A query regarding the Throttle Rate P parameter.
In a recent test of firmware 2.5 I was flying in Stabilise (Simple) mode. I had great difficulty trying to maintain a constant altitude. The Hexa seems incredibly sensitive to throttle input. In fact, it seems quite impossible to maintain a constant altitude. The effect is that the Hexa is continuosly moving up and down (under my constant corrective inputs). When I could (briefly) keep a stable altitude, it would lose or gain altitude as soon as I began to move about. This then required constant corrections to the throttle, some vertical yoyoing and inevitably a hard landing (when I started to panic!). Fortunately I managed not to break anything for once!
If I adjust Throttle Rate P downwards, will this help to maintain a consistent altitude in manual Stabilise mode? It is currently set at 0.35. Any advice appreciated..
APM1 (firmware v 2.5)
Stabilize is a totally manual throttle. You can adjust your radio to give you an expo curve for the throttle, but adjusting the gains won't work. They aren't used in manual throttle.
Thanks Jason, I will have a go at setting up an expo curve. I have a Spektrum DX8, so shouldnt be a prob.
Paul did you ever have any luck with this?
