Re: Rules and regulations for UAV

Interesting, the first part. The regulations in the second part were adopted by SAMAA directly from the AMA regs. The AMA have dropped the buddy box rule since then. i wonder if the SAMAA will follow suit, or actually do their own research on FPV and decide for themselves.

Re: Rules and regulations for UAV

Your source is not perhaps confusing his info with the recently submitted bill aiming to regulate UAV flight in Oregon and 4 other USA states?
I doubt anything would happen to FPV flyers in SA, as there are no laws prohibiting us to fly FPV.

Re: Search and Recover - the glider hunt

Hi Reynier, we haven't done the actual search yet. Things like unscheduled landings :nugget: , bad weather and other events prevented us from doing the search. I am aiming to try again this Saturday though. Weather looks good and my quad is working and ready...

Re: Finwing Penguin

It's flying very well. I'm very happy with it and done several flights so far. No funny quirks, it's almost too easy to fly!
Shipping from RMRC took about 10 days which is normal for EMS shipping. No damage at all, it is packed in a strong box with styrofoam supports.

Re: FPV workshop session in Durban

I'm sure there's an FPV-savvy guy in Joburg willing to do a workshop. It's really not that difficult, and I met some great people at the Durban workshop who I fly FPV with now. 8-)

Re: Atmega and KK controller boards

Kevin, there's also the KK2 board which is $29.99 but it's got an LCD screen for easy adjustments at the field. Plus some other nifty features. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__24723__Hobbyking_KK2_0_Multi_rotor_LCD_Flight_Control_Board.html http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/catalog...

Re: Micro FPV...small but so cool!

That looks like a neat little setup! Have you seen the FPV setup from RCModelReviews for the Ladybird? Here's his Youtube page:

Re: Tracking lost aircraft

I saw that as well. Apparently it is accurate to about 250m which might not be very useful if you crashed in a built-up area or somewhere with lots of trees, bushes or sugarcane!

Re: Alternative TX control technology

Most of the newer ones do. However, the limitation to 3 proportional channels seem to be in the converter unit that comes with that HK joystick. Maybe there's a way to mod it for more than 3.

Re: Alternative TX control technology

Just one problem I see. That one only have 3 proportional channels (throttle, aileron, elevator for instance). This is fine for a plane where you don't really NEED rudder, but on a multicopter you do need 4 proportional channels.
