[ArduPilot/apm_planner] New comment by benb0jangles on issue #1186: Remove/Hide APMToolBar
Hi Arne, Yea I thought as much- that if I comment out the toolbar I will have to go through the other script pages and correct errors too.
Removing the APMtoolbar (the one with the icons not the menu bar) means there will be more more flight data viewable on my 640x360 fpv screen.
The screen I edited so far, it's not too bad, It's really just about making the best of available screen space.
It is clear that to make efficient use of the screen space removing the APMToolbar might be done. It is ok to do this because the standard menu bar > File > Edit > View this also does the same thing as APMToolbar so no need to have twice
I am building for Raspberry Pi + Cheap 7" LCD TV Screen.
benefits over Android Tablet/Laptop:
• Cheap ($10 screen + Pi)
• The Screen has two channel switch, ch1 for APMPlanner, ch2 for FPV view.
• Small linux computer means I am able to have more practical use
• It is smaller/portable than laptop (screen mounts onto Flysky radio transmitter)
• USB + GPIO I am able to use many tx/rx modules (Android is limited)
• I am using c2 fpv with Movidius Neural Compute stick live video object identification
• Also OpenCV Object Tracking

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal\_degrees|<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal\_degrees> or this article, 7 decimal places are sufficient for a minimum difference of ~11 mm at the equator.
A single precision float can store 6 to 9 significant decimal digits. So in the worst case, a float will yield only 11 cm precision.
APM Planner uses a double which can store 15 to 17 significant decimal digits.
[ArduPilot/apm_planner] New comment by anbello on issue #1193: When will there be the next stable release?
I think that for a new stable version it should be considered the change in parameters from Copter 4.0.
Something to implement here:
if(version.majorNumber() == 3)
if(version.minorNumber() >= 6)
QLOG_DEBUG() << "Using parameter set for ArduCopter 3.6+";
else if(version.minorNumber() >= 4)
QLOG_DEBUG() << "Using parameter set for ArduCopter 3.4+";
else if(version.majorNumber() == 4)
if(version.minorNumber() >= 0)
QLOG_DEBUG() << "Using parameter set for ArduCopter 4.0+";
QLOG_DEBUG() << "Using default parameter set";
and then a new function
setupPID_APM_40() witch will be mainly similar to
setupPID_APM_36() but with some difference, for now I see difference in ATC_RAT_ * _FILT that split in three params ATC_RAT_ * _FLTD, ATC_RAT_ * _FLTE, ATC_RAT_ * _FLTT and the same for PSC_ACCZ_FILT.

I have the same issue. It looks like APM Planner 2 is querying the wrong address to load firmware. I've attached my log file.
I have a Pixhawk4 and the following

can we build latest ardupilot firmware without chibi os directories or dependencies or can I port to a new controller board having nuttx like given here but without chibios:
