What do you mean by “randomly”? Do you use low voltage alarm in cleanflight?22 April, 2016 at 15:47 in reply to: Starter FPV Tri for not-a-lot (but, more than I was hoping…) #28124
jimbo_wa, I believe the bootloader on these is SK one. Latest betaflight with the experimental BLHeliSuite can flash these, I’ve heard. But you can also flash these with arduino.
Terje, I’ve bought ET200R and it came damaged. It looks like they actually open up ET200s and reflash them. Metal cover on mine was shorting the cap on the bottom, so it was transmitting, but the video signal was not in there. It works well after I opened it up and closed properly. I currently use it on my mini. BTW, I got a refund from BG when I sent them the video of it transmitting white noise.
I also covered it in a plastic coating before closing it back, so it should be as waterproof as the rest of the electronics on my mini. (:
I’ve been thinking of that for a while and it looks like we need to disconnect tail throttle value from everything else. It makes sense to have less thrust in the tail when we’re WoT and lower angle and more angle and a bit more throttle when we’re almost at 0, but I can’t figure out how to calculate that yet. I’m still on 0.4 beta and it’s fine below 75% WoT, but then it makes me feel sick. I’ll update before my next flight and have a couple videos to compare.
I guess you need to do the tailtune, but I might be off on this one as I’ve never tried to set the V3(.5) on Triflight so far. I know, it sounds weird… I need to get working on it!11 April, 2016 at 19:53 in reply to: Starter FPV Tri for not-a-lot (but, more than I was hoping…) #27725
You can put the diagonal plate into the other two slots and have it looking upwards. That’s the way to mount an HD cam.
Well, so far I love my mini, but I’ve not yet tried new triflight on my V3. I guess it’s time! (:
Yeah, I agree on splitting idea. I was going to update the guide when I get back to my tri later this week, but now, as I see it being done by someone else, I will hopefully have more time to actually fly. (:
I found one0 here in Russia, haven’t seen anything like it before I moved back, found it in a local electronics store. You can try googling up something that is used to secure electronic components inside the device case by filling up that case. I’m more than sure there is something like it in the world.
Well, what Triflight does, is it calculates the servo angle based on your yaw stick position and then speeds up the motor to keep vertical thrust the same as if it was vertical.
So how exactly did you connect the feedback wire? What kind of values did you use on the voltage divider?31 March, 2016 at 02:56 in reply to: rc explorer naze32 board no response from bootloader #27417
There are multiple reasons why that might happen:
1. Windows drivers or linux permissions.
2. Problem with resetting the board over USB.
3. Wrong connection config (port + baud rate).
4. Hardware error
Only the 4-th one requires new board. Trying to short the boot pads and plugging the board while having flashing on connect enabled is your best chance.
+vbat to +buzzer means you would have vbat on all the +5v rail. With 4S that would definitely kill most of the sensors and processors on the boards, both naze and Rx. That would be very unfortunate.
I’m back from my get-away from Russian winter in Florida, had quite a practice there with its sunny and warm days. Here are a couple videos from there:
Unfortunately, it was not logistically wise to bring the tricopter with me (needs larger batteries and breaks on crashes more than Armattan F1-4B, unfortunately), so I was only using quads at that time. I’m still not at home and plan to be there in a week. Weather here in Russia got better for flying, so…
I will be back to testing in a week or two. Will take a look at the issue if it persists, but, unfortunately, I have no F3 boards or tricopters not from @David, so I’ll have to test bad configs on my mini trying to reproduce the problem, or just stare at the code, which I’m quite good at.

I guess your FC accelerometer picks up drift from vibrations. Balancing the motors and propellers is probably your best chance. Or just fly acro! (:
