"I have just torn down my gimbal and discovered that the board inside looks suspiciously like a STorM32 derivative.

I'm trying to see what the STorM32 project has in the way of software, may even try squirting some of their firmware in to my gimbal…"

"Tested my height following with lidar today. Passing close over my car ( noooooooo ) and even over me and it works beautifully. My only comment is that we need some indication of what is in charge of height,  ( as opposed to altitude ). An indicator…"

"I've learned very quickly to get the throttle stick centred before switching to Alt Hold! I think a delay on the switch and a centre stick reminder might be good. Time to tinker with my Taranis! :)"

ian Molesworth replied to Rnold's discussion Almost ruined my Pixhawk by pulling out connectors in PIXHAWK
"Nope, you are not the only one.

No more broken connectors and with…"
