"Thanks! I think I ended up with some good values, but then random changes didn't make me very confident."

"The way I've understood you should do it is: Setup and adjust. Land. Don't adjust your pot. Leave transmitter running. Connect. The value you now see in the adjustable field will be what your pot is now returning. Save this.Turn off the…"

PID Tuning with Channel 6 Problem

I am trying to do PID tuning using channel 6 and everything seems to be going ok, except when I reconnect to MP, the settings I am not tuning go back to default. For example, if I am tuning P with channel 6 and I save I as 0, when I reconnect after tuning, I is at .10. When I initially write and refresh the values, they appear to be saved correctly, but once I disconnect and reconnect to MP they get reset. Any help is appreciated.See More

Will this app work with one of these little cheap Bluetooth adapters? I haven't even checked to see if this can be connected to the APM, but I used it with a multiwii android app running on my nexus and it worked great. Thanks!See More

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I started OddCopter.com on November 15, 2011 to blog about my attempts to build and fly quadcopters/multicopters and share what I learn. I was a novice pilot who knew very little about radio controlled anything. I have learned a lot since then.

I have a little blog about my experiences with quadcopters called OddCopter.com. I have been so impressed by the recent feature enhancements and popularity of the APM2.5+ platform that I wanted to track down Chris Anderson and see if he would do an interview for my blog. He graciously accepted and here are the results:
