Just a quick question.. With all those fancy calibrations and such.. If you travel with your multicopter to take some shots in other countries.. you have to repeat every calibration because of the other country.. ?

Thanks

Answered this in the AQ forums as well, but for RCG readers -- no, once the initial calibrations are done, when traveling to a new location you would just need to enter the magnetic inclination and declination for the new area. No need to redo the calibrations. The calibration is meant to adjust the sensor values based on inconsistencies in manufacturing (no 2 sensors are exactly the same) and to adapt to the magnetic "profile" of your multicopter frame (make corrections for any magnetic materials which may affect the magnetic sensor readings).

ARF, just waiting for the video TX

I hear good stories about FPV & AQ, so let it come.

Nice FPV ship, Frank!
Make sure to post your setup and especially some flight vids.

@ richkphoto: the cheap ones use a linear voltage regulator, which tend to heat up.
To be on the safe side you can use the other clones or go for the original:

Hi All,

I would like you oppinion about a frame setup and AQ controller.
Do you think it would be hard to get it fly good in that config ?

Thanks a lot

Hi Eric,
who stole the 2 armes of that former +Hexa?

In general this should be doable though nobody tried so far. I.m.o. it'll get a bit tricky getting the pitch axis stable.

What's the sizes of it?

Exactly what I told him..
Centerplates should be 170mm and booms I think it was about 31cm..

Hi Kinderkram,

Thanks for the answer.
It's just that i custom designed a frame for "Jessestr" to be Y6 and HEXA and at the last minute he told me he want a Quad X ...

Just asking cause i have see very nice setup on MultiWii for AP in that shape.

I don't see why not... with some tuning... The motor mix table will be useful for getting the pitch/roll axis movement speed matched up, and then probably a generous dose of PID tuning will be necessary because like Norbert said it will be sensitive. But the 32-bit AQ goodness should be able to handle it.

I saw in the documentation that you supported HoTT telemetry so probably I can also use the HoTT radio to fly.
But when searching on these forums I see lots of people having trouble with HoTT and PPM.

Is it already fixed? How can I attach my MX12 & GR12 to the AutoQuad. Saw some people that needed to power the receiver with a BEC because of dropouts it the signal.. Anyone got more info on this?

At last.. if it doesn't work.. is there a way to let it work? Convert to Spektrum Sattelite (never used spektrum.. don't know anything about it)

Thanks

We do support PPM sum recievers, but it might require changes in the code, since almost every manufactorer implements PPM in a different way. We are working on a way to make those adjustments from the GUI, but there is no such thing as a "universal" PPM implementation that will magically make every PPM sum RX work.

We have a team member that flies a Hott radio on PPM, so I am sure you can get some help. Several people have also successfully used the popular FrSky systems.

Thanks
