GPS Racer: worklog #2

I’m once again realizing, that doing multiple things at once is not a way to work. Something like that happened to my GPS Racer project. According do original plans, week ago I was only supposed to wait for FPV camera.

Instead of that, only yesterday I finished ESC and motor assembly. But OK, it was a little trickier than I expected originally:

  1. Since I wanted to reuse onboard current meter of Aitbot Omnibus F4 Pro and use Matek XT60 PDB at the same time, I had to do some creative wiring between XT60 plug and PDB. Instead of directly connecting XT60 plug to PDB, + first goes to current meter on Omnibus F4 Pro and then goes back to PDB. Not pretty, but works. I still have to design some kind for power plug holder, but this topic can wait. I still have no FPV camera
  2. I had some problems with ESCs. Not only I’ve destroyed Motor1 soldering pad, but failed to flash FVT Littlebee 30A with latest BLHelli. Bootloader survived, but BLHeli was gone. I have to connect ESC to other FC and then reflash. I wonder if it was hardware or software issue…

Right now, apart from FPV gear, FrSky receiver, GPS mount, SmartPort inverter and final assembly GPS Racer is few steps closer to being finished. With upcoming Easter, it should be functional in April. Can’t wait…
