About Me:

I work at parkeflyer.com. We sell RC Transmitters and accessories to pilots who want access to the best technology for a really low price.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I like all things that fly. I'm building my first UAV based on ArduPilot.

Thomas Gregg replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter-3.0.1 released!
"Excellent work on 3.0.1. It is amazing!  I use SimonK ESCs and I'm still getting some twitch and wandering in Loiter. It is significantly better than 3.0r1

Thomas Gregg replied to Jamie Glover's discussion Skywalker Param File WANTED

I flew today with a Sky Walker 1.6, ArduPlane 2.65 and the standard SkyWalker param file. I had the exact same problem. Bank left and descend. In manual mode everything is perfectly trim. I tried to level multiple times, but it didn't change…"

"Neo, This is definitely not what you want!. I'd start experimenting with your throttle curve. Finless Bob is the throttle curve guru over at helifreak.com. He has multiple videos on the topic. They aren't quad specific, but the same concept…"

Thomas Gregg replied to Scott Dominick's discussion Help get me started... a few questions.
"Hey Scott... Welcome the the club. RC in generally (and especially UAVs) require quite a bit of gear (some have truckloads). You can be smart about it, though.

Thomas Gregg replied to Tony H's discussion Turnigy 9x VS Hobby King 7x
"I second the Turnigy 9x (or the FS-TH9x which is the same). A company named FlySky is the original factory. HobbyKing rebrands this as the Turnigy 9x. The only difference other than color and label is HobbyKing places the antenna in the traditional…"
