Hello, I have loaded the latest (2.0.33) code and used both mission planner and CLI to do the setup, but even though I can take off and have a level flight, the copter is rotating constantly clockwise...I have about no control over the yaw.
I am using the DIY mag and also have a sonar attached.
P.S. My mag is attached as follows:
Components Up, Pins Forward
Thanks I will flip it over...I had it that way originally, but somewhere along the way I read that it should be Components Up..
Since I thought this might be the cause, I tried disabling it in the CLI (the mag), but it made no difference.
I will update in a few minutes after trying it enabled and flipped.
Just made the changes and tried to fly, same result..just yaws clockwise...I can stop it for a second with the stick control, but as soon as I release the stick, it starts the yaw again.
Note, it is flying level the entire time..just spinning.
I just found where I saw to put the mad Components Up as default..
It was (still is) in the wiki manual
Since I am using the cable method, this seemed to be correct?
#define MAG_ORIENTATION AP_COMPASS_COMPONENTS_UP_PINS_FORWARD // This is default solution for ArduCopter
//#define MAG_ORIENTATION AP_COMPASS_COMPONENTS_UP_PINS_BACK // Alternative orientation for ArduCopter
//#define MAG_ORIENTATION AP_COMPASS_COMPONENTS_DOWN_PINS_FORWARD // If you have soldered Magneto to IMU shield as shown in the Wiki
Can you check that you have the props spinning the correct directions?
Motors triple checked, no tilt, and ESCs are calibrated via CLI.
Note, copter does fly perfectly level, just spins in circles.
Old Pirates NG worked perfectly though?
What I am hoping to get out of this code is the "Simple" mode working well.
Yes, to all the above, the props all spin up at the exact same time, but I will go ahead and do a manual ESC calibration.
I do think it is something simple I must be doing wrong.
