I have tried two attempts at auto flight both have ended with the same result. The copter starts heading one way and then comes back and then it tris to move towards the way point. But over compensates and then loses altitude and tries to recover it self but the pitch is to great.
I am attaching two videos: The first one with the building in the background was the first flight that the copter dipped and tried to recover and then I switched to manual and ended up hitting the power line.
The second video is the one at the airport and it started going good and then when it was trying to loiter at the wp it dipped and had a lot of pitch in it and just before hitting the ground you can see the copter trying to level itself. but little to late. Also attached is the log from the second flight.
This the log for the second flight.
The videos will be shortly. I have to get the uploaded to youtube first.
3DR quad, APM1, Stock pid settings except for the speed of which it moves to the wp.
Here is the link to FLight 1 video. As you will see it dips and then heads straight for the building.
Here is the second flight video. Similar to the first. It seems that the angle it tried to recover itself was way to much and lost altitude and couldn't recover.
Needing some help
Have you had any progress? I am also struggling with getting the Auto modes to work on the 3RD quad.
Sorry it has taken so long to get back to this. I have been working in making some other things. I went out the other day with all the updates and tried. I have had to slow the pids down alot it seems so that it wont lose control. It did fly very well for me.
I also got my auto modes to work after i reflashed the firmware... seems something was wrong on a deeper level...
