I'm led to believe that V3.01 on an APM2.5 cannot fly octocopters in anything other than Stabalise/Alt Hold modes due to overload on the processor bringing the 50Hz loop down to around 5Hz.
1. Is this true ?
2. If so why is the firmware code still available - An octo is an expensive bit of kit so what restrictions if any on flight modes ?
3. Is the only solution Pxhawk ?
And more worrying - does this mean I need to go back to 2.9 until I can afford new hardware ???
Is this true?
It was due to fly a demo gimbal this weekend.
