Hi there!I am currently using the rainy days to setup my APM2.5. Now, I got a Mediatek MTK3329 GPS from flytron.com quite some while ago (used it with MultiWii via I2C at that time).this GPS also…Continue
"hmm, but this then would mean there cannot be a min & max alt defined for the fence. or how can one then leave the fence?
I am still dreaming of a fence that really ensures the copter to reside within boundaries in all dimensions and it bounces…"
"I personally use only the default position of the arms, but even with the "FPV"-postition the difference is so little that this will not be of severe impact.
there is no side-effect caused by the spider-form of the frame, as mentioned…"
"I was not aware that Ublox is that much better than Mediatek.
But sure, will give it a try.
Btw, when looking to the logs even the Mediatek gives quite reasonable good HDOP and satcount. Where would I see in the logs the difference between a good…"
"randy: thanks again for your help.
i can deliver dataflash logs lateron. currently quite busy in my job.
on that copter I am using a non-3DR mediatek-GPS. This is also a difference to my good working copter that has a UBLOX.
can this cause the issue…"
"i have now moved the external compass even higher. it is in total 100mm away from power cables and ESCs. in total when hovering the copter takes approx. 12.5A.
I still cannot get proper loiter with that copter, even though the compass offsets look…"
"@randy: thanks for your fast response. no, i did not mis-name the files.
this is exaclty, what i am saying and what makes me confused.
I have several frames, but I am flying usually only one and the same frame per day, at least i did so when picking…"
"I am somehow confused when it comes to the magfield influence by the electrical components as such.
I have several copters and when looking to one (warthox-frame) which has excellent loiter the graph shows quite clearly that the throttle has impact…"
"exactly, i am talking about hovering in stab/acro-mode, not loiter/alt-hold. i will probably give the machanic resistance & throttle curve on my transmitter a try.
i just thought there might be one of the many settings in arducopter that is…"
"maybe a stupid question, but is there a way to configure the throttle stick less sensitive? what i am looking for is a way to adjust and hold altitude in a better way. once reaching the point where my copter hovers, a small little change on the…"
"I love the fence feature. Really makes fun to limit the area for flying.
That would be even more fun, if AC would support a minimum alt as well.
Based on that teaching other to fly copters could be much more safe.
Moreover, what if instead of…"
