I've just released ArduPlane 2.71 for your flying pleasure.
As was described in the 2.71-beta thread, these are the major changes from 2.70:
Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this release!
One thing that isn't in this release but will be in the next release is the new L1 navigation controller from Brandon and Paul. They are doing fantastic work and testing is good so far, but I wanted to get the new features above out first before adding the new navigation code. I hope we will release a 2.72 release with the new L1 controller in the next couple of weeks.
Great crash and over 8km away. Beautiful country side. What radio were you using? Did you retrieve the EasyGlider? I can't claim to be a log analysis expert but it almost appears to be a mechanical failure. Halfway to WP5 there is a jump to WP6, (was that you?) which is in the opposite direction. The EasyGlider correctly banks sharply to the left but then fails to straighten up and continues to a left hand downward spiral even though the servo outputs appears to be moving the control surfaces in the correct direction, even the motor is on full trying to pull itself out of the dive.
My guess, aileron servo failure or broken wing.
I would be keen to hear somebody else's opinion.
What could case my plane to not react to speed change in FBWB?
I did set max and min value, but my plane is always flying around cruise speed, even if i have throttle stick at the highest or lowest position. No change.
Just have found another thing in connection with logging.
It seams that "Long" really is mix alt and "Sonar alt" is GPS alt etc.
where can I find the latest source code?
my clone of: https://code.google.com/p/ardupilot-mega/
points to a code with latest arduplane release of version 2.68?
We moved to github after 2.68. The main project is at http://github.com/diydrones/ardupilot
Could you give me a bit of guidance on what i need to change in my parameters to allow this my plane to fly more accurately. Here is a log file of a recent flight. If you would be so kind as to analyze the data and point me in the right direction I would be grateful.
I have also noticed something new, a kind of issue. I set the home position however the plane never shows it will go to it.
Thanks for your help
ArduPlane 2.71, works great with wing X5
This is how wind panel works using 2.71 (middle right)
But it is strange that i had to set ARSPD_RATIO to 8,4 after fixing the leak...
This is strange.
Look at how wind speed grows while i dive!
(Arrow shows direction upper number is current wind speed, lower is a kind of average)
Why is this?
8.4? That doesn't sound right at all.
I'd expect that to cause your airspeed to be overestimated by about a factor of 2x
I suspect your pitot still isn't right.
Thanks for your great work! Just letting you know that LAND command doesn't work in non airspeed altitude hold algorithm!
