Hi Guy's I had a crash today with my skywalker. It has never battered an eyelid at anything I have thrown at it and has flown many missions without a hiccup. Today I went for a fly at my usual haunt.…Continue

I am hoping someone with a bit of experience can help me. I installed the RCTimer C&V sensor and wired it up as per the Wiki. I went into mission planner and went into Configuration, Battery…Continue

"My experience is that I mounted an APM 2.5 on a 4 strokes 10cc plane (zlin 41 from HK), and stabilisation and return to launch worked at the first attempt. In other words, the default parameters work. Though, I had a bit of oscillation in altitude…"

"Thanks Andrew, Thanks for the info I will read up on them now.  I like the Hustler as its a bigger model and enough room for my hands and on top of that during the build I can plan all the wiring and other components for a really clean install."

"APM:Plane is not nearly as sensitive to vibration as APM:Copter is. Most of the development testing for APM:Plane releases is done on glow or gas motor planes. I fly with APM2 and PX4 boards on these planes with no special anti-vibration measures (I…"

Glow engines and the Ardupilot

Hi all, I am having some success with my Skywalker and would now like to build a Hustler as my next Er.......... FPV... we will call it. I want to use a glow motor most likely an OS 46 LA. I wanting to know if the vibration will cause any problems with the Ardupilot as well as the fuel changing the C of G in flight. I have many year of experience in aero modelling and can get the vibes down really low. I was thinking of using a product called Zeal which is a double sided tape to mount the…See More

"Hi eko, Motor thrust was checked as part of the trimming on the first few flights. Half throttle she cruised nice, low throttle it slowly started to loose altitude and full power she would climb. "

"Hi Andrian, Please check your motor thurst. I think it's important to make correct motor thrust on pusher airplane type. Fly in manual mode then full throttle, and notice if it has tendency nose dive.  I have similiar problem with SW1880,…"

"If you are using the APM Power Module to power the APM , and JP1 removed you wil not get brown outs. The bec from the ESC will power the servos independently from the APM."

"Hi Adrian, My mistake was that I was not separately powering my APM with a BEC or battery and I had a servo wig out on me. The lesson being that if you attach anything to the output rail it can and likely will sometime fail or draw too much…"
