Tim Gold commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post APM:Plane 3.7.0 released
"I upgraded from 3.6 on which seemed to work fine on my pixracer in my RVJET using Elevon output = 2. After upgrading to 3.7 I am no longer able to arm with pre arm checks enabled.  The new mixing error check is causing it to fail.  All…"

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion figuring out the Antenna Tracker
"Randy, when I first loaded the change with the filters after a while i was starting to think that I wouldn't be able to find a filter value that would work.  the .1 default actually killed both pitch and yaw and I had to get a dramatically…"

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion figuring out the Antenna Tracker
"Randy, after implementing the filter it took a while to figure out how this worked but I was able to make everything work with the following PIDs and filter.  My PIDs stayed the same and I had to work with the _FILT with .1 increments to find…"

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion figuring out the Antenna Tracker
"Mike, I think the simplest thing for you to do would be to modify your existing servo to make it CR. There are some pretty informative videos for doing this. The key will be to get the resistor values exactly equal. No matter what you do you will…"

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion figuring out the Antenna Tracker
"Thanks Randy.  Through my efforts over the last year I did end up implementing both the features you listed.  I did just update my implementation to match the ardupilot/AntennaTracker/master implementation.  There is one thing I did…"

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion figuring out the Antenna Tracker
"Over the last several months I been working on a forked version of ardupilot/AntennaTracker which I was able to get to work pretty good.  I had to shelf it for a while and when i came back I noticed that when I came back a number of the…"

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion PixRacer with Ardupilot
"I have been working on a project to implement PixRacer with Plane and am really close to being able to test fly.  I have the latest dev version loaded.  Other than the obvious risks are there any major concerns about being able…"

Tim Gold commented on Nick Arsov's blog post Some new I2C devices from AUAV Co.
"If I currently have a 3dr branded airspeed sensor that I purchased of ebay can I buy the new AUAV I2C hub to make this work by running 5v logic to the airspeed to overcome this failure between the PixRacer and the 3DR airspeed? "

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion PixRacer with Ardupilot
"I was able to implement an external LED via I2C.  This seems to work fine and does show all the status indications fine.  The tri Color LED on the board itself does not indicate any status like the PixHawk does. "

"@Tridge, I did load this dev version last night and will work with it.  It really is a nice feature to have the wifi working.  I will continue to test with this version.  Thanks again for your help."

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion PixRacer with Ardupilot
"Tridge - I know that this discussion is primarily for Arducopter but will these fixes be included in ArduPlane as well?  So far my testing on the latest release of ArduPlane is going well but these features are also not working there. …"

Tim Gold commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post APM:Plane 3.5.1 released
"Thanks Tridge and all others for the new release.  I am hoping to implement the PixRacer with this release.  One issue I see right off is that the Safety switch does not seem to work like the Pixhawk did.  This may be a known PixRacer…"

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion PixRacer with Ardupilot
"For a while ArduCopter has implemented the RSSI via a dc filter but has not yet implemented the PWM option that is currently available in ArduPlane.  Maybe there is something that was missed in the implementation of PixRacer.  I…"

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion PixRacer with Ardupilot
"I believe the goal in the baro chamber in this new pixracer case is to eliminate the need for barofoam.  But they did talk about giving a static port that would allow the baro to work properly.  I would assume just a small hole in the…"

Tim Gold replied to Randy's discussion PixRacer with Ardupilot
"In another forum I noticed that AUAV will eventually be offering a case.  I did see a link to designs already available from Shapeways.  The case does have an isolation chamber for the baro but there was some discussion on the location of…"
