Hello everyone, I have a weird problem with the FBW mode: The fly-by-wire mode works fine for level flight (so does stabilizing), but when i move the stick to one side, the plane starts turning, and…Continue

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

",Hey, nice work, however I would be interested: Which control strategies did you use in the three modes?"

Philippe Petit replied to Søren Kuula's discussion Level flight controller - any interest?
"Implementation for this type of controller should be relatively simple... I think it is best done by copying out the navigation roll command to a new variable (for example to nav_yaw_cd), then set the nav_roll_cd to 0. All this is in the function…"

Philippe Petit replied to Kevin Young's discussion ArduPlane 2.72 analogRead/analogWrite compiling issue
"Hey, I think (and anybody is more then welcome to correct me if I am wrong) that this problem stems from the fact that the software now also supports Px4 Autopilot. Therefore the functions analogWrite and analogRead are not supported anymore. I…"

Philippe Petit commented on Manfred Dickgiesser's blog post The mysterious AltHold problem .... solved
"Damn you are absolutely right, sorry for that...However why should the pressure rise? Is the irradiation causing the air to get denser?"

Philippe Petit commented on Manfred Dickgiesser's blog post The mysterious AltHold problem .... solved
"When the sun shines at the barometer, the detected pressure rises and therefore the helicopter thinks it is too high. Therefore it commands a loss in altitude to regain the "correct" altitude (which is of course 5m lower due to sunshine).…"

"So does that antiicing stuff stick on the propeller even though the propeller spins at a rather high speed.Actually I am a bit baffled that the water sticks in the first place. Should the centrifugal force carry it away before it could freeze?"

Philippe Petit commented on tristan price's blog post Freezing fog grounds my hexa in less than a minute
"Hi, I think a heated cabine might not be the solution. As the props are relatively thin, they get cold quite quickly, therefore even though you heat them up, they will cool down in the first few seconds of your flight. Perhaps you can try to apply…"
