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

Still restarting mission after loss of signal in 3.1

It appears I am having an issue again where the mission is restarting the mission after a loss of signal even though the "continue mission" is checked.  When the Rx lost signal it should continue mission and not engage the failsafe programmable RTL switches.  Randy felt this was fixed in 3.1 but it appears there still may be an issue.The logs show that the mission was restarted after the preprogramed failsafe switches went to RTL although they should have been ignored in Auto.  Here is the old…See More

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?
