Terence Gronowski replied to Terence Gronowski's discussion Maiden Flight of ArduPilot Mega
"Problems solved: I sent the APM to DyDrones, they identified a weak solder joint I made. After a PPM-Upgrade of the Arduino Board the stabilize mode works perfect. As I destroyed the cable for Ublox GPS the maiden flight with the automatic mode has…"

Motor orientation is very important when flying in AUTO mode with ArduPilot Mega. The motor should look to the left in flight direction to compensate the drag of rotation. In the picture it is too few, so the plane tears to the right when the motor…

Terence Gronowski replied to Fred Briggs's discussion U-Blox troubleshooting
"Fred

You mostly only get a lock if you are under free sky.
Did you connect it with a correct cable that is branched with the arduino?
Did you configure APM_config.h APM_GPS_UBLOX?
In GCS-Test mode you should get a gps lock.…"

MAIDENING APMIm on the way to maiden APM. Last week the throttle did not work in the radio test with the APM_Config.h (I had from the Zip of the downloaded Beta Version). I doubled all the PID-Values in APM-Flight planner for rudder and…

"Maiden flight without damage, but some issues:

Airframe: Multiplex Easystar, rudder, elevon.

MANUAL mode works well.
STABILIZE mode, with the default PID gain settings very weak corrections.
LOITER mode, throttle goes to off, airplane turns to a…"

"Beta code works perfect!

All the issues with the alpha versions are solved.

Maiden flight may be this evening! In any case this week!"

"Anyone has an experience to branch it to ArduPilot Mega?"

Terence Gronowski commented on Chris Anderson's blog post ArduPilotMega Beta code now live!
"Just downloaded code, compiles well (no copying of the libraries folder necessary). Seems to run well in MANUAL, FLY_BY_WIRE_A and AUTO mode.

When I run it (electicity by usb) the LEDs A, B and C blink regularly alltogether. Is this ok and a sign…"

Terence Gronowski commented on RC Tech.se's blog post Testing the IMU
"II am at the same stage of testing. It is a good idea to put ublox to the window. When I test it with the alpha version it takes about 5 minutes until the red led is burning constandly. Once got the gps lock the servos react a bit slowly when…"
