Good Day All, I am setting up my first Arducopter it is a hex with hardware V2.8 running 3.2.1 firmware. When I test the motors the the Arducopter outputs don't match the motors.The motor plugged in to output 1 should spin whing I select Test Motor A a in the Mission Planner as I understand it. Instead Moter 5 spins. Am I missing something?

Thanks

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.

Asif what FC do you have?  I have an APM 2.8 on my rover and I had the compass jumper in the wrong spot, I had the same issue where I couldn't calibrate the compass.

I think there is a paperclip reset hole on the side of the pixhawk.  That should do it.

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?

Regards Dave
