ok so now I am stuck at getting the R7008sb to talk to PixHawk for my initial set-up.  Do I get a PPM encoder and use the 8 ports into PixHawk vai the encoder or is there another solution yet?

HI All
I am new to RC and need some help. I have had problems setting up my TX (Senior Moment).
Now using a EEPE file I got from friend that works. But some settings don't thats why i would
like to find a file that someone is using on their Hex.  Maybe they will share the file with me.
If it works for them it will for me as well with the equipment as i have.
Any and all help would be greatly be appreciated.

I recently had an issue where checking the reverse box [ in AMP Planner ] didn't reverse it as it should but if I did so in the full param list it did. 1 is normal  -1 is reverse.

Problems/issues drone quadricopter using 2.5 AMP last step "SETUP ALL IN ONE ESC"

I just finished calibrating the setup and installation of a drone quadricopter with APM 2.5. with Mission planner last version.

How do the tuning "all in one of the 4 esc" everything works perfect truttle and left control of movement.

But as I go back mode 'normal I have serious problems on the speed' minimum or zero drone quadricopter better with truttle a low position to zero.

anyone has any suggestion?

Thank you for vs time and congratulations to the whole community '

Bye Paul

PS ** I hope I have posted in the forum corrected the problem thanks again to all a good weekend;)

Hi all, I am starting a project where I want to add two pusher propellers to an X octocopter configuration.

I wonder if anybody can give me his opinion on the feasibility of doing this on Arducopter.

Just throwing this into the mix here and I apologize if it is not the correct forum gents, but there is little time left to take advantage of this great offering. I thought it my duty to bring to your attention this invention from a German group of engineers that may very well put to rest much of FAA worries about LOS/ FPV and Drones falling out of the sky. Check this out. I signed up for an "Early Bird" of this device called the AP Manager (by Gizmotec) that combines two FC's of your choice (their test set up uses two Pixhawk, but it can be any combo, mix or match) and even if both fail it will still control a multirotor or fixed wing craft via the onboard Rx.

Make sure that on the MP's radio calibration screen, the green bar for the pitch moves in the opposite direction to the physical stick on your transmitter.  If it moves the wrong way, fix it in the transmitter not by adjusting any arducopter parameters.
