"Hi, i just have same issues as many 2830a users, coincidence ??? Why pid tuning is so complicated with these motors, instead others seems fine with default pids?  :s"

"Hi ward, I have an APM 2 in perfect condition with case and mediatek gps i'd like to sell. No damage to board but I did install two super capacitors (neatly) as battery backup for the gps: once you get fix, powering off and back on you get 3d…"

Victor Iliescu replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter 2.8 released
"Any plan of implementing an autotune function? Even if it's a seperate firmware  (because of space restrictions) it would be extremely usefull. That and a cheap bluetooth function, I can't tell you how much I despise having to land,…"

"For what it's worth, I'm a lot happier with arducopter as of 2.7.3 so good job to the developers. Loiter and such actually works, but there are still many issues, mainly with the GPS not getting a lock in a reasonable time essentially…"

Victor Iliescu commented on lot's blog post Quad copter flying for 4-8 hours
"I can't believe how obvious their lies are to anyone with a bit of rc experience. Take a look at the microdrone uav and not that they claim only 1H22min as maximum flight time with lots of various custom bits to help them get there. These guys…"

"Derek,      I could be that developer, or maybe it was Michael Oborne (MissionPlanner) or Amilcar (the one who wrote the majority of the camera code).      There is/was a bug in the mission planner where…"

"Hi Will and Victor. As jasonshort mentioned at the top, the 4S will give your motors more grunt - so reducing the Rate Roll /Pitch P down is a good start. I am in a similar boat to you guys and have only just started fooling around with the…"

"Hey will, I found that rate mode really doesn't work like a heading hold system unless you add the "I" term in there. Without that, my quad would drift and pitch around depending on wind or balance and often would overshoot. Adding…"
