I am configuring my Skyartec Skyfun with APM and Oilpan. I have the system set up so all channels operate correctly in manual flight mode (APM not engaged) but as soon as I switch to stabilise or FBW, although the APM responds correctly in terms of stabilisation, my r/c channels become horribly confused and my pitch and roll channels switch (left/right stick becomes pitch and up/down stick becomes roll). It reverts to correct sense as soon as I disengage APM.
Any help appreciated,
I also have strange stuff happen with my APL board using my RDS8000. This radio is new to me and I was working great w/the Spektrum radio, but now I get real strange stuff happening when I engage my AP. It does stabilize but everything is over the top. How's your setup running? Any advise for setting up the radio? Im using the default first model.
Apologies for the delayed reply. I used the stock airplane settings on my RDS8000. Even though I fly a delta model (Hobbyking Skyfun) all the elevon mixing is done by the APM. The dip-switch configuration did change though from version 1.0 to 2.0. The L->R settings are now: Down-Up-Down-Up for the Skyfun.
Sounds like some of the PID values may be too high with your setup and the APM is over-deflecting the control surfaces.
Hope this helps,
