Shhhh, it is the dark side of the code we are never to speak of.

 

Actually I didn't even know I posted, must be a bug in my Windows 7, fortunately Windows 8 is coming and will fix all bugs. :)

@Dean and Marooned.

I completely disagree!

I suspect there is something you are not telling us.

All this secrecy....

;-)

Dean, I generally agree.

Latest jDrones frame param files will be there too shortly but as we both are developers for ArduCopter we all try to keep them as close as possible to each others of out frames. On jD-Simplex frames you can use 3DR params as they are really similar of their weight and flying characteristics.

Ok, thanks Alan.

Randy we should have it out sometime this week.

Comment by Randy Brazeau on October 24, 2012 at 6:37pm

Good evening,

I don't see a 2.8.1 parameter file for the 3DR ArduCopter Quad-C in the download section. Is it available?

Thank you

@Altaf re how to use user_hooks,

    I've never personally used it but it looks like you should put your code into UserCode.pde and UserVariables.h.  I guess it depends very much on what you want but the userhook_50Hz function in UserCode.pde will be called at 50hz.  Just make sure it all completes within 5ms to ensure that you don't interfere with the main loop which runs at 100hz.

Hi!! how do we use the user_hook fast loop for the arducopter ??
