About Me:

Plenty of time on the R/C plane simulator and I've learnt to fly the real thing (R/C that is). Built my trainer from a kit and currently working on putting together my first low wing kit.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I've gotten interested through following UAV Outback Challenge online.

Warren Osborne replied to Wayne's discussion Easy Star Question
Interesting. With the long boom, the motor behind the CG and most of the battery weight there too I would have thought the CG would have be well aft of what they recommend as the appropriate position - 78mm from the leading edge if memory…"

Warren Osborne replied to Wayne's discussion Easy Star Question
"Hi Wayne. Hope your Easy Star build is going okay.
The plane's CG is a bit of a balancing act. You'll need to try and redistribute weight to maintain the CG of your plane. For the Easy Star that's not necessarily easy (no pun intended) and as you…"

Warren Osborne replied to Al Ros's discussion Magnetometer "disabled"
Did you do a "compass on" from the setup menu? I was having similar troubles - could test the compass using the code from the examples folder but kept getting a compass disabled message from the APM 2.x software. Then I discovered I needed to…"

"My understanding of it is, you should be right as long as the pitot tube is not affected by disturbed air flowing around the fuselage (or wing) of your plane. So keep it a little away from the plane's body wherever you put it. That's why its toward…"

"Folks, here's my recent experience with putting an APM on a nitro plane. Its mounted in my OS46AX powered trainer and it looks like its working quite well. Tried doing some datalogging a couple of weeks ago but stuffed it up. Today was much better.…"

Warren Osborne replied to Simon Clements's discussion Underwater glider UUV with Ardupilot
