This is a thread to submit ArduCopter configuration files (PID settings) for common airframes. Once they are reviewed, they will be placed in the manual here so that others may use them.
Along with your config file (saved from the Mission Planner), please list:
Would like it too, with stock motors.
I loaded the 3DR parameters fie from the wiki, but only PID settings, and it is a lot more stable. So I can fine tune from there.
Well I'm trying too...
Flips violently though... trying to figure out the problem.
(Also using their motors and ESCs)
If your quad flips then either you have a propeller on upside down, motor direction is wrong, receiver to apm wiring is wrong, or motor to apm is wrong. To test the receiver it would be easy to use Mission Planner, go to setup and the radio calibration page. Move your radio controls around, make sure each control input is what you expect it to be. Next in mission planner get a console from the APM and run test. Select motors.
Check the wiki, make sure your results are correct. After you are done with that you should recalibrate your
ESCs. Maybe it didn't calibrate the first time. Check the wiki, some ESCs need to be calibrated one at a time. To do that you remove the esc input from the apm, connect to the throttle port on the receiver... follow the steps in the wiki. Most flips are either cause be ESCs that need calibrating, or two wires swapped.
Tripple checked props last night. Correct props, correct rotation.
They all seem fine.
Ran the setup>motors test in terminal. I admit - first time I had 2 motors swapped (that was last night) but I fixed that. Even redid the ESC calibration after swapping those motors.
On the terminal motor test in order the motors fire : Front Right, Rear Right, Rear Left, Front Left.
I did not however try calibrating the ESCs individually though - sounds kinda bizarre but I'll try that tonight when I am home again.
Just starting my build of 450, however I found this site, apparently successful.
Thanks, Jerry. Is that with the 2.6 code?
Yes it is.
and a 2200ma Turnigy battery.
I'm expecting my 6000ma LiPo soon. I'll check to see if the weight has any effect on the params.
Excellent. Posted in the manual here.
Jerry I am having issues with a very touch throttle in STABILIZE.
I'm using the 10" props with a 4S LiPo. The DJI 450 recommended is 8" for 4S, but I thought I might be able to get more efficiency and stability using the larger props. I'm using the DJI stock 30A ESC and Motors (920KV) and I'm using APM 2.5
With Default params, the the smallest increment on the throttle will change the quad from a rocket ship to a stone.
Here are my questions:
