  • Is it possible to fry your apm board through errors in the arducopter program?

  • How to add a flight mode of my own. .. ??

    @Lucas re obstacle avoidance,

        Somebody asked that same question on the sonar wiki earlier today, i guess it's a popular thing that people want.  We don't support that at the moment and no specific plans to add it although it wouldn't be too difficult.  People would have to buy at least 4 more sonars though..$120-ish..not terrible i guess.

  • What are the features that can be realised for an Arducopter? 
    Are there something like obstacles avoidance?

    @Bradley re what is the pwm coming out of RX.  If you have your APM connected to the mission planner, go to the configuration screen, radio configuration screen and below or beside each of the green bars you will see the raw pwm value.

  • Could somebody tell me what the PWM is coming out of a RX.  I don't have my scope anymore so I really don't have a way of telling.  I needed to see what the range is coming out of my futaba radio..

  • Bonjour,

    une petite question: avec Mission Planner 1.2.11 comment avoir la fonction "Prefetch" ? le bouton a disparu!!3692505864?profile=original


  • Hmm, we've just received another bigger, heavier, more powerful quad. It was passed down to us from a couple of people who have flown it fine before.

    After re-assembling it, we tested it's flight. During rolling, the motors on the relevant side are supposed to power up to allow it to roll, however one does not do this. This is the same when rolling in either direction. Does anyone know a fix for this?

    Thanks. X)

    @Zachary re getting help understanding the arducopter code,

         You could start a discussion (which allows threads in the reply) here or in the "Learning to program the ardupilot mega" group.  Good luck

  • Hi guys,

    I'm relatively new to the arducopter/plane scene (just started in June). A group of friends and I are trying something ambitious as our first project that requires some coding which I am supposed to do. I was hoping to find some help/people to consult here. Would this be the right place to ask such things? It'd be pretty awesome if someone who completely understands the arducopter code could see this.

    But any help would be greatly appreciated.

Building Possibly My Last Multicopter

I left the hobby in 2022 after the crash of my Tarot Ironman due to a propeller blade separation resulting in complete destruction of the aircraft. Since then I have been flying an old DJI MAvic Pro that I bought used from a photographer who wanted to upgrade. Anyway, recently l've thought about wanting to build one more multicopter. I enjoyed the challenges of building one plus the satisfaction of flying something I built. So I decided to once again embark on a build project. My needs…

Drone flying to non visible point

Hi there,I encountered a problem, while flying in auto mode, with approching to point that was not set by trajectory and is not visible after downloading mission from flight controller by Mission Planner. Does anybody encountered similar problem. The situation is that in the middle flight I stopped the UAV and uploaded new mission and after changing to auto mode it starts to fly in some direction. It goes straight to some point, so I assume it's not mechanical problem. I attached the link to…
