Hi guys and gals
So far everything seems to be working on the software however when I disconnect led and try to startup (in att mode) using one of four csc commands I get a double yellow blink then 3 red blinks and if I continue holding command led blinks green three times only once, then back to yellow and red blinks? Is this normal?
Also I noticed when I was calibrating sticks the elevator bar moved to -1000 but only 987 the other way after calibration would this effect csc commands starting motors? I bypassed MC to make sure my esc were working , when I connected to throttle channel on rx they all worked fine? Please help

Does anybody know if there is a gage for determining the size of bullet connectors?

The default serial speed of my HC-05 is 9600 baud which was fast for serial communications in 1975, but I decided to increase it to 57600. The module is connected to S5, so I needed to set the SERIAL5_BAUD to 57. This can be done in various ways, depending on your Ardupilot ground station software.

To change the serial speed on the BT module it is necessary to use a USB/TTL adapter to set the device in "AT" mode which on my module is achieved by holding down a button switch while powering on. In this mode the default speed is set to 38400 baud, so I configured the communication speed on the terminal software to match.

Using the terminal software (Serial USB Terminal on Android phone), I connected to the USB/Serial converter:

After disconnecting and rebooting, I was able to connect to the ground station at a much faster speed via BT

The Frsky X8R receiver sends RSSI data back to the XJT Frsky transmitter module so it can be displayed on the radio. However, I wanted to also display it on my groundstation. I believe the same applies for OSD.

The RSSI signal lead on the X8R receiver is connected to the RSSI pin on the F405-Wing. The receiver is connected to the FC via SBUS.

I have set the Arduplane rssi params:

RSSI values are displayed as percentages.

Aerial photography, inspection, logistics, plant protection, surveying, security and other applications in the field of UAV industry, the line of sight remote control, image real-time cloud processing, high-definition video stream back to the ability to put forward higher requirements. As the latest generation of cellular mobile communication technology, 5G is also the best communication technology for building digital sky. What changes will it bring to the drone industry?
Compared with 4G, 5G has obvious advantages in the communication coverage of networked UAVs. The new large-scale antenna array adopted by 5G can flexibly and automatically adjust the phase of the transmitted signals of each antenna to meet the regulatory requirements for low-altitude airspace within 500 meters. And the future flight demand of more than 120 meters of drones in the city's high-rise environment. In addition, 5G also has more advantages in remote fine control of drones, flight data security, and industry empowerment.
Networked drones to promote efficient low-altitude economy
Recently, the Dongguan Power Supply Bureau's substation operation professionally applied the “5G UAV+Programming Operation” pilot in China for the first time. It also marks that the Dongguan Power Supply Bureau's substation operation professional is the first in China to realize “5G UAV+Programming Operation”. ".
Compared with the traditional air duty mode, the 110 kV line operation requires two on-duty personnel...Continue Reading

"I'm happy to let you know that the Vintage Radio Control Society Technical Committee has selected you as the 2019 winner of the Dr. Walter Good Technical Achievement award for your work in vintage radio conversions. "

Mike Desest
President, Vintage Radio Control Society

And my response...


I was totally surprised and blown away by the award! I didn't think anyone really paid attention to my ramblings on the internet

My family is out of town this week and my dog doesn't take good photos so I'll have to get back to you on that. I'll try to get help this week but next week for sure.

I should put a little background in my RCG blog. If you are interested, I started building models around 5. Here is my first Control Line model in 1973. I was 10. Its a Baby Ringmaster. My Dad made me do it all myself. My first RC model was an Airtronics S-Tee. Here it is in 1978 after my first 'crash'. You can see the Royal serves askew. And to finish the embarrassment, here is my first truly successful RC model in the summer of 1982. It was a Carl Goldberg Eaglet with my original Royal Radio. Its interesting to note that Royal was my first conversion. I flew it this year at Torrey Pines for the Katie Martin Tribute.

I fulfilled the requirements for an AS degree in Electronics while attending Community College and High School at the same time. I put myself thru College earning a Bachelor Degree in Aerospace Engineering. My graduate studies were in Mechanical Engineering. I'm a Lifetime AMA member, EAA Technical Counselor and Flight Advisor. I hold an FAA Repairman's Certificate and am a Current Flight Instructor. I've also included a photo of my 'full size' models. A Kitfox and scratch built wooden Biplane. Both are current and airworthy.

Please thank the Committee for me. It truly is an honor.
