Problem Geotagging

Yesterday, I couldn't get Mission Planner's Ctrl+F geotagger to work. I've used it many times before with no problem. No matter what log I loaded, it said that the log began and ended 05/09/13…Continue

APM 2.5+ GPS, Communications Failure

My APM 2.5+ won't connect on the 3DR radios or USB. For the past few days, I've noticed the HUD starting to twitch (+/-3 degrees) when the plane is sitting still. Today at the field, I had trouble…Continue

Started this discussion. Last reply by Chris Anderson Nov 3, 2012. 1 Reply

I crashed my quad today, and I was wondering if what happened was normal. I was flying my quad in stabilize, and I was flying it pretty fast. As I pulled back on the stick to stop it, I found that it…Continue

"I don't know how much a Puma costs, but I'm sure we couldn't afford it! This is the Lynx, which we made ourselves. As a mapping platform, it's a dream to use. Flies for over an hour, and deep-stalls to land. "

"What about using the "hat switch" to control the gimbal? I have a normal joystick with a hat switch at the top which i hope to be able to use to control the camera. Has anyone been able to do this?"

"The Arduplane answer is no, because you can't do a radio calibration. Maybe a copter person can verify. But overall, you should be less trusting of untested autonomous systems. "

Hey Stephen,

Just read about your good work in the Philippines and thought you might be interested in the Humanitarian UAV Network (which will formally launch next month): 

http://UAViators.org

I've added a reference to your project under the Operations tab.

Cheers,
Patrick
