Looks great....what flight controller, motors, esc , prop size did you use? Arm transition looks real smooth.

Two things :

One: when you say that you bypassed the arduino what do you mean? You did not use it for anything?

Two: those two wires in the leds does one of them come from the ESC signal cable?

Yes i skipped the arduino entirely, decided to go for the simple approach.
The two wires from the leds go directly to the positive and negative on the esc`s

How much flight time did you get?

very nice build :-) Wow.. you're building another, very nice.. 


I'm currently adding a gimbal to mine, should have all the parts done soon but final tweaking at the moment. I've also added a cartridge touchscreen resetter to my printer now :-) Makes it really easy to adjust the material and temps.

Tnx Steve.
Great job on the cartridge resetter looks awesome.
Are you willing to share te arduino code with me and the stl file for the housing?.
Thanks
Folkert

Thanks a lot Steve. I'm going to give it a try immediately.
I'll let you know how it works out.
Just one further question: did you use an arduino Nano or Uno?
Cheers,
Folkert

I used a uno, the touchscreen is a shield and plugs directly into it. You need to use pin 4 instead of pin 7 for the eeprom as the screen uses 7 so had to move it. If you search for 'Spfd5408' on ebay you will find the 2.4 inch touchscreen. :-) they are very cheap.

If you got the white screen then I presuming your touch screen driver is different. You will need to load the correct driver for this and maybe alter the touch points I put in. Once you get an image on the screen then you can like up the serial monitor and see the points you touch on screen and enter these in the corresponding places in the code. Try the default touchscreen examples that come with the arduino to start with. If these show an image then you should just be able to copy and paste the code over bar the screen driver start up bit.  Let me know how you get on and if some code works and I'll help as much as I can.

Hi Steve,

I finally managed to find the right touch screen drivers, so the screen seems to be working now. The graphic demo works, as does TFT paint. However, I have attempted to implement these new drivers in your programme code, but seem to run into an error somewhere.

This is probably because I don't know exactly where the driver code should be inserted into the code you provided me with.
I'm attaching my driver libraries. Could you take a look to see whether you can compile these with your code to see where things go wrong?
Thanks in advance for you (much needed :-) help.
Cheers, Folkert

Hi, sure not a problem. I'll have a go tonight. Can you send the working code you have, not fussed which one to CdRsKuLL @ gmail.com .

Shouldn't be that hard. I don't think the x and y of the touchscreen will match but this should be easy to fix by watching the serial monitor when you press the screen and just copy the figures across.
