Re: Macgyver RC Mod for the AR Drone

OK, I still don't know which mod I have (miru or macgyver), but with assistance from the seller I got my mod from (who has been helpful but really doesn't say much... incredibly short email replies only telling me what to do to solve the issue I have but not telling me ANYTHING other than "do this"....

Re: Tinkering with the AR Drone 1.0 - is it still worth it?

I guess noone coming to the defense of the ar.drone pretty much answers the question.

Re: Downgrading from firmware 1.11.5...?

... and a question: in my attempts trying to upload the downgraded firmware onto the drone, I ended up with TWO firmware files on the drone instead of one. I accidentally loaded one with the wrong name (and that didn't work of course) and after the upgrade, it's still in the /update folder. How can ...

Re: Macgyver RC Mod for the AR Drone

Thank you Tizzy - I will look out for differences. See if I can figure out what they are, if any.

Re: Downgrading from firmware 1.11.5...?

Success! Thank you for the instructions - I successfully downgraded the firmware to 1.5.1 (which I needed for the version of the macgyver mod I have to work properly). The AR Drone now works and flies well with the mod TX. (the reason I needed to downgrade was that the drone behaved erratically with...

Post by AR.Tommy » 06 Jul 2015, 14:56 If it still refuses the file - chances are, that the flash memory is full (for whatever reasons) or it's corrupt. You can telnet to the AR.Drone and check with the command "df" if there is enough space. OK, I managed to do that by reading up on telnet... here'...

Re: Macgyver RC Mod for the AR Drone

Does anyone know the differences between the mirumod and the macgyver mod for the AR drone? Are they just different "forks" of the same mod? Is the software on the Arduino for these two different or the same? Are they interchangeable...?

Re: Macgyver RC Mod for the AR Drone

I know... I know, I'm years late... My girlfriend just got me the AR. Drone 2.0 with the FlySky CT6B Transmitter & Macgyver mod already installed, but I think someone tried to modify the config file for the Transmitter at some point. The receiver detects the transmitter, but none of the controls wo...

Re: Downgrading from firmware 1.11.5...?

Thanks a lot for the pointers. Yes, I got the port set to 5551 in every attempt, but still no cigar. I've never used telnet before - is there some resource that describes how to do what you say taking into consideration that that would be the user's first ever telnet session? :-) I wasn't aware that...

Tinkering with the AR Drone 1.0 - is it still worth it?

Hi, I already spent close to $800 in original purchase, parts, MacGyver mod, other upgrades, etc. to create a quadcopter that flies well, fun to fly, hackable etc. Alas, the perfection I'm looking for hasn't even been approached, much less achieved. Constant unexplained crashes, instability, various...

Downgrading from firmware 1.11.5...?

Hi, Newbie here on the forum, hope I'm posting this in the right place. I need to downgrade the firmware of my AR Drone 1.0 from the factory latest (1.11.5) version to an older one, and I already tried everything I could think of but I can't make it work... - I can seemingly connect to the drone via...
