"Are there some tips for tuning alt_hold? I find that I get a drop in altitude when moving forward or back and yes my APM has a cover and the baro is covered with a piece of foam inside the APM cover. I also find that the throttle control is very…"
"Another rant from me about hobbyking LiPo shipping, I had two rechargeable AA batteries (not LiPo's) in an order during the LiPo shipping debacle, it took 4 weeks for them to admit it hadn't actually shipped and for the consultant to…"
"OK, I think I may be reading the graph wrong :oops: . But we're still getting these large variations on height and pitch during the flight. Here's a smaller log from a Skywalker 1880 in a loiter in which there is a 22m variation in…"
We've been flying and testing v2.74b and v2.76 in a number of aircraft over the last three months namely two X8 flying wings, a Skywalker Condor 1880, a RvJet, a Multiplex Easyglider v2 and a 1.7m span twin boom own design pusher.We have problem with the X8's and the RvJet with loss of altitude in turns. I had quite a bit of correspondence with Paul Riseborough one of the developers, to try get to the bottom of this and we fixed a number of issues but our problem never went away.The graph…See More

A question: now that Arducopter is going over to 32 bit, what other of the existing 32 bit hardware will be compatible or compatible with some porting?"
"Euan, I'm looking for some first hand experience, ecalc gives one the theoretical numbers but says nothing about the quality and smoothness of a motor. I want to replace the motors on my quad but only want to buy once, I don't have the…"
i think i can correct it but want a clear view ur ailerons r reversed in automode or manual mode. If its auto change is to be done in the code else it has to be reversed using RC remote... let me know whats exactly it is
actually the same problem i had faced but my elevator movement was reversed
in autopilot so i tried to correct it by #define PITCH_REVERSE
but nothing happened later i found thaT this header is not at all used inside code so i just follow the logic in code and got the line to reverse the motion of either aileron or elevator in ... void pulse_servos(int roll, int pitch) //Normal mode
pulse_servo_2(90-pitch); //invert sign if you want to reverse the servo...
This is what i had changed then to work it well.
I did few tests and got semi success in few , hopefully i can make it this time atleast 80% success with little changes in trim as u recommended in ur blog failure and success.
Its very nice blog i will try to write the one ... it really helps ourselves and others
Hi, this must sound stupid, but how do you get the nice line logs in GE... My current position just constantly changes. I'm using a E406. I can't seem to get the right altitude data in the GS2 either.. Any help would be appreciated.
we're developing a UAV here in Newcastle, Australia. We've been experimenting with the ardupilot 2_7_1 for a few months. Having huge problems with altitude hold and throttle. We're using a petrol engine. We realize the original ardu is for electric. It seems there is not much data on petrol engines for ardu. We had a crash last week and lost the plane. We're going to rebuild the code from scratch and simplify it. Will get back on to you on our progress. Cheers,
