"@Jamie, I suspect that the modified motor is pulling the battery voltage down below the level that the PM will operate at causing the APM to brown out. I have seen a similar issue with the Pixhawk on my Slash Rover even when using a 5000mahr 7 cell…"

Ardu Rover drive motor not working. Brownout results from commands.

So, I pulled out the ole Ruckus last night and put the good ole APM on it again. I have everything plugged up and I go to test it. Did the radio calibration and went to see if everything was responding right. To my surprise, the steering works, but the motor acts like it is trying to turn, but won't and ends up browning out the APM. I checked all my modes and they are all "Manual". Naturally, I begin to trouble shoot. Steps as follows:Setup:Ruckus RC TruckDynamite Tazer 15T ESCFireball Modified…See More

DJI S800 and RCT F800 users BEWARE!

After having purchased a RC Timer F800, I found a problem nearly immediately during flight that I could not for the life of me get figured out... until now. Most crashes of the S800 and F800 that I have seen online, resulted from a motor going out, causing the copter to do some serious acrobatics to its death. Well, after experiencing a problem in which my F800 would randomly pitch to the same side every few seconds, I began to incestigate what the cause was. Originally, I was running APM.…See More

Jamie Glover replied to Jamie Glover's discussion Hex Pitches violently while in stabilize at random without user input
"Problem solved!!!  The problem lies within the design of the S800/F800. Because the arms are detachable, the connectors in which the pins on the arm contact the plate are soldered into the center plate. Those that have flown the S800 know that…"

Jamie Glover replied to Jamie Glover's discussion Hex Pitches violently while in stabilize at random without user input
"The pitch is always in the same direction. When I did the ground test it would start to decrease speed and sputter then stop for a split second and then start back to normal speed. This would repeat every 20 seconds or so. There is a log file…"

"Hello Jamie, My hex was doing the same (violent pitch forward without user input), so I moved my APM to my 100% working quadcopter. And since the Quad has been playing up as well. I moved the KK over to the hex, and the problem has gone away. I am…"

"so, I just changed out the rx/tx back to the borrowed one and this time, I am still having the pitch issue. It was not as violent this time, however I only allowed it to do it once and then landed immediately. Here is the log file with the Fly Sky"

Hex Pitches violently while in stabilize at random without user input to do so

So, Ive recently put APM on an RC Timer F800. The first few flights went very well. At the time, I was running a Futaba 8J. By the end of the first day, stabilize was spot on and the Hex was flying really well. On the second day of flight testing, I went out to try out Loiter. Stabilize was working great, but loiter would sent it into a hard bank and/or pitch from which I would recover. I decided to look at Magfield and saw that it was way above the recommended values. I moved the GPS onto a…See More

"Im using ArduPlane. I believe its version 2.78 on the APM and 1.3.0 as well as 1.3.1 on Mission Planner. I guess Ill try reloading my APM firmware as much as I'd hate to. My plane is flying like a dream and just as soon as I reload the firmware…"

Why you give up paparazzi ? Not user friendly?My question is How is APM performance ? Good enough for a UAV mapping, survey operation ?
