temperature effect on gyro

When I started using my APM2-based quad in sub-zero temperature (actually around +10C still) I have to re-level it almost after each landing, even the very soft landing. Maybe it's not the temperature, but I have to check something else?

  • Hi,

    Sorry no answer to your question. I too am wondering if there have been any testing in cold temperatures with the APM 2 or 2.5 boards. I have mine mounted on a Skywalker and plan on flying day and night missions this winter. I usually dont fly if the temps are below 0 deg F. Anyone have any experience they could share?

    • Thanks for helping!
