"I bought a 3DRobotics APM 2.6 and it worked out of the box with a stock Turnigy 9X radio and receiver. The china clones don't always work. I have yet to find one that does out of the box. And I've had 3 and all 3 of them have different…"

"I think I have this sorted on the APM 2.6.The 9X8Cv2 receivers (I tested three) cut OFF the ppm servo signal on channel 3 (and others but not all). Later APM ppm encoders detect that as a fail and set the throttle output to 900uS (as seen in…"

"If you really want to change in the MP, look under the advance parameter list. Each channel has a number of options, one will reverse the channel. I don't have access to MP at the moment, but I believe you change the a value from 0 to 1 to…"

The end of drones in Belgium?

Posted on September 7, 2012 at 2:00pm 12 Comments
