Martin replied to Edgar Scott's discussion Suggestion: Motor Test/Setup Screen in the group ArduCopter User Group
"Actually, motor test could be more useful if it showed IMU vibration levels for each motor as you test them. May help users pinpoint an out of balance prop/motor combination before they experience IMU clipping in flight."

Suggestion: Motor Test/Setup Screen

Just a friendly suggestionI really like the Motor Test screen in clean flightI can test my motors individually, all at once, check motor directions and calibrate my esc.It's a great tool.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?

I have found it is better to always cut all but one power line from the escrow the hard way. I had some that said they were fine but fried everything including the esc. It was a mess that could have been avoided easily, besides you even save a tiny amount of weight taking out the 3 wires.

FLIR just added a new imager in the line up ten times less expensive than traditional thermal cameras.



Resolution is  80 × 60 active pixels so I guess its to low res for a pilot camera at night.  At least prices are coming down
