"Ugggg, your so right. I knew I shouldn't be here on an Iris topic.  What will really help is if I just get a Pixhawk :)  That link is really over my head but I do appreciate your attention to this.  For me the issue I had is now…"

"Hey Charles, some time ago my LED's quit working properly, and that may have been when I swapped out my APM to another machine and forgot to change the Led_Mode.  In any case I am trying to get it working properly again but in the latest…"

"Not sure I can help much more, but is your compass internal or external?  If external there are orientation adjustments for that too, under compass setup.  If you are just looking at the HUD in mission planner the roll axis normally does…"

"Thanks Chris, this was my understanding too, until I read Craigs post, perhaps he is referring to a previous firmware release.  I will search through the Full Parameter List again, but its a long list when I'm not exactly sure what…"

"I was so happy to find this post, now I can get into terminal again with APM :)  Well no this didn't work. Using the latest 3.2 RC14 and MP 1.3.10 I can not get into terminal even when connecting within 20s (or 10s or 5s). The reason…"

"There is a battery attached to the underside of the GPS board, inside the housing.  This battery should last many years and will not affect your position error anyway.  A dead battery will only affect satellite acquisition times (a lot).…"
