True! How does the saying go: " If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

....In our docu: http://autoquad.org/wiki/wiki

You can use Bluetooth, 3DR radio, XBee and soon Wifi for it.

And before you ask: the software for Windows/Mac/Linux/Android is here:

It's a big depends. Bluetooth has the shortest range. The other ones will depend on power, antennas and terrain, Usually you can get better range with 3DR in lower frequencies as 433, 866 and 900 MHz as they pass over obstacles easier. I'm quite happy with RFD900 http://rfdesign.com.au/index.php/rfd900

No problem, we're here to help.
If your questions get more specific you might want to have a look at our forums and ask your questions there:
http://forum.autoquad.org

Only a few team members monitor this particular thread on a frequent base.
It was more meant for general stuff and announcements.

JussiH, what is the L1 adaptive controller?

I've been looking at purchasing the autoquad controller for a quad build, but if there is an updated version coming out then I'll hold off...or is it just new firmware?

In very basic terms it is an adaptive control algorithm that adapts to actual flight conditions. Meaning that when the copter gets hit by a gust, the controller adapts to the new condition in 1/100 of a second and agressively compensates, while still keeping things smooth - I can fly my copter and make videos with it in very high wind - I flew it today in 12-14 m/s wind and you hardly can see it in the video. The PID controller can handle the same kind of flight conditions (if properly tuned), but it wont be as smooth in the reaction to gusts and changing flight conditions.

L1 is in part based on closed source from other parties, so IF it is ever released it will have its own license tied to the controller serial number and a fee associated. It wont ever make it into the public branch of the source code.

I want to make absolute clear that AQ with PID is still outperforming anything in the current market, and is simply the most stable controller available currently if calibrated and setup correctly.

L1 runs on the current HW, and we have no plans to replace AQ6 or ESC32 anytime soon. In fact we will probably very soon release some new addons for the controller, so stay tuned.

An AQ copter is good at sitting very still and at moving.
