Tim McPherson replied to Andy's discussion APM 2.5 without RC-Receiver
"You can already fly it with just the telemetry without changing any code. However, it is not advisable to do so for many very good reasons."

Tim McPherson replied to Manuel Metz's discussion 25kg delta UAV starts oscillating during descent
"Hi Manuel, Your aircraft and launcher are superb! If you have a link to it being launched or flying, it would be greatly appreciated. Is it constructed of foam and, are those slick/slender wings causing your oscillations at high speed? "

Tim McPherson replied to Manuel Metz's discussion 25kg delta UAV starts oscillating during descent
"What do you mean by oscillating with respect to your aircraft? If you mean roll or pitch oscillations then try reducing the corresponding Proportional gains a bit to make it less sensitive at higher air speeds."

Tim McPherson replied to Jeff P's discussion Loiter question
"Was it a windy day? Is the loiter radius set too short? It mat be a tuning issue. I have an X8 too and it likes larger diameter loiters and way points. I fly my X8 on the default tuning parameters."

"There is no difference, however, do not put it in the disturbed airstream of the fuselage. Oh! and have fun."

Tim McPherson replied to Karthik's discussion APM 2.5 with an airspeed sensor
"Telemetry will report a GPS calculated ground speed without the need of the airspeed sensor. This works well when there is little to no wind."

Tim McPherson replied to Will Fellmeth's discussion Fully autonomous flight w/o RC
"You may well be able to fly it sans Tx/Rx, but, you are just begging to destroy your equipment."

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
The idea of using model aircraft for aerial photography has gotten me back into the RC hobby after 12 years of no flying.
