"Just to clarify, the greaser is used for bearings on the helicopter drive train not the bearings in the glow engine. I have successfully used them in electric helicopters and cars. "

Whooper replied to Dan McKenna's discussion Lubrication..every 6 flights? in IRIS
"Don't know if this helps but I have successfully used the following on various RC bearings for a number of years. It works with very small to large bearings and no need to remove the shields. I think the product and recommended grease was aimed orig…"

Whooper replied to James Wheeler's discussion swerve problem in autopilot pixhawk
"Sounds similar to a problem I had. The steering servo rotated every time data packets were sent to the ground station from the vehicle. Solved it by using a different frequency data transmitter. I think the original transmitter was 433Mhz."

Whooper replied to Wang Robert's discussion Problem of APM 2.0 with its unstable sensor output while stationry
"Did you manage to fix this problem? I am having a similar issue. When the board is stationary on the bench (no GPS lock) the roll /pitch sensor output is stable. As soon as GPS gets a lock the pitch/roll sensor output becomes unstable and does not s…"

Whooper commented on Jordi Muñoz's blog post ArduStation Assembly Instructions
"Some of the chips need "Arduino Uno" selected as the board instead of "Arduino Duemilanove or Nano w/ AT mega 328""

"Confirmed the problem was in the 328 chip. Swapped it out for another and seems to work fine now."

"I confirmed the chip is the problem. I swapped the 328 out with one from a sparkfun arduino starter kit and this one works fine."

Whooper commented on Jordi Muñoz's blog post ArduStation Assembly Instructions
"I removed the chip from the board and attached the legs directly to the FTDI socket (leg 7 -> +5V, leg 8 -> -ve, leg 2 -> tx, leg 3 -> rx). Still doesn't work. Presumably I need a new chip?"

"yes I've selected "Duemilanove or Nano mega 328" and check all the solder joints. Could this be a boot loader problem?"

Whooper commented on Jordi Muñoz's blog post ArduStation Assembly Instructions
"I get the same error message and can't upload the code. I also tried programming with the xbee removed but doesn't help. FTDI cable is fine.
Also only the green PWR LED lights up (with xbee removed). With xbee connected the green and red are full on…"

Messages in the above posts suggest using a baud rate of 57600 however I don't see…"

"Konbanwa!
What do you fly and is your field close to Tokyo? I'm located in Meguro and mainly into UAV aircraft, although just started to fly a KKmulticopter.
