Anyone else flying a TBS Caipirinha with APM setup? I'd be interested to see how you set it up, what PIDs you are running and what layout you used.
I've got one that I'm still tuning (stabilisation is rubbish at the moment...) with
Not the best pic... but shows layout of various components
that's pretty much identical to how I had it set up... which firmware version were you using? and were you using the new elevon mixing? or in the transmitter...
I have the logs still to have a look at... and the APM is destined to head into a Zephyr II shortly.
Dumb question...your APM's are all rotated 90'. I assume that's a simple config option in MP when you set the airframe?
Just set this up in MP under compass.
In 'Mandatory Hardware' click compass and you will se the 'Orientation' tab and you will work it out.
Calibrate the compass and then check heading is right on the Flight Data tab.
I havent connected it to MP since I set it up, but I am sure I used MP for mixng and had to reverse one servo (servo 2 I think).
I can connect and look it up if you need the info or have you given up?
Does this not interfere with the gyro's though, or are they all "rotated" as well?
I am looking into getting this Flying wing - did you ever get it flying properly? If so - i'm curious how it handles the APM and various supporting components (flight times, etc)
Just about to do the same thing with a Pixhawk and the standard TBS caipirinha motor and ESC.
Did you have to upgrade the motor with the extra weight? Did it fly OK? I was thinking of using a 2200mah 3s. Is that going to push the motor too hard?
Thanks. Bu you didn't upgrade the motor or prop or esc?
Copy that. Thannx.
Hi..coul'd you Please post your's parameter settings?
