"That's strange for me too. I'm playing with my own tracker (mechanical parts have done) but even with last version (0.73 guess it is) the tracker is not reliable. It sometimes work, sometimes work with offset (surprisingly not constant but…"

"Yes I did. I wrote about it at page 42, guess. AT didn't follow copter correctly :-(. You can read it in page 42, it performs very strange in the auto mode. "

"Jakub, OK I got it now. But the tracker doesn't move whole circle when moving slider to its endpoints as you can see from video. Should not it move whole 360 degree circle when slider is moved from one endpoint to second?"

"Jakub or Randy I tested my AT on the bench, here are some results. When I connected AT to MissionPlanner via USB, AT was by default in AUTO mode. When switched to MANUAL mode AT pointed immediatelly UP and began to yaw around in full speed. I had to…"

"Yes Im using your build for my setup - tilt servo movement is adapted for CR servo type, as I checked your sorces in Tracker.cpp... And yes I tried the test button with slider position change. But it didnt perform well - for yaw servo when I moved…"

"Hi Jakub, thanks for any interest, I really appreciate it. here is my settings: As you can see, Servo Type is CR. Yaw servo is not working erratic, it works just strange. Sometimes it works nice - in narrow (45°) arc it follows MRC. Outside of…"

"I have question to all of you guys who are familiar with APM development. My AT is not working correctly, so far I just tested yaw with my CR servo setup for yaw. In fact it works very strange and therefore I would like to see some command values…"

"Hi Jakub at last I was at field today trying my AT. When I powered AT on it started to rotate around slowly more than twice. When I powered copter AT glitched after a while but didnt point to copter. Then I started to move with copter around AT in…"

palo sestak replied to Randy's discussion figuring out the Antenna Tracker
"Hi Jakub, thanks for update. Just one question - is that build for CR yaw servo and normal pitch servo? Because I have just such setup: yaw servo is continuous and pitch is classic +45-45 degree servo."

"Hello guys, today I put into service AT loaded with firmware build from Jakub Oller (thanks Jakub again). I set it somehow (indeed not optimal PID settings) but it works, ugly but works. Not tested it in the field yet, perhaps in the weekend. Now I…"

"Jakub, thanks for exhausting description, I really appreciate it and I hope it could be good guideline for everyone interested in antenna tracker setup. Anyway I have one problem with pitch servo - it is digital HS 5975HB. It has range only -45°…"

"At last I have completed mechanical part of my AT. Here is spec: -yaw servo is CR geared with spur belt -pitch is classic 90° servo -brain is APM 1.4 with MT GPS and external compass, loaded with AT 0.7.2 build from Jakub Oller Servo type set…"

"OK, thanks Jakub, this job is done :-). Now I'm going to try mechanical parts - CR servo for yaw and normal servo for tilting of antenna, wish me luck."
