Phil Horner commented on Klaus Heinrich's group PIXHAWK
"Hi Javier I've calibrated the battery monitor as per your link and it is reading correctly, however it is the constant low battery warning that is the issue. It is sounding when it shouldn't."

"Hi all I'm having a problem with the low battery warning function on my Pixhawk. On the HUD screen in Mission Planner, at the bottom where it shows the battery voltage and amps, it is always in red and issuing warnings that the battery is low…"

Phil Horner commented on Klaus Heinrich's group PIXHAWK
"The Pixhawk in the Sky Hunter surely is a weird beast. Initially I couldn't complete an ACCEL calibration as it would freeze up after each step of laying it on its side, front, back etc. At the time I was getting constant pre arm warnings of…"

"I'm having the same problem, and it's driving me insane. If I move the body of the plane, as an addition I also get ERROR VELOCITY VARIANCE and ERROR POSS HORIZON VARIANCE. Using Arduplane V 3.5.0 (379ca5ac) Someone please help. This is…"

"Hi Guys Although I've got two Multi Rotors using Pixhawks, I'm still very much a novice, and I'm pleading for help with my problem. I've fitted a Pixhawk to my first plane (Sky Hunter) RX EZHUF 8 ch lite TX Taranis Mission…"

"Yes, just odd that I can't trim the throttle below 1000 uf. I just feel uneasy doing it this way."
Dec 9, 2015
Richard Kennedy replied to Phil Horner's discussion Setting throttle failsafe with EZUHF and Taranis Please help. in the group PIXHAWK
"Well as long as you do the calibration for all your channels in MP with the throttle trim up a bit then I guess that should work just fine. You shouldn't need to trim it lower right? As long as bringing the throttle stick all the way down shuts…"

Hein du Plessis replied to Phil Horner's discussion Setting throttle failsafe with EZUHF and Taranis Please help. in the group PIXHAWK
"Thanks for replying. No such option on EzUHF though. I've set my throttle trigger to 1002 uf, set failsafe on trasmitter and used throttle trim to take the throttle higher, to 1020. This works but it will mean the plane will failsafe if I ever…"

Richard Kennedy replied to Phil Horner's discussion Setting throttle failsafe with EZUHF and Taranis Please help. in the group PIXHAWK
"Look in the documentation for your RX and look for a way for it to 'don't send pulse' or 'send no pulse' then you turn throttle FS on in MP to a number 10 or so below what your lowest throttle setting is when your TX is on.…"

"I'm tearing my hair out here. I also have a Taranis with OpenTX 2.1 and EZUHF. I can't get the pwm values below 999! I've tried extended trim, offset, everything I can think of. How can I tell the receiver to send out a lower PWM on…"
