"Hi, I would be really grateful if someone could give me some advice regarding the allegro sensors. My octocopter has the potential to draw a high current (about 180amps) so looking at the Allegro ACS758 200 Amp Series Hall Current Sensor, is it…"
hi developers!some times ublox modules when cold start reports "3D fix" with high error - with hdop = 4.0this mean accuracy +/-1km around real point.before each fly with ublox module i check home position and reset APM when it incorrect.in arduplane code after 5 first fixes point stores as home. if in this time hdop > 2.0 it may be incorrectthis problem fixed in arducopter firmware using parameter// @Description: GPS Hdop value below which represent a good position. Used for pre-arm…See More
"This sounds sensible to me. I think it would also be a good safety feature to prevent accidental motor start until armed (similar to APM:Copter?) and to ensure a correct 'home' location for non-telemetry users.
sometimes navigation modules does not correctly identify the position and height after startupbut after some "good" data it used as home positionevery time I check using OSD distance to the home point and the height, in rare cases, by the time of the start of the height may be changed to +100 metersI suggest functional expansion "arming motor procedure" or move saving of home position to first time when thottle stick going > 10% See More
I tried the same with same results, throttle cannot be set correctly. I cannot find the exact tutorial any more which explains what parameters X-Plane has to send. Actually I never managed to get the HIL up and running for a quad and…"
"I'm not sure the arducopter HIL stuff works since we added inertial navigation to the code. I use to use AeroSimRC but gave up because it's accelerometer stuff didn't seem accurate. Michael Oborne is actually more the…"
I spent a lot of time to connect quadcopter to simulator. I tried the AC 3.0.1Beta HIL firmware, after flashing I've done setup - resetbut the calibration radio does not startthen i go to advanced parameters and load my previous calibrarion data using compare paramerers buttonafter that i see green bars of radio.next problem ac 3 cant be armed in hil mode with activated pre-arm check parameter. I deactivated this optioni try xplane 9 & 10 simulators with qro-x modelwhen throttle stick in…See More
"I received my APM 2.5 board back from 3DR on Friday complete with it's new fuse! To my surprise it also was shipped back to me in a brand new enclosure! I had purposefully not sent my case with the board for fear it being lost.
"I received a confirmation today from Lexie at 3DR that my board has been shipped back to me via Fed-EX. So it would appear that they are currently on time with their original schedule of 3-5 day turn around. As this was day 3 since their receipt of…"
