So I've been unhappy with how aggressive the throttle is on 2.8.1, plus my quad sinks, and climbs, and sinks and climbs, over and over. And I feel like I'm often giving it waaaay to much throttle just to hold altitude.
So in the new Arducopter Pids screen I cranked up both Altitude Error P and Thrust Rate P, from 300 to 330.
I was greeted today by really nice throttle response when the quad leapt into the air with wild abandon.
I switched to ALT-Hold from stabilize mode.
As I floundered about fighting the stupid wind gusts (shouldn't have flown really, to gusty), suddenly the quad stopped obeying me and gyrated violently, I switched back to stabilized, hit disarm and dropped the quad so it wouldn't flop itself into the lake. It was only a meter or two in the air.
So I have a couple questions.
Is Throttle rate P the correct thing I need to adjust so I get better throttle response?
Is Altitude Error P what caused my Death Wobble?
