Tom Busey replied to Tom Busey's discussion Strange output on uBlox LEA-6H GPS
"I solved this problem. I didn't disable the primary gps on the apm 2.0 with the solder drop:
I also forced the ublox gps to be detected by turning off autodetection."

Tom Busey replied to Hawhoo's discussion Why is Handling and Shipping from DYI Dornes so slow?
"I'd like some advice from the community about problems I've had with the 3DRobotics shipping department. The whole process has been a complete fail and they are so unresponsive that I feel compelled to try to seek help from a public forum.

Tom Busey commented on Paul Mather's blog post ArduIMU 1.8.1 Posted
"This is great. The two things I found most confusing when working with this code was how to set the flags and why we have to divide and multiply things like the altitude and ground speed by 100. HappyK's emulator makes it incredibly easy to debug,…"

Tom Busey replied to Ritchie's discussion Flight modes
"Does anyone know if it is possible to add more than three modes to the control modes? I have a proportional dial on channel 7 on my hitec eclipse 7 and I would love to be able to do manual, stabilize, waypoints and RTL on the same flight."
