I spent a lot of time to connect quadcopter to simulator.
I tried the AC 3.0.1Beta HIL firmware, after flashing I've done setup - reset
but the calibration radio does not start
then i go to advanced parameters and load my previous calibrarion data using compare paramerers button
after that i see green bars of radio.
next problem ac 3 cant be armed in hil mode with activated pre-arm check parameter. I deactivated this option
i try xplane 9 & 10 simulators with qro-x model
when throttle stick in down position simulator show 5% of throttle
if throttle stick up - simulator show 20% of throttle and do not move
i change throttle channel gain, sim show throttle > 60% and model starts to fly
in low throttle stick position sim show 50% of throttle and continue going up
then i check roll-pitch control - its work fine
but main, not solved problem in auto mode arducopter always have rotation at heading, it flies away in a spiral - never does not reach the waypoint
maybe someone had a successful experience with a simulator, tell me what the simulator is working properly and what settings should be applied
