The first time I fly, position holding is perfect in all axes.Subsequently (after I put it to another mode and return it to loiter [?]), the altitude does not hold. When the stick is centered, it…Continue

I'm excited to announce that two of EastBay RC's APM-powered videos will be featured at the upcoming Great Wall of Oakland screening. If you're in the Bay Area, stop by and check it out... it's a great and fun venue!

Part 2 of the EastBay RC Guide to PID Controllers.
Building on the intuitive model presented in part 1, we take a look at the mathematical model and write a PID control loop based on that model. Hang in there if you're unfamiliar with the math... it turns out to be pretty straight-forward code in the end!
Like part 1, this is a first take. Your…Continue
PID loops can be pretty confusing when you're first getting started with autopilots.
Here's my attempt at explaining them "intuitively", i.e. with no math.
I'm working on plugging in a physics engine into the demo. Two more videos in this series are planned:
- Understanding the math behind PID controllers.
- Tuning PIDs…Continue
