"I've been using the MP for a long time now.  The majority of my field use is on a CF-19 toughbook which has a maximum resolution of 1024x768.  This works well most of the time but due the to its low resolution some of MPs functions are clipped off…"

Jon C replied to nick's discussion DJI S800 with APM2.5
"I'm really interested in this too. I'm looking to buy an s800 for the build quality and lift capacity but I need the open source element of Arducopter. Did you need to do any tuning prior to this video at all? How do you power the APM from the S800?…"

"I had a similar problem with my 3DR and it turned out to be the version of MAVLink the Mission Planner was using.  The installer installs 2 versions of the planner.  One using MAVLink 0.9 and one using 1.0.  It runs 0.9 by default but there is a…"

Jon C commented on Andreas M. Antonopoulos's blog post Geo-Fencing for ArduCopter - Keep your copter "fenced in"
"This would definitely help me avoid a repeat of this!

I see the latest version (1.1.98) of the APM planner now includes a Geofencing section along with a link to the comprehensive Wiki docs.  However when I try to activate it I get the message…"
