Thanks in advance Newbie to APM helicopter and need some advice. I have used APM 2.6 and 2.8 board for a few years now on quads and tricopters. I have watched videos of APM helicopters flying waypoint missions with no input from the transmitter a they
Thanks in advanceTrex 450, Flybarless head, APM 2.6, Arducopter 3.2.1, Ublox 7 GPS with compass, flying fairly well with mostly stock settings.Question in mission planner flight modes can I use Stable with Simple mode with a helicopters?Does this wor
I'm in the process of tuning my 4 bladed, 10 lb helicopter. I have the rate_xxx_p gains high enough that the Heli responds nicely in stabilize mode but when trying to fly in acro mode, the aircraft response is very lagged to my inputs. Even with roto
I want to offer a way to remove the instability of the helicopter to RATE_RLL_P. I believe that this is caused by the lead-lag of the blades coupling with the body dynamics which is a well known rotor instability for manned helicopters. Could someone
I had a Dominator 450L sitting around and I decided to install my old APM 2.6 so that I can continue to learn traditional helicopters with out jeopardizing my 700 Trex with a PixHawk. So I have had success setting up traditional helicopters. This is
I have designed and built a unique helicopter that uses two forward facing tail rotors to provide anti-torque and directional control as well as forward thrust. I have a servo to controlling directional axis and another servo controlling forward thru
It would be great for acro modes to have vehicle yaw reference and no pitch limit so 3D moves could be executed the same as standard heli controls. Having a copter that can go from auto to manual 3D would be too cool.
I was hoping someone in the traditional heli forum could share their current parameters file (flying 3.2.7) if they have a Trex 500 in flybarless configuration and are happy with the transition and hover in stablize mode.
I have not posted here before and have been building a Trex 500 Flybarless (new 500L rotor head) as a testbed for the tradtional branch of APM. After loading the correct firmware (V3.2.1) in the APM2 Planner, I went to calibrate the radi
