I am wary of starting another on the HK clone given the recent history... So guys, please let's keep this discussion to technicals. No politics....Anyways, I've been away from the office and did…Continue

"Guess it wasn't announced wide enough as I just stumbled upon the recent Alpha release of APM Planner 2.0 Mac http://ardupilot.com/downloads/?did=84"

"Since 868MHz is not on any of the PMR channels, what frequency is beacon mode transmitted at?"

"Thanks. Now is it Tx to Tx and Rx to Rx or Tx to Rx and Rx to TX as with the telemetry?"

MV Reddy replied to Oliver G.'s discussion Can APM be used for a glider?
"I'm using Throttle to Pitch Mix KFF_THR2PTCH (there is no servo or ESC connected to throttle header) in my aero-towed glider. Know it's just a rudimentary stop-gap method to maintain airspeed with elevator only. Look forward to 2.75"

"Thanks Tridge. Look forward to 2.75. Hope it has a disable throttle function with airspeed controlled solely by pitch/elevator."

MV Reddy replied to Shyam Balasubramanian's discussion APM 2.5 Pinout mapping.
"@Shyam, Thanks for the heads up. Do the TX and RX pads of UART0 and UART0/2 run on same tracks? I'd like to connect my RFD900 radio modem TX and RX to the UART0 headers instead of to the Hirose socket on Telemetry Port. Thanks"

MV Reddy replied to Attila Incze's discussion UART0/2 not emitting proper signal on APM2.5 brand new board
"Couldn't figure it out from the Eagle schematics so are the RX and TX of UART0 and UART0/2 the same? I'd like to connect RX and TX of my radio modem to the TX and RX headers of UART0 instead of via the Hirose socket on UART/2"
Oct 4, 2013
MV Reddy replied to Seppo's discussion RFD900 - New long range radio modem
"Can the RFD900 TX and RX be connected to the UART0 RX and TX headers on the APM 2.5 instead of via the 3DR telemetry cable to UART/0? As the radio modem chugs up to ~1 A peak at max power, I'm feeding it off its own BEC. "

"Good stuff Tridge. I'm in the Eastern Himalayas, valley airfield at 15,000 feet ASL. How about an option that allows of automatic selection of ARSPD_RATIO  based on barometer/altimeter readings? "

"Thanks again for the heads up. I have been playing with hill shading in LandSerf. The SRTM data sets I use are from http://www.viewfinderpanoramas.org/dem3.html which have "substantial input from ASTER GDEM data.""

Seems like development of unpowered fixed-wing thermal and slope soarers has taken a backseat after the initial enticements posted in other threads here:…
