I didn't see this posted so wanted to share. I got word that Emlid is nearing completion on the RPI3 Navio2 image and it should also fix the issues some of us had when running apt-upgrade. I didn't get an ETA but should be any time now! Can't wait to get my RPI3 hooked up and see how it works.
Thx for sharing Jon.
RPI3 should give us more juice to play with. I know Emlid is working hard to get everything working as stable as possible.
RCTimer 700 Spyder with Navio 2 & RPI3 takes flight! The maiden voyage was a success and exciting! ,
Here are some pics and a few build notes for the RCTimer 700
The 3D printed case is mounted with Kyosho Zeal gel, it's what I've used for Pixhawk on another build.
The Navio2 and RPI3 was a little loose in the case so used small foam pads on bottom of RPI to secure to bottom of 3D Case
Case is very close to top plate, used a small foam square under mounting stud so metal didn't touch pins on Navio2
Mounted GPS antenna under canopy and used copper tape to block interference and adhesive foam to secure. I have a layer of copper tape on bottom of antenna and another layer on top of the foam. I'm still getting a little interference registering in Mission Planner but seems to be working ok for now.
Downside to this setup is getting access to the HDMI and USB ports. USB is possible but pretty tight and found easiest to remove white plastic support (6 screws) and get to plugs. I may run some extensions at some point so more accessible.
Not feeling well today, so hopefully this is clear. I just wanted to get some kind of notes out with the video in case someone was curious.
