"Are you all using stock motor and servos?  If so, what do you use for PID's?"

Vishal replied to Euan Ramsay's discussion Various alt loss scenarios on alt hold, auto and loiter
"On my copter, I put black electrical tape on the top of the 2.5 case.  This prevents light leaking on to the baro sensor.  Without the tape, my copter will dip down several feet with certain angles of sunlight. Of course, since yours is doing this…"

Vishal replied to u4eake's discussion APM 2.5 with NEO-6M ublox gps (not 3DR LEA-6)
"I was able to get the settings changed and the when I connect it to the apm2.5, it gets a fix. However, as soon as it gets a 3D fix, the artificial horizon in Mission Planner moves a little on it's own while the apm is still and also the altitude…"

Vishal commented on Matt Gunn's blog post How to trigger a Canon camera through an RC transmitter
"Roger, I believe Matt is correct that the camera must be on to use the requested command. 

However, I've been looking into how to control lens retraction with CHDK.  You could just leave the camera on but have a script to extend and retract the…"

Vishal commented on Kevin Hester's blog post Android Ground Controller, alpha release
"This looks to be a great tool!  I'm very interested in purchasing an inexpensive Android device to run this on. Any suggestions for a device that would work well with this app yet cost under $200?  I don't mind buying a used one if needed. Thanks…"

Vishal commented on Matt Gunn's blog post How to trigger a Canon camera through an RC transmitter
"To my understanding, you can setup different functions at different pulse widths.  So, a specific pulse width could trigger the shutter.  A different pulse width could zoom the lens, switch to a different photo mode, etc. "

Vishal commented on Matt Gunn's blog post How to trigger a Canon camera through an RC transmitter
"The power via usb is to trigger the camera shutter.  One of the many functions of CHDK is that it allows you to use the usb port to trigger the camera shutter since most of these small cameras don't have infrared triggers.  So once you have CHDK…"

Vishal commented on Matt Gunn's blog post How to trigger a Canon camera through an RC transmitter
"Great video! CHDK is very nice indeed!  I've been using it for a while now for triggering the shutter.  What I'd like to do next is figure out the scripting to retract the lens for landing and go into the photo review mode on the camera all using…"

Vishal replied to Neil Baker's discussion Point and shoot camera with video out?
"I have an older Canon point and shoot camera with CHDK on it (SD750). The problem I experienced with it is it won't allow video out and the usb port to be used for triggering at the same time. When I hook up both, it keeps taking a photo every…"

Vishal replied to Roger Larsen's discussion Impossible to get 1 hour flight with current technology?
"I have the RC Timer 4215 650kv motors and would like to use the carbon fiber 15"x5.5 propellers mentioned in this thread. But what would be the best way to mount the propellers to the motors? These motors have a three point prop adapter so I can't…"

Vishal replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter 2.7.2/2.7.3 released
"I just put 2.7.3 on my hexa.  So far I'm very impressed with this release!

I simply loaded the code on it.  I didn't alter any pid's whatsoever and the hexa is flying rock solid.  In my backyard it has very steady althold and loiter works within 3…"

I've been wanting to check wind handling capability with my old quadcopter which I use for testing purposes. The problem is that it's been very calm for wind speeds here for the past month.  But today was a great opportunity.  I checked the weather…
