big quad plus LPS

Post by newcuriousstudent »

Hello!

How would a big quad deck connect drone (the frame of the big drone) be to work with the LPS system aswell?
I have a big drone that I want to fly with the crazyflie big deck and the LPS at the same time.
The big quad I am using has a few parts that are metal (specifically the Power Distribution board and the Motors).
Would those be an issue for the LPS system (if it would work)


Thanks in advance!

With some modifications to the BigQuad deck it is possible. Read about it in the wiki here.

Getting a good reception could be tricky and ultimately it should be free space around the loco deck antenna. We have tested it with just a 5-10mm of free space from e.g. the bottom if it and still worked but I suspect it will have some degraded performance. I think the only way to really know would be to test.
