ArduCopter 2.7.1 will become available on Mission Planner and in the downloads area shortly. This release contains a few important bug fixes as well as the first implementation of the MPU6000 sensor-fusion code.
Detailed changes are in the commit log. Here's a summary:
- Preliminary support for MPU6000 on board sensor-fusion (DMP)
- AP_Limits: Experimental "bounce" mode, for smaller spaces (LIM_RECMODE)
- Bug fix for yaw error buildup on takeoff
- Fix in Auto mode for failsafe handling
- Fixes to 3-axis camera gimbal code
Bravo Marco, very very nice take off but landing no good.
Great video and flight Marco.
I am more encouraged than ever before.
Does your quad have a u-Blox for GPS?
Now that 2.7.2 is available I have read some reports on ALT HOLD and LOITER that indicate some issues in stability. Do you recommend I download and use 2.7.2 on my Flame Wheel Quad (850 motors, 20 amp ESCs and 10" props) and my DIY Drones QUAD with same motors, ESCs and Props?
Hi Allen, i fly this beta this morning (local time) and i give you my impression, and the same to the dev list.
Great! Can't wait to see how it does.
For me is "GO"... :-)
Can I just use the dfault PIDs or do you have some suggestions. I am flyig a DIY Drones QUAD with 850 moto, 20 A ESCs, GPS, Sonar and basic aluminum frame.
I've agreed with you many times in the DJI vs Arducopter debate buddy but asking for exact PIDs is expecting a bit much!! Fly it, tune it, or stay DJI my friend. Marco probably wont be offering a door to door tuning service either :) if it doesn't fly to your taste, it's allllll on the wiki :)
When the 2.7.2 go out i put here my setting. There's a discussion on the dev list for reduce some default parameters, like Stab_P and Rate_D, but there's no rule, AC need perfect tuning for all the different configuration.
Thank you Marco.
Didn't mean to be a bother. Just didn't have access via WIKI for 2.7.2.
Good and safe flying.
very nice just watched it :-)
Is it normal now on auto land for the quad to bounce several times before stopping??
