  2. Hello all new to the group on a learning expedition. As the title suggests, I'm looking at using the NAZA MV2 package in a home brew drone I'm developing specifically for search and rescue. I'm not real familiar with the components of the package and wondering if anyone here is and if so, If like some guidance on its options. Specifically, I'm wanting away to incorporate search lights that can be controlled from a multichannel remote. The ability to turn them on and off, and adjust brightness. I'm hoping I can collect from the combined knowledge of the group. Thank you all in advance! Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

  5. DJI took the wraps off its latest drone today. Targeting industrial users, the Matrice 300 builds on the company’s Matrice platform, and sports a host of improvements from longer battery life, object detection sensors on all six sides and a 15 km video transmission range. The Matrice line has long been DJI’s all-in-one industrial product offering. These models are much larger and more utilitarian than its consumer or prosumer line and feature capabilities than align with those markets. Where consumers use drones for photography, industries and public service operations are increasingly looking to drones to gather data. The Matrice 300 is designed for data collection and aerial surveys. The drone is available with two different camera modules. The H20 features a 20MP camera with a 23x hybrid optical zoom, a 12MP wide-angle camera, and a laser range finder that can read distances from 3m to 1200m. The H20T adds a radiometric thermal camera to the sensor array, giving the drone additional functions. Integrated functions give the drone automated features such as the ability to automate routine photos — just mark the item on the controller’s screen, and when instructed, the drone will return to the area and take another photo of the object in the same location and angle. Other functions include the ability to track items while they’re moving. Like some of DJI’s other high-end drones, the Matrice 300 has a dual operator mode allowing two people to control the drone. Or, if needed, operators can switch control to another pilot located on the other end of the Matrice 300’s range, which should dramatically improve its range and safety. DJI stuffed this latest drone with additional improvements. Collision detection sensors are located on all six sides of the drone giving it 360 degrees of protection. A new controller ships with the Matrice 300, too, that’s loaded with updated flight software that appears to improve pilot control. Battery life is greatly improved too. DJI says the Matrice 300 has a flight time of 55 minutes, which is up from the Matrice 200’s 38-minute battery life and the 27-minute life found on the prosumer Inspire 2. Dual batteries power the device and allow for hot-swapping packs while the drone is on the ground, but not powered off. Pricing wasn’t released. The Matrice 300 will ship from DJI dealers in the second half of 2020. Source: https://techcrunch.com/2020/05/07/djis-latest-industrial-drone-has-55-minute-flight-time-15-km-video-range/
  6. Hello, does someone could help with wiring scheme for Futaba r6004ff receiver. I want to use it with Vortex 250 pro . Thank you Theos
  7. How do I bind a Flysky TH9x with Frsky DJT module to a Frsky sim dongle? The tx is one originally set up for 3DR Iris drone, and I don't know how to use it...
  8. Hello all, New to drones. Would like to find a setup like this: 1) decent quality drone, not too expensive 2) multiple fpv goggles, all seeing what the pilot is seeing. Want to have my entire family watching on the goggles, at the same time. Any suggestions?

  10. Not really sure, but its an interesting drone. Any software updates? Are you following the calibration like in this video:
  11. Ill fly it for a while all of asudden it starts toilit bowl effect. Land and recalibrate and fly again. Why would it keep loosing calibration. Has 9 to 14 satililites locked.
  12. How do I arm my THawk? I have a new x7 and new T Hawk, and other than assigning a switch to the controller( way beyond my current or future abilities) is there a normal way to arm this thing like pulling the gimbals to the center bottom of there arc?
  13. That's a good price considering its $439 on the DJI site for the fly more combo.
  14. I paid $335 in January for the FlyMore Combo. Like new - can't tell it was used except the label on the box for Password was wrong. But password is on the drone, so that wasn't a problem. Came in new box, too. Anxious to find some open space to play: it's like a flying computer with all of the features.
  15. Nice! I haven't looked, what are they going for on ebay? On the DJI site the refurbs are $259 https://store.dji.com/product/spark-refurbished-unit?from=pages-refurbished&vid=42141
  16. This is a great, inexpensive drone!. I just bought a refurbished one, the fly more package, on eBay. I just wish there was more open space to get used to it. San Diego doesn't have much that isn't developed or fenced off, and there are a lot of airports. I may have to drive to the desert so I can play with it and not be afraid of crashing into something or getting stuck in a tree.
  17. My drone doesn't transmit wi-fi, so I can only control it with the remote, can't use the app. It's a E68 Drone 2 and should have wi-fi and use the JY UFO app. But the wi-fi doesn't appear on my phone settings. I opened the drone up hoping to find a loose wire but everything is soldered except for the camera wires, and they were firmly connected to the wires to the circuit board. Who can refer me to some type of business that could check the circuit?
  18. In case it makes a difference in the needed components, that is the 260. The ones I bought are the newer tr280. I think the 260 was a kit. They changed some things and released the 280 version. If anyone is interested I got mine for $70.
  19. That's the one. I've decided to go with the Taranus QX7 so I guess what I need is suggestions on a reciever and camera set up that would work on this. The other thing in interested in is GPS but im confused as to what adding that whole system does. Sounds like all the pilot assist programs are flashed to the flight control. Do they require additional GpS unit to utilize all the functions or is that an entirely separate thing?
  20. Just curious, did you uever recover it?
  21. Welcome, looks like a nice drone, on Amazon they only sell it without the raio or battery it looks like Ebay its cheaper: https://www.ebay.com/i/184165387872?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=184165387872&targetid=882887725827&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9004212&poi=&campaignid=6469750705&mkgroupid=89041169916&rlsatarget=aud-622027676388:pla-882887725827&abcId=1141176&merchantid=6296724&gclid=CjwKCAjw1cX0BRBmEiwAy9tKHqrR1EFG8CM0F8HloKP6M_XMRsYPWhjr8qgLQ5idi90g7ikcBvMdNRoC9_QQAvD_BwE Here' a video for anyone not familiar (like me)
  22. Hi! Just starting out with drones - at a loose end during the Covid lockdown. Looking for some diagnostic help. I have either fried something or just being very stupid. I have a set-up including an Omnibus f4 pro, Spektrum SPM4649T and a Spektrum DX6i, currently using Cleanflight. I have flashed the Omnibus as instructed and get a relatively slow flashing blue led. The set-up binds correctly. I have tried connecting the SPM4649T to either the SBUS/PPM-5V-GND pins, or to the J8 connector (DSM2-GND-3.3V), and have tried as many combinations in the ports tab, with the Receiver in the config tab set as Serial based (SPEKSAT...etc) and serial receiver set to SPEKTRUM1024 (although I have tried SPEKTRUM2048 as well). In Clean flight I can get some activity out of the motors on the motors tab - so that part may be working. What I need guidance on just now is that in the Receiver tab. I have a set of coloured bars for A, E, R, T, AUX1, AUX2, AUX3 - all centred at 1500 except T which is at 885. That looks good, but I cannot get any activity by moving the sticks on the DX6i. What am I missing? Is there magic connection between DX6i and Omnibus that I have missed? Or have I cooked something?
  23. Hey gang, I’m new to the drone world and need some advice. I decided to get a decent drone after a couple toys so I bought a Swift tr280 tilt rotor pnp kit. im pretty overwhelmed by the options out there as far as controls, gps, cameras etc. what I really need is just some suggestions on what gear I need to get this thing flying that will be compatible with it. It’s a 3s, 4s and has a CC3D flight control. I’ve decided on a Taranus Q7 radio so I need suggestions on fpv gear cam and goggles etc, receiver and gps. im a bit confused on the GPS as far as what’s compatible and exactly what the capabilities are when these are added. I appreciate any help you all could give, I’m totally out of my depth on this.
  24. Looks like most every other drone in the $150 to $300 price range where what I look at more in that price range is the cost of additional batteries, replacement props and the number of vendors that actually carry those parts for it. Kind of stinks when you purchase a drone, then realize you want additional batteries or replacement props and find out the hard way they cost an arm and leg or they're not available for purchase on Amazon or Ebay.
  25. Just out of curiosity and possible further trouble shooting, have you tried the RTH on the Ophelia app screem as well as the remote? Just thinking, maybe there's the possibility of just a problem with the remote RTH button.
  26. HI Rendroll, I'm able to do a successful calibration. After hearing from you, I'm thinking my RTH is broken. I don't use the Follow Me function. I'm mostly sitting due to being in a wheelchair mostly. Have fun flying!
