"What Android app did you find was the best?  I have tried two (can't remember names right now) on my Asus Transformer and I found they were not very fast/responsive.  Almost like they had dampeners on the output.  I guess it…"

"I myself enjoy a product that continues to move forward and releases several versions on the way.  Users are not obligated to upgrade each and every time a new iteration is complete.   Once the weather here in Winnipeg, Canada warms up I…"

ward replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter 2.7.2/2.7.3 released
"The motors were all squared up at launch. I think the camera is messing with the image a bit (GoPro Hero2 with 170 degree lens). I do notice the right motor seems to twist a little left at one point. I also believe at the time of "control…"

"I used lots of lock-tite but the tube motor mounts still twisted on the carbon tube.  I am now going to longer 12mm square aluminium tube with bolts going through the tubes.  I am going to try and get at least an inch (2mm+) between the…"

"I saw that vibration too.  With only one prop on one motor it did not vibrate as I did ballance the props.  I think the problem was two fold: 12" props were too close to each other ; Arms were too long and too thin (12mm).  The…"

"Wow... i just crashed my octo too.  Grass not concrete.   Busted two arms and 7 props.  My UBlox got messed up too.  Would you be willing to sell me your scrap UBlox?  I may be able to make one working one from our two…"

"If you have a Dual Core CPU, and your MP is taking 50%, this shows that your MP is using 100% of one core.  Very strange."

ward replied to Joonas's discussion Motor redundancy with PID tuning
"I flew my Octo for the first time yesterday. On two flights I had a prop explode. The Octo flew very poorly but did land. I lost almost all control but it stayed relatively level. I agree that this area needs more work. One note: if this had been my…"

ward replied to Palmer Eldritch's discussion Strange motor behavior
"Not sure what it is.  I think I have two bad ESC's.  The troubled ones are running very hot.  A blast of canned air (upside down) causes them to run MUCH better.  Eight new ones with SimonK code on order."

ward replied to Palmer Eldritch's discussion Strange motor behavior
"I am getting the same situation on my octo.  Each time I calibrate my ESC's I get a different motor stalling out or running slow.  I have tried the APM2 ESC calibration and the direct-to-receiver calibration. Both seem…"

"I did a Loiter at about 4 meters with the "MB1260 XL-MaxSonar-EZL0 High Performance Ultrasonic Range Finder"  and found it to be very stable.  This was over grass then a field of Canola then gravel.  Here are the things I…"

"Mine hangs too. Windows 7 with APM2. Failes with USB cable or XBEE wireless mode. No the USB com port does not dissapear. I go into Terminal and see data streaming on the window. Hit Enter (or any key) and the windows freezes. The only way out is to…"
