When ever I switch to Auto my motor switches off completely, it does an wonderful job of keeping the plane stable and trying to get to its waypoints, but doesn’t get very far due to no power.
I've tried setting the Airspeed m/s higher in the AMP PID config and tested on the ground, but not had any luck.
I would really appreciate any help or pointing in the right direction.
Yes, have performed the radio setup in the CLI and seems to be ok, would you like to see the results?
It doesn't work in the RTL mode either. I have also reversed the throttle channel and no change.
I ran the Radio test in the CLI and I can see in "in channel 3" the data moving up and down, how ever on the "out channel 3" I see 0 until I get to mid throttle then 100 at mid throttle then going past mid throttle it goes back to 0. The results are reversed if I disable throttle reversed, so it goes 100 - 0 - 100. Does that indicate to you that there is an issue? or is that normal output data?
Thanks Doug, I didn't think it was normal.
I have have been through the Radio setup in the CLI and i'm still getting the same output.
when i switch to RTL, my throttle cuts to zero and the aircraft does a right turn to come home. default alt is set to 50, but the airplane glides well below that. i need to go back to manual mode to recover. home location and mouse location altitudes are at zero in APM planner.
Stabilization mode works perfect today. flew the HawkSky today in 10+ winds.
checked my flight logs for today and im seeing altitude of 1992 which it way too high. this would make sense that the APM makes the plane descend and cuts power, but why is my altitude reading so off?
