  1. Has anyone on this forum built a 3DR DIY Quadcopter before ? Did you stick to the standard components or did you swap things about ? The assembly from what I have seen looks easy. The electronics again looks easy if standard parts are used. Using non standard parts is not a real headache as long as you can adapt to the changes, again from what I could see. I am toying with an idea, if ever I am in the position to, that has been rumbling in my head. Like most things, with me, flying off at tangents is really common. Anyway question asked and awaiting any nice clean wholesome comments, thanks
  2. I am currently trying to change the flight mode while flying my copter but cannot do it properly. Using mission planner's actions tab I can change the flight mode while the copter is disarmed on the ground without issue. Once I arm the drone it no longer responds to mode changes. This appears to be true for any mode change including RTL and AUTO. The flight computer is the pixhawk with standard firmware loaded onto it. I am using a 3dr DIY quad copter kit and a frsy receiver bound to an iris+ controller. I am unsure where the problem lies and am starting to think it may have to do
  3. Hi guys,I am building my first racing drone. I thought it would be easy as it's not the first radio controlled thing I've built (electric longboard) but apparently a drone is a whole different story I finished the frame as far as I could without obstructing the electronics, but I simply don't know how to connect everything together. Although I already checked with multiple Tutorials and other resources I came to no definite conclusion, so here I am Here's 2 images of all the parts I have, do. you know how to put them together? Image 1: Image 2: It may be that the pictures c
  4. UAVs or as many know and call them, “drones”, have become quite popular in the last couple of years and it seems that, nowadays, everyone has them. This is mostly because the market is over flooded with a plethora of cheap models, and you can buy a drone to have fun with in the back yard for less than $20. Of course, if you want a more sophisticated model that goes over 60mph, or has a 4K camera and basically, does the flying on its own, you will have to cash out from $400 and up. Is there a solution that offers all those great features, but for less money? Yes, there is and it’s called a
  5. Hello, I am new to the drone world and would love to build my own for some aerial photography. I have experience with flying as I own a smaller quad but I am looking for something bigger and a little project for the winter. I am trying to figure out how I could (if at all possible) have a single transmitter for the quadcopter and the gimbal. I am leaning towards buying an S500 kit or F450 kit and I'm not sure which yet. Any guidance is much appreciated! Thank you! Robert
  6. Here, I share my experience about how to diy a fast drone. In the past, I used QAV 250 frame equip with 1806 motors and 3S Lipo battery can fly very fast; and now I use 2205/2305 motor, come with small and light frame, DALRC6045 propeller, the speed get 185km/h. It is very important to choos your drone parts, these are my experience of how to choose drone parts? Motor: I have used many different motors, and these are some of I used. 2205 motors: equip with dalrc5045 3 propeller, their thrust is about 1200g(motor’s weight is about 30g, 4 motor is 120g) 2206 motors: I
