If you own a drone, you must register it with the Federal Aviation Administration's Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) registry. A federal law effective December 21, 2015 requires unmanned aircraft registr
I had a crash today caused by the loss of the RC transmitter signal. I was in a designated safe area and nothing bad happened except for the plane, but I am sure the crash could have been avoided if I had a deeper understanding on how to operate arduRead more…
i ve been running apm 1.0 ages ago, with a great pleasure.
now i am coming back with an apm 2.6 and i am facing an issue, that i dont understand at all.
when i power my plane in manual mode (i ve disable arming_require) everything works fine.
In a plane you use the power module or attopilot to measure current and voltage of the main batteries.
In a plane the servo rails must be powered by it's own power source, and with the zenner diode, if the power module fails to provide power t
I would like to ask you, dear members of the arduplane forum, if the lenght, inner diameter and type of material of the air tube of the airspeed sensor matter in terms of affecting the precision of the sensor. I have searched all over the i
I flew my skywalker for the first time yesterday. Sometimes while flying, the message "bad compass health"appeared
I attach graphs of 2 logs, throttle and Mag_field. Is the magnetic interference razonable? I think it isn't, but I don't know theRead more…
I have a generic APM power module. When I measure the power coming out of the module I find it to be 5.1-5.2V. When I measure the voltage across A01 I find it to be 4.7-4.8V. When I look at th3e telemetry data it shows 4.7-4.8v, it varies a bit witRead more…
I thought I'd post this so others don't make the same mistake.
I had bought hkpilot and airspeed sensor from hobbyking, then bought 3DR DF13 cables, as I'd damaged the original hk cable.
What I didn't realise was that the pins are around the other wayRead more…
I use APM2.6.
I have attempted to build a code along the steps,but can't compile.
Is it possible to use Arduino IDE?Read more…
Why is the remote control of RC model so sluggish with latency with use of APM even in manual mode in comparing with remote control without APM, please?
Is it possible to improve it somehow?
Is it better with Pixhawk or is it the same behavior?Read more…
Is it possible to cover APM with aluminum foil to minimize UHF noise interference or is it bad idea because of its sensors, please?
I use Mini APM 2.7.2.
Have occurred weird problem with second compass and its calibration.
Here already problem was explained by another forum member. :
I thought,Read more…
I am trying to setup and to configure my APM 3.1 mini with FliteTest Blunt Nose Versa flying wing and ArduPlane 3.4 firmware. I have more or less everything connected, setup, configured and working, but only missing thing is arming via rudder.
I do noRead more…
I have a few random questions on minim OSD and hoping someone can help out. I've got mine working and have done the firmware update (ver 2.4, Plane R703) and also configured using the CT, but have a few minor issues:
Firstly, I constantly get a batterRead more…
