"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…"

"Posted in 2013! So quite an old thread. Are you following the instructions here? http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/throttle-failsafe/ I use a Turnigy9x with APM and failsafe works fine.  I don't remember doing anything with changing…"

"Hi Dean: 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 Alex & 12-HAK:    Thanks very much for your observations.    I probably don't fully realize just how far things have progressed.  I was sort of shoehorned into this clambake and see that my…"

"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"
