PID loops can be pretty confusing when you're first getting started with autopilots.
Here's my attempt at explaining them "intuitively", i.e. with no math.
I'm working on plugging in a physics engine into the demo. Two more videos in this series are planned:
- Understanding the math behind PID controllers.
- Tuning PIDs (using the physics engine as a testbed)
Anyways, this is my first go at this. I'll probably make a second attempt in the future, so any feedback is appreciated!
(update) thanks for all the feedback! I'm getting ready to start part 2 which will decipher the math and show the basic simplicity of PID loop programming.
