I think Richard's solution is better :)

Just created a mod for apm planner 2.0 that allows you to trigger flight modes using keystrokes. I'm working on another mod that will allow me to use a midi foot pedal board to trigger flight modes and expression pedals for rate/gain tuning.

If anyone is interested and would like to take advantage of key commands for flight modes, just reply here and I'll forward you the details.

I have both set to 500 already. So I don't know what else to try.

In Stabilize mode you are directly controlling throttle output where as in throttle-assisted modes, you are making a request to ascend/descend at a given rate.  The parameter you are interested in is PILOT_VELZ_MAX.  Default for Iris is 250.  Just double that and set it to 500 and it will give it a mush more responsive feel.  PILOT_ACCEL_Z controls the acceleration and is also set at 250, but I feel like 250 is adequate.  See parameter descriptions here:

In stab mode if I go full throttle it takes off straight up very fast as you would expect. In alt hold or pos hold however it goes up but much much slower. Anybody know what I need to turn up to increase throttle authority? Thx

@DG Yes I have a Taranis! Like the way it hooks on the lip of the antenna base great design.  Perfect man thanks!!!!

Comment by DG on June 7, 2015 at 6:01pm

I should have asked if you have a Taranis :)

That was a link to the adapter. You still need the main bracket mount.
