I have a couple questions to issues I have not been able to figure out.
Based on, I am running MissionPlanner 1.3.17 build 1.1.5472.17896 (PC version), and AC-3.2:
1) Is there a way to view the .param files "offline" when I am not connected to my Pixhawk flight controller? Sometimes I would like to look at my configuration files without having to connect to my multi-rotor that may be located somewhere different than my laptop. I have saved the .param files to my computer, just haven't figured out how to look at them when "not connected".
2) When I am in the CONFIG/TUNING screen and I am looking at the "FULL PARAMETER" list, the lines alternate black and white on-screen. The problem I have is that the text on the black lines is black, thus I cannot see half the settings. I use "standard" windows colors by default on my computer. The only way I can see the black text on the black lines is to change my personalization settings to a "high contrast". I am running WIndows 7 64bit. Is there a setting in MP that will enable viewing of the alternating black lines that have black text on them?
3) If flying in one of LOITER / ALT-HOLD / POS-HOLD, is it possible to create a situation where a quad or hex can descend faster than it can "recover" based on setting PILOT_ACCEL_Z and PILOT _VELZ_MAX improperly? Situation, I was recently flying in POS_HOLD and my hex experienced a descent (and bumped the ground from about 40') faster than it could recover from when I "throttled-up". My settings were PILOT_ACCEL_Z = 350, and PILOT_VELZ_MAX = 500. Along with that, I had changed THR_DZ from 100 to 50. My intent was to gain a little more responsive altitude adjustment when flying in POS_HOLD, but I think I over-did-it. What are the default values for these settings, I think I may have to go back?
4) What are the default settings for SR0 (full list) and SR1 (full list), and what are their definitions? I am running 3DR genuine MinimOSD on one channel and 3DR genuine Bluetooth module on the other channel. I was having problems with Mavlink Data (flow) to my MinimOSD after recent firmware upgrade. I figured out from another site what values I should use for SR0/1_EXTRA_1/2/3, but it would be nice to know what these items relate to.
