THR_ALT_I can anyone explain it?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Christoph Nov 19, 2012. 2 Replies

Hey,Can anyone explain to me what THR_ALT_I is for? I don't get it..I've set my THR_RATE_P using sonar so that the copter reacts accurate to obstacles, but I'm a bit unsure how ALT_I affects the…Continue

"I found only one company that does this, I wonder why no research institutes are doing this: http://www.aeryon.com/products/avs/aeryon-skyranger.html"

Christoph replied to Richard Kennedy's discussion Waterproof quad??
"I wonder if it is really needed to have a completely closed case.. has anyone tried to just make the components waterproof to e.g. fly in rain? (of course this probably won't work if you are actually landing in water)"

Loiter Speed and Rate I difference?

Hi there,On http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/AC2_LoiterMode it says that speed I is not user editable - however, I've got it in the mission planner and can set the values.On this page: http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/AC2_loiter_PID it says that it is editable...I saw it is not in Jasons simulator. What I found out so far is that if I have…See More

Fine tuning stabilize and loiter pids?

Hi there,I've tuned my copter (crius board + gps) so that stabilize, alt hold and loiter mode are "acceptable" but not perfect.The problem I have is that I see the movements or rarely oscillations, and am not sure which P value to change. For stabilize mode I've got the rate p and stabilize p, for loiter mode I've got the loiter speed and loiter rate. I'm having problems distinguishing these values based on the results I see.Can anyone give me hints how to fine tune these parameters so I can…See More

Randy replied to Christoph's discussion Difference ACRO_P vs RATE_P?
"Christoph,      The ACRO_P is only used in Acro mode and it's a multiplier applied to the pilot's input to come up with the desired rate.  I forget the exact units but for example, if the pilot's input if full…"

Difference ACRO_P vs RATE_P?

Hi there,Can anyone tell me what the difference between ACRO_P and RATE_P is in copter behaviour?ACRO_P is the angle per second, and RATE_P the desired motor thrust, I'm a bit confused, aren't both affecting the same behaviour?How do you distinguish and configure this correctly?I can fly my KK2 and it's previous version quite good and now I'm trying to configure a dji f450 clone with 11x5 props, 850kv motors and the CRIUS board.It feels far more difficult than my older boards, but I think this…See More

"Thanks for the hint It's a bit difficult to find out what you 're looking for if you never had anything to do with arduinos at all... I have no idea what a breakout board is :)"
