At default settings I have a ground speed of about 42km/h (without airspeed sensor), and I think the optimal speed should be lower. In the mission planner I have value "Cruise speed", default 12m/s. I updated it to 9.
Hi I have been setting up 2 quad planes, pretty standard setups...flying wing with 4 vtol motors and a rear mounted pusher motor. Both builds wich are on different firmware versions have reversed pitch in quad mode but correct pitch and pitch stabili
Hello, I'm new to ArduPilot, but not to computing or open source. I'm working with a group building a tailsitter with a single pair of props for both hover and horizontal cruise. (For type of VTOL, think Ryan X-13 or Martin V-BAT.)
I'm new to Arduplane, but I've got high-mileage left-handed reflexes, and need mode 3 to fly. But neither of the ground stations I've tried allow for that control layout. How can I configure Mission planner or Qgroundcontrol in stick mode 3?
hi everyone, I am building a quadcopter with pixhawk that will be able to deliver stuffs(like pizza), I am done with the entire frame with wood but I am haven a little challenges in the creation of the payload. Can anyone help. Thanks
I just installed 3.8 on a pixhawk without AS sensor and was surprised to find that Airspeed (synthetic since I have no sensor) was not being reported over Mavlink to my OSD....I am pretty sure that on a 3.4 APM system I had, it was being reported and
Background: We've got a large scale powered glider that has been flying pretty well, except for one thing that is baffling. We've done Autotune, setup and checked each parameter carefully in the list and wondering if we potentially missed somethin
From reading various threads about people being confused about getting no throttle in AUTO while on the ground I understand that ArduPlane will not give you any throttle in the Auto modes while it thinks it's not in flight.
I have been flying my APM miniTalon succesfully for a long time on AP3.0.1....recently I had to replace the APM and reflash....unfortunately, MP will only load 3.4 firmware....the problem is that with this firmware MAG_ENABLE is not longer maintained
Today I tested a recently built fixed wing frame, the Skywalker 1900 build for a course in Argentina to teach people about UAVs and make them fly legal. I am using an APM 2.5 with GPS and no airspeed sensor (yet).
I'm trying to setup the loss of RC comms with my RMILEC long range system (LRS). Basically, there are 2 modes you can choose from (custom servos and channel positions or hold last servos positions). The system works by sending regular
