mP1: It will work with both APM and Pixhawk via the I2C port.

Cadbury replied to Craig P.'s discussion Modding tiny holes in 2013 frame for ESC placement on rear like 2014 model. Good idea or Bad idea? in Arducopter Y6 Owners
"I 3D printing an ESC mount to make it easier to attach the ESCs to the arms. I'm using larger ESCs and they didn't really fit in the usual location. I ended up reversing the landing gear to make this fit a little better. Here is the link to the…"

Cadbury replied to Para's discussion APM 2.0 Dataflash Chip
"I replaced mine with the 32MBIT version, AT45DB321D-SU. The APM code supports 32 and 16MBIT. Mine died 1 day and has been working fine since replacing it.

Cadbury commented on Chris Anderson's blog post How to hack a GoPro Hero 3 for FPV
"Be careful, I've had my Hero3 turn off mid flight. Luckily it was close enough that I could fly it home safely. Very scary.

Cadbury replied to Hugues's discussion NEVER connect a Capacitor backup or voltage protector on APM board
"I ran a cap bank for several months so the GPS retained its lock when swapping batteries. I had no issues. It was connected to the PWM input power rail along with the BEC.

Cadbury replied to mostafa eltejaee's discussion APM 2.5 USB connection failure Timeout on read getParamList
"I had the exact issue. Turned out to be a power problem.

Cadbury commented on Nick Goodey's blog post Generate video and OSD with Arduino
"You are probably better off with a MAX7456 as it is designed for graphics. The IC used in the Video Experimenter (a sync separator )is not designed for graphics. You can find an easy to use one here: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9168"

Cadbury commented on R. D. Starwalt's blog post Voltage and Current monitoring for a South Carolina Arducopter
"Instead of using the through holes, you could spit the wire so that half of the strands are one 1 side and half are on the other. Then use heatshrink to cover everything. The hot glue will probably come off eventually. Similar to what I did here,…"
