Anders Hansen replied to Jon Eikelund's discussion Batteri til Hex med 8" prop og HP2212 1000kv. Noen forslag? in NO Ardupilot Group
"Hei,

Har bygd en del oppsett i den størrelsen du snakker om.
Personlig ville jeg gått for 11x4.7 propeller, synes 8" gir altfor lite skyv.
Når det kommer til batterier er favoritten min 4S 5000mAh. Disse får en for 35 USD på hobbyking.

Anders Hansen commented on Stefan Gofferje's blog post Tinkering with Neopixel LED-strips
"Also the led strips are much cheaper on aliexpress.com, as long as you can wait the week or to it takes to get them shipped all the way from China.. I think I payed around 13 USD per meter incl shipping, but I had to order 4 meters.."

Anders Hansen commented on Stefan Gofferje's blog post Tinkering with Neopixel LED-strips
"I've used the WS2812 strips for many projects, and was thinking of implementing it on my hexacopter as well. The thing that stopped me initially was the fact that the code that you need to run to address them is very computeintensive. (800kHz bitban…"

Anders Hansen replied to Jason Tinacci's discussion Copter Frames camera gimbals
"Hi,

I recently received my ThreeDee gimbal, and assembled it this evening..
It looks like a very decent kit, good precision in the manufacturing. And high quality components as well.
Only problem I have found so far is some slack on the roll axis.…"

Anders Hansen replied to Gregory Thomas's discussion One ESC beeps but only when plugged into Mission Planner
"Hi,

I'd bet that the ESC which beeps, is the one that usually is supplying the APM with electricity.
When you connect the USB to the APM, you're feeding the APM with +5 volts, the same voltage
will travel back to the ESC and hence booting it up. Bu…"

"Hi,

I had the exact same problems.
After a new radio calibration; problem solved.
Hope it works for you too.."

"Hi,

Try this calculator:

Have been pretty correct when I have used it."

Anders Hansen replied to Mark Slater's discussion Powering Gimball servos from the APM
"The best way would be to buy a BEC, as this will prevent brownouts on the APM during hefty servoaction. 
I've go for a 6v instead of 5v, as this gives you a quicker servo response. (Just check that your servos can handle it)

Personally I'd also get…"

Anders Hansen commented on Janne Mäntyharju's blog post Lesson learned about 3DR ESCs and cold weather
"@Alexsey Novik I used the tgy.hex. I'd also recommend getting the Atmel flashtool from Hobbyking: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__27195__Atmel_Atmega_Sock...
And the software I got it to work with was 'KKflashtool' 

Happy flashing!"

Anders Hansen commented on Janne Mäntyharju's blog post Lesson learned about 3DR ESCs and cold weather
"Hi,
I had the exact same problem with the stock DIYdrones ESC's.
After I flashed them to SimonK FW the problem has disappeared.

Actually me and a friend was taking our hexas for a spin an hour ago.
He has not flashed his ESC's, and had the exact sa…"

Anders Hansen commented on Jan's blog post Arducopter Pilotlamp based on Mavlink
"Hey, would it be possible to get a look at your code? I'm trying to do the exact same thing with an ioBoard from jDrones.. They have an example but their code was a mess to get my head wrapped around. 

Regards,
Anders"

Anders Hansen replied to Stefano Santucci's discussion 3 Axis Synchronous Belt Drive Aerial PTZ Pan Tilt Zoom Camera Mount/
"Hi,

I have just completed my build with the exact same gimbal
I'm planning on doing a buildlog on how I did it, since it was not straight forward.

As you probably have found out there is somewhere between little and no build-instructions.

The mac…"

Anders Hansen replied to John OBrien's discussion er9x and 3DR Radio Combination
"It's is possible me and a friend followed the gv9x guide, and just replaced the Xbee with the 3dr radio.
One problem we've found is it will lock up if you also have a radio connected to your pc at the same time.
The solution here is to first initiat…"

Anders Hansen replied to marcelo's discussion Short indoor flight, landed no throthle but motors didn't stop
"This happens if you have enabled the ALT_HOLD mode and try to land with it while it is engaged.
The solution is to land in STABILIZE, not in ALT_HOLD."

"Hi,

The same happened to me after an heavy impact.
I managed to fix so that it was able to function again, but the rest of the card was so smashed that I didn't dare fly with it again.

Anywho, here is how i fixed mine:
1. Put som soldering tin on,…"

Hi,Until today my APM2 has performed very good, but now it has changed it mind regarding booting with power from the output rail. And yes I have the JP1 connected, and tried to hardwire it just to be certain.And it is not a brown-out, as I have also…
