I've just released ArduPlane 2.61, which has a lot of small bug fixes from 2.60.
Changes since the 2.60 release include:
Let me ask. Is the channel mode bug fixed?
Does this also include that improved CH 3 bootup sequence that Craig wrote to avoid that can't-arm issue we found with some of those cheap Chinese ESCs?
I am impressed with all the improvements in the last few firmware updates. Especially for us that don’t use the airspeed sensor.
Keep up the good work!
No, it doesn't have those changes. I just did some testing with Craig this morning and for some reason I can't reproduce the problem now!
I can reproduce a related problem though. If I power up my SkyFun with the TX off (so RX has no signal) then the ESC doesn't boot properly. The patch from Craig and Randy does help with that. I've pushed it to master.
This is what i meant also.
That s great news!
I am experiencing something very strange. When ARSPD_USE = 1 than horizon starts jumping. :(
I have attached the tlog.
Another serious problem is that, as air speed grows APM shows the plane pitches down.

Having an issue in FBW-A. I've been following the tuning guide and I seem to have most issues solved.
When I'm banking to the left it banks to 40 degree's holds it and maintains altitude. When banking to the right it banks to 60 degrees and holds it. The pid is set to hold 40 degree's. Any suggestions on what values to be checking? In manual mode the plane flys perfect.
Maybe your gain is too high causing it to over bank. Also make sure that your transmitter does not have and aileron to rudder mixing.
I fly with no airspeed sensor. So far everything I tried with V2.61 has worked perfectly and the airspeed estimate on the HUD seams very reasonable.
