Trent replied to Mark Harrison's discussion How much time do I have to stabilize the gyros?
"check the lights on the board. If its solid amber its good to go (the IMU that is still have to wait for GPS lock).

Trent replied to Hai Tran's discussion Powering up APM on level surface
"put something under the tail to make it as level as possible. That will work.
Alternatively get a narrow box that fits the fuselage in with the wings on and let it rest in their while APM boots up (as in elevator and main wing the only thing…"

Trent replied to Magnus's discussion Navigation PID tuning question
"i had this exact same problem with a skyfun (which i lost because of this problem). I still haven't found a solution or received any advice on what it could have been. I have just setup a hawk sky with my new APM gear (with telemetry this time) but…"
