"Hi Menno,
Here are my current settings obtained via the auto tune function.
Roll and pitch rates seem quite ok.So as you suggested is to turn down the stab_P for roll and pitch."

"Hi guys,
I created a small quad (F450 frame based) for a friend with an apm 2.5 (FW 3.1)As he is just starting out I wanted to make the apm a little less aggressive on the lean angle.By default this is 45°, so I want to reduce this to about 30° (nic…"

Jan commented on Hugues's blog post Alexmos brushless gimbal PID settings : share them with the community
"@William,
On this frame I had no video TX. However on my TBS discovery I use a separate small 3S lipo. I prefer to keep the power source for my quad dedicated to the motors and main controller.
You do not need 12V as all comes down to the quality of…"

"Hi William,
Thank you for the positive feedback.
The gimbal controller is running from a 2S battery without BEC.So far this seem to work quite well.The quad is running on a 4S battery which is too high for the gimbal controller and brushless motors.…"

"I had a go today with my F450 test frame.
Today the wind was quit gusty so ideal for some 3.1 testing.
I must say I was (am) impressed.The quad behaved without any problem in winds.Loiter was spot on and RTL worked flawless.Nice job to the developer…"

"@ArthurI don't know if it has been asked before but now that bluetooth connection is available would it be possible to also select the bluetooth device from the list of available devices?The reason why I ask is that I had a couple of bluetooth devic…"

Inspired by the info from Arthur Benemann I created my 3DR - bluetooth bridge.Details from Arthur at: https://github.com/arthurbenemann/droidplanner/wiki/How-to-connectThe power for both modules comes from a 2S lipo that is connected to a Ubec with…

Jan replied to Ben's discussion Beginning tests using Mavlink
"Hi,

I wanted to create a Mavlink2Spektrum telemetry module where an Arduino captures the mavlink data and sends it via a TM1000 (Spektrum telemetry I²C).
However I'm struggling to get the Mavlink decoding working on my Arduino UNO or NanoI started…"

"Hi,
Here are my settings for the Alexmos with GoPro camera.
Gimbal is fully balanced for the GoPro.


This is a first video made with the gimbal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNbdxLGJ_nY
The chase was a little bit hard as it was done 'on sight'."

"Euan,
Thank you for the info.
I was already considering of moving the apm more to the front allowing more space to move my battery to the front.
Cheers"

Jan commented on Euan Ramsay's blog post TBS Disco - APM mounting suggestion
"Euan,
I noticed you mounted the APM quite in front of the frame allowing you to slide the battery furhter to the front.
Doesn't it give a problem since the APM is not quite in the Cog of the frame?
Another question... The black rubber piece where th…"

Jan commented on Euan Ramsay's blog post TBS Disco - first flight report
"Euan,
I agree with ikrase, better of with a 4S battery makes a lot of difference. Had the same issue when using 3S.I'm also using a 4S one in my setup (MT2213-935KV, 20A simonK esc, DJI 10x3.8 props)"
