ChrisTing replied to Andy Ford's discussion Skywalker X6 for photogrammetry?
"The X6 goes faster than the V6 and is better for cutting through strong headwings.
The usable internal space is somewhat restricted by its compartmentalized design but a compact camera and 10,000 4s lipo can be fitted easily."

"I don't think the A01 electronic shutter will be any good for aerial mapping."

ChrisTing replied to bocorps's discussion skywalker X5 mapping camera choice
"The IXUS 110 I used did not have the aperture leaf in the lens. Instead it uses a ND filter that flips in and out. Say if you select f5.6 then the ND filter flips into the lens assembly to reduce the light getting it. "

ChrisTing replied to Euan Ramsay's discussion Sensefly eBee airframe
"I think the X5 is a good substitute for Sensefly. I had four so far. It's not that bulky with the wing tips removed. I got my mum to sew a carrier bag to carry it around.  "

ChrisTing replied to bocorps's discussion skywalker X5 mapping camera choice
"I have used SX230hs, SX260hs, S100  and IXUS 110 on Skywalker X5.  
All are out of production, from what I gather on camera websites. The IXUS is lighter  but don't have a aperture, just ND filter. Something to consider to if you depth-of-field.

ChrisTing commented on keeyen pang's blog post 100KM Challenge
"Congratulations on your 100km flight. I fly a Skywalker X8. There are about the same size but the FX-79 would be shorter to carry around with its shorter detached wings. "

"I have exactly the same problem last week with APM2.5 on a Skywalker 1.8m (black).
Took off on manual, checked stabilise mode OK, then switched to Auto. The plane immediately powered up, banked and dived. I switched to manual mode but no responses…"

I have been trying unsuccessfully to get Auto mode to work in Ardupilot APM1 for past two weeks. Now I really need some help. In the Ardupilotmega Mission Planner, I setup and loaded into APM1 a simple waypoint track consisting of home and 4…
