Using Mission planner to change altitude

I want to take pictures at specific heights using waypoints.

I would like to add several waypoints in Mission planner, with specific altitudes, and trigger camera shutter between each waypoint. Then upload waypoints to APM. Out in the Field I want to

Can I trust Arducopter?

Hi guys!

I've been away from the Arducopter community for around 2 years now. I never got the early APM1.x to work stable, so I've been using other FC's the last couple of years.

Do you think the newest Arducopter is a stable/solid solution now? Is it

I guess I have to do this by changing code? Probably one of thes

Everything seemed ok. I tested stabilize, alt hold, loiter and rtl. After a couple of batteries the qu

Loiter/gps hold PID settings

Loiter sometimes works ok, but often the quad keeps overshooting, making bigger and bigger circles. So I have to help it sometimes getting "back on track". Should I increase or decrease PID settings?

Stick center/drift problem

2.0.19 quad X

The quad flies ok in stable mode when I trim the sticks, it hovers perfectly for a while. But after short time, the center of the sticks is not neutral anymore. After a while, max stick input is almost not enough to keep the quad straigh
