No, throttle is calculated as an average based on your climb_rate. You can fly around in Stablize and if you hover at least 10 seconds, it will auto-calibrate.
This is good to know. Thanks
But my question revolves around where I set my throttle when the quad is at a high altitude where I take pictures, since I can not see if it is holding steady or not.
So I should hover for this period of time, check the throttle position, then use this position for Alt_Hold at high altitudes?
(Loved the ABC report)
I'm having problem with holding height with APM2 and 2.5.3
When I engage AH lets say at 1 meter, the quad rises to about 3 meter.
Could this, what you are refering to ch7 be the problem? Can I reset the auto calibration?
I discribed the problem On the 2.5.3 thread but haven found a real solution to the problem.
I would say that 1 meter is somewhat low for AH on its own, considering ground preasure changes. But I see with AH after JS's statement that you need to find where the center Hover throttle point is on your quad. Let the quad settle for a moment and then engage AH. I do not understand if the calibration remains acurate all the time, though.
Jason did not comment on CH7 feature. But for me after finding the "Sweet Spot", keeping a dome over the FC and putting a small hole in it's top (1/4'), my quad holds very well, better than my NAZA.
