AR Drone Mods
This is my AR drone Mod. I converted it over to the PX4IOAR and used the PX4FMU Autopilot. This conversion was pretty simple to do and the cost was not that bad, well at least now about 3 months after purchasing everything they put it on sale for almost half price and combined the boards. It took about 4 weekends to get everything modified and running.
So now with the new mod my AR has these capabilities.
System State Indication
433 MHz / 868 MHz / 900 MHz Long Range / Outdoor
3DR USB Radio
3DR Onboard Radio
2.4 GHz Short Range / Indoor / Vicon
Roving Networks WiFly UART to WIFI bridge
Digi XBee Proprietary
WIFI Access Points
D-Link DIR-825, Wireless Router, DualBand 300Mbit/s, Gigabit
3DR u-Blox LEA-6H High-Performance Receiver
Just to name a few
Below I have added some pictures to show boards and mods.
Well I finally got my smartie parts board and TelemEZ board installed in my 9X and re flashed. Also added the FR-SKY mod and seems to be working well, just need to re-flash my RX and should be ready to go. Going to be nice being able to use the 9X for everything, good low costing TX that you can mod to be better in my opinion than the big names.
More to come.
