We have replaced the cables to the sunshine sensor with a custom cable and still have issues.
Other possible issues causing problems are:
-Electromagnetic interference from the props/motors, sol: putting the sunshine sensor on a mast
-Inflight voltage drop, sol: 6 Volt, 3 Amp, 15 watt BEC integration into UAV power supply
-Weak connections at Micro USB ports, sol: Soldering to the pins, using https://www.conrad.com/ce/en/product/065293/Electrical-contact-cleaner--------KF----F2-Special-contacts----1001 solution, or some caulking product to fasten the micro usb’s in place. Hi frequency vibrations caused by motors could cause these random power losses. By using a sponge to encase the cable wherever it’s secured to the drone could improve this.
-Use custom cables that aren’t stiff so that vibrations aren’t as aggressive
-Overheating from limited airflow, sol: use thermal paste and channel the heat effectively for your platform
These are all just shots in the dark though. I have a feeling this is a bigger issue then all of these.
These cameras work fine with our ebee’s it’s only now that we are integrating on non-parrot UAV systems that we are experiencing these difficulties.
Any further luck on your end?
