ArduCopter (TBS Discovery Style)
Team-blacksheep have very nice frame for DJI-NAZA with some fancy PDB, but I don’t have NAZA and I wanted some modification to mount APM2/2.5, so here is my version of that frame, no fancy PDB and PCBs, just black fiberglass 🙂
APM2.0 with 90° pins fits under the top plate with analog and telemetry pins exposed.
APM2.5 with ublox GPS.
Set the LED_MODE parameter to 9, It will slow blink when disarmed, solid armed, fast blink + beep on low battery.
The CG and the APM location moved a little bit, but it can fly as regular X quad. (don’t pull back too much)
I just changed the AP_MotorsQuad.cpp X frame set-up to:
add_motor(AP_MOTORS_MOT_1, 55, AP_MOTORS_MATRIX_MOTOR_CCW, AP_MOTORS_MOT_2, 1);
add_motor(AP_MOTORS_MOT_2, -125, AP_MOTORS_MATRIX_MOTOR_CCW, AP_MOTORS_MOT_1, 3);
add_motor(AP_MOTORS_MOT_3, -55, AP_MOTORS_MATRIX_MOTOR_CW, AP_MOTORS_MOT_4, 4);
add_motor(AP_MOTORS_MOT_4, 125, AP_MOTORS_MATRIX_MOTOR_CW, AP_MOTORS_MOT_3, 2);
