My skywalker's apm tends to crash after a running for awhile. the airlerons lock at a certain angle, the rudder deflects and all of it leads to a spiralling crash. I can't understand why suddenly the…Continue

"That's a damn good idea, there's just no real need to protect the middle of the craft when 99% of your hits will come from the outside area."

"Wouldn't it be better to cut the power trace?  If you cut the TX line the unit will still be powered and drawing current from your battery."

"I'm going to mount it back to where it was before, right behind the main shaft.  But this time, I'll have a heavy copper plate attached to the bottom of the circuit board, then sit on top of my favorite anti-vibration sheet. I'll…"

"I would consider your anti-vibration mounting, as it might not have been good enough.  I'll be taking another crack at it shortly."

"I'm not going to cut it now.  I tried to mount the APM2 under the copter yesterday, but there are other issues that make it not feasible.  I'm going to mount it back outside and use the GPS again."

"The picture is very very small and can't really see.  Did you just cut off the first connector between the GPS and the board?"

"So does that unit fly? Isn't it interesting, quite litterally Billions of dollars are spent on streamlining and testing the aerodynamics of Jet airliners, and indeed Millitary aircraft, yet due to the Excess power we can pull out of tiny…"

"Hi! I am very curious to know if you managed to pull this out :). It looks like a nice project and I am also planning to try the ardupilot with an unconventional airframe and I would like to know if it is possible or not. Thanks. Stefan"
