"I am not sure what the cut off point for running on APM. Old hardware is fine and 3.2 I think is the last or close to the last version. You have to find your real problem. Look for loose connections and also for little whiskers or stray wire stands…"

Greg Fletcher replied to Robert Wells's discussion Quad Copter Log Analysis Post Crash
"Your log contains almost no information. The only thing being logged is attitude and RCin. Not much to go on. I don't even see a crash at the end. You RCin just end with the sticks not centered, so that tells me that the log just ended mid…"

Quad Copter Log Analysis Post Crash

Hello All,Having not used my quad for a long time I have now started to use it again. Unfortunately I have experienced a few "random" crashes while flying. The last crash happened when changing from positive pitch to negative pitch. The quad is a flame wheel 450 with ublox gps running Arducopter 3.2.1Having not been in the loop for a while I am not too sure what other information you require. I would really appreciate it if someone could either give me some suggestions as to why the crash might…See More

"Been trying to get this set, too for a while, and I just can't believe that there's NO documentation about this, nor anyone in the know how to set this right. Imho, in Mission Planner, all the values should have units written out beside…"

Robert Wells replied to Robert Wells's discussion WP Speed Question
"Thanks, i now have them set as 0.25 and 7 which hasnt thrown up any weird values so im hoping that is right however it would be nice to know what is actually correct before flying. Also if i want the speed to be 7ms for example will the actual top…"

Stuart Brookes replied to Robert Wells's discussion WP Speed Question
"I fell foul of that issue too. The units aren't scaled the same for channel 6. I can't remember the multiplier but I think it was a factor was a factor 1000. Try dividing the chan 6 limits you set by 1000 and test by refreshing. "

WP Speed Question

Hi Guys,Its just a quick couple of questions but i couldn't find the answers anywhere :(I have ran a few missions and all bar the first have gone really well (first failed due to me not double checking all the parameters). I will be attempting my first spline waypoint mission on friday and am just in the process of setting it up. Under the parameter tree i have WP Speed set to 300 cm/s which has worked fine on previous missions. I am now using a spare channel on my remote to channel 6 on the…See More
