"Hey Harry, glad to hear you're going the tricopter route, its certainly a fun one. I'd say for you.. the most vital piece of advice I've discovered is that the tricopters tail, Yaw stick that pivots the copter around on its horizontal…"

Richard Burkard replied to palo sestak's discussion How to reverse yaw control on Tri-copter
"Yes, I'd like to confirm my success with reversing of the servo. I had a perfectly fine working tricopter with a Corona DS-238HV servo.  I then switched to a Hitec H-82MG. (Old servo was getting sloppy).  No changes had been made to…"

Duncan J replied to palo sestak's discussion How to reverse yaw control on Tri-copter
"I am currently trying to tackle this problem. I believe my servo is reversed, when I throttle up it tips to the side a bit and yaws the copter round and around. I'll try all of your suggestions including the rudder reverse. hope something can…"

"I don't know if you're having the same problem as me. But here is my problem and solution. I built a tri. The servo direction was proper as controlled by my transmitter. But arducopter's yaw correction was backward which would cause…"

"Great news with continuous pan. Yes I2C port is there, but when I looked into software ASM of version 06 I didn't see compass supported yet. Is there some progress in supporting compass in ASM code? BTW where did You get those heavyduty…"

palo sestak commented on Jani Hirvinen's blog post HeavyDuty Antenna tracker
"Hi Jani, will it support also continuous pan? I have some sliprings around here and need one AT with continuous yaw so I hope I can modify this nice tracker and little bit software of ASM to get it work... If of course the magnetic sensor over I2C…"

palo sestak replied to Heino R. Pull's discussion Ardustation 2 - 2.0.20 Adds Servo Setup, Compatibility with 3DR OSD, Optional Baro Altitude For Pointing
"I just consider another option - adapt your code (Ardustation2_APM_ACM_2.0.20_Mavlink1.0) to ASM, from JDrones. I mean mainly the antenna tracker code, which is vital for me, others could stay from origin - LCD display driving routines, etc... As i…"

Marcus Wright replied to palo sestak's discussion How to reverse yaw control on Tri-copter

Dave Roche replied to palo sestak's discussion How to reverse yaw control on Tri-copter
"It sounds to me like a compass issue. It took me a few times to get the calibration right. Or motor direction or fail safes. The fail safes are only good once everything else is working. I would look at disabling them first, then check motor…"
