"Hello again, I have put the APM in its black enclosure, it has black foam over the barometer and is nice and sealed up. I attempted to graph the same variables you graphed above for comparison (attached below). It appears that the altitude is now…"

"do you have a legit apm? I've got the rctimer version, and their setup guide explicitly tells you to glue a piece of black foam over the barometer (haha) very last picture in the first post:…"

"Ahha! Perhaps its my barometer then. I mentioned my concerns for prop wash at the start - It is not protected from sunlight at the moment - but i have an enclosure it will be going into ASAP. I read up…"

"Upon reviewing your logs, I think it's most likely you landed during those periods ;) That still does not explain your GPS errors. If you look at the reported barometer altitude in the dataflash logs, something is incredibly off. Note that the…"

"Hi Austin, I was thinking those pauses where there is very little vibration recorded is when I had landed the quad on the ground – before taking off for hover again?"

Finnius replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"Haha, sorry -  here is the IMU .log and the mission planner .tlog for the same flight i think. Do they open up alright? Thanks for your time trying to figure this out much appreciated."

Austin Suhler replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"There is something significantly more going on here than vibrations. I have vibrations only slightly lower than yours on one of my SK-450's that has 160+ autonomous hours of flight on it, without a single incident. Can you post both the…"

"haha, youre making this pretty painful man. just post the log file. i am going to use mission planner to look at the recorded data as outlined here http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/downloading-and-analyzing-data-logs-in-mission-planner/"

Finnius replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"I thought i just posted the log of my x,y,z for others to look at. Is that right? In terms of the different altitude readings - where are those altitudes logged - in the IMU log?"

Joe Thompson replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"Finnius, yes, you are JUST within the limits of what is considered acceptable, but without the logs no one else can check for you. which tag are you looking at? There are: CTUN: BarAlt - the altitude from the barometer GPS: Alt - the altitude from…"

Finnius replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"Ok so here goes what i have found out: The hdop is 1.7 - which is meant to be fine. The GPS says it has 9 satellites.  The altitude when i am on the ground says -800 or other random values. I looked through those setup videos and have done…"

"You need to make the throttle is between 40-60%, or throttle is at middle to get altitude hold and loiter"

Thanh Nguyen replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"Hi Finnius, you should check your GPS, watch how many sattellite it received? You also try to make quad work well in altitude hold. in my case, altitude hold can work well as about 1m @@ lolz, very well,huh? I also tested loiter mode too. it worked…"
