Re: Free Central Cross with Broken Foot

Re: GPS Flight Recorder Module - Flight Test Results

Great first review, very well done. Sounds like a good few options to be explored once I get back in the air. I believe that if,it goes out of wifi signal it will return to home. Hope so anyway. But I am sure that will be one of your next tests. Will watch out for the next review with interest. 12in...

Re: Fingers Crossed................

Update......... The good news is there is not a drop of moisture left in the drone, the rice really did its job. The bad news is there is not a drop of life in it either. Main-board definitely screwed as is probably the nav board. Without power it is hard to tell if any of the motors are ok but I do...

Re: Drone with onBoard wifi Booster.

So to use this you would have to mod the main board?

Re: Fingers Crossed................

YIKES!! But did you rinse it off with CLEAN water first?? The salt or other acidic chemicals (if present) in the water might be worse for it all when it's dry? Damn dude.. good luck!!! Hey Jason, sad to say I didn't think of that, It was difficult to focus with a river running out-a my ass LOL. Jus...

Fingers Crossed................

Had my first real incident today - and it was a goody....................... Whilst flying on the coast with the tide right out (200 yards) the drone lost wifi signal and the wind took it out to sea all the while being mobbed by seagulls. Well, I wasn't having that !! So I picked up my tripod and ki...

Re: Which is better? Wifi Extender or Router in repeater mod

Hahah sure! I guess you visited Anna Maria (your profile shows you're in the UK?) That place is about 90 minutes drive south of my place -- but you're right, it would be an awesome place to fly! And you can see my set-up in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZ1K0jBjHgA Yeah many times to A...

Re: Which is better? Wifi Extender or Router in repeater mod

I am using the TP Link TL - WA830RE 300Mbps Wireless N Range Extender Same one I'm using exactly.. I got a piece of steel from the hardware store, bent it 90 degrees, and zip tied the works onto a tripod with the metal about 1.25" from the antennas, vertically. It's known as a reflector, which conc...

Re: Which is better? Wifi Extender or Router in repeater mod

I am using the TP Link TL - WA830RE 300Mbps Wireless N Range Extender. I power it with a modified Drone 2 battery (just cut off the connector and wired it to the power plug of the TP Link) As far as connection sequence it is Drone First, then Range Extender and finally connect Ipad or Iphone 5 to th...

Re: Mcluvvin my drone in London :)

The bearing mod is soooo simple, good vids on the tube............

Really notice the difference too, smoother flights and longer. Double bonus for not much money.

Re: Bottom camera

Hi LowFlyer, the bottom camera is only a 320 low res that the AR Drone 2 uses to hold position above the sonic sensor height. Bottom cam holds horizontal drone position all the time no matter what height... ultra sonic sensor only holds altitude below 10 meters... above ten meters switches to barom...

Re: Bottom camera

Hi LowFlyer, the bottom camera is only a 320 low res that the AR Drone 2 uses to hold position above the sonic sensor height. It can be useful to check position when flying at distance to check what is below you but it will give poor results for video. If you need a more downward angled video then l...
