I want to buy a Quadcopter with Ardupilor, or Pixhawk as the flight controller, and with Turnigy 9x receiver (i already have the trasmitter) which is RTF (ready to fly), or ATF (almost ready to fly). This means i won't have to do much assembling.I did a quick search online on HK and Banggood but there are no filters to check these requirements. Does anybody know any, or where can i search. If you point me the right way? Or if you know any such models available to buy i would be grateful for…See More

How to enable Auxiliary Channel Functionality.

Hello. I would like to enable various functionalities of the auxiliary channels, for example channel 7 and 8. I go to the Mission Planner and i set the Aux channel 7 to do a flip.On my Rc Transmitter (Turnigy 9x) i have set a stick for channel 7 functionality.Finally i have attached a cable from the Rc Receiver Channel 7 to the APM Input 7.Now all i have to do, to enable this functionality is to toggle the stick assigned to channel 7 on my transmitter.I do all the above but there is something…See More

APM telemetry port +Vcc voltage drops under load.

I have the APM 2.6 board. I want to power an external device (an MCU) using the telemetry port pins (which is basically a UART interface). The Vcc pin of this is rated at 5V, as i see with my multimeter. The MCU i want to connect is rated at 3.3V so i've made a resistor divider to adjust the voltage accordingly.I see that the open circuit voltage is fine at 3.35V. However when i insert the device the voltage drops to 0.647V! I don't know what is wrong with it. My device draws much less current…See More

"@Tim Dickinson The OP has the APM 2.8, which is a clone and it's different from APM 2.5,2.6 pin layout. @Hugh I don't see anything wrong with your configuration. I have APM 2.8 as well and i've done the same thing. You plug the…"

Nikos replied to Paul Atkin's discussion How to create an _immediate_ kill switch on PX4/APM?
"Yes i want this functionality(Motor Emergency Stop) on APM 2.x as well. In my opinion is a very useful feature for safety and should have been implemented on APM as a final mechanism as well."

Nikos replied to Jeffrey Foster's discussion Motor Emergency Stop not working
"I too had this issue. Randy has replied here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Db4u8LJE5w that motor emergency stop won't be supported for the APM 2.x boards. APM 3.2 was the last version for APM 2.x."
