With a new replacement board my impression of the PX4 is much, much better so I am removing the initial post. All works better including a perfect connection to MP every single time via usb and no…Continue

PX4 motors rev up after yaw command

Started this discussion. Last reply by Andy Horka Sep 22, 2013. 1 Reply

Just got my new octo into the air and seems fine with incredible loiter but after a yaw from stick or automation, there is an aggressive rev up of the motors. Tried a bunch of gain changes but no…Continue

Are there any plans to activate the angle option for a waypoint? Currently I have to add a CONDITION_YAW command but the operation would be so much better if the angle could be set right in the…Continue

I was looking for a controller board for a large octo I'm building and figured I'd go with a DJI WKM-M or a ZeroUAV YS-X6 but after looking at there flight planning software my jaw dropped!!!Both…Continue

"Hi Eran, Brandon is correct but 0,-1,0 are not realistic numbers and seem to be another example of the 1.2.99 mission planner weirdness."

"Any official word yet on why were are getting the 0,0,0 compass calibration message only in 1.2.99 version of Mission Planner with firmware 3.1.3? Went back to 1.2.98 (or earlier) and get a proper compass calibration message."

"My compass comes up as 0,0,0 and the altitude starts of high and then settles. My quad was stellar with my new new PX4 but with new firmware and new mission planner it's not flyable."

"Just tried 3.1.3 on my test quad with a PX4 and not only do I get 0,0,0 but my horizon is inverted and no amount of sensor calibration helps??? My new PX4 was amazing until this firmware update. Wussap? Andy"

Andy Horka replied to Rob_Lefebvre's discussion Anybody flying PX4?
"Got a few sessions completed with the new PX4 and it's stellar! Loiter is like being stapled to the sky, waypoints are superb and RTL lands about a foot or less from arming point. And this is with one compass number of 400, unbalanced props, no…"

Andy Horka commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Senator Feinstein: "It should be a crime for a private individual to arm a drone."
"UAVs are going to be big business in a couple years and all this snarff is to restrict the peasants from profiting in what's to come. This is just like the goof from Google trying to ban UAVs because it takes away from his business. If anyone…"

"I hear your frustration Florian but as I mentioned previously it was a Naza V2 that totaled my awesome octo. Two of my very experience flying buddies had their Nazas go nuts within the last two months. Nothing is perfect but the recent versions…"

"Hi Joe, This is a quick vid of my PX4 with un-calibrated ESCs ( done now ;-) ), props out of the bag and gains turned down a bit and no other tuning. Pretty close to out of the box flying, if you don't count a couple hours build time. "

Andy Horka replied to Thomas Rutter's discussion Arducopter or Russian Roulette?
"I have zero crashes after hundreds of flights directly due to anything Arducopter based. A few wobbles but all recoverable. My Naza V2 caused massive destruction of my gorgeous octo so go figure. Anything will cack at some point but so far the most…"
