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

Hi,

I printed all in PLA and it works as a charm! Watch out for the SP Racing F3 controller which is an old one. GPS nav for example is nog supported anymore on this board by many operating systems.

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.

Looks like you've copied my prop adaptors there :(

yep indeed he did ;-)
same solution, but OK.

these are my settings.Please watch out to leave min 6 satellites to get a fix!! this is mandatory to get a good position hold!!! I see you put in 5.

Thanks for the quick answer! My drone is affected to “toilet bowl effect” and I really don’t know why. I tried to recalibrate the compass multiple times but the problem persist. How and where did you fix your GPS on the drone??

I put it IN the nose of the drone. Quite similar to your placement, but in the drone, not on the drone.

what is a toilet bowl effect?

hey foldingllama, have you set pid correctly? what is your configuration?

Hi. didn't change anything to the PID. why?

Does NAV-POSHOLD works for you?

absolutely! right "out-of-the-box"

Hi Ronner,

Did you pair the receiver and transmitter?
When connected via USB, do you see the sliders of you sticks change in the receiver tab when moving the sticks?

Also remember that Cleanflight doesn't support GPS anymore for the SP F3. I have the same, and I switched to iNAV to be able to use the GPS.

Just figured out the failsafe doesn't work with FlySky --> it always turns off everything, no matter what you program, and so the drone crashed last Saturday...
Need to reprint the upper part and reassemble everything But in meanwhile I had about 15 flights going perfectly. I just touched the wrong switch last time, activating the failsafe when the drone was about 4m heigh, and so he fell down...  :'(

But OK --> that's why we have 3D printers  ;)

Did you used Betaflight? If so, how did you get it on the FC?

Iceman774, I used INAV. Tried Beteflight and Cleanflight, but they don't support the GPS anymore on my SPRacing F3 Deluxe. So I needed to change over to INAV. It's pretty similar.

Looks nice foldingllama!!
I'm currently printing all the parts for the mavic clone, and want to order the eletronic parts - could you maybe update your component list? Im new to the RC Community, i understand most of the things i need but dont trust in myself to place an ordner at banggood by myself :(

No prob. I will do that in the next days / weeks. I already wanted to do that for myself.

Ready to try the video feed (without OSD, nor motorised gimbal) one of the next days  ;)

Lama, from what I understand your correct, the advantage of plugging your camera through your fc at the moment is to configure/alter the settings of the camera through your transmitter.
You should however still get a picture I think.

To get osd you do need a separate osd board such as https://m.banggood.com/MICRO-MinimOSD-Minim-OSD-Mini-OSD-W-KV-Team-MOD-For-Naze32-Flight-Controller-p-990556.html?rmmds=search which can be run through your fc to add the additional osd.

Maybe you have to assign uart1 to be a video channel in inav or maybe toggle a switch, I'm sorry but I'm not sure why you're not getting a picture.

Kananga, no problem. I'll print an attachment part for my webcam and link it through the original Foxeer app. Will see if it works. Otherwise I'll do it over the vtx transmitter. As I can't have an OSD (for supplementary information on altitude, gps, battery status etc.), it doens't matter to get the image over wifi or the vtx. Just will need to see if the image quality is OK).

I need your help again... can't make sonar works. How did you connect it? Mine is an hcsr04

thanks in advance

BerniApple,

No problem. that's why the forum exists! I connected my sonar to IO_2; channel 5 and 6 + GND+ VCC.
You need a battery connected to power up the sonar.

did you use a resistor between channel 5 and the trigger?

No, not necessary. It works like this.

i really can't make it works... the sonar icon on iNAV is red. how did you active it on the "configuration" and "ports" tab

Did you activate the right range finder in the configuration (where you also select the barometer, gps etc.)?
I noticed the sonar is very fragile. I have one that was broken out of the box, one that worked, but broke during a landing (without the extension legs) and one that still works...
