I've got a skywalker 1830 on APM that i'm getting 45min-1hr of flight time on. So far I've been unable to get a log for a complete flight. The log always cuts off the beginning of the flight. I…Continue

Does my Alt hold log look right?

Ive been trying to diagnose some altitude hold problems and I think im making progress. I had a lot of vibrations using kyosho gel and it was causing my altitude hold to freak out and make extreme…Continue

Flying in position hold today and I was noticing big fluctuations in my altitude hold. Sometimes the quad would randomly jump up 50Ft. Looking at the logs alt and dalt line up pretty well. But…Continue

"The fix is to buy a pixhawk or a pixhawk clone which has an SDCard.  This is just one of many reasons not to be using APM any more."

Logs cutting off on long flights???

I've got a skywalker 1830 on APM that i'm getting 45min-1hr of flight time on. So far I've been unable to get a log for a complete flight. The log always cuts off the beginning of the flight. I believe I have the bitmask set to the lowest logging parameters. Basically just GPS and mode changes. I'm assuming that on these longer flights the internal memory on the APM unit runs out and the log starts to over write the first part of the flight? Is there any fix for this? Possibly an external sd…See More

"Increase your RC_Feel to 15 and then lower your ATC_Accel_R_MAX and ATC_Accel_R_MAX Mine is currently set at ~40000 for both and 15000 for yaw. Should solve your issues if not already figured out. "

David Pulvermacher replied to FlyHigh's discussion Are Pixhawk vs APM gps config needs different?
"Doesn't seem to be the case... I've just configured my Pixhawk with the Neo 6-M that I used on the APM 2.6. Seems to work fine. However I'm confused by the Neo 7-M (RCTimer version) which I also have, having first tried to configure…"

Cannot get rid of vibration pixhawk on 3.2

I've been trying to get my vibrations in spec and I just cannot seem to do it. I have bought new props. Balanced my motors and props. I'm using a tarot 650 frame. I've made sure all my motors are on the same plane and level. Still I get warning level amounts of vibration just hovering. I'm sure with more vigorous flight i'll get a fail as I did last night before re leveling my motors. I have my pixhawk mounted at 4 corners with Kyosho Z8006 gel. Is this the source of my problem? I've included…See More

"This log may even better demonstrate my issue. At around 4min if you log THRin and Dalt, you can see i'm dropping from 50% throttle down to about 25% throttle but the desired altitude is climbing for some reason. Whats going on here?"

Altitude hold climbs suddenly??? AC 3.2

Flying in position hold today and I was noticing big fluctuations in my altitude hold. Sometimes the quad would randomly jump up 50Ft. Looking at the logs alt and dalt line up pretty well. But throttle in and throttle out doesn't seem in sync. When I have throttle in stuck at 50% sometimes I will get huge and wild fluctuations in throttle out. Can anyone offer some advice for tuning my altitude hold?See More

"My PID's were whatever the default settings are. I'd have to go searching to find them.   The copter feels twitchy in any mode, stabilize, alt hold, or position hold. "
