A lot of fun to build and fly, flies great - Here's a vid of it in action:Oahu, Hawaii 2014 (9 min 34 sec) Pricing is competitive; if you're thinking of offering less that 90% of the listed prices please let us not waste anyone's time.…See More

"Typical stall, one wing drops, then spiral. The ONLY way to get out of a spin, is DOWN elevator. Yes, it sounds crazy, but it will work. Also, use RUDDER, not alerions. Once spin is stopped, reduce power, then up elevator, alerions, as normal."

"Thanks for your post. I have recently maiden my Mako and I must say it was awesome. First plane I was able to fly successfully. Fast so not really great for beginners, but I am learning this wing and ArduPlane quickly."

"Also using analog airspeed sensor on APM, sufficiently stable (to 1 or 2 km/h). Don't forget that on every startup it has to be covered and it will calibrate itself for "zero" wind speed."

Pixhawk & Analog Airspeed sensor

Hello,I'm helping someone install an analog airspeed sensor with the pixhawk, the wiki says:The “airspeed” pin 15 is located on a 3 pin DF13 connector on the Pixhawk board.This pin can take voltages up to 6.6V (it has an internal voltage divider).The analog airspeed sensor does not have a DF13 connector, but instead a servo cable. So - the only way to connect the analog sensor is to butcher a DF13 cable and splice it to the servo cable? that seems odd! No way to connect the sensor to one of the…See More

I will have to connect my gimbal later today and see what my PIDs are... 

I pretty much followed this guy's video:

http://www.rockberry.pk/yt/watch/pkEEBEzGJCk

I bumped my Pitch "POWER" setting from 90 to 125, and the gimbal seems to work nicely at these values.
