James replied to JB's discussion OBC Medical Express 2016 Deliverable 2 in the group Outback Challenge
"A few more we found that were not on this list: ISAAC UAV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJy0M7MsZCo ASTRA AERO UAV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIS6_xrvVbM Team Rocketeers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XcvxzlF-4E Sydney RPAs:…"

James commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post APM:Plane 3.5.2 released
"@Tridge, That is very baffling. I can't think of any reason that option would have been set consciously. I guess we have to put that one down to user error. Sorry to send you on a wild goose chase looking for a bug that wasn't there. We…"

James commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post APM:Plane 3.5.2 released
"@Tridge Yes, that video is right, although it is hard to see due to the angle. At 0:21 the mode is changed from QStabilize to Auto and the plane starts accelerating of its own accord. That log contains just one attempt at the auto mission. If it is…"

James commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post APM:Plane 3.5.2 released
"@Andrew Tridgell We have been using the new quadplane code on our 8kg flying wing quadplane. We are running latest build. After a bit of tuning it controls the aircraft very well in QSTABILIZE, QHOVER, QLOITER, and QLAND. We are yet to try…"

James commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post APM:Plane 3.5.0 released
"Hi everyone, Appreciate all your work on QuadPlane. Is there any intention to implement a Copter style "guided mode" for controlling the Quadplane in Quad mode via Dronekit Python? Cheers."

James replied to Datta Groover's discussion Octocopters on the horizon
"What is the take off weight for your tarot? Would that build work with 4s batteries or would it be way underpowered?"

Tony Kenward replied to James's discussion Can I get more than 2 mavlink connections out of a Pixhawk in the group PIXHAWK
"ohhhh, OK H.  You got me.  I was actually going to use the 'Teensy' option for MavLink conversion into the FrSky SmartPort. No matter, we now all understand.  That's the point. James, yes, but bear in mind that the…"

Hugues replied to James's discussion Can I get more than 2 mavlink connections out of a Pixhawk in the group PIXHAWK
"@Tony, yes it will work, see further responses. It will also work using raw mavlink telemetry piped into a Frsky converter as described here: http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/amp-to-frsky-x8r-sport-converter"

James replied to Bill Kiskin's discussion Pixhawk ROI and camera tilt angle in the group PIXHAWK
"Copter will aim the camera accurately during ROI so long as you accurately match the PWM limits with the camera angle that those PWM's map to. For instance I had to change the PWM limits because My gimbal does not work well when pointed…"

James replied to James's discussion Can I get more than 2 mavlink connections out of a Pixhawk in the group PIXHAWK
"Ah I didn't realise channels other than 7/8 had OPT settings, that is fantastic. When my build was last stripped down I had a go at getting the RCPassThru working and had no success, ended up just leading servos straight to the…"

James replied to James's discussion Can I get more than 2 mavlink connections out of a Pixhawk in the group PIXHAWK
"Thanks Tony, Good to hear I can have more than 8 channels into the pixhawk and simultaneously have a few on the PWM pins. Very versatile, I was finding my 9x a little limiting. I have brought the bits and peices to make the FrSky telemetry work.…"

Chuk Rhodes replied to James's discussion Can I get more than 2 mavlink connections out of a Pixhawk in the group PIXHAWK
"The Y cable could be used on Telem1 for telemetry and OSD, leaving Telem2 for FrSky. Serial4 is non standard wiring, but I found it easy enough to pull pins from a spare cable and make one (keeping a header for Serial5/console). The MP "Full…"

Tony Kenward replied to James's discussion Can I get more than 2 mavlink connections out of a Pixhawk in the group PIXHAWK
"No, that won't work for what he is trying to do.  The protocol for that port with the 'y-cable' would have to share the FrSky protocol, as Randy has described. James, follow the wiki instructions:…"

"Or you could also simply use a Y cable on telem 1 or telem 2 "

Clifton Hipsher replied to James's discussion Can I get more than 2 mavlink connections out of a Pixhawk in the group PIXHAWK
"James, I looked at different monitor mounts, but I couldn't find one that would coexist with the phone mount. It does make the entire rig somewhat unwieldy, and having a strap around my neck was getting uncomfortable, so I got a Tarot…"

James replied to James's discussion Can I get more than 2 mavlink connections out of a Pixhawk in the group PIXHAWK
"Yes, I have the same mount. Not super impressed with it to be honest, it does the job but I want to get the evolution one so that i can take the monitor on and off easily and be able to adjust the angle easily. I just ordered a cheap phone mount…"
