"Hey, there are failsafe values. Depending on what you receiver emits when the transmitter is turned off you can program different actions. In example, land, RTL or whatever you like. Further reading on this can be found in the documentation…"

Hello Guys,I was hoping that someone of you guys could tell me what went wrong when my Tricopter crashed today.The tricopter was hovering out in my garden when suddenly one of the motors switched to full power and flipped the quadrocopter upside down. I flew the tricopter in stabilized mode. The damage is not my concern, (only one broken prop), however I would like to understand why it flipped.I couldn find anything in the logs (which are attached below). The tricopter flipped, therefore it lay…See More

Programming the PX4 with Eclipse - Autocomplete function

Hello guys,I want to implement some custom code on the Pixhawk Px4 autopilot. Therefore I did set up the Px4 toolchain as described in the very helpful tutorial sites. The good news is that I am sucessfully compiling using the make files and via eclipse. However I was wondering if there is a way to set up Eclipse such that the Autocomplete function works for the ArduPilot project in Eclipse? Therefore does anybody know how to setup eclipse to do autocomplete correctly on the ArduPilot (.pde…See More
