For some AUTO missions, failsafe needs to be disabled. When the mission prohibits heading towards home from any point (could hit a mountain) or is expected to fly beyond reliable control range. Even…Continue
"Note that when it "fails to climb" , near line 3000, and 3600 , in both cases your groundspeed is above 7.5m/s
the ability to maintain speed seems to be below 7m/s - also, remember that headwind reduces that number.
The priority of…"
I do not use Mission Planner, (works poorly on Linux due to .NET lock-in) , Using APM Planner, but if you can make it set an unsupported mode using simple GUI, (like a droplist)- that's a nasty bug. - you should report it…"
"Once I had a fork for APM based on this code working : https://github.com/3yc/hott-for-ardupilot
I had trouble adapting it for pixhawk - trouble disabling read on serial while sending (HoTT is bi-directional on pin.)
So I did not adapt it, but…"
"yes, voltage is a better indicator, less precise prediction when you are 50% into the flight time, but more accurate prediction of the end, like "5minutes left."
it also handles half-charged batteries, and different capacities better…"
"Your BATT_CAPACITY is 3670mAh.
your FS_BATT_MAH is 3600
So you are asking for FS when there is less than 3600mAh left.
your CURR.CurrTot indicates that you've used 70mAh right before RTL.
So.. everything is fine. (which is pretty usual…"
"The beauty of open source, is that it will be released when developers agree it's done, good enough, tested, and works.
This is not proprietary stuff that needs to be selling on a specific date, however incomplete or defective.
You are free to…"
"1: try droidplanner too, suggest for both authors to add this feature (not sure if droidplanner is still missing it)
- APM planner can do that to, (in case you have a laptop with something else than windows)
2: hard to say if it did, without logs /…"
"it's more prone to circles (toilet bowl effect) at speed, and depending on yaw angle.
anyway, from the little screenshots and video you posted, yes - this was a typical behavior caused by bad compass.
Upload your logs to…"
"if you have a working redundant power supply, (if you can disconnect the 6p DF13 the primary (powermodule) , and pixhawk redumes running)
THEN this is a clear sign of possible software crash, you are running beta - 3.2
If you have power…"
"ok, I guess you still won't believe my conclusion, like before - but what you *actually* can see, it Chan3 drop proportionally to 4, because motor 3 is the opposite motor of 4.
Like I told you, you lost lift on 4, so the opposite motor *must*…"
"ESC's have their own power supply. - they often beep on PWM loss.
PWM goes away when pixhawk loses power. - so they beep. (Pixhawks PWM microcontroller shuts down too)
Redundancy; Pixhawk is able to take up to three different power…"
