Hello all.. Hopefully this is the right place for this topic.
I am using an E-Flite Apprentice as my host UAV. I have had 4 successful flights so far with APM2 and am relatively pleased, but I think I need to do some fine tuning and looking for some advice of where to start.
The most peculiar of the items is that in just about every case where I am flying to waypoints the plane circles the waypoint before continuing, shouldn't it fly to it or close to it and keep going? Or do I have something set wrong? In the screenshot below, there were 4 waypoints, 3 of which it circled.
Just need a nudge in the right direction. Thanks!!
That was the behavior when the plane missed a WP(flew outside the WP radius). In the latest version I thought this was fixed so that if you crossed a line perpendicular to the flight path and through the WP it will switch to the next WP. Are you useing 2.5x ?
Fairly certain it was 2.5. Is there a way to tell directly from APM?
If you have a log file from the flash card, then look at it in an editor (notepad) and you will see the version in the output, Here is an example...
Log 18, start 386, end 552
Log] dump 6
Dumping Log 6, start pg 1879, end pg 1900
Free RAM: 2553
GROUND START - 11 commands in memory
Yep. Still on 2.4. Hmm.. Will have to try the update again this weekend. Thanks for the help, will report back if this does fix the issue. Thanks
