Was flying hovering some quick forward pushes out 20-30 feet and fast stops and the same coming back just kind of getting used to it, 4-5 min, then stopped in hover maybe 3ft up one arm dipped down out of know were, only broke one blade. Not sure why maybe speed control cut out . Gps was locked in have a dome over electronics.
Any Ideas? Would love to take to my field but not sure now .
Not enough info here to answer. You said you were flying APM, but I guess you meant ArduCopter. If so, which version.
In general, we can only analyze flight problems if you upload a log.
Jakubs fiberglass frame,Arducopter control (APM,IMU,GPS,Magnetometer) no sonar yet,with latest updates 2.0.33, 4 brand new Turnigy 2217/16 1050kv,4 turnigy plush 30a esc's. I lowered the stabilize roll & pitch P to .3 on both.
Other then sinking speed control with TX ( did that though APM all 4 together) are there any other program setting that should be made for speed control? Saw in basic performance troubleshooting AC2 tweaks, my copter flies well but then dips a motor...... motors feels smooth, as far as bearings, shaft is true. could I have bin hovering to close to the ground. When you say upload a log is this information in the control board memory now since last flight or do i need a data logger? If it is still in memory were would I retrieve info?
