My first fully automated drone flight with with the DJI iPad Ground Control Station… Didn’t go as planned. The iPad GCS app for iOS7 was just released, so I thought I would give it a try. Everything seemed to be working great I did an Attitude mode flight with my TX right before this to ensure the F450 was flying OK. Everything checked out. It had GPS satellite lock before takeoff and linked to the iPad GCS flawlessly. It took off on the “GO” command and flew part way through the flight plan before veering way of course and slamming itself into the ground….. sigh.
A quick look at the DJI A2 Flight Controller and Auto Pilot System. What comes in the box, and a quick bench assembly. The DJI A2 is a complete flight control system for multirotors in commercial and industrial aerial photography applications.
This is the most important upgrade you can do for your copters! Replace those terrible aluminum prop nuts with Aircraft grade Nylock nuts.
Now that you’ve watched the video, this upgrade is less than a dollar and could save you from some very expensive mishaps… go do it right now!
