Hello folks,I have a kk 2.0 control board on a HAL quadcopter frame, and no matter which P/I settings i change when i throttle up the quad always flies off in a certain direction. At first i thought…Continue

APM require mission planner?

Started this discussion. Last reply by paul mann Mar 13. 3 Replies

Hey folks,I was hoping someone could clarify for me, if mission planner is required in the field for telemetry from the APM? The reason i ask is i have a lack of a good laptop, and was wondering if i…Continue

"I have heard that many people have problems with deadcat style of configuration. It has the front motors further apart - so the APM thinks the motor aren't where they are. Arducopter configuration doesn't have an option to specify the new…"

"I had the same issue and found this video 9XR Throttle Curve Using Expo It made a world of a difference. I haven't had any issues, but I am not an aggressive flyer "

Harry Gibson replied to Finnius's discussion 9XR throttle too sensitive
"I've never used the sonar - we have one, but didn't find it necessary. altitude hold is accurate to within a few inches without it so it would only be necessary if you want to follow variations in the ground surface at a fixed distance. I…"

Finnius replied to Finnius's discussion 9XR throttle too sensitive
"Perfect! Thanks for your input. Much appreciated. I will change the p accel value, possibly make two throttle curves, and i am also getting a sonar. That should sort out the throttle issues. But the deadcat still wants to fly forward all the time so…"

Harry Gibson replied to Finnius's discussion 9XR throttle too sensitive
"Hi,   I wouldn't really recommend doing it this way. It's probably ok in modes where the throttle is under manual control (i.e. stabilise) but not ideal in alt-hold, loiter etc.   In those modes your throttle stick is used to…"

Finnius replied to Finnius's discussion 9XR throttle too sensitive
"I think i may have this sorted out. I am experimenting with throttle curves, in particular the expo throttle curve on the 9XR which should hopefully give me a stable hover. I am also putting a sonar module on the quad to help in altitude hold…"

9XR throttle too sensitive

Hey folks,I have a 9XR that i just started using to fly my APM deadcat quad with.The problem is that the throttle stick is way too sensitive for me.I used to fly the quad with a cheaper radio set and the throttle stick seemed great. I had too move the stick 'miles' to get it to change speed - which is what i like.Now with the 9XR i only have to move the throttle stick a few mm and my quad is shooting up through the sky. Also, today when i was flying the quad it was a bit too high in the sky so…See More

Finnius replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"Hello again, I have put the APM in its black enclosure, it has black foam over the barometer and is nice and sealed up. I attempted to graph the same variables you graphed above for comparison (attached below). It appears that the altitude is now…"

"do you have a legit apm? I've got the rctimer version, and their setup guide explicitly tells you to glue a piece of black foam over the barometer (haha) very last picture in the first post:…"

"Ahha! Perhaps its my barometer then. I mentioned my concerns for prop wash at the start - It is not protected from sunlight at the moment - but i have an enclosure it will be going into ASAP. I read up…"

Austin Suhler replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"Upon reviewing your logs, I think it's most likely you landed during those periods ;) That still does not explain your GPS errors. If you look at the reported barometer altitude in the dataflash logs, something is incredibly off. Note that the…"

Finnius replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"Hi Austin, I was thinking those pauses where there is very little vibration recorded is when I had landed the quad on the ground – before taking off for hover again?"

Finnius replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"Haha, sorry -  here is the IMU .log and the mission planner .tlog for the same flight i think. Do they open up alright? Thanks for your time trying to figure this out much appreciated."

Austin Suhler replied to Finnius's discussion Loiter Not Work
"There is something significantly more going on here than vibrations. I have vibrations only slightly lower than yours on one of my SK-450's that has 160+ autonomous hours of flight on it, without a single incident. Can you post both the…"

"haha, youre making this pretty painful man. just post the log file. i am going to use mission planner to look at the recorded data as outlined here http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/downloading-and-analyzing-data-logs-in-mission-planner/"
