Spike Webb replied to Bartek Sad's discussion Bad AHRS - Pixhawk
"i had the same thing, and performed an accell calibration, and it fixed it.  if it happens often, apparently, re-arming with the plane still fixes it for some, but this is the long term solution.  hope my experience helps others. "

Spike Webb commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post Building, flying and not crashing a large OctaQuadPlane
"That depends on the airfoil somewhat, as different airfoils will fly most efficiently at slightly different angles of attack. 3 degrees sounds like a good starting point, and with such a small model, it'll surely work fine.  I'm…"

Spike Webb commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post Building, flying and not crashing a large OctaQuadPlane
"another factor to some angle of the motors is to achieve hover with the wing at a slight positive angle. that way, as was mentioned before,the rotors are relatively neutral to the airflow in forward flight, the lift motors will also aid speed during…"

"Where are they actually available? looked for them, and could not find anywhere for sale. I am looking for  a fairly permanent solution that i can duplicate. thanks! "

"anybody making up packs out of ncr18650b panasonic cells? genuine ones?  looking for about 75 ah capacity at 11.1 volts myself for a long endurance fixed wing."

Spike Webb replied to martin best's discussion are there any custom builders out there
"Opinions may differ, but servos and other flight related things, are considered part of the u.a.v., and usually not part of the payload.  payload is sensors and other equipment that are extra.   if it'a  gas tav of any size or…"
