Auto missions not landing, jumping, or progressing on takeoff

I haven't seen anyone with a similar situation so far, but I have an SK-450 with an APM 2.5, and I'm having problems switching from "takeoff" to the rest of a mission and from the last waypoint to…Continue

Arducopter Fly-aways: A PSA

Started this discussion. Last reply by Thomas J Coyle III Dec 27, 2013. 8 Replies

I have seen recently a lot of threads about sudden fly-aways occurring on previously rock solid platforms, and I feel it necessary to share my experience. I have an SK-450 quad with Ardupilot 2.5+…Continue

AltHold Baro problems

Started this discussion. Last reply by Pablo Diaz Oct 31, 2013. 7 Replies

So, I have to assume there's some code that takes this into account, but I have a problem with the Barometer. I have an SK450 with an APM 2.5+ with 3.0.1. When I'm in alt hold and the copter is not…Continue

"@iw28: I have the Turnigy talon frame. It's a great frame, I absolutely love it, but this frame is a lot more ideal in the long run. The larger diameter arms make a really big difference, and attempting to put tall landing gear, or all your…"

"Regardless of whether or not the AMA actually has any lobbying power, it is very reassuring to know that we, as modelers, are not alone. I spoke to a representative from AUVSI, and from what I have heard, they are in agreeance with the AMA's…"

"@Monroe: It shouldn't be too hard. If you can acquire fairly accurate sonar sensors and use multiple points on your boat, you could triangulate the position of the sub in relation, and use that for navigation. For communication, I think a radio…"

Austin Suhler replied to Konstantin Sbitnev's discussion Y6 crashed in STAB
"I had an apm 1 that would suddenly have a hardware failure at almost exactly 3:15 from boot. The gyro would physically fail to work at exactly that time. It's possible to be a hardware issue. Keep me posted!"

Profile Information

About Me:
I am an 18 year old student studying Computer science and Computer Engineering at Christopher Newport University. I'm picking up the senior capstone project from last year, an Arducopter quadcopter, as well as working with an autonomous plane. I have over 9 years of RC experience, beginning with a 1/5 scale Great Planes Piper Cub balsa kit I started building when I was 9. Since then, I have built 2 more nitro models, a PT40 and a 2M wood powered glider, and my hanger includes 3 micro and ultra-micro planes, as well as an MCX2 and MX400 3D helicopters.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am currently just entering the field of UAV's, head first. I have been around computers all my life, and have a significant amount of programming and micro-controller experience. I currently am doing an unofficial project with Christopher Newport University using Arducopter and Arduplane, and hope to continue to aerial photography, and live video processing to identify objects of interest and investigate them autonomously. The options are limitless, and projects such as 3D mapping rooms using Xbox Kinect are possible.
