I am flying with Ardu Plane Version 2.4. I am attempting a specific mission, and I need to perform a change in my elevator trim parameter. I looked into using the do set parameter, and I saw in the…Continue

Just curious if anyone else is having this problem.I tried upgrading to Ardu Plane v2.26 and my differential ailerons are not working in stability, FBW or Auto modes. I still have manual control, but…Continue

Magnetometer on APM airplane

Started this discussion. Last reply by Chris Anderson Sep 27, 2011. 3 Replies

Question for the designers. Will APM (for airplanes) support a magnetometer any time soon? I understand that usually you don't need it because you can rely on the GPS, but I am interested in a…Continue

Unable to communicate with airplane side xbee modem

I have been researching this all day and I cannot figure it out. I bought the Xbee kit from DIY Drones a few weeks ago, and the system worked great right off the bat, but now I am having problems…Continue

"Thanks Rigel... after some investigation i found out that there is a -80dB RSSI threshold for the Xbee pro 900 that's why didn't see the number moving."

"It probably won't change if you are stationary.  Try moving one of your Xbees about 100ft away from the other and you should see changes. "

"When you tick the RSSI check box in the loopback test, is the number supposed to change to reflect the quality of the signal ? Mine always stays at -82 no matter what... is something wrong ? Thanks."

Do Set Parameter

I am flying with Ardu Plane Version 2.4. I am attempting a specific mission, and I need to perform a change in my elevator trim parameter. I looked into using the do set parameter, and I saw in the wiki that this is currently not being used Ardu Plane. Just curious if anyone has been able to use this feature, or if there is any intention by the developers of making this function available?See More

"Had the same issue as you, although at this stage I am only bench testing with a basic cardboard plane.   I use a tool called Grep http://www.wingrep.com (which originally came from Unix), to locate "aileron" inside the…"

"Andrew, I have been trying to get inverted flight to work for quite some time now, with no luck. I think i finally figured out what the problem was. The inverted flight channel does not account for the pitch compensation parameter. I happen to have…"

"Great catch, didn't even think to look. I am curious, were you just browsing through the code and found this, or was there somewhere on the website that tipped you off to these changes."

Steve Gemmell replied to Bryan K's discussion Differential Ailerons not working in ArduPlane v 2.26
"Bryan, The number for the program a differential Aileron channel has changed. The related code is now in RC_Channel_aux.cpp. THis whole area of code seems to have been significantly changes from 24-->26 You now need RC_CH5 =4…"

Differential Ailerons not working in ArduPlane v 2.26

Just curious if anyone else is having this problem.I tried upgrading to Ardu Plane v2.26 and my differential ailerons are not working in stability, FBW or Auto modes. I still have manual control, but if i flip to stability mode and roll the aircraft, only the aileron on channel 1 will react. I have RC_CH5 = 1 in my configuration file. They worked no problem in 2.24.Anyone else notice this?See More

"When I was having the same problem, I tuned my proportional gain down to .25 and it did the trick. I didn't mess with the Integral or the Derivative gains."

Bryan K replied to Mike's discussion Hard vs. soft waypoint altitudes?
"I don't think it will help. I have had the same problem. In theory, if you don't use a CONDITION_CHANGE_ALT the plane should try to climb there as fast as possible to minimize the error between alt command and actual alt. I have tried the…"
