I'm looking for screenshots (like in the wiki pages, AC2 tweaks) of ideal PID settings from multicopter setups like mine.
I'm flying a APM1 hexa (2.5.5) with 924kv motors and 10x4.5 APC props.
This is just to have an idea of what ideal PID for a similar setup would look like. I know every setup will still react differently but at least I know where to look for essential changes.
At the moment, all I terms are at zero. I don't have a clue what the minimum values should look like. Would come in handy if I have a reference.
I hope some people will be able to help me. Thanks in advance.
I know you may have heard this before but there's really no "ideal set up" for any one multi
I'm fairly new too but the way I tuned mine was on advice from someone on RCG....
Set your mode switch so that you can switch to acro mode
Tune acro (rate) mode as best you possibly can, adjust the rate_P by increasing the number until it oscilates (that's too much) then turn it down until the oscilations go away), tuning the rate_P is the most important step as all other modes depend on it
Once that is done you can move onto stabilise P etc, the I settings are for persistent external forces such as wind/poor balance/motor etc
CHANNEL 6 TUNING:
If you can then enable Ch_6 tuning in the config and set it for each parameter you are tuning (one at a time), that makes it much easier and faster to tune in the air, once you have it dialed in (yes assign ch6 on your radio to a dial not a switch) you can plug it into your PC and change which parameter the dial adjusts next and save your changes
Hope this helps
Is that the "Joebar" NG Pirates method?
Think I'll have to program Acro again, I only fly with Stabilize at the moment.
I do have Rate_KP on CH6.
And the hexa is not flying all that bad, but only the P parameters are set, no I parameters or D parameters.
rate_roll_p, rate_pitch_p at .18
rate_roll_i, rate_pitch_i at 0
rate_roll_d, rate_pitch_d at .004
stab_d at 0
That should work out of the box.
What about the other parameters?
Currently all of my parameters are almost stock parameters.
Rate P = 0.12 and Stabilize P = 4,6. And my hexa is not flying all that bad.
But what about the other parameters? I terms en D terms? don't they also need tuning to get good results in loiter mode or other special modes?
For example, loiter is not working very well, my hexa drifts away immediately. It's like the hexa is not fighting the wind, it just drifts off...
Doesn't anyone have screenshot of their PID values?
