Only 19 left in stock of our second batch of PZ0420 600TVL Color Board Cams, the most popular FPV camera from SecurityCamera2000.com with a DIY filter kit included so you can run your camera and video transmitter off your 3S LiPo without needing a separate battery.
Includes diode to reduce voltage from 3S LiPo to the range required by the camera, and 105°C 303 µF capacitor and ferrite ring to make a filter to remove the interference lines from your motors and ESCs. Connect your V+ to the camera thru the diode to drop the voltage, and put the capacitor accross V+ and GND (the stripe on the cap and diode is the negative side). Wrap the V+ and GND power lines to your camera and transmitter through the ferrite coil at least 5 times. Check them out in our shop or click the pics to go to amazon.com's product page:

|Figure 1: Mission Planner waypoints and telemetry track after 3 spline circuits|
|Figure 2: Autopilot logged track after 3 spline circuits|
For this video I wanted a slightly more wild ride, so I increased my WPNAV_SPEED_DN to 250 cm/s, and WPNAV_SPEED_UP to 350 cm/s. I left WPNAV_SPEED at 500 cm/s for now, but will try increasing it later. Figure 2 shows the 3D track in Google Earth. If you reduce these UP/DN speed parameters you will get the same 3D track for these waypoints, but at the steep up and down locations SplineNav will reduce its travel speed along the 3D curve.
VideoI shot this SplineNav demonstration video with my ArduPhantom. The GoPro is mounted on a Hummer 2-axis brushless gimbal designed for DJI Phantom.
Source CodeHere's the source code for developers and brave testers to test and suggest fixes and improvements. There's a .PDE file and an .H file, both of which go in your ArduCopter 3.0 sketch folder:
Follow the directions in the SplineNav Readme to make the ArduCopter 3.0 code call SplineNav. Then compile with the special ArduPilot version of the Arduino IDE, and upload to your copter. Set your waypoints with Mission Planner, or with the channel 7 switch, and go test out SplineNav.
