"So all DHL really succeeded in doing was secure a corridor ofairspace and put out a splashy headline saying me too? On another note will electric powered UAV's be all weather capable? My motors never liked moisture."

"It's not a new law per say, it's a new defined definition of what the FAA deems "line of vision". The current regs which will be used to enforce are listed in the last page."

Hi Brent,

Yes, I'm currently using apc220 pairs for both Ardupilot Mission Planner and a hardware-based GCS at 19200Kbps with success. Where are you stuck? If you can get the PC to recognize and configure the modems, we should be able to get your link up and running.

Let me know what's up,

John

Hi Brent,

Yes, please do set both serial and RF to 19200. Also, in APM_Config.h , add the line #define SERIAL3_BAUD 19200

Give that a shot and let me know!

Good luck!

John
