"The best theory that I have seen is that the arms can be actuated so the motors are either above or below a central mounted camera. This way you can get shots from above, as well as level or below level with the target."
"My dome has worked in a variety of configurations. I had an opening for the 910mhz antenna and 3 other holes which at one time had a camera mounted to it. These are now covered with tape since the components are removed. The dome base has a…"
"I have an aircraft with a dome cover. It flies perfectly stable and is my most reliable aircraft (X8 config). If possible, a large semi-sealed volume around the APM seems to dampen the effect. I am sure there are still times when conditions are…"
"Just for kicks I sealed the input side of the APM 2.6 as well as the USB and GPS ports with blue masking tape. Seemed to improve the performance. I almost feel that adding extra venting to the APM 2.6 case would reduce the amount of pressure build…"
"Very nice. Was noticing this issue today with APM 2.6. I am not enthused about having to crack the case and put play dough over the pressure sensor. Seems like this could also be resolved by use of the external pitot tube setup (modified of…"
"Turn off the compass learn setting. As mentioned somewhere else, make sure you have the declination proper. Also check the HDOP numbers before taking off. If the pre-arm checks are disabled you may have a high HDOP and if the compass if off as…"
It seems the castle speed controls require the "fast" setting in the motor spin before they will do anything. They still spin slowly at this setting. I changed to AC 3.1.1 because it was closer to what I have…"
APM 2.6 with I believe AC 3.1.2 but I need to double check.Castle 35a controllers, 6s battery, 380kv motors, JR 9303.I typically set up all of my aircraft with the motor spin set to 0 for first flights. This is working fine.I now want to set the…
"I have been in the hobby for 15+ years and have always had good experiences with castle creations. Most of the failures I have seen are due to improper setup. I typically run all of my equipment at the specified limit or just beyond. There are…"
"Havent read all the responses here, but coming from the giant scale aircraft world where we run 12-16 super high torque digital servos in one aircraft, we use smart-fly and fromeco regulators, if at all. Most setups are now 7.4v and run directly…"
As I understand the Wiki, a battery fail safe setting will only save the aircraft in certain ways depending on what mode it is currently flying in. Is there a way to define what the safety action is when the low voltage failsafe is activated? If…
