JDrones IO Board and mavlink

I am try to get my JDrones IO board to read Mavlink Messges which was possible a few years ago. At the moment I can read the Mavlink messages from a Pixhawk 2 and arducopter 3.5 RC1 using an arduino mega.Unfortunately when a compile the code for a Pro Mini it uses 83% memory which makes it unstable. Is there a way the Mavlink library could be easily trimmed down to make it work on a JDrones IO Board.ThanksDavid Ardis See More

"Only see a small spike at the end that also shows a spike in the vibrations as if you hit something."

"My hex does the same thing...makes a "twitch", sometimes a VERY dramatic twitch (huge reversal in pitch angle). Also wondering if there is a way to tune this out. Thanks..."

"Thanks for the reply. I have the original one from 3DR, so no clone or something. I bought a RTF system, this works perfect. And a spare one. From the spare one I build up a 500g quad, there I have this problem. Best regards Thomas"

I have just purchased 4 new Graupner 10x5 Propellers to replace the existing APC 10x4.5 slow fly props on my TBS Style Quad as I was not happy with the vibration levels.

Thought I would share the results.
