Rev4 of the BabyPDB is here! It can now deliver up to 5A continuous current and 20A peak! This new version features 2 BEC output pads allowing for easier soldering of two or more servos. The spacing between that pads has also been increased to make soldering simpler.
New, more powerful BabyPDB!
Almost December already? How the days fly by… If you are considering ordering something as a Christmas present, you probably want it to arrive before Christmas. The general shipping times that can be found via instructions in the FAQ does NOT apply to the holiday season, as all the shipping agents, and customs services, have so much larger volumes to handle during this time of the year. According to PostNord, parcels we send before December 6th (worldwide) are expected to be delivered before Christmas, parcels within Sweden a bit later than that. This is of course not a guarantee, but their general guideline. Unexpected and unusual things may, as always, delay delivery beyond reasonable expectations, but almost all orders shipped before December 6th should be there before Christmas.
For us to be able to ship your order before the 6th, you need to place it no later than December 5th, 9:00 AM, CET, and, as always, all items need to be in stock (orders containing backordered items will not be shipped until everything is in stock).
During the holidays, please note that in addition to the increased shipping times of the shipping agents, our processing time for orders and reply time for support tickets might also be longer than usual, as we will take a couple of days off.
Lets try a new firmware!
dRonin has a bunch of cool features like autotune and super simple radio setup. This version of dRonin has Triflight integrated, meaning that we can get a super locked in tail! Check it out in this thread for more info.
A big thanks to the users jihlein and Lauka. The latter is the creator of triflight for betaflight and jihlein the man that integrated it into dRonin + a bunch of other fixes and tricks. Also thanks to Kevin_Eric for the amazing amount of testing and feedback you have given in order to improve the firmware.
BLACK FRIDAY SALE!
Bicopter flight video
Excuse the audio. The stupid lav mic recorder flipped out. It’s really fun to fly.
The Kakute F4 V2 – The new Tri/Bicopter flight controller
We’ve been looking for a more powerful flight controller for a while now. Something with good features like a built-in OSD, soft-mounted gyro, faster processor, good amount of UART’s, enough ADC inputs and enough available pins capable of driving servos.
It’s a pretty tall order, but we did manage to find one; The Kakute F4 V2. It can do both Tricopter and Bicopter with some remapping of pins in betaflight and jihlein on the forums has already made the first test target for dRonin, an awesome firmware that is showing a lot of potential for both the Tricopter and Bicopter. More info regarding this will be posted soon. So keep an eye out!
We know we’re working on it
Seems like the looks of the site is a bit off. We’re working to fix it. The rest of the site works as it should.
Corrected F3FC Schematic for the Bicopter
I made an error with the Bicopter schematic in the build video. Please use this schematic instead to get proper function:
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Bicopter build video is now live!
Here is a step by step build/setup video of the RCExplorer Bicopter. I hope you’ll find it useful. Post a comment if you have any questions or if there is something I missed in there.
The Bicopter parts have arrived and the kits will ship out soon!
See the Bicopter and Baby Tricopter on Rotor Riot
While visiting FliteFest a couple of weeks back I met up with the Rotor Riot guys and shot an episode on the new Bicopter and good old Baby Tricopter. I wish I had more time to tune the Tricopter before the episode, but I think the episode turned out pretty good. What do you think?
