I've recently tried to setup APM for my new flying wing and discovered that it is not safe to fly in other than Manual modes =( The reason is servo throws for most flying wings must be limited, but…Continue
Finally, I'm back to the sky =)I've fixed my EPP FPV plane and uploaded latest firmware via Mission Planner. Setup and go!Manual take-off - all great, hit Stabilize - perfect and smooth, then I…Continue
Just an idea - nowadays 3G modems cost nearly nothing with their free plans for few months. So I guess it has main chip which can accept AT-Commands like:ATOKAT+CMGF=1OKAT+CMGW="+85291234567"> A…Continue
This time I've take-off in manual mode and then switched to auto. The plane starts to fly as programmed, but wind slide it few meters away from the point. That time observers starts to panic and I (never do that again) switched to manual to turn plane back to me... That was the biggest mistake! I've should wait a bit more... Luckily, nothing was broken - plane disassembled itself into 3 pieces. 5 minutes to take it together without any glue and back to the sky!
Here is a…Continue
Right now I'm far away from home, but I've found some extra time to work on my code for APM. But how am I going to test it without APM? Here is the video which shows a successful run of modified APM code on virtual APM =)
"\n" is not working good on this emulator.
Here is what you need:

Here is another thing that I did - 9) CLI – message when bad command entered - Add a message so users know when they have entered an invalid command.
So instead of just swallowing wrong commands it will be something like this:
ArduPlane V2.24] blah-blah-blah
Unknown command! Please try again.
Type 'help' to see…
I've always wanted to take part in arduplane development, so I finally have chance to do it =)
