So proud to be featured in Painless360’s video/tutorial on ArduPilot telemetry

In his October edition Painless360 shows setting up telemetry on ArduPilot is no headache. He covers two wireless telemetry options for ArduPilot/Pixhawk 2.1. The first option is the standard telemetry radio, which allows you to talk to your vehicle over the air waves, like a long virtual USB cable between your vehicle and Mission Planner. The second option is FlightDeck which Painless360 say “is essentially like a mini Mission Planner that appears on your radio.”

  1. Jumper Wiring can be solved by using DeoxIT D5.
    I have found that aluminum ribbon cables oxides and can oxide short !
    Deoxit will fix this problem will not effect the electronics or plastics.
    This product is excellent for cleaning noisy soys and dirty switches.
    I am retired W.D.W. Electronic Engineer and have used this product on my own Jumper T16.
    I have used this product for about 20 year.
