@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 ~~

See full details here: https://www.openpilot.org/new-release-15-01/

GPS Assist Setup documentation is here --> http://wiki.openpilot.org/display/WIKI/Revo+-+GPS+Assist+Mode+Setup

Primary new features in this release:
Quote
GPSAssist: GPSAssist / Assisted Control provides assistance functions on top of existing flight modes. GPSAssist is the first assisted control option available from OpenPilot. GPSAssist supports Attitude and Rattitude flight modes (making it the first of *any* flight controller capable of gps assisted acro flight) and activates braking and position hold when the pitch/roll sticks are centered. Attitude/Rattitude may be flown with any of the current thrust modes (manual, cruisecontrol, altvario).

GPSAssist for the PositionHold flight mode also introduces a braking sequence when first entering this flight mode and introduces altvario as the thrust mode.

Video of GPSAssist -

Read full details and instructions for GPSAssist in the project documentation.

Auto reboot: A new feature that allows you to rescue, update,and erase settings while never unplugging your board.


Quote
GPS Assist:
GPS Assist is your "helper" while flying.  When you center your transmitter sticks while in flight, this mode will automatically enter into Position Hold, in effect, "pausing the action" and letting you swat that bug, wipe the sweat from your brow, or chase off the dog that';s licking (or chewing on) your leg.


Edit: Added GPS Assist Setup URL

Thanks for the heads up Danny, downloading now!

Will this work on the CC3D I';m still very confused as to what GPS functionality the CC3D has. There';s talk about lack of on board memory for it to work like most systems and seems it';s used more for antenna tracking than anything else.

All of the documentation says that the the GPS functions only work on the OP Revo flight controller.

I have been trying for weeks to get Mini Me to run on Debian Wheezy, even enlisting the help of the guys on the Debian forums. Seems one of the dependency lib6 files that GCS required was newer than the one in Wheezy. Tried all sorts and ended up using LinuxMint to get it to run. OP says they have improved the .deb installer file [* [OP-1666] - Tidy deb package] - I';m hoping this means they have made it backward compatible. I like Debian cause its a rock solid OS and I want to use it as my ';in the field'; ground station. Will install this update on my Debian lappy and test.

@arturios - If you really get stuck and have to play such shenanigans to get stuff working you could try intalling Vagrant on your Debian box.  That way you can spin up a LinuxMint VM on demand just to run quirky stuff like the GCS issue you had.   When done just use "vagrant destroy" to chuck the VM away.  Each time you use vagrant you get a nice fresh VM each time (if you want).

Apologies if you already know about vagrant.

Thanks Handson... No I didnt know about vagrant, although I had considered running a VM environment. The Tablet I was planning on running it on is a Dell Lattitude ST:

Really quirky tablet even on Windows. Ubuntu was just plain rubbish although Mint seems fine. Wouldn';t want to do VM on it cause I';d just be pulling my hearing hair out  :rofl:

I have a test eSystem lappy thats running real nice at the moment but will need to get a battery if I want to take it out in the field.

Thanks for the heads up on Vagrant ::)
