Andrew Tridgell commented on makeflyeasy's blog post Brother of the believer, the free began the test.
"@makeflyeasy, we do support tilt aircraft of this type in ArduPilot releases already, so I'm a bit puzzled by your comment. I've sent you a PM - maybe we should have a chat about how the ArduPilot dev team can better support you?"

"very nice setup, congratulations!
I just received a believer from you (thank you) and I'm looking forward to flying it. I had wondered if someone would convert it to VTOL, and it looks like you've done it very nicely.
If you need any assistance with…"

and ask questions on the discussion forum at discuss.ardupilot.org
Cheers, Tridge"

"perhaps better to communicate trough gitter.im or slack for the FFT which can make things faster ?

sure, which channel? What is your ID ?"

"adding js FFT library is not a problem, ISBH FMT packages is shown in the data you sent but not the ISBD.

The ISBD is there, you can see it with:
mavlogdump.py 000040.BIN --type ISBD
I suspect your parser doesn't understand the new 'a' format type:…"

"For fft i want to clarify  you want to also visualize FFT version of the signal or its just already FFTied in the format it needs to be reverselyFFT to the original signal.

It's just the sensor data, so you'd need a javascript FFT library, sorry

and I was delighted to find it could handle it in firefox. It did raise the memory usage of the browser to over 8G once I had an acce…"

"Would you post a large log file and highlight the anomalies in time ?

I just retried the log I tested yesterday and now it works fine. Maybe a bug was fixed?
Supporting MavGraph xmls is on the way.

thanks, much appreciated! I see its there now. A…"

"would you also share the link for the new FFT log support ?

We have a new option INS_LOG_BAT_MASK that sets a mask of IMUs for "batch logging". It creates ISBH header log messages and ISBD data messages. The result is a way to log groups of IMU sam…"

great! How do we collaborate? Is there a git repo with the javascript source somewhere?

"I suspect the time issues may be time wrapping. Do you keep the TimeUS as a 64 bit number, or is it somewhere represented as a 32 bit microseconds?"

Are you interested in collaboration on further development of this? For example, I'd like to support the XML graph descriptions used in MAVExplorer, support the n…"

"This was a standard windows installation, so it appears the file is a leftover from a previous version, though why mavproxy would use the old file is a mystery.

It is python that is choosing what file to use, not mavproxy. MAVProxy is just the vict…"

The current docs are:

although most windows users just use the pre-compiled SITL that is built into MissionPlanner. Did you try that?
