I have done Dynamic Soaring in over 55mph, and quad flying in over 25mph with the right equipment.

Broken props are part of the process  :D It's amazing how antennas can find their way into the props  :D

Connecting GPS to uCentre - Using APM/Pixhawk as Passthrough

The mission planner and pixhawk can pass through the communication between u-center and the GPS by doing the following:


  • Connect to Pixhawk to your PC and connect with the Mission Planner

  • On the Flight Data screen press Ctrl-F and then select "MAVSerial pass"

  • Open u-center and select Receiver, TCP Client and in the Network Connection window set Address to "localhost" and Port to "500" and press OK.



The distinct advantage of using this method over anything else is that it proves out the serial cable connection between GPS and FC.  One less thing to worry about when setting up the GPS.
