Multicopters / An Open Source Telemetry Script for the Taranis.
« Last post by savage600 on April 18, 2018, 09:03:22 PM »
Hey Guys, I have had my H550 Hexacopter for a while now and haven't had the 3dr Pixhawk on there for that long, but have wanted some telemetry for w while now.

I had been doing a bit of looking around and stumbled across this Ardu Pilot Discourse blog and followed it up some more.

Following I will provide a couple of links to the information for any who may want it. I will also include a link for those interested in making up their own Telemetry cable.

https://discuss.ardupilot.org/t/some-soldering-required/27613

http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-frsky-telemetry.html#common-frsky-configmp

I have only just installed it and got it working on my Taranis X9d plus lastnight and it worked in the end. I was probably more worried about doing the whole thing than I needed to be lol.

I installed the Script by Yaapu and have the Craft and Theory Cable for a intrem thing, but i have gear on the way to make up my own.

I hope this may help some.

Cheers Dave.

Multi Builds / Re: My H550 Hexacopter.
« Last post by savage600 on April 18, 2018, 08:35:16 PM »
Hey Ralph, thanks for that make. I love to tinker with these things nearly more than flying them lol.

It probably is a little complicated and especially I am new to the 3DR Pixhawk flight Controller and also new to the Taranis X9d plus ( which I bought just for the Hexacopter), but I love a challenge mate.

The Phantom's are a lot more user friendly, but no doubt mate you'll do the right thing when using it etc.

I'll post some pics once I get another Camera for it, as the one it came with was supposed to be new, but I think the guy fired the VTX and the Camera turns on, but does nothing else.

I will get another Camera the same, the Walkera ilook plus HD, yes I said Walkera, they have come a long way over the years.

Cheers Dave.

General Chit Chat / Re: Introduce (or re-introduce) yourself
« Last post by WoodyB on April 17, 2018, 10:51:12 PM »
Okay guys been following this feed and thought I would do the same.

I have been flying for about 4 years now from when I join Rebels Flying Club. Had a couple of Helis (coaxial and fixed pitch) prior but went to Rebels when considering collective pitch. They introduced me to Archeli and between the help at the club and this forum haven’t looked back. My interest is sports flying and scale but importantly the social interaction with club members is great as well. For me as a retired person I need an interest and although I don’t fly as well as some it’s something I find interesting, exciting and even scary at times.

I think we have a great hobby with incredible support from others involved.

Well hello all

My story goes a bit like this, I started in the hobby somewhere around 2002 buying a Hirobo shuttle ZXX flybared with a OS 30 nitro engine from Wings and things in Gladesville Sydney ( funny story to come about this )It was the first Heli I built and thought I did a magnificent job in the build only to find out later on when joining a club I had no idea at all about mechanically setting up a RC Heli 
So was advised to purchase a sim which I did 
The sim started the Heli nose in so I thought this was the norm never being to a club and proceeded to learn to take off and hover nose in ( still do to this day much to many people’s amazement) and I am Irish born so maybe that has something to do with being back to front lol
So every after noon in my small backyard I would mount the training legs fire the shuttle up smoke the neighbour hood out and practise then back to the sim for the night ( I felt like a addict at this stage) I done this for months till I got to a point where I took the training legs off and could take off hover and land without them. So then I started to get the idea I needed a new move, a pirouette in the backyard, well didn’t go to well straight into the fence two fence panels needing replacing and a lot of money in spares!

So once rebuilt I joined a club to learn how to fly and this forum that’s when I found out that I had no idea about setting up a Heli, I was flighting it just to fly it but with some help from the gurus I had a Heli that nearly flew hands off. They couldn’t believe that when I went for my first hover that I put the Heli facing nose in to take off, was told you need to turn it around and my comments where I can’t take off that way lol.

So may be 5 years off flying and many helis raptors, miniature aircraft, hirobo the politics in the clubs was getting to much for me being restricted to fly between certain times mainly afternoons due to the plankers 
My addiction was dead and the passion had gone.

I got out of the hobby for may be 7 years where I raced gas powered RC boats built a few cars that I use to take to the track and drag.
One of the guys I meet when I first joined a club that I remained friends with called me about 16 months ago now and said you wouldn’t believe it there is a Heli only club just down the road from your house we should go have a look, and a spark inside me was f*@# yeah.
Here is where the funny part comes into it... the guy that sold me my first Heli at wings and things was the founder and President of the HYLAND Flying Club
So that was it after the first day down to have a look I had swallowed the biggest lure know to man and am hooked hard core and am on the web looking for a Heli that night.
I have the passion back stronger than ever spent shit loads in th last 16 months but love it.

O.k. I had to scroll down through 4 pages on Google before I  found a reference to that speedy. In sure if i spent longer looking and went o.s. i could find it cheaper.

Make it $200 plus post.

Cheers Dave.

Hi mate, don't want to burst your bubble but:  https://www.revolutionrc.com.au/castle-edge-hv-80-brushless-esc-hes08002-/-010-0105-00.html
No bubble burst here mate, as I mentioned,  I only found a number of sites that had it priced for that,  I didn't spend hours looking for the cheapest price out there.
