I've attached the log of a Pixhawk I have which came with my first drone.  It experienced a few crashes while I was very inexperienced.  After my last crash with this copter I began to suspect that…Continue

"Hi Robert, Thank you for giving me the link to the software, I had trouble navigating the website with my smaller laptop.  The terminal keeps crashing when I try to connect to the Pixhawk through a USB.  It will connect, but when it tries…"

"I too am getting 0 sonarrange and 0 sonarvolts after I've setup the SF11 using the arducopter documentation.  I'm using Serial 4 though, so slightly different.  What was it that got it working for you @Duffy?"
