"Eli, it looks great. Many hours of effort and a great learning experience for a team. What more do you want...I trust it will fly to your expectations. As an experiment and proof of concept - great. The killer is in the cost as Gary pointed out,…"

Antonie Kruger replied to mark's discussion Brand new everything... just setup up and 3.1.3 and twitching on the maiden flight! in the group ArduCopter User Group
"Hi Mark, We need a bit more info, there can be various reasons for a twitch like that. 1. The transmitter is transmitting a spike on one of the channels. 2. Your receiver is generating a spike on one of the channels that was not transmitted by the…"

"Hi Fellas, yeah, I'm in - want one for my rover - slow enough to maintain RTK fix with L1 chip. Now I can take out my pie again. Just to be clear - the means of receiving the correction from the base is not on the board. An external UART radio…"

Antonie Kruger commented on Monroe Lee King Jr.'s group Learning to program the Ardupilot Mega
"Thanks, Randy. Would it take the NMEA strings at 5Hz as the binary or is 1Hz OK? RE dual sensors - how are these managed? Are they identical sensors as the on-board IMU's managed through the I2C port or would other sensors be considered?"

"Hi Ken, I made a comment that I'm in my second month waiting for some lipos for my rover - original purchase 03/03/14. I had a tracking number from day 2 after purchase. It was a FJ tracking number and I actually tracked the parcel as it moved…"

Antonie Kruger commented on Monroe Lee King Jr.'s group Learning to program the Ardupilot Mega
"Hi Guys, I have a question around the NMEA GPS input stream and the IMU sensor - I apologise if these have been covered, I cant find the answers I'm after. Firstly, there are many NMEA strings in the NMEA definition, it is not a single string…"

"Hi Khalid, I've been working with a FreeIMU V3 for some time trying to get a reasonable scaling on the sensor axis(using I eventually thought my IMU was faulty. I then downloaded MultiWII software and had a look at all the drivers…"

Antonie Kruger replied to Ken Gaines's discussion Hobby King Shipping SUCKS!!!
"Yeah, Goosie - youre a happy customer because it is worth waiting 2 to 3 months for a HK order than paying a 200 to 1000% mark-up on local hobby vendors. The HK guys have been subjected to new customs regulations on China side of things. This has…"

Antonie Kruger commented on Thomas J Coyle III's group ArduRover User Group
"@Thomas, That makes sense. Are there so many GPS issues to justify a second system for momentary failures or is it more for complete failure of one system in the airborne vehicles. This is an interesting subject since I've been working on…"

Antonie Kruger commented on Thomas J Coyle III's group ArduRover User Group
"@RoboBill&&Thomas, At risk of sounding brutal, I do not think this can be called a poor man's RTK. The receivers we use are L1 only. For a RTK solution you would require a L1&L2 +++ receiver with a fixed(normally) base transmitting…"
