"Were you by chance using the T'rex motor controller? If so, how did you disable skid steering? I am looking at the RC Mode INO but can figure out what needs to be changed.

John replied to Randy's discussion AC-3.1 autotune support discussion
"Ok, I used auto tune today for a "normal" quad and it worked great! I have awesome position hold now. But, I then tried it on my X8 and it didn't work. I got a couple twitches but then it refused to do anymore. I think the problem is that I am…"

John commented on Arthur Benemann's blog post [Update] DroidPlanner v0.9.0
"I have Droid Planner setup on my tablet and working great. I also got a small bluetooth keyboard so it is really easy to navigate. But, the main reason I wanted to use this was to assign different functions to channel 6 so I can tune my…"

John replied to Guy McCaldin's discussion Disappointing customer service. Slow order fulfillment, wrong item sent, 3DR wants me to pay to resolve the issue.
"I have had a similar experience. I placed an order and got an email that the shirt I ordered wasn't available. I replied and said that is fine, just credit me back for the shirt and ship the order. I got the credit and thought everything was…"

John replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter-3.0.1 released!
"I am running 3.01 (not an RC) and tried autotune today and it would not engage. I saw that RC4 had an issue with it engaging but didn't see anything about 3.01 having an issue. Anyone have any suggestions on what to check? I have it on channel 7 and…"

John replied to John's discussion About to give up (Trim constantly changes, Radio calibration wont "stick"
"Ok, I just updated my MP and rebooted (it had been awhile since I rebooted) and recalibrated the radio and it seems to have fixed the calibration issue. After a couple power cycles it seems to be working now.

Now I just need to figure out the trim…"

So I have been struggling with 2 issues with my APM on an X8.1. After recently resetting to defaults and starting over, the APM will not remember my radio calibration. Regardless of how many times I try, it says it has completed but when I try to…

John replied to Gábor Zoltán's discussion Adding extra functions to MinimOSD
"Ok, I updated my character set but this still remains. Any ideas?

Edit: I reset to defaults and selected only one item to show and it seems to have fixed the issue. If it comes back as I add items I will post back."

John replied to Oxxy Fx's discussion Trim changes when switching from Stabilized to Acro
"Did you get this resolved? I am having the same issue. I need a ton of back trim or in stabilize it flies forward. In acro it flies back slightly with the trim set correctly for stabilize. I have tried save trim etc with the same results."

John replied to John's discussion APM won't remember RC calibration
"I think I figured it out. I have Rssi connected to a0 but didn't specify that in the software. Once I changed that it seems to be sticking now."
