Luke replied to Randy's discussion Copter-3.3 beta testing
"I've been working on lighting as well. I've kept everything together on one Teensy because I want to pull the telem stream to create status-interactive lighting (e.g. pulse red at low batt, reflect flight mode, etc). I've also added PWM input so I…"

Luke replied to Cody O.'s discussion ArduCopter 2.9.1 Runaway on Auto-Takeoff
"Sorry about the bad flight!
Grab something like this http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__14521__Hobby_King_Discovery_... and hook it to an unused channel if possible. Great for locating tree-dwelling copters."

I had initially thought my twitchy/jerky pitch problem…"

I'm running 2.6 Delta on a pretty standard tricopter. In stabilize mode I get a mostly rock solid hover. However, every 20 to 30 seconds, even when I'm just hovering 6ft AGL, there's a pretty large hiccup or twitch where the rear motor slows…

Luke replied to Lloyd DeForrest's discussion Flight Modes: Can I configure a "SImple FPV" mode?
"If you're truly flying FPV and not looking at both a screen and the craft line-of-sight at the same time, Mike's right; fly stabilize mode and then you're fully "driving" from the craft's perspective and left is always left, etc.
But if you're…"
