Hans Jakob Bosshard commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Adding 3DR radio telemetry to the Quanum Nova APM-powered copter
"Hi Jean-Louis, Just another question: I have seen your description on the CX-20. On my side I want to build an original APM 2.6 in my Walkera QR x350 Pro, as the Walkera flight controller is not a good choice. Do you where I can get an extension for…"

"Hi noel, I just received the ordered X 350 Pro via RCmaster. After the ordinary compass calibration I realize, that the GPS seems to have outages i.e.some time the sats nr is > 7 .. 8 (seen in the MP) and LED on the Quad and sudenly there are 0…"

"Hi Roberto, For me it's not quite clear if I can use the same special Arduino IDE as for the Ardupilot for the VR Brain Micro. When do you plan to sell the VRX AV250 frame for an experimental quad platform for which Price range? Thanks for your…"

Hans Jakob Bosshard replied to Jerry Normandin's discussion Has anyone configured APM 2.0 for the QuadPOD ?
"Quadpod with ArdupilotHi all, After some longer time to find the appropriate PID Parameters, I succeded to fly the Quadpod in a smotth manner with the APM 2 with the newest Firmware 3.1. Look at the short Youtube Video which shows a…"

"Wow, thanks for all of the help Hans. Can you tell me if you used the attached schematic to wire your storm drone or the other schematic? Also, did you use the "Power Module" that came with the APM? Thanks! "

"Hi Mike, I forgot to mention in my last comment that the used ESC type is also unclear for me. But they run without problems in Connection with the APM 2. Regards Hans Jakob"

"Hi Mike, At this stage with the actual PID params take off is ok. Manual control could be better (sometimes small oscillation in pitch and roll. Loiter could be better (to tune). Alt hold bad with oscillations in height (sonar range) of several…"

"Hi Mike, yes, I can give you some advice for installing the APM on the Storm drone. The PID tuning for the APM 2 is not yet optimum for manual control and alt hold. I hope for better results after the long winter period with knob tuning on the…"

"Hi Brian, Look at the QuadPod Kit from http://www.snelflight.co.uk/QuadPod.htm . I added a second platform to the QuadPod to have enough place for installing APM 2, XBee and GPS. I used the delivered Motors and ESCs for the rest. It flies with…"

Hi mate,


I work with radar and mm-wave communications.

Nice to meet you!

Great that is great to hear Hans.

At this point, could you send me some pictures of the wiring that you are using with the storm drone and APM? I am trying to figure out how to connect everything and if any additional wiring/components are needed outside of what the storm drone currently has. I am particularly interested in the ESC's and how to wire the APM for power. I have read the wiring instructions and I am unsure which type of ESC's the drone uses. I am fairly confident that I can use the wiring specification for a separate power board as shown in the Wiki instructions. Also can I use the original radio controller? I have the DEVO 7 controller that came with the original set up. 

Hopefully once it is up and running I can begin tuning as well. Further how well does the take off, way point, and landing work on the Storm Drone.

-Mike
