"@Mark I designed it around my recently purchased Bixler 1.1 (That's the name according to HobbyKing order history).
I don't have a Bixler 2 available to measure the canopy so I'm not sure if it would fit."
"I designed up a part for mounting on a bixler as well! It is meant to be 3D printed. See here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:71336
I could print it for anyone if you don't have access to a printer."
"I still think I have a bad OilPan.
Attached is a picture of CLI test mode -> gyro. My values are just all over the place.
Moving the board shows no change in acceleration/gyro values.
Everything else seems to be working now after I got a new…"
"Well, after much digging I found that my ArduPilot Mega board itself had issues. So SparkFun sent me a new one and I got it hooked up but I’m still getting gyro and accel values all over the place, 0 for the raw output of the airpressure, and…"
"Oh, right. Sorry about that. Yes, they are pretty much within that range.
CLI: I did understand that much but it just doesn't seem to work. It only seems to actually go into the proper mode maybe 1 out of 10 times that I change the switch and…"
"I think my OilPan has issues.
I finally got the beta code loaded and CLI tests are saying that my gyro/accel output is all over the place (between 2000 and 4000 and each axis without me moving the board), and that my airpressure raw output is 0.…"
"Pretty sure it wasn't soldering errors as everything was working for quite some time. As I got thinking about it, my servo output died about the same time, and I found I had fried my MUX. Might have something to do with it. When I get a new MUX…"
"Figured it out. I’ll explain in case anybody else has these problems. Somehow the servo connector pins were no longer connected to the main ground plane. So I just added in a jumper from one of the servo ground pins to the input power pin…"
I was just reprogramming and doing some basic testing when I noticed if I unplugged the usb cable, nothing would work. I got digging and discovered that my oil pan was only getting about 1.0 V! I pulled off the oil pan and noticed that the…"
"Question from a new APM user:
Can commands be sent over telemetry? Such as can I send an CMD_AP_MODE over telemetry and everything will work (I would test it right now but I’m at school for the week)? Reason being that I only have a four…"
