As I wrote in title, just doing some setting up on ground.
Somehow when I had turned on pixhawk it initiated with RTL mode on, I hadn't notice tbh because I'd been having issues arming the pixhawk.
After recalibrating and turning off 2nd compass, then taking outside to get GPS lock, I was surprised when this time it worked and did throttle arm.
However the rudder and elevator badly oscillated, I am assuming this has something to do with it being in rtl mode and becoming confused?
I am concerned because it is primarily the RTL function that I want, and if it oscillated like that in the air it would surely crash.
Did this issue likely only happen as a result of being on ground, how can I test with reduced risk?
One concern I have is that if rtl isn't setup correctly and a failsafe is initiated the model might fly away!?
I guess presumably I should turn off failsafes before testing rtl with a switch? Or what is the recommended way?
Oh I am using pixhawk , frsky x9d , bix3
PIDs and other control values I got from advice on youTube from someone using a Bix3, I was hoping they be a good starting point at least.
