Andrew. Looks like you have a big problem. I am not sure if 3DR frames are designed for big motors and big propellers but way how they are in your hexa is bad and you cannot use it like that. all jDrones frames are fully tested with 12" propellers. I would suggest to use only 10" props on that your current hexa.

Hello.. Shiny new hexa with all the toys about to leave bench (I hope).. however prop clearance issue! Or am I missing something.. 880 motors 11x4.7 props

thanks

Hi Guys

I was in the middle of tuning for my Loiter and suddenly the quad started coming down out of control and crashed. Luckily no damage but it went out of control. this is the log i appreciate if any one can help and see what went wrong. thanks

@Randy

Randy thank you for the response. Frankly I dont really know what to look for in the log. any idea what i should expect in the log? sorry I have never done this before.

@Avionics

Have you reviewed the logs? That would be a good starting point to see what is happening.

I have a H.A.L quad by hobby king with 1200kv motors and freshly assembled. It flies beautiful in stablise and alt Hold and when i try to loiter it doesnt hold its position. The GPS both LEDs are locked and steady before i start. It drifts and loses altitute very slowly. Tried playing with PIDs but no luck. I ran out of ideas appreciate if anyone can throw some light. Does the WP loiter config PIDs have any effect whilst on loiter or it is only for when on Auto mode? Thanks for the help in advance.

@Shayam, if you want to experiment with quaternions, DCM, euler angles, etc. you might want to check out the various pluggable AHRS subsystems in paparazzi.

@Randy, Thanks for that nice explanation on accelerometer with quads! Now, my understanding gets better.

I would want to try out Quaternions once myself, it seems different people are having different opinion. My friend, who works purely on Quad uses quaternion. He mentioned to be that it was 'much' faster than DCM. But, since truth is one but scenarios differ, I will ask him if he can lend me some benchmarking ;)
