New version 2.50 official release of Pitlab & Zbig FPV System


It is time to unveil new functionalities in firmware v2.50.
for Pitlab & Zbig FPV System

More info about system and former functionality you may find here:
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1811191

Support portal (beta version) with additional informations:
http://www.bigaj.com.pl/fpvsystem

This version is final release, it means we complete development and all tests performed by us and selected users (beta testers). Now this version is available to everyone.


Official release of version 2.50 is available for download on Pitlab web site:

http://www.pitlab.com/fpv-system/download.html

New 2.50 version consists of firmware for OSD, Autopilot, Groundstation and FPV_manager.exe, as well as manuals for new functionalities and also full list of new features and changes.

Note that general manuals about system and former functionalities are still valid and availabe.

The most exciting new features are:
- Takeoff support
- 10 Routes with 127 segments each and on screen route visualization
- Autonomous landing on selected runway based on ILS feature
- New navigation modes with “mountain mode” to avoid high obstacles
- New advanced stabilization options and course stabilization in manual flight
- RC channel monitor

How it works? Look at this video I’ve made today with these 5 simple steps:
1. unpack all belongings
2. Takeoff
3. Following route
4. Landing
5. Packing all belongings.

Takeoff, route, landing without pilot control. (5 min 24 sec)


But during this flight I’m only change throttle two times and change menu option also 2 times. All flight was absolutely without manual control of airplane.
Am I still a Pilot? Or should I look for another, more exciting hobby?

And what a beautiful bag of new tricks Pitlab has...

I definitely understand the beta disclaimer but the times I've been able to fly the beta firmware it has been perfect, though I haven't gotten to try the auto-land yet due to weather. Sure have enjoyed Pompecukor and Zbig'svideos of it though!

Alex took parts in firmware testing as well as manual review. But final polishing and translating from my pidgin English into American English was made by xtrmtrk (he is still working on it ) - many thanks!

Zbig,
I don't know if it matters to you or not but have you considered giving the OSD / AP a dedicated name? Pitlab has a number of different products.. Like Dedalus, SkyAssistant and Buddy Flight.. From a marketing point of view, it couldn't hurt to brand the best OSD / AP available to date with its own cool name..
Just my 2 cents...
David

PS. When can we expect Pitlab Logo'd stickers, hats and shirts? I'd buy them and I know people would put Pitlab stickers on their planes.

Don't even think about going anywhere my friend!! Once a pilot, always a pilot.. But very few people like you with the programming and development..

Now, that may not be the case for future fliers with Pitlab inside.. You almost don't have to be a pilot anymore.. But, it'll always helps! (Remember all the new Phantom "pilots" bumping into buildings and everything else?? lol At least in this case right now, you can't just mail-order a RTF plane and do the same... yet)

I still October 25, 2015 wrote a post 1650 which Sky has launched its on autopilot with firmware version 2.40. I am confident in the success of Firmware 2.50.
