"Also my pixjawk is in a Sig Senorita 3 channel plane. When I originally set it up I simply put the rudder on the aileron channel. It seemed to work. Should I do that differently now? I see some things in the params on that but not sure how to set th…"

"Hi there everybody. I have been out of the loop so to speak for 2-3 years. I have the original pixhawk. It's running 3.7.1 ... should I update the FW?? Is there a limit to the versions I should not go beyond with my older Pixhawk? Thanks"

"I have a 4 RFD 900's [ the 1 watt version ]  from about 3-4 years ago. Would there be any advantage to me updating the FW say for better range?? "

Richard Kennedy replied to Sriram's discussion Pixhawk Stability in PIXHAWK
"I have noticed this myself. I don't know what it is but I swear it's not just my imagination. Perhaps the first flight the gps takes longer to acquire than subsequent flights. Or the compass when set to auto adjust or what is it?.... auto declinatio…"

What's the best method to connect a 3dr radio [ eBay version ] with a  df-13 socket to usb [ pc ] ?? I need to set up one in MP and cannot see how to connect to my pc. The last time I did this several years ago it had the pins for the FTDI cable but…

"I think this is the log. The time is says doesn't make sense so I'm not %100 sure. I sure don't see anything on here that looks even remotely close to 60 mph??? I swear that's what it said on my Taranis... perhaps it's a related issue.. I thought th…"

"Okay so if I recall it was aimed north when it was armed and heading south probably west / south-west by 2000-4000 feet or so when I looked down and noticed the arrow outside the box. As I recall the bearing / the direction the arrow was pointing ge…"

"Well... as a matter of fact I did note that going with a stiff breeze I was going 60 mph with my quad. That's probably a bit faster than normal however not exceptionally unusual for a plane. Thanks for looking into it.

"Hi Paul
I flew my quad yesterday W/ arducopter 3.4 and open TX 2.0... not sure what the triangular shaped thing is called on the far right in the main screen but anyway it works great except it managed to get almost %100 out of the screen. It does a…"

Richard,
The telemetry screen uses the 'Alt' telemetry sensor, so you need to check that this sensor has been configured correctly as per the wiki (https://gith…"

"I did get it back to normal thx! Guess I'll need to ask over at the apm forum what they are using to calculate altitude. Maybe they use a combo of baro and gps to come up with a more accurate reading that just the baro. It's like it way too sensitiv…"
