"Well my issues all had to do with the airspeed sensor. Either I was having issues with it or my min speed was too high which resulted in a pitch change to keep airspeed or the values reported from the airspeed sensor weren't working…"
"I too have a similar issue! Although my VSI jumps ~ +400 to -400 while the plane is stationary on the ground. (I'm using the Ardupilot Mega board) The vertical speed sensor goes from ~ -3 to 2. Sensor gone bad?"
"Hmm. Dunno if I missed something when I was reading the information about loading the bootloader. But apparently you CANNOT have the ftdi cable connected while burning the bootloader. I removed the ftdi cable, connected vcc and…"
"I'm talking about Ardupilot not Ardupilot Mega. But my guess is that doesn't really matter. I see the port for 1AT168 and the other one 1AT45. I believe the 1AT168 is for the 368P and the 1AT45 is for the mux (ATiny).…"
"Is the port on the Ardupilot an ISP port? Can I burn the bootloader using a Parallel Programmer? I totally hosed it by making the mistake and trying to load the sweep (example) sketch from the Arduino IDE. I actually did the same…"
"If on the ArduPilot board the status (yellow) light keeps blinking, and while trying to upload code you get the following error: avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
Did I perhaps corrupt my boot loader? It was…"
"Well I've tried several things.
1- on the same machine. Linux or win7 seems to do the same thing. When I run both on the same machine I'm using my Quad Core 2.8Ghz machine with a NVidia 9800GTX. (Both X-Plane…"
"Bleep! I think I've tried everything about 5 times or more. With almost the same results. If you happen to be curious, check out my blur-cam shot of the imu information from Mission Planner while the plane sits on the runway…"
"I know it sounds like I didn't do the radio calibration, but unless I missed something, I believe I followed the instructions.
Here is what I did, am I missing anything?
1 - Load the Mission Planner software
2 - Load the APM…"
