Hey all,forgive me if this has been addressed already, but i haven't been able to track down an answer in the previous issues posted here. I trying to run APM 2 with the stock firmware from the APM…Continue
"I have been trying to mount my APM 2 at a 270 degree roll, but there seems to be some sort of coupling left over from what used to be the roll channel. As you increase pitch, you get a corresponding left roll. The APM is down 20 degrees in the photo…"
"Chris, I find it hard to believe that after 10 pages of people expressing virtually the same problem, the problem is unique to one person. Does this not warrant some investigation from the developers? There seems to be quite a large community of…"
"Thanks for all the help! I ended up running the 3dr config tool that was posted earlier. It looks identical to the GCS 3dr setup, but worked out fine for me. if you could let me know what joystick/telemetry/baud rate settings allow for you to have…"
"Hey Monroe, thanks for the post. I saw the previous settings, but i have a feeling that i screwed up the settings, so they won't accept the stock settings. Unless I have the net ID wrong, i already checked the other settings. I will try…"
"I'm in the same boat, though its completly my fault.... i had it all working, but changed the baud to 115, and the air speed to 250 and clicked save. Now both sides are blinking, and i can't find a combination to make them work..."

Seeing as this seems to work great for what i'm trying to do, i'll stick with the coding here. The only ones that didn't address were:
Initial number (634257646056875000) - is this the Time Of Week value and just not…"
"I'm compatible with a bunch of protocols. What was posted was the ArduPilot Legacy ASCII (human readable) protocol specs. They are by far the simplest to implement if you're looking for a way to pass data from your device to my GCS. The…"
Sorry for dragging this conversation on, but now that i've got your attention, i want to make the most of it!
Some other people had commented a while back about parsing the parameters used in the raw log output files used for…"
Active Duty Air Force, studied aircraft Stabiliy and control, and then small RPA stabiliy and control for my masters. Just getting into R/C hobby, and excited at the possibilities of collaborative research in the UAV field.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
started working with high-endurance UAVs as part of my masters thesis, and got hooked on the potential and thrill of autonomous controlled a/c.
