Good afternoon,New to Arducopters, playing with robotics, auotmation etc as a hobby but the copters looks great. I know some electronics and programming, not bad with my hands.I like to purchase a…Continue
"Building the cable is not probs to me, but I'd prefer not to have to cut and resolder the 3.3 & 5V headers (I'm reluctant to open my brand new 2.5+ case full stop!) - am I just going to have to bite the bullet and do it?"
"What is your firmware? 2.9.1?
I'm using 2.8.1 and haven't had that problem but I'm thinking it may be a feature in 2.9.1. I'm going to install 2.9.1 shortly.
I assume you have done the radio calibration?
What TX are you using? I…"

Try this, with the props off.
Connect to mission planner.
Plug in the battery.
Mission planner should say something like disarmed.
Hold to the right or left in my case four seconds. Once armed then the…"

do you have a solution ??I have the same problem, i have a new APM2.5 with plastic housing,do i need a special shield to connect these further 3Pins MOSI, MISO,SCLK ?or where to connect to the board ?? will try to search on the other…"
"Interesting, I did the binding on mine not attached to anything. Great it is working now.
As for the ESC...I did the calibration about a dozen times until it got it to work.
May be just timing.
If you have trouble then do the manual calibration…"
"I used two motors/wheels from Parrallax with the HB25 motor controller.
I started using an Arduino mega but switching to APM.
Two 12 volt batteries and three sonar sensors.
About 18 inches or so long, 12 inches wide.
Three small motors to operate…"
"Could this setup with the GPS be considered as beacons? I was looking at beacons awhile back as a solution for myself. Cell towers but can't get the resolution then perhaps a number of small beacons using frequency, IR for example in my…"
