what is mavlink hil version? i uploaded just the standard 2.011.....
i think these are 2 separate issues.
1- the stabilize mode malfunction. i got this working correctly after i commented out the battery monitor function, reset via cli.
2- the altitude issue im not able resolve
are you using votlage monitor? i have not installed anything but apm 1.02
on Saturday i flew at last with success. Stabilization and RTL worked perfect even in really strong wind.
Here is my setup:
aircraft is high-wing, 2m wings span, very stable one.
APM of version 1.02, MTK16, no changes in APM code, except GPS configuration in APM_config.h, no additional sensors, just APM + OILPAN 2.0 + MTK16.
I had no waypoints set yet, just wanted to test stabilization and RTL. Anyway Saturday event wasn't without problems. First flight was terrible - i even didn't try to switch on RTL because stabilization didn't work. After switching on the stabi, airframe started make big waves. It was high enough so i just only guess the elevator went to its max (pulled). After i landed switch off/on, got locked home and flew again, stabilization worked perfect. I had not yet stabilization system installed on my models, but this works great - no wavering just straight flight.
I flew farther from me (500 meters) then i switched to RTL and aircrat returned to me ;o). I repeated this maneuver 3 times (against the wind, down the wind) and it worked still perfect.
But i had problems with log - the log is enabled but after my flights in the CLI i got unpleasant message from APM - no logs available, even if i the logs enabled (all). I erased and enabled logs bot nothing is recorded. Have somebody hint on it?
Next weekend - i try auto mode and if there will be more free time, i try to load APM 2.011 (or latest one, if there will be more recent).
