Remi replied to John Mulligan's discussion Px4 Testing

I run ardupilot software on a px4fmu + px4io on an hexa with no problem on following modes : stabilize, alt hold and loiter. I wanted to try the guided mode but I run into problems. I programmed it on CH5 and tried it with a GPS lock and a…"

I just received a px4fmu + px4io I ordered from 3drobotics. I succeeded flashing them with APM V3.0.0-rc1 using QUpgrade and connecting to the px4 system using MissionPlanner 1.2.50 via USB. All of this on an Ubuntu 13.04 (I compiled QUpgrade…"

Remi replied to Remi's discussion Can I use the FTDI cable shipped with my 433 3DRadio to update my minimosd ?

Remi replied to Remi's discussion problem with my builtin MediaTek MT3329 (APM2)

I think I solved the problem. I mounted my receiver on an arm like Mike's, added a ferrite coil on the APM to receiver power cable, added an ubec to power the APM and I had a flight with a GPS 3d fix. I had to add an ubec because the GPS was…"

Hi,I've recently purchased an APM2 with a builtin GPS. It is mounted in a HK Turnigy Talon v2 quadcopter. I've had a few flight in stabilize mode and it works well but I cannot get a GPS fix. The blue leds on the dautherboard and on the main board…

Remi replied to Adam's discussion New Quad Build All tips welcome!!!
"Hi Adam,

I'm about to build a similar quad configuration, with a Turnigy Talon v2 frame + an APM2. I currently have 4 XPower 2812/20 motors from a previous project but maybe I will change for other motors if these are not powerful enough. So I'm…"
