I am having issues getting my ArduCopter working. Here is my setup:
APM Oilpan version Hotel 1.0
It appears that the artificial horizon is not correct. It drifts in both pitch, roll and yaw. I have the dip switch settings with position 1 down an 2,3,4 up to fly in + mode. SW2 on the board is set to 1. I have tried multiple code versions and nothing seems to stabilize the artificial horizon.
Here is a video of the issue in the configurator. Please note that the quad is sitting flat the entire time. The horizon slowly moves, but when I flip back to the page with the accelerometer reading the values are steady.
It appears that the accelerometer values are not being used in the DCM???
Plase check the offset of the sensors.
Pitch, roll offset must be zero, z-axis value : 408 is proper.
You should adjust offset.
accelerometer Z value should be around 408, not 0
check that, it should work
/edit: yes, like Hyon said
That could be it. I set offsets to zero all three x, y, and z. I will try putting the the Z at 480 and let you know later today if that was it. Thanks-
