Andrew A replied to Andrew A's discussion Pixhawk ArduPlane V3.5.3 Accelerometer Calibration Issues
"Is Mission Planner discontinued? @Andre K, it seems like you are implying that MP is the problem, and that I should switch to APM planner 2. I just want to make sure that I don't use MP if no developers are going to be working on it anymore."

"OK I'll see how well it works. Is it just like Mission Planner? It took a while for me to get proficient with MP so I just want to make sure I can have quick, smooth transition between the two programs."

Andrew A replied to Airflix Drone Solutions's discussion Arduplane 3.5.0 "Not compatible with this board" Pixhawk PX4
"No I am not getting those errors, but my accelerometer calibration keeps failing with Arduplane V3.5.3 and V3.5.0. I went back to V3.4.0 and it seems to work just fine.

"@Andrew Tridgell

Are you sure the correct LOG_BITMASK number is 65535? I have here:
http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/parameters.html
That the number is supposed to be 655358. Is this correct? Also, I have accidentally put the 65535 number as the LO…"

Andrew A replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter-3.0.1 released!
"OK I thought it might be that the SD card was corrupted. But I placed the micro SD card from the Pixhawk into my computer (via a SD card adapter) and I was able to access the contents of the disk with no issues. I then put it back in my Pixhawk and…"

"I know that they are supposed to be enabled at all times, but recently my Pixhawk has suddenly stopped recording dataflash logs. It just says that the SD card is empty and there are not files. Do you possibly have an explanation as to why it stopped…"

"Hey there,
Can you please tell me where in the code you found the sampling frequency? I am a newbie, and any help would be appreciated. I think I need to increase my sampling frequency as well, and I will let you know what I find.
Thank you for any…"

Hey guys, I am pretty new to all this, but I have a problem with using 'Make' to compile the ArduPlane code in Eclipse for my Pixhawk. I have been following the directions on this page:http://dev.ardupilot.com/wiki/editing-the-code-with-eclipse/Unfo&am...;

"Wow, I didn't know that port 1 can deliver more current. Does this make a difference when one either plugs in the 3DR radio module or the OSD into port 2? "
