Parrot AR Drone RC mod Spektrum DX6i radio transmitter



UPDATED
New video – 2015-11-18

**NOTE (2011-12-21), this mod has been superseded by the miru mod now. See my newer video. It’s a new mod that doesn’t use WiFi anymore. You can use your own RC transmitter but doesn’t require wifi. The arduino plugs directly into the drone’s USB socket. I reused the Yellow Jacket and flashed it with mirumod 0006. You don’t need a BEC anymore and you don’t have to edit the drone’s system files. It’s more simplified.

This mod will let you use a regular 2.4ghz transmitter with the Ar. Drone instead of the iPhone. It’s much more easy to fly. You can still use the iPhone or have video down-link if you choose to.

You’ll need:
Async Labs Arduino Yello Jacket
FTDI programming board
BEC 5V
receiver & transmitter

    There you go proving how little you know.
    The poor souls that get on those boats pay a lot to get where THEY WANT to go. In many many cases, they sail past a safe port time and time again in order to get where they want to go. Why stop at Christmas Island when you can have some of the most desirable beaches and waterfront in the world. After seeing and or being given a choice, not many would sail from there to the U.S ya dummy.
    Rent a clue you brainless waste of space. Get educated.

    Riiight. The boat people come for the education and great beaches. Not because you are the closest free nation to them. Oh no. They made up their mind to go to Australia based on some pamplets they sent off for, showing the wonderful waterfront properties. Otherwise they would have gone all the way around Africa to the USA. They stay because they don't want to go back to the crap-hole from which they came and because they can't afford to go elsewhere. Rent a clue.
