I just ordered a APM 2.0 to put on my .46 trainer. Although I am concerned about vibrations being an issue with the IMU. Is this an issue at all? I have heard of using a sample Tempur-Pedic mattress…Continue

Hi to all, this is Fotos from my Piper
Hi Mark . Thank you for your response Have you try with the code with manual stabilize in recent versions of code. you stabilize once in work bench , and at the field you keep the plane stable during the start up and ardupilot mega setup ? or try to make a wood stand for field , useful also with car transferring .. :-) ( I make for my self one but after 2 first flight . Just to ensure that flight going well , and the stand is useful :-) ) I send a message to Mr R Lefebvre for Cub parameters .
Keep in touch ..
No progress I went to a smaller Super CUB, But no flights, I would always calibrate level with tail raised off ground so true flying altitude is set. As a tail dragger you need to do this until a parameter is created for this offset angle. Robert Lefebvre has the best Params for CUBs as he has flown his, Cherrs
Hi to all friends in NItro- Gas Group . I start to setup a Piper Cub CMPRO with 26cc gas engine ( in break in position at test bed) and a "Heart" of APM v1.4 ( code 2.68). I update with fotos soon as i finish my equipment attach . So i want to kindly ask if Mark fly his Piper, and if he have the parameters file to share with us . Archagel06 i saw your video and look very good responding from APM . What flight modes you try ?
I just Finished a few flights testing out Issues with vibration and haven't had anything terrible as far as results. I put rubber spacers from Lowe's in between the engine mount and the firewall. I also have a mount in work using 2 pieces of balsa separated by staggered felt and rubber washers and held together with nylon nuts and bolts. I will post my results in the next week or so, depending on weather allowance.
It is CMP model I got this one from HobbyKing USA store, $230 delivered to CO,
NitoPlanes has them for $199 & shiipping. Yellow Cubs available too.
How much did the ARF Model cost?
very nice! I love the drab green.
