"Here is my experience with the same problems. I scoured the net looking for solutions for the past two days. I couldn't get a link like I had when I first connected.
Well. I had changed out my micro usb cord for a longer one.…"
"First post here :)Hello, I upgraded my hex to 3.1.3 yesterday, and have done a few flights (total only ~30 minutes so far), including an AP mission. Before it was on 3.1.2, and also fine.
I have however carefully calibrated everything…"
"Inverted? Hook your APM up to your computer and check over everything. Pick it up and move it around a bit, sideways, nose up, upside down, every which way, then post a log here, I'll take a look at it for you :) you could very easily have the…"
"Most of the time the fault is with the user. Most users dont really know everything back to front, take shortcuts, dont retune after an update and so on.

Start by making it fly well in stabilize.
Do autotune once you are sure you don't have…"
"You should try it! I cannot even describe how incredibly fun and valuable this experience has been to me. It's landed me a research lab as a freshman in college, and plenty of job offerings, as well as my quad being one of the most fun things…"
"The quad I mention on the next page is an APM 2.5, and it had problems going to the 3.X.X series of code because that series uses the compass a lot more for nav and stabilization than the 2.X.X code did. That's the reason 2.8 worked for you,…"
"It was a design fault in placing the compass inside the APM. Thats why 3DR now make the compass as part of the GPS and they are both external and intended to be placed away from all EMI.
Its your fault in the sense, you and only you can fix this,…"
