How come it's exactally the same file as the one i uploaded here then.

I'm deadly serious, I believe you've taken my prop adaptor files I kindly drew out and uploaded to here and you've posted them on thingiverse under your name.

There are measurements on those adaptors that I made up and those measurements are on those designs.

Still copied then, still my design, still no permission given, still no credit given.
Funny yours have same error mine did, same size angle mine did, same size flatter diameters mine did.
I'll let thingiverse decide, I'm never posting stls anywhere again.

As you said on pm it was my design you just copied and as you have offered via pm to remove from thingiverse that will be fine thank you.
You say you designed and drew it, at best you drew it but it's my design.

If it's removed it's matter over.

Hey, I have problems with my gps. I use the sp racing f3 and this nz gps:
https://www.ebay.de/itm/Super-Mini-NZ-GPS-with-LED-for-NAZE32-Flip32-6dof-10dof-best-for-QAV250-ZMR250/232287368499?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

I connected the wires like you and did the setup in inav like you, but gps is all time red in inav.
I changed RX and TX but same problem.
Any idea what can I do?
Thanks

I had the same when trying indoors. Is that what you do? In that case, go outside and try again. give it some time. Normally you should see in the GPS tab that the GPS is sending signals.

You're welcome. Good luck. I'm still flying mine for exercises.

Hey Folding.

Thanks for keeping the thread updated. Makes it a lot easier for us "noobs"... Anyways I am just about to start printing parts. I was wondering how far the document containing parts etc. is?

Also, do you have any suggestions for a flight controller which supports "automated" flight. I was thinking of getting a Pixhawk but it's a little expensive so I am looking at other options.

pixhawks are nice. Yuneec is also using those. But even with my SPRacing F3 and iNav on it, you can fly waypoints. I think other FCs also can do that. Here is a nice overview of different projects: https://blog.dronetrest.com/flight-controller-firmware/

Hey again Folding.

I've tried drawing/painting up a sketch showing the details of the wiring of this drone. As this is my first RC project I had a little difficulty finding out how to wire the different components. I was hoping you could answer some questions and clarify the wiring process.

How are the motors, StarF3S and FC connected to eachother? Did you supply power(battery) to the StarF3S and then 5V/GND to the SP F3?

Best regards.

Nice diagram and great that you are sharing it, @anonflem
I'm building the 4.1 Naza so not directly useful to me :-( however you've inspired me try to do something similar once I get mine wired (which will be some time since I'm still waiting for the flight controller to arrive).

hey @foldingLlama

How did you do the powerbetween the SP F3 and the StarF3S. Are you powering both boards individually or are you powering one trough the other?

best regards.
