I need some help in setting up yaw PID's. My TBS Discovery with APM2.6 has a poor yaw performance. It seems not very locked and what is most annoying it is slowly oscillating which is most visible in onboard video footage.
To get to the root of the problem I did some log analysis and found that actual_yaw is indeed tracking nav_yaw but leaves some +-3 degrees slow oscillations. Please have a look at this log screen and my current PID's. Any ideas where to start or how to systematically set up the yaw PID's?
Here's an edit showing 5 different turns where my QAV400 "spins out" like a car going around a turn too fast. I'm posting this in case anyone else is experiencing the same thing.
After finding this thread, I started experimenting with my yaw PIDs. Here are the settings that I'm currently using:
Hi Leonard, sorry if my post wasn't clear. The settings in the screenshot I just posted GREATLY improved my yaw control compared to the default settings. Did you get the log file I posted earlier? That log file matches the unedited video I posted and that flight was using the default yaw settings.
Here is a video I made with the new yaw settings (my screenshot above):
Those YAW-PIDs are really good! I've applied those on my TBS Disco and they work flawless.
Thanks for sharing.
How did you guys exceed the limits? I would like to try an higher P than 0.250 but there is no chance to do it....
Massimo Tabai have you figured it out why we can't put a value in past 0.250?
I don't know why in the main page you can't exceed 0.250 but I found you can use the value you want without limits in the "Full Parameter List".
