In flight controller failures

Started by Chuck Martin. Last reply by Chuck Martin Jun 1. 2 Replies

I've seen a few videos and tales of multi-rotors and planes falling from the sky "flip of death" and such. They are all very old but I'm wondering if that sort of thing still happens. Continue

Ancient southpaw needs stick mode 3 to fly fixed wing VTOL

I'm new to Arduplane, but I've got high-mileage left-handed reflexes, and need mode 3 to fly. But neither of the ground stations I've tried allow for that control layout. How can I configure Mission…Continue

I am currently flying an APM that is carved open, beaten, twisted, crushed and has as many add-ons as I can fit. While I continue to develop my parts, sensors and such I am also attempting to get a quad built (for faster testing really) and a custom airframe that will hold not just the normal home UAV things but something a lot more special.

I'm enthusiastic builder and programmer but my flying sucks which is why I like APM :D

I have integrated Remzibi OSD, Camera Stabilization & Tracking, and added uBlox DIFF_GPS and DOP to library, I have flown original AP with ArduIMU 1.5 (My 1.0 unit upgraded to 2.0 with AirSpeed Sensor & Mag Compass  in a StevensAero SportStick and a Stryker II.  

I have several platforms in progress for APM 2.

SkyWalker stretched to 100", The New HK AS-21 with popup motor, 2, Piper L-4 Grasshoppers a 1830mm with Monster Power 32 motor  and 2300mm version with Tacon 160 motor  (both are very big inside the 2300 version is really huge, could carry a WiFi repeater with ease.

I update each official; release with all my changes, now current with APM 2.12 

I think it is ready for flight test as I have run it many hours on the bench, last test was 200.000 data points for 48 hrs with no issues.

I am the guy primarily responsible for taking the code from ArduPilot 2.7 to ArduPilotMega 2.2, and beyond hopefully.   I am currently flying APM in a SkyFun, a SkyWalker, and a Senior Telemaster.  I have also flown it in a NexStar MiniEP, so I have some experience with different platforms.  I am using QGroundControl and HK-GCS and starting to look at the GCS functionality in the new APMPlanner.

I have yet to actually fly my APM in one of my TSIIs and in my Maja. I have several Ardupilots that I plan to fly in my EZ*s also. The weather here in North TX has not be cooperating with me, at least when I am at home and not at work. However, I have learned a lot about what to do and what not to do by visiting the Forum every day and taking note of useful informantion.

Regards,

TCIII
