Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

I';ve had some really strange YAW movements ... to the point where my quad did a complete 180 without me doing anything.

Had a bit of a lightbulb moment last night when taking my quad down from the hook on the wall.  That MAGNETIC tool holder behind it might just be causing me some problems !

Time to leave it to degauss and then redo the calibration.

Might be worth recalibrating the mag unit just in case, I did mine with props off running at full throttle last time and boy did it make the difference!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!

How did you manage that ? ... if the quad is armed the mag calibration doesn';t start.

I think Darrell is suggesting compassmot which is done from the CLI screen.   http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/ac_compasssetupupadvanced/

I presume that is accessible and required in MPNG?

Ah ... and herein lies the confusion ... I';ve been running MultiWii

Hello palm, this is face, allow me to introduce you  :rofl:  :rofl:

Err, well its so totally likely to be the magnetometer a bit off. If  it has been exposed to strong static magnetic fields it may be a challenge to get it to recalibrate properly.  But in MultiWii that is a simple button push IIRC (been a very little while since I used MultiWii).

Yeah ... I';ve moved it away from the magnetic strip last night and I';ll try doing the re-calibration dance  tonight.

I';ve a good mind to try uploading the 2.3 pre release as well.
