Are all Flight Controllers and Remote Controls using the same protocol?

There are standard protocols, and then there are proprietary protocols. The choice of what protocol to use depends on many things. Without listing the precise set of flight controllers you are ...

Why do the motors of my quadcopter not deliver sufficient power?

If I'm understanding you correctly, you are saying that the motors spin, but they don't spin fast enough to generate enough thrust to get the drone off the ground. It sounds to me, if this is the ...

How do I interface with a drone?

With a conventional RC vehicle, I would probably suggest getting your own receiver-transmitter set (something like XBEE transceivers or similar) and completely gutting the original system, but with a ...

What RF transceivers modules are used on AUVs for communication with ground station?

I will mention that fresnel zone issues are no joke. When the zone is violated either by the ground plane, or other objects, the transmission will be severely attenuated. Note however that the shape ...

Robotics and Software defined radio

It is not clear what you are asking. Software-defined radio (SDR) as a concept essentially means that low-/physical-layer computational tasks like modulation/demodulation, error-correction coding, ...

Bluetooth Controls instead of R/C Controls for simple Holonomic robot

There are many ways to interface an Arduino to BT LE. There are many BT shields for the Arduino including the official one and Adafruit's. There are less expensive ones out there if you look. If you'...

Bluetooth Controls instead of R/C Controls for simple Holonomic robot

Converting this setup to use BT might be quite costly and time consuming. I would recommend to keep using RC for the manual input, but put your experimental code into the Arduino, this way you may use ...

Looking for cheap Xbox/playstation like remote controller for robots

What about using an inexpensive 2.4GHz RC transmitter? I already had one for a WLToys V222 quadcopter If you don't already have one, you can pick one up on ebay for \$5 to \$15. I opened up the ...

Why do the motors of my quadcopter not deliver sufficient power?

Either the battery levels are low or the flight controller hasn't been set up yet. First, calibrate the flight controller sensors. After, Calibrate the ESCs. (Do this without props!) Then set up the ...

Brushless motor from RC car won't spin with even small resistance

Sounds like a burnt (shorted) motor. If you are not able to inspect the ESC with an oscilloscope, try connecting every combination of the motor leades to each other and spin the motor by hand. If ...

Brushless motor from RC car won't spin with even small resistance

A couple of things to check: First, does the gear assembly work smoothly? If it doesn't, then the motor might have broken when attempting to work against too much resistance. Second, if you apply a ...
