Happy,
Another question from the newbie. I noticed three OSDs on the market with stabilization and waypoints (Dragon, Super Cyclops, and Range Video). Can the GCS work with these to provide in-flight monitoring? Also, can the mission planner by Michael Oborne be used to load these OSDs with waypoints? My guess is no because the mission planner looks to be hardware specific.

The GCS is not compatible with any of those OSD (or any OSD right now). To the best of my knowledge, none of those OSD's have a telemetry datastream output....so there is no data other than the video signal that reaches the ground. Michael Oborne's planner is only for the ArduPilot Mega.

Having flown a UA over a 900Mhz control link I can tell you that you won't like the latency very much. You have have to stay about three steps in front of the aircraft to keep from over/under controlling it into the ground!

I'm not sure the guys from Atto have actually flown it with the joystick....but they tell me that you're more or less nudging the plane where to go. It's joystick assisted auto pilot....not the other way around.

1) That's really a function of the processing power of your computer. If you're seeing extreme lag, then you'll need to turn down either Attitude or GPS or both. Waypoint (for right now) also includes the servo and sensor data so that means those data streams will only update as fast as your waypoint setting is configured. So I typically use 5, 3, 2. At 38,400 the X-Bees will easily handle that throughput. At 57,600 it's even better.

2) With APM no current ability to auto take-off or land.

3) Jason (ArduPilot/ArduCopter developer) has a version of the APM code he uses on a car. I haven't seen it posted anywhere but you might want to ask on DIYDrones for a copy.

tazmadman, there have been some recent changes to the way I'm handling data behind the scenes. I had to disable the data file playback for a short time to get those issues resolved. With the latest build that's up on the Google Code site, you should be able to type in a new file name in the combo box and hit the record button.
