"Glad it worked out. I should have mentioned that one of the very first things I do when looking at any log is to filter for ERRs and see if there's anything going on. Sometimes I'm surprised to find things I had no idea were there."

"Tom, thank you so much...but teach me to fish :-) 1) how can you tell the radio lost signal?  Im looking at GPS > Alt, is that the right way or is there a better one? 2) how can you tell the distance? "

Tom Mahood replied to Edgar Scott's discussion Is there a way to tell if Tx loss signal initiated my RTL in the group ArduCopter User Group
"Yep, that was it. Between 1.5 to 2 minutes you had a radio failsafe three times, the first when you were about 2,260' from launch. It stayed in RTL until about 3.5 minutes when you switched it to PosHold."

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?
