A few questions on setup

Hi,

I finally got to try my new airframe yesterday. Its the skywalker foam plane that is gaining some popularity especially with the FPV crowd. It seems really stable and a big pussy cat to fly.


Anyway I have a few, probably quite basic questions, on setup.

Firstly this is what I have.

Ardupilot with shield and air speed pitot connected.
ArduIMU with Ublox GPS
Aileron, connected with Y harness, as well as elevator and throttle connection.
2.6 code

1. Do I still need to use the jumper to set the home position?

2. Stabilize mode seems to work really well, but I don't have any throttle at all.

3. I tried a RTH but the plane zig zags across the sky. Do I need to adjust 7.1 Nav_roll_P to stop this?

4. Should I still be using a Z sensor, even though I have the IMU, and am not using the XY thermo sensors?

Cheers
Jamie

  • OK, I didn't think I needed the bind plug anymore, and according to the wiki I don't.

    I am assuming I also don't need the z sensor.

    But not having throttle in stabilize mode is still a puzzle. I have the throttle wire soldered on, as per instructions.

Excellent use of cardboard instead of 3D printing! https://twitter.com/Ingmar_Stapel/status/1324960595318333441
