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

Tail Servo

Started this discussion. Last reply by Sean Whitney Jan 22, 2015. 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

"Rish,  Are you sure about your head speed.  1400 with stock 520 or 550 blades is very low.  You should be able to get close to 10 minutes with a 5 amp pack and stock blades at 1800 ish headspeed.  Regards, David R. Boulanger"

"Well it will save you money in the long run. Sounds like you're throwing away batteries which is never cheap! Spend some money on a good charger and your batteries will love you. Never over discharge your batteries past 80-90% "

"Get a better charger! I would recommend using an Icharger, 308DUO or 410DUO would do the job."

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"

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
