"If you go to the mission planner's Advanced PArameters list you can see all parameters and their values. The compass offsets appear as COMPASS_OFS_X, Y and Z. The inertial navigation offsets appear as INAV_ACORR_X, Y and…"
Well done for diagnosing that the issue is the barometer. There's no question that your baro readings (top graph) are jumping around by hundreds of meters. Arducopter has no chance of being able to do…"
I experienced the same problem while flying ardu-hexacopter (barometric sensor is very noisy while testing the altitude hold). I flew the first flight well but in the next flight (different time with battery and place change),…"
"+1 Eric (actually it deserves more than +1)
Kevin you do find some really important issues and let us all be happy about that. Finding an error is in my world just as important as writing new code, but remember that the person who wrote the code (or…"
No unfortunately not. Note it was on 2.8.1 I had the error.
In Randy's post above he only looks on the baro spike, but the problem started before. You can see that the copter is not doing a sharp 90 deg right turn as it should,…"
Experienced the exact same thing a few days ago whilst flying a mission. After checking the logs and google earth files i saw a massive spike in the baro readings just when the quad fell out of the sky. Randy is assisting me with this but…"
"but remember a lot of us normally fly without telemetry. Why not just let the SW judge if vibration is acceptable for Z (later also X and Y) inav or the vibration is so bad that it should use the "old" but ok 2.8.1 approach.
The user will…"
I think that feature might be able to save a copter or two e.g. if the frame goes in resonance. It will also be easy for the user to judge if the vibration level is ok (you will have a flag in the log that will tell when and if the…"
"I know the over water problem, but if we have a battery failsafe I guess we will only have very limited time left and then gaining altitude seems wrong. If we "just" have a throttle failsafe situation I will agree that a Ch7 option could…"
"I don't know enough of the log and SW yet so Im guessing a bit here, but we have high roll and pitch in. I think we can make adjustment in RTL. Thats great when we have the copter in RTL and it's on it's way to hit a big tree on the…"
Started with a Parrot AR Drone, but got tired of lack of support for Android and Parrot's generel unwillingness to admit/solve problems etc.
I have now (oktober 12) switched to:
Arducopter Quad 1.0
ArduPilot Mega 2.5 with uBlox GPS
Spektrum DX8 Radio
FPV will be next, but for now just some flying and SW "checkout". Until now I'm very impressed.
