"uble as before, but Pixhawk and more modern hardware can du EKF, EKF2 and much more logging, and have more sensors.  For really good safety , I would not fly APM just because of that."

Amulya Agarwal replied to Simone Chiaretta's discussion Pitch is reversed: where should I fix it?
"Hello! So, your copter was moving towards you in auto mode and you "reversed" the "pitch"? Actually I am having the same problems but I thought that I need to "reverse" the "roll". I have read that on…"

"Thankyou heaps for this. It fixed my issue aswell. My transmitter does not have reverse function when in multicopter mode so this was the fix i needed. "

McDanolds replied to Simone Chiaretta's discussion Pitch is reversed: where should I fix it?
"Thanks for the tip on going to the advanced parameters. It got my pixhawk working clean. The exact advanced parameter is RC2_REV. It has to be switched from 1 to -1 to reverse the channel for pitch. That is if channel 2 is still set to pitch in the…"

Gustavo Retuci Pinheiro replied to Simone Chiaretta's discussion Pitch is reversed: where should I fix it?
"As Rechard told you, the best way to change it is by reversing the stick orientation in the transmitter settings. If you change your wiring, you are gonna have much worse problem with other axis and it will be totally unstable."

The end of drones in Belgium?

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

Life is becoming pretty difficult for drones lover in Belgium: apparently the department of air transports in Belgium has either approved a new law or a new interpretation of an old one, which equiparates drones to any other RC aircraft: under that interpretation, drones can only take off from approved terrains, and can only go maximum 400m from the RC club, and must stay at more than 200m from any…
