Tom-Fly would you mind terribly if I popped this into my manual…I call it a manual but really I am just collecting what I find on the subject and pulling it into a single document for the community. I just don’t want to do that with out your ok.
thats a great idea Ricky the manual and thank you,hope to get a Skydroid after xmas
I hope you do as well.
Nice to see the community grow and we get to learn from each other.
As soon as Tom gets back to me I will post the link to the document again.
I have ordered replacement antenna for my existing receiver and have a second receiver on order. Unfortunately there is a postal disruption here in Canada and so mail is moving slowly.
Skydroid what does this mean. I see it on the AliExpress site.
must be for working in a toxic area,no idea really
RickG, of course you allowed join that document to your manual. One document is really good way to deal with that.
Hey where in the world are you…the graphic showed iceland so I was curious.
I’m from Finland, Iceland is good landmark near us…
Folks here is my document that I collected everything into.
If you have more you think should be added, please feel free to let me know.
Interesting, that is somekind of cover for dust protection ? rain, sandstorms etc ? Nice.
No way. My wife and I are in Helsinki next year. I am so looking forward to it. I have never been in that part of world and really excited to see it.
Perhaps we can grab a coffee. then lol.
ya they build Agricultural drones and so I guess they don’t want it getting wet.
wow, nice. Sure, cup of coffee is always good. Helsinki is far away from here, but distance shouldn’t be a problem. Welcome.
Well if we are still friends next year I will message you lol.
In the mean time have an awesome day.
Are they planning protection for whole aircraft, or only for receiver, … It would be nice to fly in rain etc. Maby agricultural liquids are not so neutral compared with water/snow.
no idea. My guess is a receiver with a waterproof boot of some sort.
I silicone conformal coat all my electronics to defend against water anyways…but stiff a boot on the receiver would be handy. I hate futaba style servo connectors. They can pull free. Hot glue is my friend.
Anybody flown this yet?
I believe Tom has had it the air.
Mine is down for GPS issues.
Thanks for the manual Rick well done have bookmarked itcan you get 6 flight modes on the pixhawk with it please
I have not found how to do the 6 flight modes. On a Taranis its easy because you can do a mix of switches. But the Skydroid has no mixing of switches so I have not found how to do it. Also I am not sure if there are other modes that can be selected in the Tower app. In other words can you simply select a mode in Tower and it changes via Mavlink.
It’s something I need to play with.
I am thinking you could change two switches so their top and botton PWM ranges stack on top of one in other and assign the same channel to them. But like I said, not played with it yet.
Perhaps something to experiment with tonight.
