I just installed my APM 2.5 running ArduCopter 2.9.1b on my TBS Discovery type frame (Reptile 500) and during setup I needed to set the frame setup. Since it is not a symmetrical 'X', should I choose the 'V' setup? I cannot seem to find any documentation on this configuration. I found this posting: http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/arducopter-tbs-discovery-style but he just changed the source code to compensate for the different arm angles.
I would think V as it looks most like the TBS but I don't know.
I have heard that the X setup works well on default.
What have you decided to do? Or what did you do?
I have chosen the "V" setup and it is working flawlessly. The picture resembles the frame best, I haven't tried the "X" setup though, but this one is working for me.
Is the motor spin directions and prop orientation same on V setup as with X setup? Or is it as in the H setup which is different from X?
X and V is same, H is different those first.
