I have the LidarLite on my quad with a Pixhawk controller running software version 3.2 and I see the ranging values in the setup screen. When the quad is sitting on the ground on the landing gear, the LidarLite is about 50cm above the ground. Does anyone know if there is a place to set the offset so that the Pixhawk realizes that when the range is about 50cm that it is on the ground? Or is this automatically calibrated?
By the way, the measurement from the LidarLite is amazingly accurate. The ranges given by the LidarLite vary about 5cm from the actual measured value with a ruler.
