Mirumod GPS help needed

I cannot get this to work or I am too confused to understand it. All I want out of the GPS is the RTH (return to home) function. I checked to make sure it is working using hyper terminal and everything is fine. I do a downward left flat trim prior to takeoff to set the home position. It is confirmed...

Re: Drone keeps messing with me!

Found the problem. It was an intermittent cable between the sonar and nav board. Thanks for answering. It prompted me to look more closely at the problem.

Drone keeps messing with me!

My Drone 2.0 is driving me crazy. Sometimes it is so well behaved and the stability and reliability is incredible on some flights, but the next time I take it out, it may do whatever it wants without regard to inputs. I do a flat trim and calibration prior to each flight. I have tried various progra...

Extending motor arms.

I have a sport central cross on my 2.0 and managed to crack two or the motor arms. I found a carbon fiber square tube of the same exterior and interior dimensions and am going to replace the arms rather than spending more money on a new cross. I am considering making the arms two inches longer think...

Re: Absolute control reversed on Galaxy Tab 3

It wasn't the tablet, so I will post what the problem was in case anyone else encounters a similar issue. I had the tablet in this nice protective case . . . and then it hit me. The closures were magnetic. :oops: Think that will mess up a compass a little? I took the magnets out, replaced them with ...

Re: Absolute control reversed on Galaxy Tab 3

I contacted the manufacture. As it turns out there is a problem with this particular Tab 3. So I am going to return it to the store I bought it from and try another.

Re: Absolute control reversed on Galaxy Tab 3

I found a GPS app for the tablet that lets you calibrate the compass. (I am not sure what I changed on the tablet.) I did that and it seems better, but it doesn't seem to hold the settings. If I find a permanent solution I will post it.

Absolute control reversed on Galaxy Tab 3

My tablet was working fine. I changed the nav and main board on the drone 2.0 and now the absolute control is reversed. Tilt forward and the drone goes backwards, etc. Same with left and right no matter what program I use to control the AR Drone 2.0. Yet my Galaxy 3 phone work fine. I am not sure wh...

Re: AR Drone free flight keeps "loading"

I tried disconnecting the battery, but that didn't seem to help in my case. The only thing that works is to keep stopping and restarting the free flight application. I really don't understand why this just started or why I have to stop "mobile data" for my S3 to connect to the phone.

AR Drone free flight keeps "loading"

Just recently freeflight just keeps loading and will not actually boot up. I left it sit for 10 minutes and it just gets stuck at "loading" even though I verified it is connected to the drone 2.0. Coincidentally, if I have mobile data enabled my galaxy s3 will not connect to the drone. I have no ide...

Rubber band around camera to eliminate jello

I have balanced and straightened my stock props. But over time they seem to warp back into a curved position however the balance stays fine. So on occasion I get jello in my videos. Somewhere on this forum I saw something about putting a rubber band around the nose end where the camera is to stop th...

Re: ARDrone Flight app problem

I do all that every flight. What I meant by "crashing" is the application stops working. Sometimes it won't start and I get an error message, other times it will not connect to the drone. The drone itself is fine and flies well with AR freeflight. The movies are rock steady. I was trying the ARDrone...

Re: Aluminum sport cross installation instructions

No problem. I had not removed the boards yet. If I had gone that step I probably would have understood the orientation. Being kind of new at this I was taking my time so as to not make any mistakes. Premature panic set in. :roll:

Re: Aluminum sport cross installation instructions

Thanks. I got the numbers on the cross matched up to the numbers on the booms but could not figure out where the front was. Totally missed the pointy nub!!! Thanks so much. I really like the look of the new cross and it seems a lot more robust, except for the carbon fiber landing feet. They look pre...

Aluminum sport cross installation instructions

I just received the new aluminum sport cross. It looks great but there are no instructions with it. The arms are numbered 1 through 4 but I don't know what that means in relation to there orientation.

Thanks.
