If you are not aware of GliderScore it is the most used RC soaring computer program in the world. It supports a wide range of contests types including TD, ALES, F3J, F3B, F5B, F5J, F3K, and F3F. It's a really impressive package that not only handles the scoring parts but also provides contest timing announcement automation.

A recent upgrade to GliderScore introduced the concept of a digital timer that is used to count down the prep and working times for many of the supported contest formats. One of the digital timer features is control of an external timing display via a laptop serial port.

Several companies recently announced GliderScore-compatible timer displays including this one from Embedded-Ability. The neat thing about this relatively low-cost board is that it allows clubs and contest organizations to buy the board along with LED display boards from 3rd party sources and make their own custom timer display. The result is a much cheaper solution compared to purchasing a turnkey sports timer display.

We have been using this in our NorCal F5J contests and the pilots really like it.

The Ruckus seems to be a tough little monster truck, but a tad slow.

I personally reckon that LuxFloat is absolutely the best CleanFlight PIDC I've flown to date - both in Acro and Horizon mode, it rocks!

However as you know from my earlier entry, Horizon mode code is a bit limited at very high quad angles, and I figured out a way to make it much more flyable 'on the limit'.

I have a binary for Naze pre-built with the code here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...light_NAZE.hex

To make the changes yourself, navigate to your cleanflight code folder:

cleanflight/src/main/flight/pid.c

Scroll down to the current code which is:

Quote:
// Progressively turn off the horizon self level strength as the stick is banged over
// horizonLevelStrength = (float)(500 - mostDeflectedPos) / 500; // 1 at centre stick, 0 = max stick deflection
replace with:

Quote:
// MODIFIED HORIZON CODE CTZSNOOZE
horizonLevelStrength = (float)(500 - mostDeflectedPos); // 500 at centre stick, 0 = max stick deflection
horizonLevelStrength = horizonLevelStrength - (float)(MIN(MAX(ABS(inclination.raw[PITCH]),ABS(inclination.raw[ROLL])),1800))/3.5f;
horizonLevelStrength = constrainf ( horizonLevelStrength, 0, 500); // limit to range 0 to 500
horizonLevelStrength = horizonLevelStrength / 500; // 1 for full levelling and 0 for none

// reduces levelling by sticks as usual but also according to inclination of quad
// angle calculation returns about 900 when vertical 1800 when

I had some spare small metal struts laying around so i made this not-so-beautyfull-but-functionable phone/telemetry holder for my Flysky.

It was pretty easy and the only thing that is left, is painting it (White or black not sure yet).

It is sturdy and stable. I could easily screw it down and hold it with a nut on the transmitter,
exactly on the Flysky logo, but i didnt want to harm the aesthetics of my new trasmitter

The materials that i used was:

-2x flat metal struts 18cm long
-2x Metal corners (they are used in cabinet making)
-5x M4x18mm flat head screws
-1x M4x8mm screw for the counterholding
- Car phone holder that i had around (it was set with a suction cup mount)
-Zip ties, nuts/locking nuts.

Of course each of us has different materials lying around it could easily be more good looking than mine.
I just wanted something functionable and fast (less than 5 mins of building) and i am pretty ok with it!

PS My quadcopter had some issues, after every accelerometer calibration when i had it on the ground,
the No 4 CW motor (only) spins faster and faster at the smallest amount of Throttle application.
Also in the Mission Planner at that time the Roll was horizontal and after some seconds got warped (see 1st attachment).
After some research i used the Autotrim function and seems a bit better (less drift).


Happy building!

My QAV 250 took a dip in the river this past sunday... after a day of drying 2 motors didn't work, then after another day 4 motors worked temporarily and only a few moments later 3 worked and 1 failed... Not sure if it just needs to dry longer or the ESCs are permanently busted! Story is in this video.

Video Time Line:
One Motor Fails at 7:30 Alarm at 9:44 All Motors Work initially at 4:20 Asking for help with Telemetry setup on Taranis 9XD 5:50 (lol)
