OpenTx-Espanol-Soundpack

DESCARGAR DE AQUI->
https://github.com/pekote/OpenTx-Espanol-Soundpack

OpenTx Español Soundpack, paquete de archivos de sonidos para OpenTX que corre en radios tipo Taranis

Hice estos audios para un gran amigo que tiene dificultades con el ingles, pense que compartirlos por aqui podría ser buena idea.

Bajar el archivo Pack Sonidos OpenTx Isabel.zip y copiarlo en la tarjeta SD de la radio.

En la configuracion de la radio, seleccionar lenguaje de voz "Español"

INSTRUCTIVO PARA GENERAR MAS ARCHIVOS-> Para generar mas archivos de audio, se edita el excel, que genera archivos de texto, que luego deberan ser copiados en una ventana de CMD. Esto generara archivos de texto que serán leidos por el software BALABOLKA (tambien disponible para bajar) en proceso batch y generará todos los wav files que necesitemos. Hay que instalar el pack de audio de ISABEL junto con BALABOLKA.

El proceso es bastante rapido y se pueden generar cientos de audios en cuestion de minutos. Subí algunas imagenes de ayuda.

Disculpas lo escueto del istructivo, me pueden contactar cualquier duda.

Dejo un link a mi canal de youtube

Mini Skywalker with Micro APM, I made this to carry it on vacations with my family.

Interesting thing, I didn't glued it... it is just wrapped with fiber glass tape. Since all electronics inside are quite complex, just in case something arise, I let the possibility to open the plane whenever I want.

Last wednesday I reached the clouds! This was one of the items in my personal "wish list" from long time ago, so I'm very happy for it.

Here is the video!

Bix 3, and Hkpilot32 (pixhawk clone). I was flying normally not too high, it was a bit windy.

I was flying in CRUISE mode then I changed to STABILIZE (0:57). Then I realized that It was loosing some altitude so I changed back to CRUISE (1:21).

I don't know, why the plane was not able to recover, it fall continuously till crash... the wind was coming (aprox) from the right side of the plane at (1:21)

It could be that there was a problem in the elevator, since the plane was not able to level up.
I performed a MOD in the stock bixler 3 kit. The tail group was fixed with 8 strong magnets and an small wooden stick to be able to disassemble the entire tail easily when I go for vacations in my car. I'm able to store the bix3 in the factory box.

Nevertheless, I was surprised the long trip going down without compensate the elevator. I checked the APM logs and the RCOUT of channel 2 (elevator) was not so high.

If I had switch back to MANUAL or STABILIZE I could probably save the crash since in that modes, the elevator output could be higher... but no, I was terrified and keep on in CRUISE mode waiting to recover it... with the elevator stick fully down.

The elevator response in MANUAL or STABILIZE mode is more strong than in CRUISE mode, but I was expecting that CRUISE mode was able to level up the plane like STABILIZE mode.

Near to the ground the plane was able to level up, and also It seemed to raise it nose a bit just before to hit a füCk!%&% tree.

Before the crash I performed lot of flights with the bix3 "tail MOD" without any problem. So that's why it makes no sense to me that there was a problem with that, also the fact that the controller log showed that the elevator channel output was not too high before the crash.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Just to take into account, I was lucky to not hurt anyone. The place I flight is not so populated, but the plane speed was very high and could cause a disaster.

I built the amazing Simple Soarer - I'm really happy with this plane, so simple, so fun, so silent.

It's a pleasure to hear the wind while I watch the plane flying like the seagulls.

Fully Recommended!!

After deal a couple of months of configuration and tests I did my first "automated flight".

A couple of years ago, I saw a plane with an autopilot in youtube and let's say that I fell in love... (for sure my wife will not read this).

Since I'm the only guy in my RC club working with an APM, the RCG and other forums were fundamental for this job.

I have to say that I'm pretty new in the RC world, about 3 or 4 years and this goal is quite important for my personal record!!.

Some specs:

HK Bixler 3 + stock motor
APM 2.6 + 915Mhz telemetry
Radio FRSKY Taranis - X8R receiver
2x lipo 2200

(there are few subtitles in spanish but the video is showing all the action!)

Looking for an small airframe for very basic FPV (no OSD or autopilot). Just some fun in the beach with my family. I found this project from Red20rc->

MICROWING
http://red20rc.org/microwing-uav-part-4/

Today moring I maidened and this was the result->

MicroWing (2 min 6 sec)


Here are the specs:
Made of FoamBoard
profile KFM7
Wing Span 85cm (really small and portable)
Motor DYS: CF2812-12 RPM/V: 1200
ESC: 30A
Prop: 8×4 (Probably too small)
Mobius Cam
5.8Ghz Fatshark 250mW
Lipo: 1300mA/h

AUW: 590gr

Didn't have time to test the FPV gear yet.

The wing is a bit heavy, the FPV gear is about 100gr (cam + tx). I had to peel off the paper of one side of most of the parts of the wing, otherwise it could weigth 100gr more.
Here in Argentina is not easy to get good materials for construction and also electronic components =(

The unbalanced prop caused the release of the screw that hold the Mobius camera (PAN Servo).
Without video, I pulled out my googles to look where the plane was but It was too late ->

CormoranFinal (4 min 4 sec)


The plane is the "Cormoran". It is a very simple scratch build made with PVC pipes and one botle of car oil.

After to see lot's of SkyWalkers for FPV I decided to build my own version.
I have some experience building foamies coping techniques from flitetest and RCG, some of my proyects were successfulls others no but I'm still working to improve myself.
Construction was very simple, it took a couple of days to build the entire plane (I also have 2 kids to attend!!!) Pictures talks by themselves.
Performance It is probably far away from SW but the plane can do same task, it was by far cheap and of course I'm proud to fly my scratch build plane!!!
