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
"the first thing you can do is fixubuntu.com :)
from 14.10 that ends.
and of course, you are free to choose distro you like, I only suggested a popular one. you use Mint , so you're set anyway I guess, it should work fine with the Ubuntu…"
"-there is no change in microcontroller/or the MAX IC that overlays video, so your "older" OSD is not problem.
-1.0 is a part of spash screen from an older version. - it's not always updated, but I think there were newer after…"
"open Log (APM Planner 2 , or MP) - , and graph this;
CURR.Volt - (battery voltage)
ATT.DesRoll (desired roll angle)
ATT.Roll (actual roll angle)
you can see how Roll follows DesRoll worse as voltage drops.
"minimosd-extra can also display mAh used, not sure about the secondary battery (as most avoid that mess) - but otherwise, I see no big difference.. to mee, it seems MinimOSD is easier to configure, and it's multi-screen option is a…"
"lowest logged voltage is 9.23volt, it was falling to the ground soon after at about 10v. the ThrOut shows that it tried to maintain altitude.
The prolonged time with instability may have been caused by the ESC's - IF they have a…"
"It's not doing anything different for planes.
Try APM planner, if you use windows and are in driver hell, try Linux.
But I guess your Pixhawk may have a defective port, if you ate using usb, and the same setup worked with another Pixhawk"
"You had a mechanical/esc failure of one motor/propeller/or prop adapter.
you can see when the quad loses ability to maintain proper attitude.
If you graph ATT.DesPitch vs ATT.Pitch , or Roll vs DesRoll - it's obvious."
"I knew you meant arduplane, but you said APM, so I joked.
There's some work in that direction, but not in master yet.
And I doubt the code will run on APM, Pixhawk will most likely be a minimum.
In the meantime, check papparazzi project."
