Hello, I had an unfortunate crash with my fixed wing (Skywalker X5) and ended up frying both my motor and ESC. So I ordered a new motor and ESC from online store. The package arrived today but the problem is they sent the wrong ESC. I ordered a 30A ERead more…
I am looking to see if anyone knows of a ready to fly pixhawk based mapping plane at around the $1500 price point with camera. I know of the TuffWing at around the $2500 price point plus say 200 for the camera. I was also looking at using the RMRC AnRead more…
I'm working on setting up auto flaps for landing and takeoff on my aircraft. I followed this: http://ardupilot.org/plane/docs/automatic-flaps.html, but I can't seem to get the flaps to move on my benchtop when I put the Pixhawk into FBRead more…
Hello ArduPlane community!
I am having some issues with the way how controller scales control surface throw based on airspeed. Without GPS sensor it appears ArduPlane uses throttle value to limit control surface movement. This behavior makes the planeRead more…
Hi all ,
I am using telemetry 9xtend900 mhz to send and receive pixhawk data , and I am using Video throw video transmitter .
now I have information to send such as :
Camera control data
that data doesn't work with Pixhawk So I nRead more…
Ok, this is an odd problem. Here goes:

I've been using a Pixhawk for a while and I've never had this happen:
We calibrated the accel/compass and gyro when we arrived at the field
All sensors looked good after calibration.
On the ground all of the servos worked (tested throttle as well)Read more…
We did a XAUV Talon flight with latest Arduplane release.
The flight started fine in auto take off with a catapult method.
Once in flight the plane started to make a sinusoidal trajectory as if the center of gravity was off, although the CG had beenRead more…
We are trying to make a dropping mechanism for our plane which involves the following sequence
open door ----- (delay for half a second) ---- release latch (drop bottle) --- (delay half second) --- close door.
