I did a few test flights with my phone using follow Me Mode. One problem I can't seem to get the copter to go faster than 5 meters per second in that mode. I would have thought that Loiter and or…Continue

Has anyone used guided mode? I was trying it out today and all is good until it gets to the target from there it wants to spin around in a circle like it's lost. Maybe I missed something but is there…Continue

Anyone running a gimbal on their helicopter?Curious if someone found the best route for taking vibration out of the camera while in flight and in a hover? Care to share?  Continue

Tail Servo

Started this discussion. Last reply by Sean Whitney Jan 22. 9 Replies

Curious if the Pixhawk can only support servos at 1520μs? When I look at most tail servos they are usually running at 760μs. Will the Pixhawk support 760μs? If not what Tail servo would you suggest?…Continue

Follow Me Mode

I did a few test flights with my phone using follow Me Mode. One problem I can't seem to get the copter to go faster than 5 meters per second in that mode. I would have thought that Loiter and or WPNAV speed would directly effect how fast follow me mode will fly. Does anyone know how to change the speed of follow me mode? Thank you,Sean See More

"Fred,  The Heli is a 550 that has been stretched to 600.  I am using a Feiyu Tech gimbal with 4 Tarot damper balls.  The 6 damper balls that came with the gimbal were to firm for Heli vibrations. Regards, David R. Boulanger"

"Sean, WPNAV_ACCEL is set to 100 (1m/s/s) but you could try reducing that to 50 (0.5m/s/s).  it'll accelerate more slowly as well though and there could be other unintended consequences like it'll make the "leash" that the…"

Guided Mode

Has anyone used guided mode? I was trying it out today and all is good until it gets to the target from there it wants to spin around in a circle like it's lost. Maybe I missed something but is there a setting to change the behavior of the AC when it reaches the target? See More

Dear Sean Whitney,

I saw a video from your Trex 550 in Loiter Mode. The heli is staying very rigid in the air.

I'm using a TREX 700E and want to fly this heli with apm 2.5 version 2.91 autonomously.

Currently I want to adjust the PID parameter. The stabilize and the Altitude Hold Mode is working perfect, but I have some problems with the Loiter values.

So would it be possible to send me your PID values of the loiter mode? I think they have to be very similar.

Thanks.

Nice Greets from Austria

Manuel
