"Does anyone know if the connector type on the PixHawk Mini on 3DR's website is JST-SH 1.0? That is the connector type of the PixFalcon, which I believe is the predecessor to the Pixhawk Mini. I'm finding cables in the JST-SH 1.0 format to…"

Aerial Survey needed in NorCal

Sorry for the broadcast nature of this, but hoping I can connect with someone quickly on this. I am eventually hoping to have aerial contour survey capabilities on my ArduPlane-equipped MyTwinDream, and/or a to-be-built multi-rotor running ArduCopter. But too many other work and RC interests in the way at present.Is there someone out there within reasonable distance of Napa Valley California that would be able to fly a ~50 acre site and generate a reasonable contour survey? Good aerial imagery…See More

Kelly Foster replied to Stephan's discussion Mission Planner 1.3.39 Dataflash log auto analysis broken
"I have had problems for months trying to auto-analyze data flash logs on MP, to the point of giving up. I run Windows 7 on a 64 bit Sony VAIO. I tried again yesterday using latest ArduPlane and latest MP and it failed yet again. Short session,…"

Kelly Foster commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post Using X-Plane 10 with ArduPilot SITL
"Nice work Tridge and Michael.  I look forward to modeling some of my e-gliders in X-Plane for use in this new facility.  Tridge, how's the thermal performance of the 747?  ;-) Kelly"

"Looks very appealing to this ArduPlane noob who is just learning flash log analysis in MP.  Agree with James, it would be great if MP could be enhanced in this direction. Kelly"

Kelly Foster replied to Scott Pritchett's discussion Does anyone have a Dashware profile/tool for APM:Copter or APM:Plane?
"Thanks to all who laid out the necessary bread crumbs here for me to find my way through this today.  I was able to install python, run the conversion script, install and configure Dashware, and get a basic overlay working.  Anyone know of…"

Kelly Foster commented on Marco Robustini's blog post Endurance tests with "APM:Plane": over 3 hours archived with "Mini Talon"
"Congrats Marco.  Would you tell us a bit about your RC link, telemetry gear, and FPV gear?   Also, do you track or graph mAH per kM as a measure of efficiency?  Or perhaps mAH per minute if it's not about distance so much as…"
