Autopilot Rocking Motion

When the autopilot takes over on my drone, it rocks back and forth more and more violently until I assume it will crash. Once I take control, the rocking stops. Also, the drone will sometimes spin -90° mid-flight at a random time, and will occasionally simply flip over and crash. Any ideas as to wh...

Re: Crash Bang Boom

I'd say that the drone was up about 30 ft or so when the wind caught it.

Thanks for the offer. I checked the prices, and I can get a new one cheaper from Amazon.

Re: Main camera

Thanks for the advice! Symon, I don't think that I am quite that experienced with electronics. I guess that I'll just have to order a new hull.

Main camera

The front camera assembly on my drone snapped off, severing part of the camera wire. :( Is there a way to repair this? I am ready to order replacement parts, but I thought that I'd check first.

Crash Bang Boom

This is my first major crash (recording courtesy of ARDF contest - thanks)

The wind suddenly caught my drone and took it into a tree, but nothing was damaged, as far as I can tell.

iPhone Web Application

Symon -

Where did you get the styles/images whatever for the iPhone web application for ARDF?

(the tools that make it look like a native iPhone application)

Thanks!

Re: Awesome Movie

TRON: Legacy does look like it will be really good.

As for 3D TVs, I think that I'll be waiting on those for a while. :D

Awesome Movie

How many of you have seen the new movie "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader?"

It's a really great movie, with beautiful visuals, fantastic special effects, and the best sea serpent battle ever. :)


Check it out in Digital 3D and reply with your thoughts!

Re: Kinect drone on Engadet

I just bought a Kinect and an AR.Drone hoping to do something similar. I'm not sure if that project can be copied with the AR. Drone... There seems to be a lot of extra hardware involved, and I'm not sure if the AR. Drone can handle it. There was a lot of discussion on weight limits on this thread:...

Re: CHECK THIS OUT!!!!

Only three letters: U-S-B :)

That would be awesome, but I'm not sure if one can connect a USB device to an iPhone very easily.
