For the last couple of weeks my Hexa has been flying like a dog ....Just run planner to install 2.0.29 and my world is back in order. A massive improvement with sonar altitude hold working the best ever....
The most stable in ages and haven't had to tune the PIDs on my home made hexa - amazng.
Only tried it in the garden and will put it through its paces tomorrow when I have more space.
GUYS - any chance you could get camera stabalization working in outputs 5 and 6 when downloading with planner.
Don, Can you dump me a log of the sonar alt hold problem?
I can't figure out what's up with the panner. So odd! I'll ask Michael O.
Don with APM-MP yu don't need to worry about all library issues or compilation etc. APM-MP uses pre-compiled firmware code that is usually tested before "uploaded" to it. If you plan to use Arduino IDE you need to take care of installing all latest libraries and download latest code from our repository.
Most of the cases APM-MP uploads same version as in our repository but as ready compiled.
If you have some special settings and you want to do things differently, then you can use Arduino IDE and make those "hardcoded" modifications. Most of users do not need them.
Ahh cool, gotcha. I never had an issue with Arduino IDE as i always used the latest libraries. i am a coder so looking at the code does peek my interest:)
Thanks to the Arducopter team for updating to 2.0.30. Now Camera stabilization works when downloading with planner.
Is there any way to set reversing of servos for camera stabilization via the planner? Unfortunately I keep getting errors when trying to upload using Arduino 0022. Thanks
Yes indeed a big improvement.
I finally got some stableflight with adjusting my pids.
These are now for stable R&P 0.13 / 0.024 / 0.079
Being so low, is there a reason for this comparing with the default ones?
For the rest it seems that I'm having a problem with the sonar again.I don't know if its a code problem or what.
When in alt hold it hold very well but when I put my hand under it it goes up again without stopping.
What I also noticed on the GCS once surpassed 7 meter is jumps to 1 or 2 meters. I think the data from the BAro isen't correct or something.
Keep up the good work.Its looking great!!!!
