"There's a latency issue flying over WiFi or 3G, also I nearly lost my quad (and phone) because of using my cellphone to take video without turning all the radio's off caused an uncontrolled flyaway, so there are some problems."
"Before uploading the new version I normally save all the parameters in one 'param' file from the adv params screen, that way it's easy to go back if needed to exactly the same setup. But yes to go back just choose previous firmware…"
"1st: yes the receiver is powered from just any channel plug, it's a low current device so there is enough to power the receiver and APM from the one ESC's BEC circuit (but not to power anything more).
2nd; check this page if you…"
"In the advanced params there's one param called "frame" (Controls motor mixing. Quad: 0=+ 1=X)
if that is "3" then it's H-quad implementation
And to make the rest easy: swop right rear prop for left rear…"
I'm not kidding either, the camera was in a camera trap which some lions managed to open and they then chewed everything, not only the camera. I just wish I could get the photos off the camera's internal memory.
"The signal line (only) goes to A11, the other two (red & black) must go to your output rail - the one with the ESC's connected or to a separate UBEC. I pull the signal wire out of the servo plug and put that single wire into an old empty…"
"In ArduCopter when you arm the 'copter then the Alt is set to zero, i.e. your home ground level, so it's easy to see if you're 50m above that level - AGL (above ground level).
With ArduPlane the default altitude on the HUD is ASL…"
"Hi Randy, any tips for tuning ALT_HOLD in v3? I'm getting a very jumpy ALT_HOLD with small surges and occasional big ones, my previous tuned settings for v2.9.1b, which made things better, seem to be making things worse. (My vibration levels…"
i think i can correct it but want a clear view ur ailerons r reversed in automode or manual mode. If its auto change is to be done in the code else it has to be reversed using RC remote... let me know whats exactly it is
actually the same problem i had faced but my elevator movement was reversed
in autopilot so i tried to correct it by #define PITCH_REVERSE
but nothing happened later i found thaT this header is not at all used inside code so i just follow the logic in code and got the line to reverse the motion of either aileron or elevator in ... void pulse_servos(int roll, int pitch) //Normal mode
pulse_servo_2(90-pitch); //invert sign if you want to reverse the servo...
This is what i had changed then to work it well.
I did few tests and got semi success in few , hopefully i can make it this time atleast 80% success with little changes in trim as u recommended in ur blog failure and success.
Its very nice blog i will try to write the one ... it really helps ourselves and others
Hi, this must sound stupid, but how do you get the nice line logs in GE... My current position just constantly changes. I'm using a E406. I can't seem to get the right altitude data in the GS2 either.. Any help would be appreciated.
we're developing a UAV here in Newcastle, Australia. We've been experimenting with the ardupilot 2_7_1 for a few months. Having huge problems with altitude hold and throttle. We're using a petrol engine. We realize the original ardu is for electric. It seems there is not much data on petrol engines for ardu. We had a crash last week and lost the plane. We're going to rebuild the code from scratch and simplify it. Will get back on to you on our progress. Cheers,
