hi,I am a bit fighting with my setup to get a fine tuned gopro image. gimbal is very stable and respond well to the changes while tested by hands or on the ground but once in the air I get this…Continue
I tried also apm on large copters and it seems that it can't handle vibrations from big size props. In my research i didn't found anybody flying aerophotography with props bigger than 15 inch with apm. I switched to A2 and it was…"
"Im curious to why you thing APM2.6 was not good. Are you goign to try the pixhawk with this setup. Im curious as Im interested in the larger copter also and how it may be controlled with pixhawk compared to the more expensive…"
