Question
When will ET have a total solution?

Any idea when EagleTree will have a plug-n-play easy to implement end to end solution for UAV/FPV?

It appears that other companies are making a go of making modular systems and I believe EagleTree has done this as well. It's just not a simple setup process

I did read where ET was talking about an end to end solution

Is there an update on that?

FunDozer, can you give me more information on what types of things you are looking for?

We do have a couple of big projects in the works, that we'll be talking about soon (I can't wait!).

Sure Bill....

I am looking for a complete package that includes an OSD, Auto Pilot, Flight Controler, GCS - and of course the ability to have all the sensors that your currently offering.
This total solution will enable either UAV or FPV flight. The user would also be able to use across platforms - Quad, Airplane, or Heli. And as a user that just is not as sharp as I was when I came out of school with a EE it really needs to be easy to do firmware

Oh - I almost forgot - this is a really big wish. If you could figure out how to implement the RC receiver as part of it..........WOW - can you imagine how many would buy because of simplicity in setting it up........


I see there are a couple items out there like what I have proposed - FY, uThere Ruby, APM2.5

Thank you for asking the question - I hope I didn't caring on too long

I' m all for this. I have steered away from the FPV only because I have no time or desire to become and expert on all the different flavors of components and their compatibility. Just need to buy a package, spend several days debugging then go have fun

I have APM 2.5 on multirotor and an airplane. I would like to see Eagle Tree come out with a nice neat package like the APM 2.6. One big advantage of the APM system is the really nice Mission Planner and two-way telemetry system. You can do everything using telemetry so you don’t need to plug in USB except to flash new firmware.


If you are into AP you also need all the APM camera control features.

Eagle Tree seams to be very slow at product development/improvements. They must have only one guy doing it?

I wonder if they need any beta testers?
