Magnus Pettersson replied to Oliver Volkmann's discussion Stability Issues with APM2.6 Build

Magnus Pettersson commented on robert mcintosh's blog post Smaller is sometimes better.

Magnus Pettersson replied to Cam Donaghey's discussion APM 2.5 Arducopter - "Toilet Bowl" Effect? Help needed please.

"perhaps one of these http://www.rctimer.com/product_786.html and a kk2.0 board for Project A.
You will need a radio system too. I prefer futaba but most ppl at my local airfield use spektrum. I guess they work too (:. Buy an 8ch radio at minimum .…"

Magnus Pettersson replied to Monroe King's discussion Total noob to traditional heli!
"Heh, I am also looking at helicopters in addition to my quadcopter and tricopter.

Magnus Pettersson commented on Szilard's blog post APM 2.6 + GPS with compass
"@Weerts : http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/ExternalMag . That cut (step 2) is needed to use the compass on the new gps+combo board w. apm2.5. The GPS should to my understanding work without modifications.
