    I have both set to 500 already. So I don't know what else to try. 

  • In Stabilize mode you are directly controlling throttle output where as in throttle-assisted modes, you are making a request to ascend/descend at a given rate.  The parameter you are interested in is PILOT_VELZ_MAX.  Default for Iris is 250.  Just double that and set it to 500 and it will give it a mush more responsive feel.  PILOT_ACCEL_Z controls the acceleration and is also set at 250, but I feel like 250 is adequate.  See parameter descriptions here:

  • In stab mode if I go full throttle it takes off straight up very fast as you would expect. In alt hold or pos hold however it goes up but much much slower. Anybody know what I need to turn up to increase throttle authority? Thx

  • @DG Yes I have a Taranis! Like the way it hooks on the lip of the antenna base great design.  Perfect man thanks!!!!

  • I should have asked if you have a Taranis :)

    That was a link to the adapter. You still need the main bracket mount.

  • @ Richard Kennedy

    I bought a monitor bracket for my Taranis from Evolution3D. It is high quality. They also make mounts for tablets and phones here

  • @ Fernando Yes your gonna want to get a 3s.

  • Anyboy know of a good product to hold a cell phone or small tablet to a TX handle?

  • Hi Everyone, i´m new in building Quadcopters, just last week i ordered all that i need to build my first one and today found out that i ordered the wrong battery (i think).


    Lipo 2 cell 7.4v 2650mAh nanotech Turnigy, instead of a 3 cell.


    Can i power (fly) my F450 Apm 2.6 with this battery or definitely i need to buy the 3 cell battery.


    Thanks in advance to the community

  • Hi all from Portland Oregon, I have a quad I have put together with the HKPilot micro APM and was having good success at tuning in the, stable flight, altHold, loiter etc............... then did an update or something and now it doesnt see my GPS and the GPS gets very warm.

    I am wondering if someone can point me to a group/forum for this FC from HK.

    One of my issues is that I am an electronics technician of 30 years and have been playing in the nerd/geek world forever (basic stamp, pic...) and might be having the issue of not seeing the forest through the trees.

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…

Maximum number of Lidar for Object Avoidance

Hi all,I'm setting up my PX4-based quad with ST VL53L0X Lidar sensors (I currently have three) and I noticed that line #24 of the current Rangefinder library (here: https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot/blob/master/libraries/AP_RangeFinder/RangeFinder.h#L24) has the maximum number of sensors set to 10 (ten). Am I understanding this correctly? And has anyone ever tried to setup this many rangefinders (or anything close) with any measure of success?Any input/advice will be greatly appreciated.

Valid values for Mavlink SCALED_PRESSURE

I have a raspberry pi reading mavlink messages from a pixhawk. When I read SCALED_PRESSURE I get hPa values around 490  - less than half of what I would expect - and a temperature around 4834 in cdegC - seems warm to me. This is consistent with what is shown in Mission Planner (see below). Is this normal or is my barometer on the fritz? I am trying to calculate my own altitude like AP_Baro::get_altitude_difference but in a companion computer.
