"     I read what you wrote about the 80% setting in the MAH value; but what about the failsafe setting for voltage? Should I set it for 80% also? Thanks for any help."

"Apparently some cameras flash their LED too long when set to FAST mode, resulting in multiple TRIG events logged. I have heard the SX260HS behaves that way.  The S100 works fine though when SHOT LED SYNC is set to 1."

"The strange behaviour on the camera wasnt strange at all, it was doind what it was supposed to when set to BURST mode. Setting it to FAST stopped it from taking two pictures for every command :-)"

Profile Information

About Me:
I have been tinkering with APM2.5 and Pixhawk for a few years but still consider myself new to flying. I have learnt everything from the interweb and doing it by myself, it has been a challenge, and I have enjoyed it even though some parts have been extremely frustrating! It would be great to meet other enthusiasts...
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am very interested in Aerial photography and fpv flying. I currently have a 3dr 2014 Quad stock, 3dr radio telemetry, Tarot 2d gimbal, go pro 3+, ImmersionRC transmitter and minimOSD.
I am using a Taranis with X8R for control.
I have a lidar lite for low level altitude control and used to use a Teensy3.1 running a mavlink converter code so I could see the telemetry information on the Taranis. Now I just use FlightDeck.
I also have an APM 2.5 with external compass to fit to a Bixler 2 when I get the time... But first I need to learn how to fly fixed wing ;-)
Hometown:
Small town New Zealand. Jeg bor i Oslo nå.

       Another reminder of the dangers of using drones  by air brained guy like the above. This time flying a machine in close proximity and unprotected blades. He is lucky it didn't slice his fingers off!…

Farming NZ style

How they are doing it down under - NZ has some of the most "sensible" rules for UAV's and are putting them to good use.

With a review of the Line of Sight rules underway there is hope those will be relaxed.
