HiI had a frightening occurrence today where my 250-sized pixhawk / 3.2 quad suddenly started behaving very erratically in loiter mode -- rapidly gaining altitude.After spending some time graphing…Continue

Scott Reid replied to Justin M's discussion I'm ready to drop 3DR, go with DJI in the group IRIS
"This analogy sums it up pretty nicely.  I bought a phantom 4 after about 4 years of building apm and pixhawk-based craft.   My main pixhawk craft hasn't left the shelf since I got the P4.   The HD video range of lightbridge is…"

Scott Reid replied to Kristopher Madrid's discussion What 3D Design software do you recommend for designing a drone and its parts?
"I switched from 123D to Designspark mechanical (also free) a while ago.   It has a few more features with managing components and versions, and seems a little better suited to 'engineering' type of projects than 123D. Screenshot below…"

"I suspect you will find the lack of a gyroscope and barometer to be a problem. Most full FCs these days are 10 axis."

Scott Reid commented on Eliot Rosenfield's blog post UAVs for the Construction Industry
"I feel like the need to hire a third party, just to operate an inexpensive, easy-to-use piece of equipment, only to meet a government regulation is currently preventing this from taking off. On another note, one could make the case that a…"

Scott Reid commented on Eliot Rosenfield's blog post UAVs for the Construction Industry
"Well done Eliot.  I know there's a lot more undocumented use going on in construction than people are willing to talk about publicly.   Construction folks are generally very risk and liability adverse when it comes to things like…"

"Thanks Eliot, confimed you can get through checkout without a cc number.    Mario, I don't think it would be appropriate to repost it here since it's certainly copyrighted but available free. I work in commercial construction and…"

"Eliot - I'd like to read this, but don't think I should need to provide a credit card number.   The site is requiring one even though the fee is $0.   Can you post another link or send me a copy directly? "

Scott Reid replied to Tim Henning's discussion APM drifting, help needed
"Tim - This log shows entering loiter mode only twice, the first time for about one second, and the second time for about 4.6 seconds.  It might be slightly more helpful if you can enable RCIN logging by changing your LOG_BITMASK value from 864…"

Scott Reid replied to Randy's discussion Copter-3.3 beta testing
"Paul do you possibly have something connected to (supplying power to) USB port on the pixhawk?   Battery failsafe won't trigger if the USB is connected. "

Scott Reid replied to Randy's discussion Copter-3.3 beta testing
"Well, three props were off the craft after the crash.   Two had broken posts on the prop adapter, and one was just removed from an intact post, spinner nut and prop on the ground nearby and undamaged.  Prop adapter post was not bent.…"

Scott Reid replied to Randy's discussion Copter-3.3 beta testing
"Thanks Rob.   I'm accepting at this point that a loose spinner nut was probably the culprit Scott'"

Scott Reid replied to Randy's discussion Copter-3.3 beta testing
"Thanks guys; I think the most likely explanation at this point is a loose spinner nut, not software. One of the props that was off after the crash had an intact adapter, spinner nut also intact but detached.  I initially attributed this to the…"

"Crash on rc4 - possible gyro issue? I'm posting this log here in case it's useful, as there's been some gyro issues mentioned in Rc4, and the logs here show an anomaly in IMU.GyrZ before anything else appeared to go wrong.   This…"
