Neil Dawson replied to Bob Gann's discussion Help identifying these components
"Hi Bob

Your first picture, is of the Ardustation, link below:

It looks like it was never used as the X-Bee module and the holes for attaching the power have never been soldered?

Neil Dawson replied to Tamás L. Páll (Tom)'s discussion NOOB needs help: APM2.6-FW3.0.3 flying wing - I need tighter turn radious.
"Hi Tom
Sounds like your roll PID has not been set optimally hence the 45deg when 60 is the true limit. Nevertheless to achieve tighter turns, reduce NAVL1_period, until you achieve the radius you would like or until it starts weaving after the…"
