Apm 1.2.99 problem

I installed mission planner 1.2.99 on a new windows 8.1 computer and it seems to work ok, but on the Config/tuning screen I no longer have the "Advanced Parameter" list or the Full Parameter list. I haven't completely checked out the .99 version, but it connects and seems to work ok.See More

bblatter replied to Harley Engholm's discussion altitude hold

Harley Engholm replied to Harley Engholm's discussion Altitude hold
"The biggest issue I had, I found out, was that my quad was very overpowered. I went from a 3s 2200 battery to the much heavier 3s 5000 and the altitude hold became very stable. Because of the overpower situation I also am using a value of .9 on the…"
