Pls help, how to change behavior of servo to like this?

Hi guys. I was building a monster, it's a proof model of fiying car. The Control System is like CCPM, but not exactly same.

I want change servo throws to half:

This concept is the air one way in to three way out, 3 way out control flow rate by servo.

Because the structure of my monster wasn't same as traditional helicopter, so control system need do some change.

If it's too small can't see, you can go there look bigger pic:

I want know, How to change code to do servo throw limit half.  I tried set param of servo in "Mission Planner" but failed.

I am not good at coding, so can't found the place where the servo control. If you know this, please tell me, i want try change it. Thank you.

  • Interesting...  yeah, you'll need some custom code to do this.  What you want is all within AP_MotorsHeli.cpp, which is in the AP_Motors library.

    Specifically, these functions would be involved:

    void AP_MotorsHeli::init_swash()
    {

    // swash servo initialisation
    _servo_1->set_range(0,1000);
    _servo_2->set_range(0,1000);
    _servo_3->set_range(0,1000);
    _servo_4->set_angle(4500);

    // ensure _coll values are reasonable
    if( collective_min >= collective_max ) {
    collective_min = 1000;
    collective_max = 2000;
    }
    collective_mid = constrain(collective_mid, collective_min, collective_max);

    // calculate throttle mid point
    throttle_mid = ((float)(collective_mid-collective_min))/((float)(collective_max-collective_min))*1000.0;

    // determine roll, pitch and throttle scaling
    _roll_scaler = (float)roll_max/4500.0;
    _pitch_scaler = (float)pitch_max/4500.0;
    _collective_scalar = ((float)(collective_max-collective_min))/1000.0;
    _stab_throttle_scalar = ((float)(stab_col_max - stab_col_min))/100.0;

    if( swash_type == AP_MOTORS_HELI_SWASH_CCPM ) { //CCPM Swashplate, perform control mixing

    // roll factors
    _rollFactor[CH_1] = cos(radians(servo1_pos + 90 - phase_angle));
    _rollFactor[CH_2] = cos(radians(servo2_pos + 90 - phase_angle));
    _rollFactor[CH_3] = cos(radians(servo3_pos + 90 - phase_angle));

    // pitch factors
    _pitchFactor[CH_1] = cos(radians(servo1_pos - phase_angle));
    _pitchFactor[CH_2] = cos(radians(servo2_pos - phase_angle));
    _pitchFactor[CH_3] = cos(radians(servo3_pos - phase_angle));

    // collective factors
    _collectiveFactor[CH_1] = 1;
    _collectiveFactor[CH_2] = 1;
    _collectiveFactor[CH_3] = 1;

    }else{ //H1 Swashplate, keep servo outputs seperated

    // roll factors
    _rollFactor[CH_1] = 1;
    _rollFactor[CH_2] = 0;
    _rollFactor[CH_3] = 0;

    // pitch factors
    _pitchFactor[CH_1] = 0;
    _pitchFactor[CH_2] = 1;
    _pitchFactor[CH_3] = 0;

    // collective factors
    _collectiveFactor[CH_1] = 0;
    _collectiveFactor[CH_2] = 0;
    _collectiveFactor[CH_3] = 1;
    }

    // servo min/max values
    _servo_1->radio_min = 1000;
    _servo_1->radio_max = 2000;
    _servo_2->radio_min = 1000;
    _servo_2->radio_max = 2000;
    _servo_3->radio_min = 1000;
    _servo_3->radio_max = 2000;

    // mark swash as initialised
    _swash_initialised = true;
    }

    //
    // heli_move_swash - moves swash plate to attitude of parameters passed in
    // - expected ranges:
    // roll : -4500 ~ 4500

    {
    int16_t yaw_offset = 0;
    int16_t coll_out_scaled;

    if( servo_manual == 1 ) { // are we in manual servo mode? (i.e. swash set-up mode)?
    // check if we need to free up the swash

    reset_swash();
    }
    coll_out_scaled = coll_in * _collective_scalar + _rc_throttle->radio_min - 1000;
    }else{ // regular flight mode

    // check if we need to reinitialise the swash
    if( !_swash_initialised ) {
    init_swash();
    }

    // rescale roll_out and pitch-out into the min and max ranges to provide linear motion
    // across the input range instead of stopping when the input hits the constrain value
    // these calculations are based on an assumption of the user specified roll_max and pitch_max
    // coming into this equation at 4500 or less, and based on the original assumption of the
    // total _servo_x.servo_out range being -4500 to 4500.

    // rudder feed forward based on collective
    if( !ext_gyro_enabled ) {

    }
    }

    _servo_1->servo_out = (_rollFactor[CH_1] * roll_out + _pitchFactor[CH_1] * pitch_out)/10 + _collectiveFactor[CH_1] * coll_out_scaled + (_servo_1->radio_trim-1500);
    _servo_2->servo_out = (_rollFactor[CH_2] * roll_out + _pitchFactor[CH_2] * pitch_out)/10 + _collectiveFactor[CH_2] * coll_out_scaled + (_servo_2->radio_trim-1500);
    if( swash_type == AP_MOTORS_HELI_SWASH_H1 ) {
    _servo_1->servo_out += 500;
    _servo_2->servo_out += 500;
    }
    _servo_3->servo_out = (_rollFactor[CH_3] * roll_out + _pitchFactor[CH_3] * pitch_out)/10 + _collectiveFactor[CH_3] * coll_out_scaled + (_servo_3->radio_trim-1500);
