Would it be possible to add a current based compass compensation functionality like in ArduCopter 3.0's compassmot? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vZoPZjqMI4
I have moved the APM in Skysurfer as much as I can but I still see some…"
"Update: Much better alt-hold today when engaging alt-hold from a stable hover in a relatively wind free environment. The space was quite tight so I could not test Loiter.
I used AC3.0 rc4 which got published on Mission Planner today so that could…"
Hi,When I try to engage loiter or alt hold at about 3-4 meters above ground, the quad shoots up in the air as shown in the barometer altitude logs below. It does not drift too far out but gains about 20m of altitude immediately. There is medium wind…
Hi,After mounting the APM in a mounting pad from hobbyking I was able to get vibrations in the Z and the X axis to within +/- 5 and +/- 3 respectively (I applied small pieces of the pad on each corner of APM on the top and bottom and the APM sits…
"The documentation here definitely needs a lot more work. I just finished completing my first Quad and I too stumbled on these things.
Here's one page which has bits and pieces of the answer about connecting the ESC/PDB signal wires to the APM…"
"This is a very neat replacement for the whole mess of soldering the PDB and the ESC's which hang precariously on the arms of the quad and reduces the amount of wires significantly. I will try it out soon."
Maybe the solution to really long distances is to use 2G/3G/4G telemetry? One of the phonedrone cards and a mobile phone sitting on the plane acting as a missions planner. I guess the SW is not there yet.
"Yes, I do understand the risk of going beyond the range of telemetry control.
I just wanted to understand what are the limitations. No way am I going to try this now (I'm just getting started with APM), but maybe in the future :)"
Hi,Is it possible to upload the waypoint info to APM once at startup (using mission planner) and then let it complete the mission without (or beyond the range) of the telemetry system?I think it should be possible. I just cant find any documentation…
Hi,I'm trying to connect the 3DR Radios to my Arduino Uno board to do wireless communication.My first example is a simple echo code which just echoes the data back. But the echo does not work. When I type something on the terminal I see the Tx (red…
