"Thanks for the replies. Yes, the help line here is pretty quiet. Part of the reason I gave up on the arducopter and bought a Phantom 2 vision plus. It flies very well out-of-the-box and there are some interesting apps now available…"
"Wow 100 views and nobody has offered to help you ... that sucks! I am thinking of using this TX also so I hope someone comes to your rescue. I am totally new to this...I just bought a Hubsan x4 to learn to fly and I am getting it to…"
Best wishes for 2014! I noticed that as well, two motors always running very hot, diagonally oriented. When hovering at eye level I could see that one rotor disk was angled slightly. At the time, I thought this was…"
"This is very interesting. So, would it be true that the MOTOR data-flash messages should all be nearly the same In a steady, no wind hover? If they are not all similar, then that would indicate a motor misalignment, a C of G problem or…"
"Hello Shyam:Thanks for your comments. A friend loaned me the arducopter so I wasn't certain what I was getting into. I thought the Ardu-code, being open source, would be essentially a finished product with citizen programmers mostly…"
"Exactly my problem as well. Fix or downgrade option please.
Lack of reliability/repeat-ability seems to be a hall mark of this whole enterprise. Huge waste of time just to stay in one spot.
Cheers . . . . "
"Hello Andre:That does sound promising. Did you install a new remote compass or just move the old one?I'm planning how to suspend the APM board with O-rings or elastic bands.And I think the barometer needs a foam cover?You seem to have got…"
"Hello Leonard & Dean:Thanks for the advice, I'll stick with the APM 1 and organize some vibration control. How important is a remote compass?I don't mind the tinkering and tweaking, but thought that the software would be evolved…"
"OK, appreciate the thoughts. I'm into reading so will press on. However, is there any point with an APM 1? Without extensive vibration mitigation and remote compass, etc., etc. is there much point in moving to 3.x with this…"
"Hi Dean, cheers to all!
Thanks for the info, I'll delve into the documentation wiki. I'm reverting to 2.9.1 B until this whole enterprise moves out of the beta testing phase. Too much tinkering, not enough flying and…"
"Haven't had the stamina to keep up with the thousands of posts.
Is 3.1 available?
Does it have all the vibration and compass restrictions that 3.0.1 does?
I s 3.1 documented or is it the same as 3.0.1?
Thanks very much . . . Cheers"
"There is a dropdown menu where you can select the code version. You'll see a scramble of numbers in the dropdown. Those are the git tag from when the version was made. Confusing yes, but you will see the…"
Just curious about your criteria for losing GPS lock? Are you able to screen out satellites based on DOP values, signal strength or angle above the horizon? These plus a minimum satellite count are used in mapping/surveying…"
