I've just released ArduPlane 2.62
The main reason for this release so soon after 2.61 is to fix elevon mixing. That was broken completely in 2.61. My apologies to everyone with an elevon plane!
Other changes in this release:
As you scroll through the list of hash numbers, the firmware version numbers change under each of the icons. No guesswork needed. Very nice feature. Thanks.
Hi Rana--Just confirming that I have the same issue with the HIL version in 2.62. I mistakenly reported that in the 2.61 thread.
Quick question on trim. I had the airplane trimmed in manual mode. I calibrated the radio. I then fly and FBW-A mode and it wants to yaw slightly to the left and needs right trim to eliminate the yaw. I added the trim to fly straight and level with no yaw but if I go back to manual I have a strong yaw to the right that I have to eliminate the additional trim.
This appears to be my last kink, I'd greatly appreciate the help!
Thanks Cris. I will do some tests with the ESCs other versions to see if changes.
I have had to disable the APM 2.0 from using my airspeed sensor for flight calculations. Before being disabled I was not able to get RTL to work correctly, it would return but was loosing altitude slowly until I had to take over. Once I disabled the airspeed sensor from being used in flight calculations, RTL worked perfect, it would return to home and hold the altitude and circle. My question is: Now that I have the Airspeed disabled for flight calculation will FBW B still work as it requires an airspeed sensor?
Thought I would ask before I tried it.
Not observing any HIL Mode connectivity issue with Mission Planner in Arduplane 2.62 Revision: 8c012b639478, 100% success rate.
Both elevons are exactly the same in manual and stabalize mode when holding level. You may want to redo your radio calibration?
Today I tested the do_jump command and am glad to say it is working again! Thanks Andrew!
I'm pushing 2.63 with the no-GPS fix now
