I'm trying to help my parents out. They're getting old(er) and having trouble working their gardens. If there's a topic board or group for this, please direct me to them! They like using hand tools, so I though I'd try turning some of their things…

"I don't know, sounds like a scripting thing. Common response would be to remove and reload the program, which give you a clean slate. Anti-uav methods are being experimented with so I wouldn't discount spoofing either if it's a repeating offence. "

"I had the same problem once, for me I hadn't properly loaded the new flight plan so the UAV flew to the previous coordinates(which were several miles away). The RTL feature works because it sets "home" when it arms and not from the flight plan.

"The flir one is 250 bucks and has a much, much better resolution. Only problem is its slaved to the iphone 5 os, so if anyone knows how to rip the thermal/optical camera out to use with something like a fpv system id like to talk."

"I totally believe in doing the sim> cheap quad> expensive quad> diy multirotor path, but the sim part can't cover everything. For instance: I disturbed a flock of pigeons while flying in my field, one of whom knocked down my gps antenna and caused…"

"Gracias por el consejo , aunque prefiero Inglés para que todos pudieran entender fácilmente el consejo . Destrocé de nuevo después de hacer reparaciones, pero que era de una colisión con un ave y no por mi culpa . Dumb pigeon."

"I am a master at repairing for sure by now. I wish the programing bits were included in the documentation that came with the uav. Just found out about apm autotune, that would have helped so much ealier.

Is there a good book on uav electronics?"

I want to fly drones, so I bought the iris. It didn't listen half the time and has crashed so much it looks like an IED hit it. I thought I'd learned so I bought a y6 diy kit. It just fell out of the sky with the walkera g 3d gimbal and smashed…

"If it's level it's not the motors. I'd agree with the decision to reload the software with the new config. It sounds like a software logic issue to me."
