Mini revolution is coming - Frsky M9 - High Sensitivity Hall Sensor Gimbal For Taranis X9D & X9D Plus

We all know how Taranis is very popular and widely spread among RC pilots.
Its known it has great SW, but now it could also get great high resolution M9 Hall Sensor gimbals.
Hall sensors are highly sensitive, they will not wear out quickly. Gimbal has an extremely smooth feel with the quad ball-bearings and the metal outer construction. Thicker 4mm stick ends give you a solid link to your controls. Fully adjustable tension and easily disable the self centering axis with one screw.
From specs they look like great 40$ upgrade for old Taranis as they are plug-n-play. Looking forward to try them.



SPECIFICATION:
  • Supply Voltage (VCC): DC 3.0 ~ ±0.5V
  • Sensitivity: 2.50 mV/G
  • Linear Output Voltage Range:
  • 0.1 ~ ( VCC +0.1) V
  • Quiescent Output (TA = 25°C, B = 0 G): 0.5 × VCC
  • Noise (no load): ≤40mVpp

FEATURES:
  • Hall sensor
  • 4 ball-bearings
  • Adjustable tension
  • Can be enable or disable self centering on both axis and ratcheting on the Y axis
  • Special material quality that wears well

Are you looking to get into the rapidly declining glow engine market? What the heck sort of question is that? Why would I want to get into a dying aspect of the hobby? Well the last two are valid questions. I am a glow engine fanatic and always will be. Yes I have tried to electric stuff but it really just didn't do anything for me. The gas/glow engine sector of this hobby is the foundation of RC powered flight. Unfortunately most new entrants to the hobby are quickly sucked up into the electric scene and seldom get the appreciation for the glow powered arena, and this is truly sad. Fortunately I have seen that change at the flying field I fly at. It was a 85% electric site several years ago and now they have an entire pit section for glow power only! That is really huge in my eyes.

Believe it or not glow engines maybe on the decline but there are millions of glow engines NIB, lightly used, and heavily used available on the market. These are also available for a fraction of the cost of buying them retail. Now do not get me wrong I am NOT bashing buying retail at all. Without retail sales the market would be doomed much faster. On the other hand if you are curious about a glow engine, very high quality and inexpensive engines are available for you to 'stick your toes in the water' with. Nearly 99% of the engines I buy are from RCGroups, eBay, or the 'other' big US RC forum. I have bought my share of retail NIB(New In Box) engines from 1988 - 2001 so don't...Continue Reading

This Brought Bobby back to life after his tail FET was completely burned out!

Sweeeet...

http://mcheli.blogspot.bg/2014/08/wl...il-mosfet.html

PS: These Russian guys are amazing to fix this, and it works, Bobby is flying amazingly awesomely sweeeet with his new tail motor transistor!

Bobby's tail hold now is ABSOLUTELY amazing, it is way way more locked-in now than it ever was before! In face it's even better than Nelly's tail hold, and she is K110 with that original K110 long tail motor and even an extended tail prop by 1cm overall! This does lock Nelly in completely, but at the end of the battery she gets a little tail wag, a very little one, hardly noticeable it is really, but it is there!

Bobby has ABSOLUTELY NO TAIL ANYTHING!!!

Stock tail motor for a V977 with stock tail prop(Walkera's lil one), its basically almost identical to the stock K110 tail prop!

So Bobby being all stock, except the tail motor's transistor that has been changed/re-wired to the K100's main motor transistor has way more current running to the tail motor! THis is why there is a much much much better and really really dead locked-in tail being all stock!!!

YeeeeeeeY

PPS: Bobby needs a new ESC power wires connector, to take those normal batteries! Today I'll try fix him untill the K100 arrives so that Bobby can be fully upgraded to become a proper, fully adjustable CP heli, just like Nelly!

sweeet..

This broken pin shall get fixed again. The current situation is not good!!

It keeps rebooting the ESC while flying, because of bad connection at the connector...

Sweeeet

PS : gonna fix that today...

Head shaft/spindle, cheaper than BG
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/5set...608.0.0.otsgQL

Spin 1600kv motor, cheaper than stock, lots of power and paired with Graphene or glacier packs no bogging, would say that I have same power as k120 but on k110, LOL
Direct fit, no mods, just use hcp80 main motor pinion
https://tmkarc1hobby.com/brushless-o...408-16000.html

Pinion, stock pinion would not fit on spin motor shaft, different size, so I used the pinion that comes with hcp80 main motor, same size as spin motor shaft

Great batteries, no need for graphene, this one works
http://www.buddyrc.com/glacier-25c-600mah-1s.html

Main shaft, V931, just need to sand down the top, a few mm to make it fit and match the head screw, I use Dremel for this and use a piece of toothpick as a set screw for the bottom, this would avoid the gear from slipping out and the toothpick as a fuse in case of a crash

Self Driving BASE 1 Rover - MountainTrack (5 min 1 sec)



This nugget caught the lion kingdom's attention last month. It seems to be doing the impossible: navigating a mountain dirt road with lots of shadows using only machine vision. For the 1st time in 11 years of UAV blog posts, there was no mention of GPS even being offered in the product. Of course, it didn't stay to the right like a running pacer has to do.


Knowing a convolutional neural network is just a storage & recall mechanism for images, it could have been done by training the neural network on many manual drives through the same 5 minute path. There's enough detail besides the path for the rover to ignore the shadows, determine where it is & steer to prerecorded headings. How the rover determined where it was in relation to the center of the path would be another trick. It could be a neural network trained on a bunch of offset camera views or it could be simple optical flow.


The key is the vertical detail from the trees & mountainside adding extra edges besides the sides of the path. It wouldn't do well on a bare path shaded by trees outside the camera view.


In other news, keeping with the modern slogan that the programming language is the computer, Tesla hired the guy who invented Swift & invented the LLVM as the VP of autopilot. 20 years ago, they would have hired a networking expert & 10 years ago, they would have hired a video expert. It would make sense for Tesla to invent its own programming language, since that's what everyone else is doing. Perhaps the world needs a programming language for neural networks instead of a library.


The LLVM has a good chance of replacing GCC. GCC has enjoyed a 3 decade reign, but ever since running it for the 1st time on an HP, it was slower than any commercial compiler.

Hello RC enthusiasts.

Hello fellow RC enthusiasts
I am simply posting a little bit about my RC career for anyone looking to figure out who I am.

I have been flying RC stuff since I was 12. At 51 years old now, that is quite a long time. I was self taught in flying and in building. Back then, clubs were not easy for me to get to. There was no internet to learn from. I simply read RC modeler magazine and RC flyer magazines to learn all I could. I learned how to build on my own and became quite good at it. I also considered myself an accomplished pilot. RC flying was my only passion really for years. I gobbled up any information I could.

After college, I got back into flying and started flying pattern at any meet I could get to. This was a really good way to learn precision. For those that did fly pattern, you could tell when they flew, we just didn't mash planes around the sky, we all had a purpose even when sport flying. To me, if it didn't look like something a real plane looked like when flying, I didn't do it. I was always trying to emulate full scale aerobatics like patty, leo laudenslager, bob hoover, jimmy franklin, and so many others.

That got me into the IMAC flying when this part of the hobby started taking off. I then started to compete is some local IMAC contests with my Extra 300L from godfrey that I scratch built. This was fun and challenging.

By this time, I started to create a family. After finishing the Extra 300L, I had my first son. Soon...Continue Reading

Guys,

My Trainee, William finally had another Training Session with his Super Cub this morning.

He did pretty good considering..................................

Let me tell you what happened. I made a Pre-Flight Check and Elevator and Rudder was working perfect.

I commanded his Super Cub to take-off and climb at 100 feet and checked out the model by showing William a powered loop and non-powered loop. He listened and acknowledged quickly so, I gave William the control. About one minute later, I asked William to attempt a loop and told him it doesn't matter which (powered or non-powered) and some strange reaction from the model was observed.

I asked William to attempt a powered loop at 100 feet and instructed him to give it DOWN Elevator and this time I was watching his fingers and the control sticks. To my horror, I witnessed William give ample DOWN Elevator and the model still didn't want to nose down or dive? At this time I asked William to turn over the controls over to me and I witnessed the model not respond to DOWN Elevator?

I CUT-OFF the Power and allowed the model to glide for a smooth (Kiss-The-Ground) landing and when we retrieved the model it was my HORROR that the STOCK plastic Clevis and more like the Plastic Pin from the STOCK Clevis had broken-OFF!

Fortunately, I came with my Park Zone T-28D "Airforce" Trojan and I had out-fitted my Trojan with Dubro "White" Clevis with Metal Pins and I gave him that one from...Continue Reading

Well Christmas has come and gone and I have been learning about my 2 new radios .
I have been working on getting programs written and setup for my planes and helicopters .
Then slowly moving them off of the JRXP 9503 2.4 radio over and onto the new radios so far I have moved and bound 5 onto the DX9 and as of short time ago I have 4 on the DX18G2 .
I have not made up my mind on the JR12X yet so I so far have not started to move any of those models .
I did put a deal together a sold my DX7 with an INDUCTRIX and a 3D foamy ...... gave them away but hopefully it will help to bring another person into our great hobby as well .

Thought I would post a couple pictures of the plane I programmed and bound up today on the DX18G2 It is an older EXTREME FLIGHT Plane a 58" EXTRA 300 in Royal Blue and Yellow with Silver contrast stripes . Been a great plane that I purchased from another member hot4teach hear locally .

To give a idea of how it sits. The belly tank is removable and clears the gear doors.

This is a recent build and I have been flying it at several hills outside Salida. I had a Zagi before but this flies much better. X6R receiver and I am using a Naze32 rev6 flight controller running Cleanflight with 3 flight modes and 3 rates on a switch. The stability works well in Horizon mode allowing me to fly it in conditions that would otherwise be too strong. The elevon travel is way too small in angle mode, don't know what's wrong there.
I also tried Patrick Emilson's fork of Baseflight on a Naze32 rev5.

This is a Bixler 1.1 I recently built to replace the one I shattered.
The whole plane is laminated with New Stuff 1.7 mil. The wings are glued in so are not removable. Inside the wings I added 2 additional fiberglass rods to stiffen it up. The left tip of the elevator fell victim to a hot soldering iron.
Power supplied by a Racerstar 2212 1800kv with a 7045 prop on 4S. The motor is mounted to an old quadcopter arm, taped for a tight fit.
Flip32 flight controller, L9R receiver.
Runcam Eagle on a 180 degree pan servo. Skyzone 500 mW vtx and microminim osd.
I had the old Bixler out 2 miles with this configuration.
