ArduPlane 2.40 has now been released. Many thanks to everyone who gave flight test feedback on the beta release!
Note that ArduPlane now uses MAVLink 1.0, so you'll need to update your Mission Planner to the newer version, which supports that. You'll find it in the same directory as your current Mission Planner, in a file called ArduPilotMegaPlanner10.exe
For a list of feature changes, see the ArduPlane-2.40-beta announcement. Since the beta the following things have changed:
In this version there's still the same issue I don't understand like in previous ones. When looking at calc_nav_pitch() there is a command
nav_pitch = -g.pidNavPitchAirspeed.get_pid(airspeed_error, dTnav); (2 parameters call)
However, get_pid definition is
PID::get_pid(int32_t error, uint16_t dt, float scaler) (3 parameters definition)
How can it be like this? Can you explain me?
Why is elevator reversed in FBW_B?
How can i make it work normal?
Have i misunderstood something? :)
Thank you Dragon, but i mean in the air.
When i pull the elevator, the plane should climb, but it does the opposite.
And when i push, the plane climbs but it should.....
Will test FBWB evantually... I notice the same beahvihor some time ago.
Until i installed Pito tube on the Bixler I guess I will never know.
FBWB works??? or not?
Dude that tested it! please speak up!
It does work, but elevator is rewersed.
Thanks Gabor. Will install Pito tube soon. But is it reverse or not? Purple Dragon seems ok with it. He mention altitude issues but otherwise controlled wise it is fine. No?
Yes elevator is reversed. Also my plane waves a bit in fbw_b but i think it is because of my pusher prop. When it gives throttle the plane pitches down a bit. I wil solve this somehow.
Could someone upload a parm file of a usual flight?
I would like to test my minimosd code.
Hi. I must add a *fake* last waypoint in a Mission in order to use DO_JUMP command to have a looping Mission? If I don't include the *fake* waypoint the plane will circle over home and not repeat mission.
This is working:
This is not working:
I'm fine with adding the fake waypoint for the mission to work but could this might hide a bug... or maybe I missed something.... again ;)
Do you have a parm file of your mission? :)
mission file attached. Without WP4, the mission don't loop.
