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...

Alexa, could you provide me with the stl-file for the bigger top cover? Would need that too... Thanks!

Hi, they are already in the zip file but i attach them also here.
Top Back Huge Battery need Base Middle Split Part 2 Huge Battery.
Top Back Large Battery i think can be used with both this middle part and also the original from CDR

Thanks Alexa. I'll look at that tonight!

Alexa,

It worked! Thanks. I'll go out tomorrow and try to fly again, but with a fitting top cover this time ;-) .

so, need some help:
  • when i connect my foxeer cam directly to my eachine transmitter, I get an image / video on my smartphone
  • when I connect them over UART1 I don't
Any Idea why?

Both aparatus get enough voltage. So that is OK. I connect my cam to the RX-cable of UART 1 (the FC should get the image from my cam), and I connect the TX-cable to the transmitter (the transmitter should receive the video and then transmit it to my phone). I want this setup so I can have an OSD on my phone (so image / video with supplementary information).

So, why ain't it working? In the manual of the SP Racing F3 Deluxe the UART 1 port / headers are meant for OSD...

OK, So I fear my FC has no OSD on board. I bought this FC: https://www.banggood.com/Upgrade-NAZE32-F3-Flight-Controller-Acro-6-DOF-Deluxe-10-DOF-for-Multirotor-Racing-p-1010232.html?rmmds=myorder&ID=17&cur_warehouse=CN

Probably I need a mini OSD module or so...

maiden flight: up and flying!!!!!! jihaaaa  ;D
and all modes (angle, 3D poshold, angle+althold, sonar) work!! Flies like a marvel. Will try to reduce the video size this evening and post it, but in meanwhile a (bad quality) photo of the drone up in the air!

800 gr battery included.

just need to adapt the top cover. Now I secured the battery and didn't use the cover to test, but I would like to get an adapted cover. Anybody got the original file I could modify in SketchUp? Just need a few extra mm's ...

There's a few top cover remixes on site, this is the first one I came across I'll find some others if that's no good. http://diyrc.co.uk/mavic-build-diaries/mavic-build-baaz/15/ if you get stuck I'll draw it for you.

Saw it, but my battery is quite long whereas his is much smaller, but higher...

11
... and with the leg extensions.

Don't got the FPV to work at the moment, but I managed to get the battery voltage on my transmitter!!

12
I think I'll take off and fly one of the next days. Everything seems to work and fits. Ik just need a modified top cover as my battery is slightly bigger. I think something like Alexa's (http://diyrc.co.uk/mavic-build-diaries/mavic-f3-4-1-with-mods/), yet I don't think it would need to be that big...

But in meanwhile I can go testing by strapping the battery ;-)

Did you mean otg driver? Download an app called mscopes, if your phone does otg it will work.
Some phones need otg enabling but I don't know how to do that.

So not the fpv app from each one self?

15
LEDs are about to arrive.So I hope te be flying soon. Only problem is that the app for the FPV doesn't seem to run on my Motorola g4 (no UVC driver on that smartphone appearently). Moreover I can't get the OSD to work on iNav. SO posted that question on iNav Facebook.
But even without that, I hope to fly soon!
