In January 2014 we add to the PitLab.Shop offer motor mounting plates designed for boom blocks 12mm, 16mm and 21,5 + 22mm. It is available in category Accessories for multirotors.
Plates are made from 1,5mm thick black glass-epoxy laminate.It has protection slot for engine cables, protecting it against damage during impact at the end of the arm to the hard surface.
They have wholes for mount most popular engines in the class. If you found engine good for multirotors with not compatible mount please let me know, will modify the project.
Detailed data about sizes and weight are given in the product description in the shop:
In October appeared in PitLab.Shop module with combined GPS-GLONASS receiver and optional magnetometer. Module is very interesting for flying models because offer twice the number of satellites from GPS and GLONASS constellations. Bigger number of visible satellites means better position prediction. It is visible in smaller position noise and lower dilution of precision presented in VDOP and HDOP data.
Configuration of the module is identical as used to this time GPS modules. Different is protocol, because uses additional NMEA messages dedicated to GLONASS system. All our products (OSD, AP and APL) support GPS-GLONASS modules and it's protocol.
Like his earlier brother, the GPS-GLONNAS modules, has the ability to mount on the board of one of the three magnetometer chip: HMC5883, MAG3110 and MMC3140.
Since beginning the SkyAssitant was sold in a medium size box with manual, USB cable, flash drive. Box inside has a foam and full color sticker on top. This kind of package is OK, but has some disadvantages. Most important is high demand for manual work. Now I have some other project to process and have to limit labor-intensive tasks. Other disadvantage is size and cost of shipment. Variometer is light, but the USB cable makes package fit in the weight range "up to 350 g".
My proposition is to sold SkyAssistant variometer in smaller box, without USB cable (everybody have it), without flash drive (software can be downloaded from SkyAssistant website), without foam inside (simpler production) and full colour laser printed sticker (smaller cost).
To re-compensate smaller content can sell the variometer in price reduced by 10 Euro, so the end user price with the Eco packaging is 219 Euro. It can be ordered in PitLab.Shop.
Of course previous packaging set is still available.
On the picture below is comparison between both versions.
I call this package "Eco" because is economic and more ecologic. Since we are in EU structures, we have to pay fee for packaging placed on the market. Smaller package means smaller amount of rubbish to recycle and smaller amount of fuel consumed in transport.
