Markus Järve commented on Markus Järve's blog post X4 first maiden
"John, I ripped the module off board and only use bat inp, gnd and output voltage. The regulator is 3A capable based on generic switching IC. I have pots on that for voltage adjustment and some super glue to keep the pots in place. Output is +/-…"

Markus Järve commented on Markus Järve's blog post X4 first maiden
"to answer the kolin question, the pixhawk and ardupilot are 1000 times better than micropilot. (not only on quads but to my experience on planes as well) And DO NOT ever underestimate the power of ublox module that 3DR has created. Micropilot does…"

Markus Järve posted a blog post
2years ago I worked at a job that needed me to configure different quadcopters on different autopilots. I have done ap and micropilot etc.  After quitting the job for various reasons I bought a 3Drobotics quad kit with ardupilot.  Now since I have…

Markus Järve replied to MikeRover's discussion AHRS Orientation and Compass Orientation help
"Have you gotten it to work? I am working on building a copter atm but I would like to know about how hard it would be to set px4 sideways. (Mechanical design is such that the size of px4 creates a requirement for it to be sideways to flight…"

Markus Järve replied to Barry Nash's discussion Altitude hold drops slowly then shoots up full throttle
"just to go to the interesting thing, i get nice altitude hold (soft 3.0 rc6) for a while, ad it goes full throttle at random moment. I had 3 min hold and throttle up then and also a 7 min alt hold before it tried to fly away... "

Markus Järve commented on Andreas's blog post Drone shot down by police
"Idea was good, i agree that filming such events must be done. Air gives more ways and less danger to the guy filming. BUT as the video making was done, It was quite careless. Not only from the crowd safety but also from the not getting shot down…"

Markus Järve commented on Alberto Casu's blog post ZuCopter - FullAuto Test #1 including copter flyaway - recovered :)
"Very nice controlling while things were bad. This is why dev work needs to  be done by one that knows how to fly manual. Love the way you recovered. "

Yesterday the quad-copter started to twitch. At first i guessed that one of the motors has to be going  bad. After I looked at logs, I found out that input pwm is horribly amiss. The pich input is like shown in the log at attachment. It stops being…

Markus Järve replied to Jay Butera's discussion How to calibrate ESCs without a radio in ArduCopter User Group
"Do not do a first flight without RC control. 
You can calibrate with mavlink but first flight without RC is rather dangerous and if you have little mis-configuration, your copter will fly away, flip, start a fire or just crash. 
If you are asking…"

Markus Järve commented on ilana rothman's blog post Chris Anderson speaks at Serendipity about the future of personal drones
"Yes, I understand the problem of safety. I was pointing out that mostly when doing any design, first priority is to get it working. It takes time. Especially for large project like this in what very few programmers are paid. 
And sawmill has its…"
