    Solved need help with custom elevon mixing

    hello there beware of bad English 🤣 currently i'm building a wing ( more specifically i will use the FT spear) using my nine eagles j5 pro transmitter (sadly i crash landed the plane...) so i'm using arduino 101 in order to control the plane, but who ever knows the j5 pro, it doesnt have mixing...

    Power connector for the Arduino

    Will the red (positive) be soldered from the inside? As far as I can see the black (negative) is soldered from the outside. I don't want to take risks because I don't have electricity or electronic information. I would appreciate it if experienced friends answer. Male barrel jack 2.1mm...

    Arduino Scratch Build - "Screamin' Seagull II"

    Welcome to my build log for my next Arduino controlled RC scratch built airplane! Much of this project is going to be based off of work (especially in terms of software) found in my previous build log here. After my *very* successful test flight with my last Arduino plane, I've decided to...

    Scratch Built ROV V2

    Its time for version 2 of the scratch build ROV. The last design worked on land, but not in the water...which is unfortunate for a vehicle designed to work under water. Despite this fail with version 1, there was a lot that I learned about ROV design that I can apply to version 2. The main goals...

    I'm Going Under (water)

    Not sure where to post this. Maybe better off on the Flotetest forum, but I guess scratch building is technically correct. I was thinking about ocean kayaking the other day (as you do), and had an idea. I am a recreational fisherman, and have always wondered what I could see under the surface...

    Experimental Arduino RC Plane Build Log

    Hey guys, I'm using this thread as a sort of build log for my next Arduino airplane. I've been working with UAV avionics as a hobbyist, intern, and university researcher for about 2 years now. This will be the first plane, though, that I will lay out exactly how all the systems come together...

    Arduino RC Plane Flight!

    Hey guys, Check out this video of my most recent Arduino based scratch built RC airplane! Right now it is manually flown (with a scratch built Arduino transmitter), but I plan on developing autopilot modes and eventually make it fully autonomous - including takeoff and landing. The main...

    FT Corsair with flaps and lights

    Hi guis! In my main projekt (Dc3) i runned out of glue so i decided to built something else over the weekend. I like the shape of the corsair and i ever wanted to have a warbird :D. Anyway i had the problem, that you can´t get a 4 channel reciver from Multiplex and at the FT Corsair the ailerons...

    Using Arduino as an autopilot

    Hi every one, I’m working on an octocopter that I would like to be auto-piloted. To do that, I’m considering to use my Arduino Mega 2560 to generate PWM signals to «*mimic*» a receiver. I’m using a SP Racing F3 and cleanflight. So more precisely, instead of using a RC command, I want the...

    Trouble connecting to SP Racing F3 through Serial

    Hi all, I'm trying to implement control of my quad through an XBEE. I started on this thread, which got me into the Multiwii Serial Protocol. Another thread on the MultiWii forum goes into interfacing the board through Arduino, and this library was brought up, which should execute datalogging...

    Yes, I am a noob... halp

    Hey guys, Just created my account and trying to figure this out.... Wanting to post a thread on my custom Arduino Tricopter build.... how do I go about doing that?? Thanks Charlie

    Arduino Cheap Madness

    I have a homemade plane made form recycled materials that uses a arduino to control it. Plane Specs 2200kv Brushless Motor(7$), 20 AMP ESC (coming in the mail), A arduino nano(2$) with a 2.4ghz radio pair(6$) with a 2nd arduino Uno(3$) with a pc using serial monitor and HY-SPF05 (2$) with a...

    PWM to PPM conversion with Arduino

    I just saw this blog post this morning. It mentions that there are commercial solutions to do this. If you're into DIY, this could be fun to play with, though. I'm also thinking of the possibilities to do whatever you want to the signals in the process. What comes in via PWM doesn't have to be...

    A2212 Motor Cuts off

    Hello, I have three A2212 13T 1000Kv motor, three 30 amp HW ESC and a 2,200 20C 3s Venom battery pack. The flight controller board is an arduino. For some reason, when I run the motor, it goes all the way up to 50% throttle and cuts off an re-calibrates. I know this is not a problem with the...

    Programming a mini quadcopter receiver board

    I got this mini quadcopter which flies. But, I thought, I would program it to take some autonomous decision. Since, it has both gyro and 3 axis accelerometer built-in, it should be capable of auto correct few flight problems. It has an Atmega328p chip. Means there is possibility that I can...

    Robotic Arm!

    Hey all, I haven't been on the forums for a very long time, life has been kind of busy due to exams and other things getting in the way of RC. But now it's time to pick up the transmitter again. I say that, but I must apologize, as this post is not strictly RC related (although it could be in...

    RC Reading with arduino and pinchangeint libarary problem

    I am working on a project where I use an arduino uno in the loop with a rc receiver feeding information into it, then the uno is sending information into an APM 2.5 autopilot to control a drone. The first approach i was using involved code that used pulseIn to read the pwm from the receiver...

    PPM inputs on Turnigy 9X running ER9x.

    Okay, first off: I built a headtracker (link to the project on RCG) using an arduino that plugs into the trainer port and inputs the head movements (all 3 axis if I wish) to 3 different channels that I can choose (at input, choose PPM1-8). It works like a charm and I can trim it using the GUI...

    Help please! How to make to board know it's a tri not a quad, Multiwii

    Hey guys so this is my first build and I am basing it on Davids tricopter build. I got a Multiwii from hobby king and I am confused on how to make it so it knows it's a tri not a quad. I have the Multiwii GUI but I seems I need something else because there are no options in the software to...
