"Never mind Jani, I got it all figured out and set up. The details are a little vague but in reading through the pages of comments I found a post that said to load the Mav 1.4 version and I got it all to work as wanted. I just moved the LED contacts…"
I have yet another question. But first I got the board all wired up and working great, but I am working to make sure I have the lights set up right and am understanding what it is telling me. In the old 1.0 diagram you showed the LED…"
"Jani in your post you make this statement:
I want to get some clarification the last sentence. Does this mean we can use a secondary battery and it will only power the high voltage rail if we use a 2 pin cable. Here is a picture to make sure…"
"Hi there! Thanks for checking in. I haven't played with the ioboard much either. I was actually waiting for a replacement to come, which I got Monday. I will solder it up this weekend and let you know!"
"Nick, I've just been trying to work on a few things with my Hexa C over the past few weeks. Got a new APM which caused some issues with getting the bird ready to fly but I am working past these issues now, thankfully. I'm…"
"You can also consider simple mode. When you arm the quad it will stay oriented to the direction it initially is facing. If you push forward n the stick it goes forward, pull back on stick it comes back to its starting position, regardless of…"
"I just want to chime in that I have really grown to like 3.0.1 now that I have the tuning down, know how to read the logs and have gotten comfortable with the flight handling. I am by far no RC expert but I have now had 5 successful missions…"
"This is the TLog. The guru's need the log files which you can pull from your APM memory. The TLog is recorded by the mission planner.

"I know your intentions were not that, really the issue is the title of the blog post and the article. It should say "Mayor of small inconsequential town (in regards to drones) in Colorado has lapse in judgement"
"I believe If you look at the pictures the wire to the high power rail is coming from the front of the BEC, where the battery connects. Check out this picture from Canadadrones.com they caption says directly from the Lipo and they are connecting to…"
"Oh I am sure that Jani missed it. I asked the question in the friend request message and if you click to accept the request it doesn't show you the message. You only see it in the notification email. I didn't mean to imply that he…"

I've got the LUA shutter script working on my A495, and have written an Arduino sketch to control it and serve as an intermediary between the APM and the camera. I've been busy putting together the airframe, a Ritewing Zephyr II, and haven't had a chance to make a post here on my progress. I need to get back to working on the script to get more functionality now that the airframe is almost done. I'm going to set it up so that it will go into "review" mode after takeoff and before landing to retract the lens. I need to take a look at the current Planner to see what other Mavlink functions are now available. The last release I've downloaded, from a month or so ago, had some exciting camera options, and what looked like a function to automatically create a route based on the camera parameters and the amount of overlap is desired. I've got a servo setup for roll stabilization, and think that I might be able to use another free channel to send a PWM lens retract command to the arduino, which would then send a pulse to the camera to go into review mode. I've also been working with a Sony block camera, and looking at the currently available Mavlink commands in the APM firmware, it looks like they are maybe working on options for things like shutter speed, zoom, etc that could be implemented either through an arduino sending commands to a point-and-shoot with CHDK, or to send serial commands to a Sony block camera.
Anyway- I'll make a post in 3 or 4 days detailing my build and what I'm doing with aerial photography and photogrammetry...
Nick, I've just been trying to work on a few things with my Hexa C over the past few weeks. Got a new APM which caused some issues with getting the bird ready to fly but I am working past these issues now, thankfully. I'm trying to focus on getting my flight modes sorted out on my Spektrum DX7s and trying to better understand how to setup my failsafe's before putting her back in the air for the real testing.
I do still want to work out a guide for the IOBoard with you as soon as I get these other issues sorted.
How are things with you? Are you working on anything right now?
