Here is my  configuration with all my current pids.  This is the 3DR quad with 880 motors.  Feel free to let me know if I need to change anything.

Bradley: Are you using the 2.5.3 code? The Alt Hold issue was with 2.5 but should have been resolved with 2.5.3

Comment by Bradley J Carr on March 30, 2012 at 4:09pm

Well I have had the second voyage with my 3DR quad with the 880 motors,  everything worked great.  I still need to try the failsafe but that will come when I get some of the other things tweaked right. 

1.Alt_hold-  it would be about 20 feet in the air and would drop to the ground before it would recover.  Didnt' hit the ground very hard. 

2. Loiter- Same thing as the Alt Hold except the range of it holding at the GPS location it was moving around alot about 20 feet each way. 

It flew like a champ though.  Thank you to everybody that has helped.

First flight today! My home made quad with APM1

Altitude of almost TWO INCHES. I was able to remain in flight for almost FIVE seconds. It was amazing :-)

I need to fix a few things, mount the propellers better and tie down all lose ends.

Soon... flight #2 and pictures or video

Yes, just click the icon in the MP and go through the setup process on the Configuration tab. No need to ever use the CLI.

Chris.

many thanks.... 

and Chris, one more doubt though Adam tried to clear for me, but if u could confirm, say i want to reload my APM2 with arudcopter codes, or if i have loaded AC2 and now i want to load codes for helicopter, is it good enough that on MP i just go over the whole process and it will take care of everything, or do i need to go to CLI to erase old codes or can i just erase old codes by the reset button on APM2. Cause i am really apprehensive about doing anything with CLI, i am not a very tech savvy guy and that too with software handling.... so for me MP is a more confident way to go. Can i just reload codes with MP without bothering about anything else....

Ramesh: that's no longer used.  What version of the code are you using? I haven't seen that "ACM" prompt for a long time. 

Comment by Ramesh Tahlan on March 28, 2012 at 11:32pm

Adam, 

in the screen attached the last line says, "move the slide switch and reset to fly" is the slide sw only on APM1 or does APM2 also have it, have tried to look for it on my APM2, but dont seem to find it ????
