@ shyam

the error report is a microsoft message nothing to do with the developers of MP

install the current msi from the download page it will fix your issue, the beta updates inside MP seem to be (up till last night) cause the crash at startup

@shyam Yup so i installed 1.2 something let it upgrade and it started but then on closing the program and restarting it failed again.. I am going to have to dig up 1.2.80 somewhere and just hold on the updates till someone fixes this problem.

Yes, Mission PLanner is crashing after version update to 1.2.80. 

It says send error report, I sent it. But not sure, if developers would have seen it.

@sherlockth I did reinstall same thing.. But I will remove it clean the registry in then install it.. I really hate glitchy software but this is the first issue I have ever had with mission planner.

Comment by Sherlockth on October 10, 2013 at 6:02am

Mine also, I had to reinstall.

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.
