"Sound more like "brown out" issues.  Did you setup 'failsafe' should the receiver lost connection because if you did the plane should be able to RTH to base and loiter.  "Brown Out" condition happens when not…"

"Hi Nicholas, Did you ever receive an answer to this question? I am currently looking into putting a powerful wifi antenna and raspberry pi on my drone but I am worried about interference issues since my RC is also 2.4Ghz. Thank you."

"Thanks for the quick replies guys!  Yeah I've been using the Terrain following with the GTB, and wondered if we had Lidar support as I am flying quite low. If I can help in any way at all just give me a shout. Thanks again guys. Nick"

"@Nicholas, In the fixed wing code the rangefinder is only used for landing and for logging and ground station display. In the upcoming copter release the rangefinder can also be used for lidar based terrain following. Both the plane and copter code…"

"@Nick - I know that Tridge is the expert on ArduPlane and he has done lots of tests with the SF11/C laser rangefinder from LightWare. If you can't get a hold of him directly you can try the Ardupilot forum."

Control servos with python Scrip Help.

Hi Guys I´ve written a simple python script, which activates a particular RC output (RC5 in this case) to set a connected servo to a specific angle, waits 2 seconds then to another angle then repeats.Everything works perfectly in Manual mode.The servo connected to RC5 fires away as it should. However when in AUTO or STABILIZE mode, the Aileron and Elevator servos start moving as well and I can´t figure out why and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction.My code is below in…See More

"Hi John, nice! For some reason It´s triggering my rudder and aileron outputs as well in stabilized mode. In Manual It´s fine. Have tried looking for any mixed params but no luck. Any Ideas ?  Thanks."

"Hi Chad, I eventually re-calibtared everything including my RCTransmitter, and things improved a lot.  I'm guessing it had something to do with the RC channels."

3DR Radio Range, TX Power increase.

Hi Guys, Have been looking at best settings to give my default 3dr Radios a bit of a range boost. I have a pair of 433MHz and 915MHz radios with the default settings, and TX Power set to 11. My question is, will increaing the TX power increase range or performance in any way ?Have also been using python a script to log lat, long and alt out to a txt file, every 2 seconds. If I decrease the Air Speed to 48 or 32 dBm how would that reflect the current update rate data of the script ?Just trying…See More
