulty with that if you use ultrasonic range sense for both this and flight control, as the two could interfere. A standalone board would be good, but the flight controller operating it on range sense might be better?

There';s no reason why u couldn';t just modify apm to do it.  Even contribute it to the public code base.  No point in adding another board if u don';t need to

I would be really scared to mess with the APM to that extent .
But would trust myself with a mini board (what a coward ) .
