Hey everyone, I’ve been flying dji drones for a long time, but I thought it was time to upgrade in order to carry my nicer DSLR cameras for my photo/video stuff. I was gifted an old Cinestar 8 with the mikrokopter electronics stack. I’m new to heavy lifters. I understand it’s going to need a lot of tuning, but I’m having some issues with it. I’ve gotten pretty comfortable flying manual but this is obviously not ideal on the job, so I’m trying to get the altitude and gps modes to be more reliable. I’ve calibrated the compass and gps, yet it has the tendency to drift around quite a bit, even though checking the compass and gps says it’s calibration is spot on and has great satellite communication. Also, altitude hold feels very unreliable. It’s obvious it’s trying to work, but it moves far too much to put me at ease. While the position hold is unreliable, I’m far less concerned with that as I am with altitude control, since precise elevation is crucial in areas I often have to fly. I’m curious if this drone is capable of being set up more like some of the smaller drones. As in, the copter once armed remains idle until throttle is lifted beyond a certain point. Then, on enabling alt hold, the throttle stick will switch to adjusting the speed of climb/descent rather than actual throttle. I’ve found the vario altitude hold, but this is still not quite the preferred behavior and still feels unreliable. Obviously I have a lot to learn, coming from mostly plug and play ready to fly systems. That being said, any help you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated!
We finally have our hybrid UAV, the HY1000 Wheelbase: 1000mm No payload weight: 4.5kg (no fuel) Max take-off Weight: 10 kg Max speed: 10m/s Max flight time: Over 4 hours Voltage: 22V Generator output: 1 kw Generator weight: 1.6 kg Fuel tank: 1L (Customizable) Fuel consumption: 800g/H(Max) An internal combustion engine consumes gasoline and spins a generator to ensure a 22V output. Besides this, a 6S lipo battery package is also installed onboard to offer emergency back-up power for quick climbing and quick maneuvering. With 1kg payload, the flight time is more than 3 hours, and with 3kg payload like a high-end camera, the flight time will be still more than 1 hour. Check out it here: www.sandwichdrones.it Our hybrid drone is powered by the GS1000 Gas Generator This generator is suitable for UAV systems able to lift 1.6 kg plus the fuel weight, with a maximum power usage of 1KW. Fuel consumption: 800g/kwh Generator weight: 1600g Accessories weight: 150g (backup battery) Generator dimensions: 21 x 16 x 9 cm Can be mounted on standard 12 or 10 mm standard tubes for gymbal support or any other support on REQUEST. All our carbon fiber parts are CNC made. You can buy one from here https://sandwichdrones.it/products/gs-1000-hybrid-generator
I am moving and need to sell this platform. The price has been reduced to $6,500.00 and the shipping can be split, I will entertain serious reasonable offers, shoot me a reply!! This unit is a solid platform and easy to fly, if you have flown other DJI products (Phantom or Inspire) you will find this as easy or easier to fly than those and this unit has less than 1 hour on it. I started my business focusing on construction inspection and engineering surveys, but life has pulled me in a different direction so I am selling my equipment. If I didn’t have to sell, I wouldn’t, the package includes the following: - 1 DJI Matrice 600 - 1 Matrice Controller - 4 sets of TB47S batteries (24 total) - 4 100W Power Adapters/chargers with AC Cables - 1 DJI Lightbrige 2 - Ground Unit - 1 Run Cam Owl Plus FPV camera - 1 Smart Powercharge SPCM100+ deep cycle battery charger - 2 Controller Lanyards - 3 USB to micro USB cables - 1 Go Professional - DJI Matrice 600 Travel Case - 1 Ronin MX - 2 Ronin Batteries - 1 Ronin Battery charger - 1 Ronin Controller - 1 Sony IR cable (allows the Sony camera to be triggered remotely) - 1 Remote start/stop unit (used to remotely start/stop video, and trigger the camera) - 1 Carry Bar - 1 Ronin Stand - 1 Custom Pelican 1560 hard case for the Ronin The pictures can be found here. My storage device takes a minute or two to load. Since these pictures were taken, the Matrice was assembled and test flown twice. Everything works great, just getting out of the drone business. https://files.mycloud.com/home.php?brand=webfiles&seuuid=3aaffc77b20824c3c439772fcc484011&name=Matrice_-
