Zidlov replied to Chris Anderson's discussion APM 2.5 Parameters Reset after Writing
"Having the same problem of a not-updating MinimOsd I tried to change the data rates in the Planner setup screen you said, but after a powerdown and reconnect to the Mission Planner the values are reverted to the old values. Same as when I change…"

Zidlov replied to FlyHigh's discussion Welp with telemetry over Orange LRS?
"What about the Ultimate LRS "branch"? It supports the 1W orangerx module from HK as both rx and tx. Does the gitsly branch work on those , too? If yes, which one should be preferred, what are the differences? Ultimate LRS says on it's homepage it's…"

Zidlov commented on Stefan Olofsson's blog post APM Planner 2.0 RC2 on Raspberry Pi
"Successfully installed qt5 from binaries, but then I found out that I'd need qt5-make etc., so the binaries for qt5 alone don't help. Installing qt5 from source seems to be a major pita, as you can either compile it on the Raspi, which will take…"

Zidlov replied to Robert Wells's discussion WP Speed Question
"Been trying to get this set, too for a while, and I just can't believe that there's NO documentation about this, nor anyone in the know how to set this right.
Imho, in Mission Planner, all the values should have units written out beside the input…"

Zidlov commented on Artūrs's blog post Controlling the speed of automated missions in real time with UgCS
"Mixed up the actual name of the function. It's called WPS_Speed. You can find it in the dropdown list for ch6 options. I remember testing it about two years ago and it worked well, apart from the fact that I crashed because I thought it was a good…"

Zidlov commented on Artūrs's blog post Controlling the speed of automated missions in real time with UgCS
"What's the difference between this feature and the already implemented possibility to control Nav_Speed with a knob on channel 6?
If one wanted, one could a mix in the radio to output the throttle stick on channel 6 when auto-mode is engaged.…"

Zidlov commented on Thomas J Coyle III's blog post When it Comes to Drones, the Sky is the Limit
""...keep the peace [by] (...) dispersing pepper spray." ? You gotta be kidding me.
Ah, got you, you mean "peace" - as in "go back to sleep, stupid" or "you've got the right to do as we tell you".
Sounds convincing."

Zidlov replied to Alex's discussion AHRS_ORIENTATION and COMPASS_ORIENT
"Didn't want to open a new thread. Hopefully someone still reads it anyway...:)
Is there a possibility to set a custom AHRS_Orientation value?
For example, 12 degree pitch forward...Would like to tilt my motors for better forward flight capability…"

Zidlov commented on Greg Dronsky's blog post FPV gimbal for zoom camera
"For the zoom cameras without integrated rc-control, you can use this cam controller circuit.
You have to solder it yourself, but it's not a big deal and I have it successfully working on my 27xzoom cam.
Oh yeah, I used these instructions to…"

Zidlov replied to Tony Coppock's discussion FOLLOW ME MODE in Andropilot Users Group
"Is FollowMe working again with Andropilot? Haven't used Andropilot in a while and would be interested in trying out the control through tilting the phone again, but had one crash trying this last summer and would like to have it confirmed working…"

Zidlov replied to Rolf Blomgren's discussion APM MavLink to FrSky X8R S.Port converter
"But the Taranis doesn't talk mavlink. Although there's this project here, you then can only view the telemetry data on your android but not use droidplanner.
To use droidplanner, you would first need to retranslate the Taranis intern frsky protocol…"

Zidlov commented on Jeff Taylor's blog post Tablet Ground Station via Bluetooth Telemetry Bridge
"Are you trying to connect the usb pins directly to the bluetooth module? Because that won't work. You need to connect to the tx/rx pins directly. If you use the ground radio with the usb connector you have to somehow bypass the usb-part and connect…"

Zidlov replied to Rolf Blomgren's discussion APM MavLink to FrSky X8R S.Port converter
"Sorry if I didn't make it clear enough. What I mean is putting another teensy/arduino mini/etc. board as well as a bluetooth board into the Taranis transmitter to re-translate the frsky-telemetry back to mavlink and from there to serial, so we could…"

Zidlov replied to Rolf Blomgren's discussion APM MavLink to FrSky X8R S.Port converter
"What about the reverse to this mod? Converting from Frsky protocol back to mavlink and then get the tx rx lines out to a bluetooth module to connect to it using Droidplanner?
Or is the problem that the tx through Frsky protocol doesn't work and…"

"Would also be very interested in a solution. Found someone who said he did it , but forgot how and that the files for that are on his old computer that he doesn't own anymore....:/
When I bought my zoom camera I didn't know that there  are…"
