Derek Ernewein replied to Dennis Baldwin's discussion Fixed Wing Drone Crash w/ APM:Plane - Need Help Reconstructing the Data
"So, if you move your mouse around the map on Mission Planner you can get it to update the lines on the map faster. Looks like my theory was likely just due to a mission planner issues with displaying the lines. Watching it slower it looks okay.
I…"

Derek Ernewein replied to Dennis Baldwin's discussion Fixed Wing Drone Crash w/ APM:Plane - Need Help Reconstructing the Data
"I agree. I think the clevis is the cause too. I am trying to view the tlog slow enough to see if the HUD or map show any signs of this. So far, I am seeing the link line in front of the UAV icon on the map side seem to show that the plane was trying…"

"I wish i could help, but it has been a few years since I looked at tlogs. Maybe I will try anyway just to see if I can find anything for you.I am pretty disappointed that you have got got any replies yet.

Here is your YouTube video about the crash…"

Derek Ernewein replied to Frank Bernd's discussion ArduPilot Mega 3.0 wishes ;-)
"I wish for built in vibration dampening in a small package (like the Naza). I dislike the Naza, but they did some things right."

Derek Ernewein replied to Pierre Seguin's discussion Altitude wrong on one of my APM
"I am interested in this topic. My APM 2.0 does almost the exact same thing. I have never looked into it because I didn't think to compare it to anther APM. My friend has one, maybe I need to get them side by side and check."

Derek Ernewein replied to kstar's discussion Toronto Star story? in Canada
"I think that you would also benefit from posting on rccanada.ca for more general RC and multi rotor users. There are not that many drone/UAV users there, but lots of aerial photography and video people. They would likely have great stories about how…"

Derek Ernewein replied to theclam's discussion Wow - Thank you GPS/Telemetry!!!
"I love the way this was written.
However, do you know why the geofence didn't work? Why the altitude showed as -41'?
We should be able to use this to make sure that it never happens to anyone ever again.
Thanks again for your story!"

Derek Ernewein replied to Graham Dyer's discussion CH6 Tuning - working?
"I have not tried the Ch6 tuning before, but it sounds to me like you have Channel 6 set as a switch. This setting should be used with a dial/potentiometer, if you didn't know.
I will have to try out Ch6 tuning since I need to play with tuning anyway…"

Derek Ernewein replied to Dan Gray's discussion APMLogVisualizer Version 1.34
"Hey Dan,
Bug:
Add a value to the graph.
Maximise the Graph window
Result: The graph values disappear.

Bug: 
Scroll the time slider all the way to the right.
Result: You can get it to go 1 number higher than the maximum. This is more obvious in…"

Derek Ernewein replied to Derek Ernewein's discussion Cannot connect to APM2 - No RX light? *solved*
"Not that it matters, but Mission Planners I am using is v1.2.4 mav 1.0.
We also tried the Reset button on the board. It made no difference. I suspect a hardware issue."

Hello,I am helping a friend setup his quadcopter with APM2. We have updated it to 2.7.1. We calibrated ESCs, we configured the Transmitter. It flew okay with unbalanced props. We flew it this one time.We took the frame apart to move his ESCs inside…

Derek Ernewein replied to Kyle's discussion Too Much Oscillation, not stable
"Quickly flipping sounds very odd. Have you done the motor test to make sure that the motors are connected in the right places and the gyros are correcting correctly and nothing is backwards or rotated?
The motor test is generally something like…"

Derek Ernewein commented on leonardthall's blog post Head first into the deep end :)
"@Brian Boatright you can see the 3.5mm headphone style plug coming out of the GoPro at the top in the last picture. That is how you get video out on the GroPro and you can plug that into your Video Tx."

Derek Ernewein commented on Dan Gray's blog post APMLogVisualizer version 1.32, with C# Source
"Love the new feature of the mouse position slider in the Graph showing the real time values on the main window.

Derek Ernewein replied to ampilot's discussion Yaw tuning
"I have also had these same issues with slow yaw and lifting on yaw on my 1000mm quadcopter.
I should probably figure out how to pull down and compile to code and try out 2.6.1."

Derek Ernewein replied to Dan Gray's discussion Version 1.3 of APMLogVisualizer.... With Nice Graphs.
"Hey Dan,
Something I noticed while checking out some other people's logs I have seen on the 2.6 release thread. I noticed this while watching the motor output values for a quadcopter and I was trying to find which motors had higher output possibly…"
