Josh Potter replied to Todd Spurgeon's discussion Add_Motor_Raw for V tail Quad
"So my thought is to manually address the special yaw factor for the rear V motors that's statically defined as AP_MOTORS_MATRIX_MOTOR_CCW or AP_MOTORS_MATRIX_MOTOR_CW.Has anyone else tried that?"

Add_Motor_Raw for V tail Quad

I am a junior in Engineering with an intrest in UAVs and 3D printing. Decided to do a multicopter project and have been sitting on/refining a design for about a year now. The design is basically a mix of the V tail quad with the Skycrane with interchangeable functional payloads. I will have the time (weekends) and resources to build it this summer so I am deciding to bite the bullet. When working with this design it became apparent that my choice of boards came down to a few factors.-Does it…See More

About Me:
I am an Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering student at Virginia Tech and I wanted to work on my personal project to apply some concepts I have been learning in my classes and gain experience.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Designing my own and building it from scratch as well as coding it myself. Worked decently well with a 3D printer, throught I would try a UAV to use the Aerospace side of my studies
