Sometimes I feel like "one step forward, two steps back".
My Easystar with Ardupilot is ready for my next test flight but.. calibrating those XY thermo's - I can never get this to work in manual mode. Perhaps it's me but I can only get good Roll/Pitch values when I start up the Ardupilot in Stabilize mode. However, this is chewing up my elevator servo as it does an extreme angle during the startup phase.
I can probably avoid this by unplugging the servos until the XY calibration is complete. Urgh.
Can anyone offer advice? Is this normal? Should I always initialize Ardupilot in Stabilize mode?
