Hi Droners.  I've implemented V-tail mixing support in ArduPlane 2.68.  I chose 2.68 rather than 2.70 as I am not using the PX4 board.  Previously, if you were using a V-Tail model you have to use an…Continue

Hi Droners. I've been having a problem with RTL using ArduCopter 2.6 for a while. It's intermittent, but annoying and a bit worrisome. When I take off I always test RTL if I'm going to fly FPV. That…Continue

"Great work with the Vtail code. I just installed it and it seems to work well in manual mode and stable. Will the Vee-Tail patch work for the new 2.74 release? Can you also create a Vee-Tail Zip with the new 2.74 firmware? Thanks in advance, Rov "

"Hi Endrew, I think if you don't have, or you can eliminate interference in video (like using a filter), than the best way is to power bough sides from APM. But! And this is important! When you connect your video system, than don't…"

"Hi Mike.  Were you going into crow/butterfly with stabilize mode?  I encourage you to try it again, at least on the ground, and try it in MANUAL mode.  As I said, that's the work-around to this bug.  I wish we didn't…"

V-Tail Mixing in firmware

Hi Droners.  I've implemented V-tail mixing support in ArduPlane 2.68.  I chose 2.68 rather than 2.70 as I am not using the PX4 board.  Previously, if you were using a V-Tail model you have to use an external V-tail mixer.  If you've tried an external V-tail mixer you will know they can be laggy and sometimes unreliable.  Hence, I roll up a first pass of the V-tail firmware.  At present it's implemented as a couple of pre-processor directives that you set in APM_Config.h.  I'd like to make it…See More
