Benny Simonsen replied to Damo's discussion Bring arducopter higher than tallest structure in the world in the group ArduCopter User Group
"I did fly an Arducopter quite high once (~700m), but certainly not intentionally. See this link Icarus Hope you check the regulations before the attempt."

Randy replied to Benny Simonsen's discussion Crash during mission in the group ArduCopter User Group
"If you go to the mission planner's Advanced PArameters list you can see all parameters and their values.  The compass offsets appear as  COMPASS_OFS_X, Y and Z.  The inertial navigation offsets appear as INAV_ACORR_X, Y and…"

"Thanks Randy!. I will do some tests soon with proper damping/covering of ardupilot (i should have done it at first place, related problem is detailed here…"

"Usman,      Well done for diagnosing that the issue is the barometer.  There's no question that your baro readings (top graph) are jumping around by hundreds of meters.  Arducopter has no chance of being able to do…"

Usman Qayyum replied to Benny Simonsen's discussion Crash during mission in the group ArduCopter User Group
"Hello all,  I experienced the same problem while flying ardu-hexacopter (barometric sensor is very noisy while testing the altitude hold). I flew the first flight well but in the next flight (different time with battery and place change),…"

Benny Simonsen commented on Robert Krogh (hooks)'s blog post APM 2.5 from hobbyking
"+1 Eric (actually it deserves more than +1) Kevin you do find some really important issues and let us all be happy about that. Finding an error is in my world just as important as writing new code, but remember that the person who wrote the code (or…"

"Hi Markus, If you have the log files please post them so the developers have a better chance to hunt such a relatively rare error Thanks /Benny"

"Hi Albertino, No unfortunately not. Note it was on 2.8.1 I had the error. In Randy's post above he only looks on the baro spike, but the problem started before. You can see that the copter is not doing a sharp 90 deg right turn as it should,…"

Markus Järve replied to Benny Simonsen's discussion Crash during mission in the group ArduCopter User Group
"It sounds a lot like something that I have had. (ok auto mission and then next one that just goes bats...) Thou I had no problem with baro reading. Just yaw change and "random crash mode initated!""

Albertino dos Santos replied to Benny Simonsen's discussion Crash during mission in the group ArduCopter User Group
"Hi Benny Experienced the exact same thing a few days ago whilst flying a mission. After checking the logs and google earth files i saw a massive spike in the baro readings just when the quad fell out of the sky. Randy is assisting me with this but…"

Benny Simonsen replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter 2.9 released
"Ok not taking acc out of the loop, but use them as in 2.8.1 and not as they will be used in 2.9.2 /Benny"

Benny Simonsen replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter 2.9 released
"but remember a lot of us normally fly without telemetry. Why not just let the SW judge if vibration is acceptable for Z (later also X and Y) inav or the vibration is so bad that it should use the "old" but ok 2.8.1 approach. The user will…"

Benny Simonsen replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter 2.9 released
"+1 Stephen. I think that feature might be able to save a copter or two e.g. if the frame goes in resonance. It will also be easy for the user to judge if the vibration level is ok (you will have a flag in the log that will tell when and if the…"

Benny Simonsen replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter 2.9 released
"I know the over water problem, but if we have a battery failsafe I guess we will only have very limited time left and then gaining altitude seems wrong. If we "just" have a throttle failsafe situation I will agree that a Ch7 option could…"

Benny Simonsen replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter 2.9 released
"I don't know enough of the log and SW yet so Im guessing a bit here, but we have high roll and pitch in. I think we can make adjustment in RTL. Thats great when we have the copter in RTL and it's on it's way to hit a big tree on the…"

Profile Information

Please tell us a bit about your UAS interest
Started with a Parrot AR Drone, but got tired of lack of support for Android and Parrot's generel unwillingness to admit/solve problems etc.
I have now (oktober 12) switched to:
Arducopter Quad 1.0
ArduPilot Mega 2.5 with uBlox GPS
Spektrum DX8 Radio

FPV will be next, but for now just some flying and SW "checkout". Until now I'm very impressed.
