"Has anyone had any issues with the sonar data not being used in the altitude solution? I have ensured that it is enabled, and tested that I was getting output in CLI mode. It acted as though it was only operating on Baro. Log is attached. Any help…"
"I also carry the same Arducopter Hexa kit that jDrones carries. Right now there are no individual parts, only kits. I currently have one in stock, but I am located in Texas, USA. I imagine that shipping might be cheaper from jDrones once they have…"
I was thinking about something similar. There are at least 2 data-driven tuning techniques that I'm aware of -Virtual Reference Feedback Tuning, and Fictitious Reference Iterative Tuning - that could probably be adapted to auto-tune…"
"ArduPilot is not optimized for EasyStar. A lot of the development and testing work has been done with the EasyStar and the default gain values in the header file come mostly from working with EasyStar.
However, 2.5.1 changes the control code to…"
"I don't know about that, I think it depends on the plane, you can usually add ailerons to EasyStar or most similar planes. I added them to my GWS SlowStik, but I reduced dihedral to 2% or You could get a similar plane with ailerons built in.…"
"From my understanding, if you're using an IMU it's best to have ailerons. Most users on this site use Easy Star but that doesn't have ailerons. Are there a couple RC planes that you'd recommend for the ArduIMU?"
"I started Ardrino embedded development with this project last year, you should have a big advantage, just start... Maybe after I tune the PIDs for normal fast flight, I may do high wind conditions PIDs too, but how do you measure cross winds besides…"
"That's fantastic news! Snow and wind? Isn't that what you want to test in? That way some yahoo like me in calm conditions should do fine, LOL. j/k
Will this be someting that someone brand new to autopilotinig can do? I was in a robotics…"
