I posted this on another topic but I should have specified it more directly in the proper topic here. My application requires a lot of heli related aspects and arducopter covers them. However, what I need is what was suggested to me in the other topic and that was FBW-A flight mode. I have only see it in the arduplane wiki, I have not seen it in the arducopter wiki let alone the heli one. I have very very little knowledge of coding but if it requires an insert somewhere I could try it with some help. So with all that said is FBW-A in arducopter?

I found the mode that is in arducopter similar to this but how do I add user defined modes like ROLL_PITCH_STABLE from the wiki? This mode should be like FBW-A in arduplane where the stick angle makes the aircraft go at an angle and not at a rate, right?. I see there are a couple of lines on how to do this but I'm at a loss as to where to start. Do I modify the config file? if so which one. Do I copy and paste code into someplace? Any help with this would be much appreciated.
I think what you're looking for is already implemented. Stabilize mode maps a roll/pitch angle to the stick position. Full stick movement gives you 45° attitude. Center stick makes it center. Simple as that. This is the most common mode being flown, works quite well.
That sounds perfect. Sorry for this simple question. When I looked at the wiki it looked like I needed to add code into the config file and when I looked at the file it said don't touch. I need this to transition a heli to and from horizontal to maintaining a constant 15 degrees of pitch in the second mode which if this all works I can just add that into a mix. Thank you for your help.
What exactly are you working on?
Interesting. How does an autogyro take off vertically?
They can't, nor can they hover.. What he is proposing is a Heli / Autogyro transition similar to the Heli / Fixed wing of the V-22 Osprey, hence the 15deg cg shift..
Correct me if I am wrong gearwolf..
So... is this a helicopter (with a powered rotor) and then a pusher prop?
Like the Cheyenne?
