Redemptioner replied to Fong Hou Jun's discussion Hovering without transmitter
"The easiest way to do it is via the Transmitter, the actual procedure is different depending on which brand you have but basically you set the Transmitter up how you want the aircraft to go if it loses signal (ie. put throttle to middle, all other…"

"you can do it over the telemetry link if you have it, else you can set a failsafes to do it (either on the RX or in the APM itself)."

Redemptioner replied to HN's discussion Is this a good kit for ArduPlane?
"should fly well, that motors is more than big enough  and there are plenty of ready to go settings for the Bixler setup on APM.

Only thing I would be looking to do is get some bigger batteries, the air frame will happily lift 10,000mah of 3S…"

Redemptioner commented on Bart Theys's blog post Design of a multi-rotor VTOL UAV and docking station for automated aerial transport
"And completely missed the point of this project as usual.
Putting aside the fact that this was a project for VTOL aircraft that was "optimized for maximum range and payload capability"  (the simple fact is a fixed wing aircraft is far more economic,…"

"Great work guys! Can't wait to see more from you

Don't let rob's comments concern you, he has shown a clear history of being unable to understand even the most basic principles of aerodynamics and aircraft design and construction....."

"Hey Guys,

I have found an issue with the quad software that needs to be looked at please.
I have been mucking around trying to work out why I am not getting full power out of my quad (CF reptile deadcat frame running Sunnysky 2216 900kc on 3S and…"

Redemptioner replied to Randy's discussion AC-3.1 autotune support discussion
"Hey Guys,

A few pages back I questioned the "I" settings being the same as the "P" settings after auto tune, not having a go at the devs but the reply was more or less that these don't really matter much. I found this odd especially having run APM…"

Redemptioner replied to Randy's discussion AC-3.1 autotune support discussion
"Hey Guys, 

Firstly let me just say Auto Tune ROCKS!

Just thought I would mention that auto tune does not like it when you increase the sensor rate above default (20hz).

I have less than 0.02 vibration on my 1300mm Octo and less 0.25 vibration on…"

"Hey guys,

Been using APM for a many years now and finally got around to putting one on a sporty quad (use them on my professional rigs as well as planes). It has all the bells and whistles (over 4kg of thrust from sunnysky motors on 11x5 CF props,…"

Redemptioner commented on Jason Short's blog post Getting ready for Arducopter 3.0
"Correct, if you don't want accuracy you can dial down the sample rate and the vibration won't affect you but you will not get the same level of accuracy. Take all the vibration out and have the sample rate as high as possible and your multicopter…"

Redemptioner commented on Stefan Gofferje's blog post MF450 quad maiden - still a few problems
"can you put some pictures up of your setup, I would hazard a guess and say the board is getting far too much vibrations, a little vibration goes a long way on small frames and this is increase with overpowered motors. Grab some Moongel and mount…"
