Pixhawk and Follow me mode

Does anyone use the follow me flight mode with the Pixhawk? I am based in the UK and I am trying to find the most suitable equipment to use for the GPS dongle. Ideally I would like it as lightweight and small as possible. I am hoping to get some aerial footage while mountain biking.Are you able to use a tablet with the dongle or will you have to run around with a laptop?Many thanksSee More

"I have been using 3.2-rc1 on my Pixhawk as it was supporting sbus. I have just tried to reflash it and the only beta firmware I can find is V3.1.5-rc2 which doesn't work with my Rx on Sbus. Where can I get the previous V3.2-rc1? Thanks."

"Hi Maybe one of the APM is a 2.5 and the otjer is 2.6 ?  Version 2.5 needs to cut a connection on the main board to disable the onboard compass. 2.6 has no onboard compass."

Poor compass calibration

Hi All,I had a crash with my hexcopter and I have been diagnosing the problem. I decide to run through the setup again and I discovered that the compass was not working and this would explain the problem. As it was a new board and compass I decided to investigate further.I have plugged the GPS and compass into another airframe that has the same APM, same firmware, same everything. The external GPS module works fine. When I plug the working GPS module from the sister board into the APM that…See More

Hi all,I have a very frustrating problem with connection to APM2.6.I can connect to the APM using the USB lead on both my PC and laptop. (I do most configuration on PC and use laptop in the field). I can then also connect to the APM using mission planner on my PC and it is very quick and easy. When I come to connect to the APM using my laptop the connection times out and no heartbeats are received.I am 99% sure it is a problem with my laptop as when I try to select the COM port it is very slow…See More
