Hi all, can someone please help?

Did my maiden on the Sky Hunter last weekend and although successful (I didn't crash) There are a couple of issues that I need help with.

1/ EKF Vibe was showing in red at the bottom of the artificial horizon screen.

2/ error terrain alt variance warning was showing throughout most of the flight.

I didn't notice these warnings as I was using a tablet with DroidPlanner app.

I was playing around with the log files to see if I could make sense out of the analysis side of Mission Planner when I came across these issues. The log files in question are attached if someone would be kind enough to have a quick look to see if I should be worried.

Thanks in advance, I hope someone can help.

What is the Max Baud Rate on Pixhawk Serial 4/5 ports.

I want to setup a Range Finder and it can operate at 921600 baud.

DigiKey is pretty awesome. I got an upgrade GPS chip for my Phantom 2 there for about $5 or so, they have just about everything...

nice to know.......where to go (when I run out of 3DR OEM cables :)

Comment by DirtCreature on February 27, 2016 at 5:16pm


@martin @thomas and everyone else!

This page has a link to all the cables and connectors at DigiKey.

This page links to a cart I made at DigiKey (don't know how long shared carts last). You can edit to your needs.

Each cable is double ended with 12", so each makes 2 cables of 6" if you don't need both with the hirose.

Doesn't look like helibatics has cables anymore.

Version Pixhawk software to install.

I understand that they have a upgrade of software that take care of "Range Finders" and other bugs.

Is there a stable or beta version that takes care these problems ?

And what Version is it ?
