I have built a traditional 450 sized heli using a pixhawk autopilot, I am also using a spektrum DX8
Everything is setup and the heli flies. the only problem is is the tail wags a lot, i have previously built traditional 450 helis and encountered similar problems, ii was easy to fix this by adjusting the tail gyro gain.
I have searched all over and cannot for the life of me find where i can configure the gyro gain for the pixhawk.
ideally i would like to map it to a switch (knob) on my controller.
any advice would be greatly appreciated
Thank you for your quick reply, you have pointed me in the right direction. however from what i can gather there is not fixed settings and they will vary from heli to heli.
Its just a matter of trial error.
The other problem i have is my channel 6 is assigned to the pitch control so i have no way of assigning it to the rate_yaw_p. this is probably a result of me setting the pixhawk up as a heli and not as an acro as other posts suggest. so i have no way of assigning channel 6 to the rate_yaw_p to allow in flight tuning.
What also annoys me is that pixhawk have implemented the motor interlock, i have no idea why they have done this because normal gyro traditional helis dont require this. So no i am forced to have to flick a switch to activate the motor then use my throttle to as a pitch controller.
