@badger1, When my quad got all muddy, a quick rinse under the hot tap, avoiding the electronics, got the worst of it off, then strip down and clean, quick repair to the VTx, it's all good again ~~

Started by Hands0n, Saturday,December 13, 2014, 00:15:41

Previous topic - Next topic


@flybywire kindly posted up his experience of the new mini me version 14.10 of Open Pilot flight software.  The following is the change log detailing the enhancements and bug fixes contained in the new release. 

This is a major update, there is a lot in here..

The OpenPilot Jira (bug and work tracking system) is here --> http://progress.openpilot.org/browse/OP-1317  Just change the four-digit number in the URL to any of the below in the list to get the detail behind the bug or improvement.  There is also a Search capability in the Jira system.

--- RELEASE-14.10 ---
This release mainly focuses on flight performance, especially aimed at mini multirotors and adds support for the OpenPilot Platinum GPS (V9).
This version supports the CopterControl, CC3D, Atom and the Revolution Flight controllers as well as the OPLink Modems.

Some key addition in this release:
- A brand new Acro+ flight mode, a Rate mode "on steroids";
- Support for latest OpenPilot Platinum GPS (V9) and its integrated magnetometer;
- Throttle PID Scaling: automatically scale PIDs based on throttle;
- On board Expo support;
- Several additions to the Setup Wizard such as Fixed wing support, GPS selection, TriCopter servo speed selection and ESC calibration;
- First implementation of Cloud Config, Cloud Config in this release is the first version of the future community based distributed system for sharing vehicle settings;
- Redesigned PFD artwork and addition of multifunctional slide out panels;
- Support for additional Flexi-IO serial port for Revolution;
- External (ws281x compatible) status LED support;
- Considerable flight performance improvements. 

The full list of features, improvements and bugfixes in this release is accessible here:
