  • Do we have a release date for .50?  Days, Weeks ???



  • Pull from Git.  .50 is working pretty darn well on me quad and Y6.

  • Yes Dave, I know. I was just thinking that if .50 comes with major changes I might have to start tweaking parameters once again when transitioning from .49. Not a problem but not optimal ;)

  • You can always just update your firmware (and backup any tunings you have made) when it comes out if you carry on with 49 now.

  • Development team: - When might we expect 2.0.50 release?

    (if it´s just around the corner I might put my setting up of a new quad on hold until new FW arrives)

  • Thank You .. i will post there

    @ahmed - please make a post in the forums, where we can reply to your questions better. In the user group, we cannot have threaded replies. Please provide photos, video, and details about your frame and motors and props (custom? ArduCopter2/jDrones? 3DR frame? Other?) What version of Mission Planner and what version of ArduCopter?


    Also, please read the manual about troubleshooting, and learn about auto trim, sensor aliasing and vibration, center of gravity, and ground effect.

    Adil: Set one of your toggle switch modes to Loiter. Wait for GPS lock, then fly and switch into Loiter at the position you want to hold.

    Can somebody help me step by step on how to set the gps hold. Thank you in advance.

I have been Reading Chris Olsen posts and watching his videos on Arducopter with traditional Helis using a Pixhawk.I have inherited an older Trex 450 heli with the old Align 3G FBL hardware.  The FBL controller appears to be bad.  So I have an old APM 2.5 without a compass or GPS on board.  I just want to replace the failed Align 3G FBL system with the APM.Now I have to mount the APM under the skids on the heli so the APM will be upside down.I have Two questions.1)  Is the AHRS_ORIENTATION=8…

Maximum number of Lidar for Object Avoidance

Hi all,I'm setting up my PX4-based quad with ST VL53L0X Lidar sensors (I currently have three) and I noticed that line #24 of the current Rangefinder library (here: https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot/blob/master/libraries/AP_RangeFinder/RangeFinder.h#L24) has the maximum number of sensors set to 10 (ten). Am I understanding this correctly? And has anyone ever tried to setup this many rangefinders (or anything close) with any measure of success?Any input/advice will be greatly appreciated.
