"Nice flight, great video. Just curious how you were able to maintain altitude and position when you mentioned this was a manual flight. A 100m up for me with such a small aircraft is difficult to determine if it's stationary, climbing or falling. …"
Daryl I found that the pinout descritption on the 3DR store site on the GoPro compatible cable looked to be in error. I ohmed out the cable that was sent to me before I connected it from my GoPro to the MinimOSD and found that all except for the RED wire…
I was positioning the 3DR GPS board on my frame when I noticed the red LED light on the GPS board was going on and off. I took a look at the connector on the board and the solder joints look good, but when I wiggle the wires at that connector the…
"It’s good that you have isolated the problem to the ESC. It is probably unlikely that the APM is sending a slower signal specifically to that ESC because I am assuming when you moved the ESC to a different motor you meant that the ESC itself moved…"
"I would check a couple of things because it would appear that your APM does not see the output from your receiver, so the questions are:
1. Is the receiver actually outputing anything,
2. Is the wiring between the receiver and the APM inputs…"
"Marc, have you already setup the PID's for Alt Hold? I think loiter uses Alt Hold so that needs to be sorted out first. BTW, 2.9.1 has been released and if you're still in the tuning stages, it might be best to upgrade while you're in the midst of…"
"I did not see in your setup description that you ran the ESC calibration?
If not, if memory serves, remove props, full throttle, connect battery, then disconnect battery leaving radio throttle full, reconnect battery, should hear the two beeps, drop…"
"I have a question for the group and this may be unrelated to this latest upgrade, but since I flashed the AdruPM v2.3.13 fw, I cannot seem to get channel 6 to tune my PID terms. The APM recognizes channel 6 with a range from 1101 to 1941, but when…"
"I’m having this same problem but my work around is not having to shut down MP but knowing if I’m going into Terminal to retrieve the logs, I click the Terminal button the second time once confirmed connection is good the first time. Once I’ve seen…"
"Now that there is a solution for the Futaba receivers, is this firmware compatible with other receivers or does a person need to flash the other version? If it’s compatible across the board, can we assume future shipments of the APM will have the…"
"I've been beating my head against the wall all weekend wondering why I was getting this twitching or glitching issue. I was trying everything from isolating the APM via various sizes of foam to the frame, filtering, tuning, fresh batteries, logging…"
