Version 2.4 of the ArduCopter code is now available in the AP Mission Planner and in the downloads area. Although not as big a change as the 2.3 release, it still includes a respectable number of enhancements and bug fixes.
The default PIDs are optimized for a 3DR/Jdrones quad with 850 motors and 10" props. If you're using more powerful motors/props, start by turning down Rate Roll P in 25% steps.
Thanks go to the numerous contributors including users and their detailed bug reports, developers and testers. Hopefully all together this will add up to a nice smooth release!
As per usual, please post your comments, issues in this discussion. For enhancement requests for future versions, feel free to add them to the issues list. Note: you can "star" an issue to receive emails when someone comments on the item. On the dev side it helps us because we can get an idea as to which feature requests are the most popular by sorting by the number of people how have starred each issue.
Hey Marco...so you think this yaw issue maybe related to the MP vs GIT versions of the code?
I don't think, you compass is ok?
Yeah it's on, declination is set correctly...now that I check on MP...something very strange...I connect with MP on the HUD page...compass starts on N then I after 10-20 seconds it starts to drift in the exact same direction I saw physically until it reaches 190 deg S... very strange, any idea what's going on?
Try to disable and enable again the compass... make a full turn with your hands to your quads and tell me if you still do.
Here is ok (latest GIT).
Just tried that...compass off, compass on, declination, declination 1.45
still when I connect...it always starts at north and slowly creeps to south...compass stationary on my table and nothing metal or magnetic around it
i'll test with GIT code but it's 4am here :) so tomorrow...will let you know

Excelente, a qualidade de imagem é muito boa, apesar de poder ali amortecer um pouco as vibrações que estão a passar para a camara :) parabéns.
Agradeço o seu comentário. A questão que colocou é o assunto que ando agora a trabalhar para obter uma imagem com melhor qualidade.
Getting compile errors with current git version? (have pulled new version (and libraries) from git, I'm using 0022-relax or 0100-relax)
In file included from ArduCopter.cpp:93:
GCS.h:129: error: 'ParamToken' in class 'AP_Param' does not name a type
ArduCopter.cpp: In function 'void update_trig()':
Something I'm missing?
The AMP-2 has a MPU-6000 Digital six axis mems motion processor, It has 4 variable output sensor sensitivity settings i.e. +- 250 deg/sec going up to 2000 deg/sec and the Accel starts at +- 2g going up to 16 g.
So my question is this. When I receive my APM-2 does it come with a preset sensitivity setting? If so what is it?
How do I change it?
