i have found this forum most informative helping me setup my copter however i have reachedmy wits end an wanted to reach out for some help.
I have a home made tricopter which i have recently upgraded from a KK2 to a Hobbyking HKpilot board and originally a Neo6 gps.
it all flys ok in stabilize and acro mode and i have gone through all the tutorials and tuned pids etc however when it comes to any features relating to GPS ie RTL and loiter it just wont play ball.
it gets a lock in mission planner i have now upgraded the GPS, i even got an ftdi cable and updated the config of the NOE6 as i assumed that was at fault and i have now even bought the official 3DR one with external compass (and cut the track) however still when i switch to RTL it just buggers off across the field rather than comming back to where i powered it up from.
i have spent so much time fighting the problem rather than enjoying the APM and it makes me want to put the KK2 back on there :-(
can someone please share their expertise, is there any other setup i have missed or tests i can do
i really apreciate your help
