Oh man, that is pretty Christof, the powerdistro ring is a great idea with the detachable arm connectors. Hope that Paul and Jussi one day would offer such detachable arm connectors for those that didn't enter the 3d printing era :)
Great job!!

Christoff:

very well done!!. I like the idea of full modularity of the arms. It´s plenty of advantages for building, mounting, transport, reparation, etc, etc.

Congratullation.

Menno,

Viacopter is already working on a similar concept. But we cant stand extrusion printing so we did an integrtated solution with quicklocks and pcb instead...;-)

Hi Jussi

Would be nice to see some screenshots of your concept.

Cheers

Re: New Octo build - Hexa experimental platform

Sorry that I stopped posting on the progress. Yes, The build was finished 3 weeks ago and I crashed the new bird due to a compile and combination of untested components.

I decided to assemble a test hexa, sturdy, and with easy accessible component locations.
Today I made a successful maiden with R340.

I am not familiar yet with the new scaling in logviewer.
What are the upper/lower limits for the mots since its not PWM anymore.
What are the healty ranges and limits for MOT_PITCH, MOT_ROLL, MOT_YAW
I would need some input here.

The MSG.LOG seems to note some wrong info.

Set new reference heading for Heading-Free mode
Armed -> correct
Altitude Hold engaged
Home position set
Position Hold engaged -> I understand, that first PH has to be set.
Altitude Hold engaged -> here I just switched to manual. Guess thats not correct. Should it not read "manual"
Position Hold engaged -> missing switch back to manual

All parts are here (for the PCB's thanks to Joerg aka aBUGSworstnightmare) and I started the assembly of the new power dist. I decided to skip the PWM wiring and go with CAN only.
