Subject: RE: [Paparazzi-devel] Strange Surging Behavior
The Servos are hooked up to the outputs on the AP board... there are
two aileron servos, rudder servo, and elevator servo. I am not aware
of any alternate way of setting up the servos... is there any way to
test if the voltage regulators are being overloaded?
