I am currently in the pre-test flight stages of getting my quad up in the air, but I am still a little confused about the setup.
My quad is currently mounted to a stand (hasn't flown yet) and I notice that when the throttle is in neutral position both the front and rear motors spin (+ configuration). I am guessing this is stability mode because when I flip my mode switch on channel 5, no motors are spinning on the throttle neutral position?
What I dont understand is why are only the front and rear motors spinning in stability mode? Both motors are rotating clockwise, so wouldnt that make my quad spin clockwise as well when it gets up into the air?? How does Stability Mode work and what is suppose to actually be happening??
In addition are all the PID values suppose to be zero in the configurator tool?
Also I thought the ArduCopter Project hadn't yet implemented Altitude Hold yet so why is there a Altitude Hold section in the configurator tool? Is this possible with the current alpha code?
Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
