When the nose of my quad points south, the Planner (or copertGCS) say North. - all directions are good, but wrong.
The APM2 is mounted so that the SD card is in front left corner. - and GPS up, of course, do please don't ask that :)
it flies well, - but needless to say is useless to position hold, RTH.
how is this even possible ? - I recalibrated Compass, and also flew with learning on - does not help - the directions are good, but rotated 180degrees.
@Jacekheli: Very sorry to hear that. We did try to alert everyone to upgrade to 2.5.5 (which resolves the issue with the accel scaling in some boards, which may have been what you encountered), but perhaps you missed the announcement at the time. If you PM me, I can arrange for you to get a replacement APM 2 board at a developer's discount.
Ah. The ones made/sold in China are pirated and are of unknown quality and not supported.
All official APM 1s and 2s are made in the US (3D Robotics in San Diego and Sparkfun in Colorado) and only sold through those companies or authorized distributors (of which there are none in China).
Yeah, the Chinese pirates... But now I have no choice. I want to fly and take pictures and movies. Can not wait, the spring exploded now in Dalian and after long winter the desire is much more stronger.
Andke, I have the foamy dumpers and the box is mounted flexible as well. When I run those engines, on the graph has no hazard.
The discount being in China is not easy to use, so many custom duties... I will run the experiment with local producer.
Maybe the APM want to go the other way around the earth to get to the target ...?
yes, it's important to note, that this error is not reproducible on another APM2 shield - it's clearly caused by that magnetometer not working correctly. - other APM2 works fine.
