  • 3692394315?profile=originalHere is my mission.  If you see something wrong please tell me.

  • Getting ready for my first Auto FLight with my 3DR quad.  One question before I go.  I have mission planner up and running and going to make a flight plan before I head out.  When I get out there will the home alt and coordinates lock, Since I can't set those unless I am out there with the computer.

  • @Andre - I used to put the Yaw D value to 6 before, that gave me a crisper rudder command. Try it, let me know if it has the desired effect.

  • Which PID value would I adjust to make my quad's rudder input more sensitive?

  • Ian, I have/had some trouble like this on my Jdrones Hexa... under the "Motors" command, my motors started firing out of order, instead of starting with motor 1 like it should on the hexa in + config... it started with #4 and continued around the loop. I couldn't get help on it yet, but logically, I figured if I move all my ESC jumpers 1 slot ccw, it should line my motors up properly...  it didn't, they moved one more slot further away on cw.... I am going to try and go the other direction now and see what happens tonight.

  • @Ian,  I had some trouble with Oct configuration. The correct connections are here

    Ian: See this link: http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/APM2_Motor_order It is already in the wiki. I am assuming you have an APM2.

  • Need some x 8 help... Do I use Ardu coptor V2.5.3 octa X firmware?  I have all my motors setup as per wiki X8 counter rotating diagram, but when I run the motors test, it does not conform to the video in the motors test. 

     Motors are absolutely wired correctly, I disconnected and listened for esc beeps to test, and they are correct, what am I doing wrong?  Instead of 1-6 4-7 3-8 2-5 like the video, mine is firing 1-3-8-4-2-6-7-5, I can't find any info on proper firmware setup for this config, any help would be appreciated...

  • Here is my  configuration with all my current pids.  This is the 3DR quad with 880 motors.  Feel free to let me know if I need to change anything.

    Pid settings. I am not sure i had those correct.

Drone flying to non visible point

Hi there,I encountered a problem, while flying in auto mode, with approching to point that was not set by trajectory and is not visible after downloading mission from flight controller by Mission Planner. Does anybody encountered similar problem. The situation is that in the middle flight I stopped the UAV and uploaded new mission and after changing to auto mode it starts to fly in some direction. It goes straight to some point, so I assume it's not mechanical problem. I attached the link to…

Will AHRS_ORIENTATION=8 for Arducopter 3.2.1 on APM 2.5 using a traditional Heli

I have been Reading Chris Olsen posts and watching his videos on Arducopter with traditional Helis using a Pixhawk.I have inherited an older Trex 450 heli with the old Align 3G FBL hardware.  The FBL controller appears to be bad.  So I have an old APM 2.5 without a compass or GPS on board.  I just want to replace the failed Align 3G FBL system with the APM.Now I have to mount the APM under the skids on the heli so the APM will be upside down.I have Two questions.1)  Is the AHRS_ORIENTATION=8…
