I was doing some low and slow figure 8s with my 3DR quad in the park when suddenly it started a fast climbing turn, heading for points south, until it crash landed about 30 feet up in a tree:  …Continue

How I can get software version : 2.9.1 for APM 1.4. It is no longer supported.

Depends on your software version: 2.9.1 - yes, 3.0.1 - no.

All welcome. (:

Which command can i use in auto mission to have the arducopter face a certain direction flying between two waypoints, instead of the default which is facing the direction nbetween waypoints? Which parameter in the waypoint command or is it another command to use  ?

@tahines - there are two schools of thought here.  One, go conservative and get an AR.Parot or something like that and practice the difference in control.

Or two, buy a quad (x4), build it and learn that way.  It's fairly fool proof if you read the wiki, manuals, ask questions and TEST TEST TEST.

You will of course break things (props, motors, bend arms, etc) even if you are careful.

Considering you've been around RC before I would probably start with a X4.  That's what I did (making the jump from planes) and never looked back.

It really comes down to your budget, ability and confidence. (:

Happy to PM more if you're interested.

@tahines if you have no flying time with a multirotor do yourself a favor and get a cheap 40 dollar one to fly with for a few weeks before you even think about flying a arducopter.   If you are just concerned with a "hobby" type setup a quad would work fine. If you are looking to do something more ie bigger cam etc.. Hexa, Y6, X8 but it sounds like that's going to be overkill for you..

Thinking about buying a 3DRobotics Copter.  Don't know which one to get (X8, Y6, or X4) with FPV.  This will be my first copter.  I have been flying RC electric planes with small camera a while.  Ready to get a copter.  Anyone have any good/bad info on these units?  This is for hobby and aerial video/photography with a small camera or GoPro unit.  Any help would be useful.
