Demonstration of a bi-camera long range FPV drone with tracker GPS – DJI NAZA F550

Demonstration of a bi-camera long range FPV drone with tracker GPS – DJI NAZA F550


In this video, I will show you the specificities of my drone. Which are, the two antennas for the long range video, the two cameras, here the secondary camera and the GoPro for the primary camera, The GPS tracker, useful if I loose the drone, the telemetry, to see the battery voltage, And depending of the wind, I might show you the failsafe of the radio where I made a small trick. I will start the drone. I am turning on the radio. Then I connect the two primary batteries. So here I have two batteries in parallel to have more capacity. A separate battery for the video transmission. I am turning on the GoPro. I am turning the GPS tracker on, just in case. Then I turn on the video reception device. We get the video on the computer as expected. We get the main camera and the secondary camera image, I’ll show you a demo during the flight. Take off… The drone weights 3,6kg. There is a lot of wind. As you might see, there is a lot of wind but the drone is still stable. Now I will show you the working of the two cameras. Here we have the view of the GoPro that I can move with the knob. Then the knob to move the secondary camera and the switch to see the secondary camera view are on the same channel. So let’s say I want to move the 2nd camera in this position, I activate the 2nd camera view with the switch. I can move the 2nd camera and so I can see the LED of the versatile unit. The switch allows me to go back to the primary view without turning the knob to zero. Because since they are on the same channel, if I turn the knob to zero, I see the GoPro. Now I’ll go further. Here you can see the main batteries voltage. For exemple if I go higher, I use more power and the voltage decreases. Now I stay above a field, around 500 meters from here. The video quality is not soo good, I could reach 2km during tests. So I let the drone stay there and I’ll show you the system with two antennas. You can see here the two LEDs saying which antenna is used for the reception.
I’ll try to put the patch in the direction of the drone. You can see that it was the spironet which was used and the system switch constantly between the two antennas. If I put my hand in front of the patch it’ll use the spironet, if I put my hand in front of the spironet it’ll use the patch. Even though the patch is oriented towards the drone, the spironet is mainly used so the patch is not really usefull. The drone is still above the field. I’ll call the GPS tracker to get the GPS position. The GPS tracker hung up, it’ll send me a sms with its position. I don’t have the WiFi so I won’t click on the google maps link. This is what the GPS tracker sends me, the battery level (of the tracker), a google maps link etc. Now I’ll get the drone back here. Difficult to get back with the wind… I’ll show you that I set the radio to, in case the signal is lost, the drone will stay at the same place but rotates so that I might get the signal back since the antennas are at the back of the drone.
It will rotate until it gets the signal back, then I can go back home. I’ll turn off the radio, and you will see the drone rotating but staying where it is (or quite because of the strong wind) I turn off the radio now. You see the drone rotating which allows me to try to get the signal back. I turn the radio on… And it stops rotating. Now I’ll land manually since there is too much wind to use the Naza’s failsafe You saw the remote’s failsafe. Here it is simply me controling the drone. -Note:The Naza’s failsafe allows the drone to land automatically at its take off point- Thank you for watching.

    Hello, 

    congratz on your drone, it's truly amazing !

    I also live in Belgium (1320), and I'm in the process of building a drone on my own. (started with the gaui 500X, now working on FPV and better GPS mode).
    Let me know if we can meet … I'd love to see your drone in action.
    2 tech questions:
     – can you tell us more about pros/cons of APM2.6 vs Naza-M family ? 
     – can you also tell us more about pros/cons of hexa vs quad frame with 8 rotors ?

    thanks,

    I'm not sure what the function is of 2 cameras on the copter…   the one is stationary and not HD capture quality from what we see.. and the Go Pro's camera mount is over engineered…  more for a DSLR type camera…  Has no Gimbal with  2 axis gyroscopic control…  Like the power of the Hex drone…   am building a Phantom 2 with some serious camera work capabilities..   all these cameras on quad and hex copters…  have no Zoom capabilities' remotely… or pan capabilities configured right with a 3 axis gimbal…   can keep one person pretty busy flying and doing camera work…  Most these stock transmitters only support like 9 channels…   Adding retractable landing gear, separate 3rd axis joystick control,  accessory down lighting, accent lights, landing lights… controlled switching means running a 2nd 9 channel transmitter… Pilot has enough on his hands trying to maneuver into positions and elevations …  Camera operator should be creating the shots not the pilot.  One really competent person could do it all incorporating GPS waypoints creating a path or patrol for the drone to follow allowing the pilot to do some camera work…  The final product will blow all the videos we have seen out of the water…

Pour cela j'aimerai savoir quelle est le materiel exacte que vous utiliser pour le vole en immersion . J'aimerai acheter le DJI PHANTOM 2 avec une go pro hero 3. Mais pour le FPV je ne mis connais pas donc pouvez vous me donner les référence ou un site sur le quelle je peux tout acheter directement. Quelle est le prix ? Jusqu'a combien de KM de distance pouvons nous voulez dans c'est condition ?

Now you have quadcopters, with bilt in lcd, on the radio transmiter, that records in an micro sd card, with good cameras like go pro, you just need the quadcopter, and the trasnmitter,you can link it to a computer too, and atached an android phone, to the transmitter to see, is position on the gps. all in your hand!!
