I have updated my APM 2.5 board on my Quad with Arducopter 3.1 and after a few problems i had it flying great. I changed receivers to a Jeti receiver that outputs PPM and that seems to all check out…Continue
I went to update my Quad to Arducopter 3.1 which has an APM 2.5 using the latest mission planner tonight. When it was loading the cable moved from my computer and i received a message that the…Continue
I am starting to use my Jeti DS16 and would like to hook up my receiver using PPM rather than the old way of individual wires for each channel. Looking at the quick start guide there is reference to…Continue
"That is what i am hoping that it does tried it yesterday while flying in a gym and the sonar held altitude steady as a rock. Once it warms up a bit I will try it outside and see if it makes a difference when selected on or off."
I am trying to use Channel 8 to turn my sonar on and off when connected to the mission planner i can see that the switch does work. But the Sonar does not turn on and off when switched when testing it it works even when switched off.I thought that the function would work or am i missing something?See More
"I just started playing with that yesterday when the snow flakes started had to quit. Today i went back to a 3 cell battery and it was much better than the 4 cell.
Once i get the THR_MID set i think all will be good! Thanks for the input."
I have updated my APM 2.5 board on my Quad with Arducopter 3.1 and after a few problems i had it flying great.

In the mission planner when connected it shows for the switch position that the…See More
"All my power loss events have been when using deans connectors on my batteries. When connected i would move the battery wires and see the APM lose and then regain power. I changed to XT60 connectors and no longer have any problems.
You gotta remember the old saying "Measure twice, cut once". I did the same thing during the testing of my Maja drone when I bypassed the normal battery cables and incorrectly hooked a spare battery directly into the CC Phoenix ICE…"
"I just setup my Quad using the PM and i did not put the JP1 jumper in i left all the other connections in place as they were and the Quad performs fine. It real should say if using the PM do not use the JP1 jumper. I also tried it without…"
"I have one on my desk, but having trouble with the boot loader due to my PC having Win7x64, which, unfortunately is a known issue... will have to dig up an old system from the archives. Keep us posted on your progress"
"I have one of these going into a new custom build presently... as it's an advanced research platform it's got a lot of other bits to go into it before flight tests... but I'll report back in Jan/Feb as to our experiences with this FMU…"
