My .log file shows pitchin and rollin changing during loiter when my hand isn't on the transmitter stick.  Hoping someone can explain why. Note that when I see yawin change in the .log file, it…Continue

I've an F450 quad running a 3DR APM2.5 on 2.90 firmware with PM and Ublox GPS. I'll be adding a Hero 3 White camera to this on a pitch servo. And I'll want to add OSD to it.What OSD would you get for…Continue

Tim Green commented on Monroe Lee King Jr.'s blog post The Coanda Effect and a cool UAV using it.
"Absolutely incorrect - airfoils change the velocity of the air, such that it's moving downward after the airfoil passes through the air.  And the wing reacts to that action, with a lifting force.  Action and reaction. …"

"Only way to have balsa exhibit lift when blowing across the top, is to shape it like an airfoil - or at minimum have the trailing edge curve downward - so that the air is ejected downward at the trailing edge. A balsa airfoil will exhibit lift when…"

"Hold a stiff piece of balsa the same way and try it.  It won't happen. The paper is flexible, and exhibits other phenomena."

"The lifting thrust comes from a Newtonian reaction to the air forced downward.  IOW at the bottom of the cylinder put a lip that turns the air from moving downward, to the air moving out horizontally ... and…"

"Can anyone provide some examples, or a list, of "more flexible frames" unsuitable to autotune?  For instance, I fly my APM in a 3DR Hexa-B frame, where the legs can move up and down a bit.  Is that frame ok for autotune?"
