Poolparty.at Video

August 9th, 2011

I did a short video for a friend of mine. The video was taken with a Hexakopter and a fixed GoPro HD was mounted directly under the LiPo Battery. Details about the party can be found on www.poolparty.at

Lumix DMC-TZ7 on Hexakopter

November 11th, 2010

Short test-flight with a Lumix DMC-TZ7 Camera mounted on a Hexakopter with the HighSight II camera mount.

The Nick Axis is very jittering because of the servo. A servo with a higher resolution or a gear (for example 3:1) would be a solution to reduce the “shaking” effect.

But no “wobbling” or “rolling shutter” effect 😉

No filter applied to the material. Check it out (available in 720p on Youtube HD):

3rd Outdoorflying in Zürich (13.06.2009)

June 18th, 2009

Hi MK-friends!

I attended the 3rd outdoorflying in Zürich and it was a lot of fun. Of course I had my digital video camera with me and now you can watch the whole day in a short 9 minute clip. Of course there are some scenes with the EPI-OSD hardware with the new C-OSD software from Cascade. A short clip with EPI-S (current measurement) is also included. It was really fun to meet some guys from the forum and to have “real” talks. And of course we had some sausages over the fire 😉 (The fire was heated by Mikrokopter(s))

To improve my Kopter for this event I finally found the time to mount the PET “Haube” onto the Kopter. Pictures will follow in the next days.

EPI-OSD (with C-OSD Software) + Camera

May 29th, 2009

Hi Guys!

Yeah, it’s summer and now I have time to continue my investigations in FPV-flying. Some weeks ago I had a little disaster and crashed my FlightCtrl and my NaviCtrl (shortcut in the connection cable).
So I had to order a new NaviCtrl immediatly. I had luck, the MK-GPS and EPI-OSD survived.

And now – my Kopter is back 😉 (better than ever *ggg*)

Ok, let’s get to the topic.

A lot of people asked me, how I mount the camera and the EPI-OSD on my Mikrokopter. Thats a little bit complicated to explain and so I took some pictures to show you how I did it.
Update – 30.05.09: Attention, if you want your C-OSD Version to work fully together with the NaviCtrl you have to connect the EPI-OSD to the debug port of you NaviCtrl!

Testing

I hope that I will have some time in the next weeks to do my first FPV Tests with video recording to post it here (maybe the weather is nice 😉

Mikrokopter with DUBwise V0.52

April 8th, 2009

Hi out there.

In the last days i tested the new version of DUBwise (Digital UFO Broadcasting with intelligent service equipment – coded by LiGi). The Kopter is connected via Bluetooth to the mobile device. In my case this was a Sony Ericsson W810i.

The actual Version has the possibility to adjust all Settings (like the MK-Tool) and nice features are the Graph indicator and the Cockpit which displays a virtual horizont.

It’s a amazing tool and supports a lot of mobile devices. Ligi is also updating and patching all night long to be in sync with the latest released Software from the Mikrokopter project itself (FlightCtrl, NaviCtrl)

The tool is also able to talk and tell you how full the Lipo is (Voltage). Other nice informations are the number of satellites, height over ground, heading, distance to home position and so on…

To see how the tool looks in action here is a short clip:

Details about the project you can find at  http://www.mikrokopter.de/ucwiki/en/DUBwise or http://www.ligi.de

Update 14.04.2009: Because some guys asked me how to install the application on their mobile phone, here is an instruction. For the installation you can use the “Installer” from LiGi (http://ligi-tec.blogspot.com/2009/03/dubwise-installer.html).
If you have no internet connection, the installer shows you which file you have to install for your specific device. The sources and binaries you can find here: http://svn.mikrokopter.de/mikrowebsvn/listing.php?repname=Projects&path=%2FDUBwise%2Ftags%2Fv0.52%2Fmisc%2F#_DUBwise_tags_v0.52_misc_

Onboardvideo with EPI-OSD

June 23rd, 2008

Nice weather at the weekend – so that’s the result.

A nice flight in my village (250 inhabitants). You can see our house, our garden, the small church beside our house. You can watch the video in fullscreen – it still looks very nice. – Enjoy


Pictures with details of the setup will follow…

GPS + Mikrokopter (III)

Hi there!

Here is a small video about the calibration of the MK3Mag and the position-hold feature of the NaviCtrl together with MKGPS1.

BL-Ctrl change of FETs

January 29th, 2008

A lot of people in the MikroKopter-Forum think, that it is difficult to change the FETs of the BL-Ctrl. But that isn’t so. All you need is a soldering iron with enough power. You can even use a “really brutal” 230V device without any regulation. Then you have to heat up the FET and remove it from the PCB.

To solder a new FET to the PCB, do the same in the other direction. Really simple – see my short movie:
