  • hello fellow pilots.

    Has anyone heard of a aerial mapping system called VMAP?

    I have read that tower companies are starting to use drones to inspect and map their towers.

  • open MP then press control F and the select Param Gen on the left. 

    close it and MP. Open MP and connect to your APM and all the drop downs in flight mode should now be populated.

  • Good evening 

    Is there a simple way to reset my pixhalk ? 

    I purchased one to put in my 650 tarot and used mission planner to set it up, as I am use to this.

    Then I read Qground control was better , don't believe everything you read.

    So tryed it and don't like it and thought I could just reinstalled program from mission planner.No you can't won't install firmware ,so I want to start all over again from fresh. Is there a way to do this ? Looked and asked intranet without any joy.

    Anybody?

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.
