I built a copter for a friend, who was out flying a mapping mission in auto. Just prior to the last waypoint the chute deployed. After reviewing the logs I cannot determine why the chute deployed. It…Continue

I've been doing a lot of mapping using mission planner to set up the lawnmower pattern over the subject area.  Things are going well, but most of these jobs need every bit of efficiency.  To that…Continue

I've been having pretty good success with mapping using the pixhawk and mission planner.  After figuring out how to get the shutter cycle time under a second (thanks mono), I'm now pursuing how to…Continue
