Hi,This firmware modifies an ESC, so it can control a "brushless gimbal motor" using PPM (act like a servo).Modify the code controlling the gimbal outputs on VRBRAIN to support this?…Continue

I have been working on a new miniquad project where I did plan to use VRBrain controller, but now I must redesign it for the new VR Micro Brain :-)
I plan to use:
- 16mm carbon tubes (so I can mount ESC inside the tubes)
- 20A Slim Afro ESC
- SunnySky 2204s 2300Kv motors
- HQ Prop 6x3 Carbon Composit Props (some info on the motor/prop combo)
- VR Micro Brain :-) + GPS +…
Today I did the first test with my new CTX4 V2 (VRBrain 4.5 + external IMU)
Did some simple test in my garden + alt hold, loter and auto land - no probles, and wery stable.
My great VRBrain controller is running code from today (10.10.2013) (used Eclipse to pull and build the latest code from Emilie, that does an impressive…Continue
Almost done :-)
I do not use bullet connectors on the ESC to motor cables, so I connect the cables like this while testing.
First, I test if the rotation directions are correct, by connecting the “servo” cable to the throttle channel on my rx. If the rotation direction is wrong, I swap two of the three cables between ESC and motor.
My ESC`s are flashed with SimonK, so before I disconnect the RX, I calibrate the ESC. Disconnect LiPo,…Continue
To better test if the design is ok, I made a simple VRBRAIN cad model to mount in my frame.
I found that I had to do some changes to fit the controller.
In this image I have used 10mm spacers between the center plates - I may test other lengths -…Continue
