I am configuring apm2 on my Zephyr2. I have the throws down to about +-35% on my futaba9c. In mission planner I configure, and then set the endpoints for each channel. I save and boot up the plane in manual mode... reduced throws work perfect! I switch to stabilize mode and the apm2 supplies FULL servo range nearly bending my pushrods.
How do I get stabilize, RTL, automission, (every mode) throw values to match the limits of manual mode? I want all the flight behaviors to match.
Why not just set up your servos normally? Is there some advantage to your setup?
If I understand you right you want the radio calibration to understand that your full range (as sent to the APM) is actually only 70% of what the total range should be?
If I understand right then it isn't really an issue with the software. What you should do is set your radio to normal mode (100% range), calibrate it in APM, then switch your range back to +-35%.
I tried and it worked.........I'm not sure about my software version, I bought it preloaded from Udrones a couple of weeks ago.
I just verified your report and find the same behavior. I have not looked at elevon mixing since last fall and don't remember this behavior in earlier revisions.
I have submitted it as an issue to the issue tracker to get it on the dev team's to do list.
