I installed a PixHawk Mini on a quad and am having some interesting problems when I throttle up.  The motors all oscillate and the quad vibrates terribly.  I've flown this quad with these motors and speed controls before with know issues.  Anyone kn…

Jimmy Prouty replied to Jimmy Prouty's discussion Help with Y6 Setup/APM 2.6
"Got it figured out.  The instructions have been outdated by the firmware for the APM.  I had to reconfigure how the motors are numbered since the Y6 has been replaced by the Y6B.  All's good now.

Hi All,I'm setting up my first non-fixed wing APM and need some help.  I've setup the APM and speed controls on my 3DR Y6 (2013) and went through all of the calibration.  Had to reverse the ailerons to get the radio calibration correct on the calibr…

"Are there any discussions on using them for planes?  Almost all of the data that I've seen is for quads.  Really interested in development of a pitot static system for airspeed."

Jimmy Prouty replied to Jimmy Prouty's discussion APM Elevon Mixing Problem
"Well, I unplugged everything and reassembled it to make sure that I had all the plugs in the right places.  I have proper control with RC and in AUTO but ailerons are still reversed in FBWA.  I have no idea how this could be but no matter what I can…"

Hi All,I'm using a DX18 to fly a plane with an APM 2.5 but I can't get the elevons to mix properly.  I set them up on the radio and not matter what I do they don't move in the proper direction in FBWA mode.  I tried switching the channels where the…

Hi All,I have two MinimOSDs that I'm having issues with.  I have them hooked up to an APM 2.5 and have split the telemetry wires to go to my 3DR radio and the MinimOSD (diagram attached.)  I can get video from the OSDs but one says UPDATE CHARSET an…

"Should have mentioned where I saw it.  3DRs store says "Pixhawk orders are expected to begin shipping in December 2013.""

"Didn't word that last sentence properly.  "What are the benefits of having a PixHawk for fixed wing/vertical photography purposes over the APM 2.5" is what I should have said.  :P"

Jimmy Prouty commented on PX4's blog post PX4 and 3D Robotics present Pixhawk: An Advanced, User-Friendly Autopilot
"My use for the PixHawk would be for vertical photography for a fixed wing airframe.  It seems that the airspeed option won't be available for a while "if at all" and they don't know if it will trigger cameras either.  Really confused that this "upgr…"

Hi All,Been through the documentation and can't find any info on it.  Does anyone know if it's possible to control a pan/tilt system through APM 2.5 with or without stabilization while in autonomous mode?  Thanks for your help,Jimmy

"Had an interesting problem today.  The guys were flying an F2 with an APM 2.5 running 2.74b.  First flight went fine but on the second flight the plane rolled inverted and they weren't able to recover before a minor crash (repairable.)  Not sure why…"
