C*lorado dreams


The GPS satellite map & collective hack seem to work so far. Automatic takeoffs always work & altitude seems to be more stable when the map shows a satellite directly overhead. U don't really need the satellite web page since there is a satellite position in the uBlox output.

If GLONASS was supported, you'd have continuous altitude coverage.

Had the uBlox suddenly drop to 0 satellites & start returning 0, 0, 0 for no reason in flight. It may have been damaged in a crash. Maybe the cell phone interferes with it. The uBlox failure resulted in one of the greatest quad rotor saves ever, but didn't record it because GPS was broken.

Unfortunately, had 1 landing she couldn't finish. She descended for a while, then started oscillating in place until the battery died. In fact, all our batteries have been dying really fast. Also, the cell phone definitely interferes with the 2.4Ghz, so U won't be downloading GPS web pages while flying.
