I have heard people say they have not seen any difference after adding the sonar.I got one hoping that it will assist in autopilot landing, making it not bounce after it lands etc.Continue

"In a DISCO there is virtually no airflow in the front as the TBS has the gimbal, GoPro, dampeners and pilot camera directly in the front so its pretty buried, but heres a pic. "

Positive press for Drones

Nick and I sent an email to our local station about how we are getting kids involved in building drones from LEGO Bricks.  We took our APM Mini based LEGO drone to the school field where our Makerspace class was going on that my wife helps teach.  I felt the press did a wonderful job on it.  Thanks to all the guys at DIY for helping making this possible and the guys @ Fox 13 in Tampa - brickdrones.comSee More

Edgar Scott commented on Gary Mortimer's blog post DJI to release mandatory firmware update
"Rui, you are correct, there is absolutely no requirement at all for a GPS to fly with DJI's NAZA based system(what the Phantom uses). In fact it works very well without one.  Simply unplug the GPS and it automatically goes into…"

Drone-University.com replied to Edgar Scott's discussion Questions before I try in the group Andropilot Users Group
"Is there any way to skip that throttle raising before doing goto ? I guess that by changing the parameter in MP to automatically turn slightly the props when arming, that should do the trick ? Could anyone confirm please ? Thank you"

"Ed, it looks like your battery is right next to the GPS and the power wires connecting battery are not twisted. I would try twisting those wires and moving the battery to the bottom of the craft away from the GPS and MAG."

Randy replied to Edgar Scott's discussion I can't get rid of my toilet bowl in the group ArduCopter User Group
"No, I don't think those offsets are too high.  A total length of >500 is where we have our pre-arm checks set now.  So this vector is 278 (i.e. sqrt(108^2+141^2+215^2)). What's more likely a problem is the COMPASS_ORIENT being…"

hey , so I abandoned the apm 2.6 on my disco, ive been using the naza and to be honest I havent looked back , I had real issues trying to tune my pids I spent weeks and hundreds of different levels and it was still way to unstable to fly I then swapped out the apm for the naza and still had problems untill I changed my esc and then it flew perfectly on stock settings no tweeks no tuning it just worked and because I was so tired of trying to the he apm going ive left it ina box for anorher project , the problem esc were the tbs bullet proof esc I don't know if it was the apm that messed them up but I csnt get them to work with the naza either ,as for placement of the apm 2.6 keep it as central as possible if you need to leave it on the top deck while your configuring it once you have it sorted relocate it down stairs , just keep it as close to the center of gravity as possible good luck

Thanks for the info, well one good thing another person is using the APM without issues here so hopefully he will have enough insight on any issues I have.   He does not use the stock ESCs so hope thats not an issue.  I will let you know, I had a NAZA before they added waypoints and yeah, they are amazing.  But I like all the extras with the APM although that gap is closing more and more.

Ed,

Now that I think of it you maybe should have cut the red wire to the ESCs on the data line?
