  • Performance improvements to reduce CPU overhead
  • Extra GPS parameters viewable on the map as a overlay
  • Update to APM:Plane PIDs display

    @JM & CA: I've removed that warning message. The fix will be in the next release of AP2.

  • I've deleted my question from here and have a look on ardupilot forum.

    Thanks !

    Bill: JM is just referring to these lines in the Messages Window, which we've talked about before.  I know there's not meaningful errors, but if there is a way to suppress them from displaying, that would avoid user confusion.

    @JM: please raise your tech questions here and if you explain what feature is not working we can look at a fix.

    APM Planner 2.0 is a new GSC, which has ported the functionality of Mission Planner to the cross-platform QGC architecture. It's primarily used today for people who want a native Mac OSX or Linux solution. 

  • The same here in a 13inch macbook pro

    @Austin: What screen size are you using?

  • how do I increase the size of the Art Horizon? Mine is tiny like a slit. I drag down on the bar and it turns blue but wont increase???

  • Keep up the great work, as a MAC user just getting into the whole UAV scene I'm so happy to see solid MAC support!
