Cool GPS assisted flying.

Does Anyone have experience with the Arkbird Nano Light system? Mine appears to be working but during the set up process ,after I had changed the OSD language successfully to English, it reverted to...

Recording from Walkera.

You said you had it blinking. As I have never handled one of these I am going to suggest some possibilities. But really these are guesses.
The previous blinking might indicate low camera volts and...

Despite, or because of, the wind.

I have been forced to look more closely at Mission Planner. The You tube items show an earlier version with a PIDs chart as was used for the APM series.

There are manually entered P and I...

Better than I thought.

Later in the day (yesterday) the repaired Quad was back in the sky and at first I thought it was smoother. Wishful thinking on my part. The test was to see what duration I could achieve with two...

Devo 7 with FPV receiver and screen

I find the ads for this very confusing. I can only hope that you did not pay for the FPV version.

But to look on the brighter side; most FPV fliers don't like screens in general and they get...

I am steadily advancing with my latest in the open source control systems, The Pixhawk PX4. I have not been blessed in my earlier versions and I wasn't today. Grab a cup of coffee and I'll tell you...

I am not really sure....

I totally agree BUT !!!

What you call the QRX 350 sounds very much more like the QRX 350 Pro. If the unit you are describing has a USB port, it is, what I think of as, the Pro version.

To the best of my knowledge the...

A tip for windy days and FPV

Up until today I have had no problems landing the Walkera from the screen but today due to mid strength gusty wind, it became much harder to have zero groundspeed at touch down. And that's when the...

FPV and the Walkera.

Funny how things work out. My very early experiments with FPV were based on my Walkera QRX 350 but in response to some minor misadventures I swapped to simpler airframes where the potential cost of...

Good Tips for old, new tricksters.

As you say that is a really cool idea and much better than you suggest when you say "just because I can". It would be even better, if you could attach a picture of the screen where that mix is set...

Hey Panther you have caught me on the hop with that one.

Firstly I had not realised that I could "group" aileron and elevator Dual rates on one switch. That is how "basic" I am.

The QRX 350 fades away.

I suppose it was no surprise that when the QRX 350 Pro was released, the presence of the ever reliable standard 350, for quite a bit less money, had a depressing effect on the Pro sales. In a short...

The Blade gets sharper.

Looking good Tobydogs. I am sure the blade will lift the Gopro but it is likely to cost you in terms of duration. I would expect you to lose 10%.
There is a case against that class of camera acting...
