    Check all the wires to make sure the ground is good, voltages are good (12 volt and 5 volt) and that you have a solid connection on the video wires.

    It is easy to have a break in the wires at...

    Many years ago I had a bunch of friends(About 20) on a twin otter who were skydiving and were accused of punching a cloud (IFR). The FAA went after each one and wanted a $25,000 fine each and they...

    I second that. He is going to be real quiet

    He most likely deleted all of his online presence too. Not that deleting his posts would help him much as they will most likely get the backups.

    As reported.

    He used the helicopters siren and speaker system to call out who ever was operating it.

    Deputies say minutes later the owner of the drone came running out of his nearby home....

    I think it was autonomous not FPV or LOS. Not 100% sure, but one article implied he was inside his house while it was flying. Another possibility was the helicopter overtook the plane from behind,...

    That will work or a loose piece of paper inside that will blow away on impact.

    I am sure they will fix this loop hole

    Can anyone identify the plane? FX-79?

    What will be interesting is he innocent until proven guilty or guilty until proven innocent with the FAA. Or does he have to prove that he flew the plane...

    I think it is in the setup somewhere. I have APM's and Pixhawks both on PPM that have no visual lag in stabilized mode. There are some auto modes that give you very limited control which may have...

    https://youtu.be/sHZP6JhZWqI
    this is an APM 2.6 on stabilized mode. The APM does limit your throws as it needs some for control. It is a real pig until you do the autotune, real slow response.

    This stills seems inefficient, time wise and equipment wise. I assume they can only fly in VFR conditions and no night flying, so the day is limited. The UAV will spend about 1/2 its day on a...

    0.25 second is really slow. So if you you move he plane, the surface moves .25 seconds later? I use APM 2.6 and pixhawk's there might be a slight delay, but nothing like that. Adjusting the PID...

    Imagine the number of batteries and chargers they will need. That alone makes it impractical without VERY high delivery fees.

    Unless they are going gas which would be very politically incorrect...

    Liability has to be huge. One kid struck by a prop and there will be some big lawsuits. Operators will not be able to control a heavily loaded drone with a mechanical failure during flight. If you...

    It amazes me what people post on the internet. Stating on an open forum you are refusing to register is openly admitting guilt and intent. Real bad idea. If you get caught, you are really...

    Very true. For those of you who are posting that they will not register, you are admitting guilt / intent on a pubic forum. It will take the feds about 1 hour of work to figure out exactly who you...

    You might be able to mount the camera in the nose port and push the batteries back to get CG. I would recommend the landing gear to protect the camera on landing. The Nex7 is about 550 grams. I...

    I have tried RHCP on 1258 and LHCP on 1280 numerous times. The 1280 has diversity and saw filters so the 1258 ends up in a tree. Does not work. The antennas are not chinese.
