Harry Courter replied to Dan's discussion dumped MIssion Planner for APMplanner2
"Dan, Read the Wiki on telemetry logs and dataflash logs.  Screen shots wont do it. The real experts may be able to help, IF you can attach the log files to your post."

Harry Courter replied to Dan's discussion dumped MIssion Planner for APMplanner2
"Dan, I'm not an expert, and I don't use Apmplanner2, however, these are my thoughts.  Since your motors spin up I'll put the esc issue aside for now. In Mission Planner RC calibration screen, you should see a full range of…"

Harry Courter replied to rrayden's discussion Video with Gimbal Shaky
"Rrayden, I also have a large homebuilt Y6 with a 2 axis gimble with the storm 32 board.  I still struggle with shake in the video. I don't think your shake is too bad.  To improve the shake I would not look at the storm 32 PID's…"

Harry Courter replied to Tom Moore's discussion Newbie asking for some Pixhawk help! in the group PIXHAWK
"Tom, I use Pixhawk for a multirotor, not a plane, however the messages you quote have appeared for me also. In my case these types of messages show up PRIOR to gpx fix and arming.  Once armed the messages settle down and go away. "

"Counterclockwise rotation results from more force from the props that rotate counterclockwise compared to the props that rotate clockwise.  Most of the time it comes from an upside down prop, but anything that reduces power from one motor can…"

"So tagging with mission planner just is not a realistic goal? and I should look for an outside method for geo tagging."

Harry Courter replied to Virgil's discussion Setting time on Pixhawk in the group PIXHAWK
"I have a problem with the time set by the pixhawk.  When performing the geo ref operation, it reports the cam trigger messages are different from my camera time by over an hour.  The camera time is correct, the time assigned to the cam…"

"Darrel: I have a similar issue, after a short survey grid mission I will have 30 pica and only 12 cam messages.  Telemetry logs show the locations of all 30 cam trigger locations but the log files don't come up with the geo ref data. A…"

Harry Courter replied to mark bellncula's discussion Battery Issue???
"I have a heavy drone (I should have listened to the good advice when I was planning my build) As such I need big batteries.  My battery education has been expensive.  One of your priority's needs to be preserving your battery.…"

Harry Courter replied to mark bellncula's discussion Battery Issue???
"I use mission planner rather than QGC. From my perspective your battery settings are not right. I would expect to see the following max cell voltage: 4.2 min cell voltage: 3.0 max discharge: 80%, after testing and verification you might go to 85%…"

Harry Courter replied to mark bellncula's discussion Battery Issue???
"Mark, Your battery charger should display the mAH added to the battery during charging.  If you keep a log of the energy added to the battery after each use then you will have an independent assessment of the energy used in each flight.…"
