What is the proper level calibration method for a flying wing like the RVJET? I am having a tough time getting FBWA and LOITER to work correctly without the aircraft diving into the ground. I almost have to pitch the aircraft 25 degree nose up for it to fly level. that doesn't seem right?

Hello,
I bought a skywalker with apm 2.6 & fpv, I learned the basics of piloting aircraft manual. I would take a few days of training to learn the basic use of mission planner and apm 2.6 against remuneration. I am ready to move me in europe and to provide the material, I have not found anyone in France for training so if you can provide me with this please do not hesitate to contact me

What you are describing doesn't sound right, but I think the arming function is worth a shot.
Comment by Kobus on June 26, 2014 at 6:48am

I am using old firmware 2.74 to be precise 

so what you think I should do is upgrade the firmware and then use this setting?

Comment by Dave Smith on June 26, 2014 at 6:24am

There sure is. It was added not long ago. You can arm from the console or by holding the rudder to the right for a couple seconds. Use setting "1", which is "THR_MIN PWM when disarmed". I would go ahead and allow rudder arming as well. If you just decide to go fly without your GCS, you will want to be able to arm the motor.

@Dave Smith

Hi Dave thanks for the reply

I switch my radio on first then plug plane

then I wait until plane has got solid blue for gps lock

then I go to mission planner and click connect

motor starts up for a couple of seconds and then stops

I dont think there is a "arming" feature for planes?

Comment by Dave Smith on June 26, 2014 at 5:07am
@Kobus,

I have seen mine do this if I boot up the APM without the radio being on first. Also, are you using the "arming" feature in the APM?
Comment by Kobus on June 26, 2014 at 4:31am

Hi 

When I connect to my ground station my plane's motor starts to run for about 3 seconds and then stops again.

I don't know how to fix this problem, it is very dangerous 

If some one knows how to fis this please help

Its and apm 2.6
