Assistance with Loiter

Hi all,

 

I have not posted for a while as I have had alot of success with my Quad of late.  I request assistance with regards to my Loiter.  I currently have my quad sitting in a loiter box of around 7-10m in a very light breeze, but it stays within this box and I have no oscillations that I can tell over a 10 minute only Loiter flight.

 

Quad specs:

 

880 Motors

6000mah 4s batt

10x3.7 APC props

Weight including battery 1.5/1.6kg

 

Loiter Rate PID's

 

P 2017 (Increasing this or decreasing this worsens the tightness of the hold pattern)

I 80 (Not sure if I should increase or decrease this)

D 400 (Again, not sure if I should increase or decrease this)

 

Loiter P

P 200 (I figured according to the manual I should not have to change this)

 

If any further information is required, please let me know and I will add them to the post.

 

Any responses would be appriciated.

 

Thanks in Advance,

Solo.

  • I am probably one of many following this thread with interest ?? as I am currently trying to tune a Hexa. 

    It is definitely more a black art than a science, as slight changes can have unexpected results.

    Today I managed some good flights in a mild breeze (5 to 7 kts) with a loiter of 10m radius, increasing the IMAX while all else remained unchanged.

    It is till not as stable as you see about on teh net but that will obviously be an ongoing thing.

    So come on everyone, us newbies need the input and sharing, even if yours is not working as expected that may be useful to some of us before we go down that path. 

  • Please please, not all at once :)
