Suddenly mission planner is crashing on startup with my win 7 laptop after latest update.  Anyone else?

Since APM 2.6 is sold without a compass, I would appreciate a list of what you can and what you cannot do with or without a compass.

Like without a compass, I have been flying on stabilized  and althold modes very comfortably.

But can I do loiter, can I do waypoints, can I fly in simple or super simple mode without a compass ? 

Thx

Parallel batteries Test

Comment by Bob Kirkpatrick on September 26, 2013 at 2:12am

I'm looking at batteries for my Std RTF X8. It comes with a 3500mAh 3S 30 and I'm wondering if I can use a 6000mAh 3S 25-50C to stretch flight time. eCalc seems to think it's in spec, but I'm wondering if the group here has any input.

Alware has its Swing 2 axis gimbal. Includes arch landing gear and the camera platform is (about) 4 x 3 inches. I use one on a F550 hex and can set the platform from horizontal to perpendicular with the pot knob on my Futaba 7C. It has about 120 degrees of movement in pitch axis -so it still stabilizes when facing forward or down. It can be bolted flat to the base of the airframe or on 1.25 in standoffs ( included). You can look at one on the Alware site and I think IntelligentUAS carries them too.

I have a flight mode switch set to Circle and was hoping to assign the radius to a dial on my TX.  This is a great feature for video for panaromic or circling a video target but it would be nice if you could control the radius from the TX when flying.  Currently I think the only way is to change the "Circle Radius" from the laptop connection.  If there is not a way, can maybe this be added to the Channel 7 or 8 assignment options?

 

Running ArduCopter 3.01 on 3DR's Y6 with Gopro 3 and Tarrot Gimbal.  Currently producing beautiful stable videos.....

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance ...
