I tried a ROI mission test and all went well.  My gimbal tracked the target fairly well.  I think my camera pitch might be off a few degrees but I am very pleased.  A big THANK YOU to all the…Continue

Should we have a Category called APM 3.x for Traditional Helicopters at this point

"Also a number of autonomous test flights can be watched on youtube.  SWFDrones is the channel name.  Did a ROI that worked out very well as a test.  3.2.1 works very well once everything is set up properly."

"I have not tried simple mode.  I fly a 600 size Heli on 3.2.1.  Low head speed, spin blades, and a bit of weight with the various payloads.  You need to check your vibrations on the z axis to make sure they are not to high.  A…"

"All the new firmware is supported by Pixhawk.  Runs four times as fast as APM and has a lot more memory. Redundant IMU's etc.  Do some research on Ardupilot.org."
