I have a few questions:
- The copter flies pretty good and I'm completely comfortable with the sticks. They are still a little touchy, but manageable. When I flip into Loiter mode, the copter starts to bounce up and down. It progressively gets worse and eventually goes up 4ft and back down 4ft before I switch back to manual to take over once my nerves have been wrecked. Ha! Thoughts?
- I create a simple waypoint course and make sure that I get a good GPS signal after powering up. When I take off, I get it to hover just a few seconds, and then I flip the switch to auto to run the waypoint course. I notice instantly that the copters heading is leading with the front right arm. (Ironically, I have the GPS mounted on that arm...I don't think that matters, but maybe it does....) Regardless, the same issue happens with altitude when coming back or even navigating waypoints, it gets really bouncy...Up and down, up and down... I've tested sonar and it seems to be working in the CLI.
- As you can imagine, using Altitude Hold mode, clearly doesn't work for me.. ha!
Any help would be appreciated. I'll keep scouring the forums as well. Thanks!
I'm running a quadrocopter DJI Flame Wheel 450 with stock motors, props, ESCs, a 4s 3250 battery pack, APM2.5 running ArduCopter 2.9.1b w/Ublox GPS (no compass on GPS), and a sonar. My current PIDs are as follows:
