"Where is your APM board located, is it near the motor? There are magnets in the motor which may affect the magnetometer. Then the canopy is locked in place by two magnets, another possibility for error."

Picea replied to Robert M's discussion Mystery: Post crash need to throttle to 60%+ to start engine in the group ArduPlane User Group
"Damaged ESC? Did you already try to recalibrate throttle range? Weird things can happen in crashes. Try connecting a servo to APM output throttle channel, it should move along the throttle stick movement, if not the fault is in APM (settings?)."

"If you take the telemetry kit, you definitely need also an OTG cable for your SGS3! Bettre to have one with 90 deg angle. It is great fun (and usefull too) to listen altitude warnings etc. shouted from your phone, and it collects flight data too."

"Go ahead!. I'm not sure how typical user I am, but I have 5 different Android devices, and 4 of them are (updated if not otherwise) 4.x, the one that is not is in the drawer anyway."

"I tested my tube, and surprise surprise, it was leaking too. But it was not the top end but bottom where the two pipes are glued to the main tube. The glue was not good, it was kind of cracked and leaked. Easy to fix, just add more glue over. But…"

"Ok, it is a feature then, fine, I can live with that. Thanks a lot, I was thinking that there is some parameter or other settings causing this. I'm just used to rely on the tx/  rx fail-safe settings to prevent planes turning into loose…"

Motor starts up suddenly !

I just started a couple of week ago with Arduflier and APM 2.5 so this a newbie thing absolutely. Versions: Arduplane 2.7, Mission Planner 1.2.35 I have managed to do some flights, mostly still manual mode and a few short legs switching on the stabilize mode to see how it acts, so it flies and I can download logs etc.. But I'm having an unsolved problem with start up sequence. If I power the transmitter first and then the plane with APM, everything goes fine. But if I power the plane first,…See More

"I think I know what you mean. You want to keep full control for both ailerons, eg. crow for braking. Basic functions work ok, if you put Ail into APM RC 1 and Ail2 into APM RC 5 (as suggested), and set the advanced parameters  accordingly…"
