Hey Ben,

Good to hear that you got it flying now! Sorry that I didn't respond to your emails that quick, but I've been a bit busy lately.

But switching to binary mode is very easy when you enable the ublox module inside your airframe file. So what you got to do is first set the gps subsystem to ublox, then add:
 <modules main_freq="512">
    <load name="gps_ubx_ucenter.xml"/>
to your airframe file just line in The it will automatically configure the GPS for you.


2013/10/20 Ben Laurie <address@hidden>, I really should've calibrated it sooner. Now that I have it no
longer falls out of the sky.

However, I'm still having trouble with GPSes.

The cheap Chinese one I bought (allegedly u-blox based) works
reasonably well, but has a very long cable which gets in the way. I
shall truncate the cable and try it again.

The much more expensive German one (also u-blox) has absolutely
terrible accuracy and as a result tends to fly into trees. Not sure
why this is.

Neither will switch into binary mode, at least not under control of paparazzi.

I'll investigate further.
