I'm running the latest APM code in a Zephyr II and it flies well in Stabilized and all Auto modes, tracking waypoints and altitudes great. In FBW-A however I can't get more than about 10° bank and very shallow climbs and descents. Had anyone else experienced this or have a solution?Thanks!

  • Seth, did you ever find a resolution to the Issue of FBW not being responsive enough? I am still having the same issue on my X8.
  • I just maidened my X8 yesterday and when in FBW-B, I lost all control over the servos. I could steer the plane at all. Stability worked, but seemed to need more up trim than on Manual. I didn't try Auto since FBW didn't work. Where do i start? I'm looking forward to this discussion.

    sounds like your radio limits are not configured correctly, or you configured with high rates in the transmitter and now have it set to low rates.

    Cheers, Tridge
