Microbit Drone V2 (sent from July 2018)

Charge

Simple USB charger:

  • First plug the battery in the charger. The light on the charger will then light.
  • Then plug the charger in USB outlets (preferably mobile charger or battery bank)
  • The light goes out when it is fully charged after 1-2 hours.

Preparation

  • Mount the battery under the fastener on the underside so that it is placed as much as possible in the middle.
  • Turn on the transmitter (hand control or similar)
  • Connect the battery on the white plug under the drone
  • Wait three quick beeps right after another before the drone is ready
  • Place the drone with "nose" same way as yourself (see illustration further down)
  • Forward, the "regular" reader direction on Microbit corresponds to. In addition, white propellers will indicate forward, while black propellers will be at the back.

Flight

  • Active the drone (reinforcement) by clicking A and B at the same time on the hand control. The propellers start to spin gently. You will see that the speed is affected by the movements of the hand control
  • Click B a few times until the drone starts to climb gently
  • Click A to reduce the collective speed of the engines
  • Find the point where the drone just has enough throttle to stay some lunde at the same height. Then increase and slow down by A and B by what fits.
  • Change the angle of the remote control to change the drone's angle. Turn the control the road you want the drone to fly.
  • To land, click A until the drone is down on the ground then click A + B to turn off the engines again.
  • Emergency Landing: If you lose control of the drone, you can shake the control (shake) to stope the engines.

Place you the same way as micro: Bit for best control while flying.

Remote Control / Display

    Variables

    The most important variables in the hand control are:

    Forward and backwards. We get outinput.rotation(Rotation.pitch) from the Accelerometer, which gives us the angle.

    • 0 degrees is neutral when control is horizontal
    • From -1 to -45 the drone flies backwards
    • From 1 to 45, the drone is flying forward

    Almost the same as pitch, just that here is the direction right and left.

    • Positive angle takes the drone to the right,
    • Negative angle turns to the left.

    This causes the drone to rotate sideways to the right or left. High numbers rotate faster. Maximum values ​​are -90 to 90. 0 means no rotation. To use YAW, place the thumb between P0 and P1 to rotate to the left, and between P1 and P2 to rotate to the right. A weak, harmless current of 3 volts is guided through the skin from PIN 1 and measured in P0 and P2.

    Throttle

    Common engine power on all engines - increases or decreases the height. Stated as a percentage.

    • When the value is 0%and arm is set to 1, the engines go on idle and the drone stays on the ground.
    • To climb, Throttle must be above a given point, which is around 50-60%
    • Between 0 and about 50 the drone will be lowered or staying on the ground
    • About 50 will the drone stay at a steady height
    • 100 is maximum speed.

    Arm (reinforcement), or activation, is a safety barrier that is normally set to 0. For the drone to fly, this value must be 1.

    Flight Mode: This should be set to 1 as standard.

    • 0: Acro Mode, the drone can loop (experimental, tested, is not recommended at this time)
    • 1: Stabilise mode (standard, drone stabilizes itself horizontal)
    • 2: Navigation Mode (Self navigation) Functionality is scheduled
    • 3: Calibration Mode: Useful feature that calibrates the drone's Accelometer.

    Set this value to 1 to make a beeping sound from the drone's buzzer (speaker).

    Remember to put it back to 0 again so that it does not beep constant. The buzzer is used to alert empty battery on the drone.
