I made around 30 flights with a delta wing uav with a weight about 25kg. APM 2.5 fm 2.68
So the plane was tuned at about 30m/s in horizontal cruise flight.
So when i start descent from waypoint one to waypoint to
- distance between waypoint one around 1500m and a change of alt about 300m
the airspeed overshoots and the plane starts oscillating. Even when i turn the airspeed pitch PID to zero.
What i figured out is that the plane gets to fast during descent even when the engine is almost off.(Idle)
then the PID parameter don't fit for that speed.
also tried do change speed before descent to a higher speed during descent.
but no chance....
Why this question: Our uav is measuring weather datas on a pre programmed path.
for me the flight path has a very high priority, speed is actually not really important.
Does somebody has an idea to get away from this oscillation?
Maybe there is now airspeed to gain adjustment for the PIDs?
(in higher airspeeds less gain, slower airspeeds more gain)
