    Ardu may be a shortening of the word Arduino and used to indicate that the original Ardupilot used an Arduino Atmel processor, the 168/328.

    @Rob J: Stands for Arduino, the family of boards that ArduCopter runs on. See: http://arduino.cc/

  • Is Ardu an acronym?  I feel it must be, but can't find anything to explain it.  I just know I'll be sorry for asking this.

  • They change the folder from "APM Planner" to the new folder "Mission Planner". I have the same errors when I did the upgrade. More than that, all my cash maps are not more working even I do copy the cash map folder from one location to other.

    At least we should be informed about those modification.

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.
