"First I must ask, why bother with one of those. Do you have thermopile sensors or a imu sensor board. I flew one of these a back in those days. Had 3 axis thermopile and GPS and 2 way telemetry. I may still have a copy of the firmware that I…"
"I am not sure what the cut off point for running on APM. Old hardware is fine and 3.2 I think is the last or close to the last version. You have to find your real problem. Look for loose connections and also for little whiskers or stray wire stands…"
"Your log contains almost no information. The only thing being logged is attitude and RCin. Not much to go on. I don't even see a crash at the end. You RCin just end with the sticks not centered, so that tells me that the log just ended mid…"
"If the throttle/engine works in manual mode it will work in auto. Have you set up your ICE_ parameters yet. That may be it. The behavior I described is for an electric plane. With an ic engine you would start it in manual unless you have an electric…"
"That is normal behavior. I manual and fbwa the throttle is directly controlled by the pilot. In all other modes the pixhawk controls the throttle and it knows it is not flying so it doesn't run the motor, with the exception of an auto takeoff…"
"Hello David, I have already done what you were trying to do an it does work. I have a 3 axis gimbal with a Storm controller. The only input I have wired is RC on the tilt. I control cam tilt with a TX pot or the AP can take control of…"
"I like the Storm32 controller. You can get one for ~70 - 80 USD from China, that's with a gopro sized gimbal! I haven't really used other types. There's lots of gimbals that size for ~ $200, if you want motor encoders you will…"
Hey Greg ! It hit me while I was sleeping tonight and woke me up ! Getting baby scale is an Excellent idea! not just to weigh the plane but if I get one that shows ounces and fraction of ounces I can weigh each item and figure it's moment before I put it in the plane and help figure the best spot for it from the COG + or - and keep the trimming ballast to a minimum. the rest of the plane will be foam I have been looking at power plants and might do Something Novel ? I am aiming for a take off weight of 4 1/2 to 5 pounds if I get a power plant out of something 7 to 10 pounds it should be lots Thanks! Have a Great Day!
I read your posts that you have made a camera gimbal stabilizer. I work on Arduplane source code, with the APM-1 board, attaching 2 servo to work out solution for 2-axis stabilizer. It will be helpful if you could share your source so that I can have a look at it to get a better idea !
