Hi, my Dad has given me his old quadcopter project that he worked on years ago. He said he managed to get it up and do some GPS waypoints etc and then he lost interest.
I said I'd love to have a go at it and he duly dropped it off. I'll try to post an image of what I have, but AFAICT it's got a Crius AIOP, an Ublox GPS unit, FlySky FS-9RB and also a FlySky FS RM-002 TX.
Here are some images :-
As you can see, it's a bit jank with the wood and foam aesthetic... But if I can get it working I'll invest in a cheap frame etc to make it look better. For now, I just want to get it to fly.
I have ZERO experience in flying drones, apart from messing with someone else's tiny little thing. So, I really need some help here.
I can't even get the TX to bind to the RX to just get the rotors to spin or something.
So, please - can anyone help me just get a start with this. I really want to at least get it up in the air. Dad thinks I'll never be able to do it. Let's prove the old misery wrong!!
Hi just looking at the photo there is a wire plugged into the bind port it should not be there all the time it's just plugged in to bind , to bind you have what they call a bind loop which all that is servo plug with a loop of wire to the two outer pins when plugged in to bind port the receiver will flash it's light now you bind with the transmitter
I have several like that. Only thing, mine are tri copters. They still run on an old KK board from Hobbyking.Mine are about 30 inches prop to prop.Back when I ws decent at flying them , they were a blast. Very fast and manuveral.Made mine out of 3/4" pvc pipe for the arms.My tranny was a 6 channel flysky.
