Michael replied to Todd's discussion Gimbal Glitch
"Sounds like you need to adjust the PID settings.  Try lowering the P setting on the axis that it is twitching on.  So if it is twitching to the left and right try lower the P on the Roll PID.  If its twitching up and down try pitch P.…"

Michael replied to Tony Kenward's discussion new APM flavor released: APM Mini Pro
"I prefer the "APM Pro" over the "Mini APM 3.1" because the cables are more easily modified and if the wires break on the mini APM 3.1 plugs then you need to replace the entire plug which can be very hard to find the right one…"
