Hi all from Portland Oregon, I have a quad I have put together with the HKPilot micro APM and was having good success at tuning in the, stable flight, altHold, loiter etc............... then did an update or something and now it doesnt see my GPS and the GPS gets very warm.

I am wondering if someone can point me to a group/forum for this FC from HK.

One of my issues is that I am an electronics technician of 30 years and have been playing in the nerd/geek world forever (basic stamp, pic...) and might be having the issue of not seeing the forest through the trees.

HELP!

I lost my OTG cable for the 3DR radio, so went to order 3 of them, another radio then went to check out and got this:

Does anyone know of a U.S. source that sells the cable and separate radios? I need them right away.

Thanks.

Has anyone made a pdf or some other printable version of the Arducopter/Arduplane manuals?  I would like to print a manual for reference, or at the very least have an offline copy of it.  All my flights our out of cell coverage.  And when my laptop is running Mission Planner, I don't want to be switching back and forth between it and a browser.

Screenshot%202015-04-10%2012.49.42.pngHello everybody,

few days ago I've downloaded the "Mission Planner" update. After that, when I plan a new mission and set up new waypoint with the "green" selction button (please see the screenshot eclosed), the waypoint is automatically positioned in a so far location distance. Anybody knows the reason why? Many Thanks

I have a 2013 3drobotics quad I would like to mount a gimbal, does anyone have a simple mount process. I would like to use a canon 260 for video

@ Doug

I have not tried sonar / LIDAR yet.  That all seems to be a grey area ... I have a feeling the devs are deep in some secluded room working on  these details as we speak. I am really interested how that optical flow works. I will be trying to land on a boat. If it's drifting around a bit can it see the boat move and stay with it? Seems like it should. Can't wait until these things are worked into the code.

@Richard, @Kennedy,

I curious if Sonar/LIDAR corrects altitude in Auto?  Has anyone tested to see if these sensors correct as you are flying over various terrains?

Comment by Richard Kennedy on March 3, 2015 at 6:14am

@Darrell

I think the devs are working on the ability to use known topography data for just such an instance but as of right now I think you have to do in manually like you are doing. Or you could use a sonar device like these. I'm not sure how well it works I never tried it myself. http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/common-optional-hardware/common-ra...

I'd like to do a fairly standard lawnmower pattern over an area of trees to do some mapping. There is quite a slope from one end to the other. I thought that I'd add extra way points and then adjust then increase the altitude as it goes up the hill so I have a fixed height over the trees. I just wanted to check that there isn't an easier way then this before I gave it a try. Any ideas on keeping the height relative to the sloping landscape rather than just a fixed value of the barometer? TIA
