"Well it will save you money in the long run. Sounds like you're throwing away batteries which is never cheap! Spend some money on a good charger and your batteries will love you.

Never over discharge your batteries past 80-90%"

"Get a better charger! I would recommend using an Icharger, 308DUO or 410DUO would do the job."

I did a few test flights with my phone using follow Me Mode. One problem I can't seem to get the copter to go faster than 5 meters per second in that mode. I would have thought that Loiter and or WPNAV speed would directly effect how fast follow me…

"Looks like mine was set to Face along GPS course. That explains the weird circling and also some weird tail movement when in Auto mode. 

Running 3.2 on Tradheli. 

Another question is there a way to slow the copter down before getting the last wp?…"

Has anyone used guided mode? I was trying it out today and all is good until it gets to the target from there it wants to spin around in a circle like it's lost. Maybe I missed something but is there a setting to change the behavior of the AC when i…

"Just wanted to add a small note. 

I replaced my YGE ESC for a Kontronik ESC and the tail wag is now gone! I have been fighting that tail wag for a long time. My guess is that the YGE has a hard time with its governor mode. You could here it pulsing…"

Anyone running a gimbal on their helicopter?Curious if someone found the best route for taking vibration out of the camera while in flight and in a hover? Care to share?

"Robert, 

Tell me if this works. 
I am running the APM power module to power my Pixhawk then after the power module I have my BEC to power my servos. Is this right?
