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…Read more…
I have a quadcopter with:
2 Lipo 6s ()
4 ESC Monster 2000 ()
4 motors rotomax 80cc ()
But when i arm ans start motors, one motor stop spin when i pull thé throttle to max.
The total weigt of the quad copter is 60kg. The drone dors noté take off even i pull throttle, Elevetor toi max.
What Can tout advice me :
Change ESC to 14S?
Change the 2 Lipo 6s with a 14s battery?
Change propellers with bigger propellers ?
I've tried multiple mRo radios and an old 3DR radio, different USB ports, updating Mission Planner, uninstalling Mission Planner and reinstalling, installing QGroundcontrol, and uninstalling the radio in device manager and plugging it back in.
I've spent some time digging through forums trying to find a way to manually install drivers or to find out if Windows firewall is somehow blocking it with no luck.
Any advice would be appreciated.
I tried finding the driver on Windows Update but what they had didn't work. I then found my way to the Silicon Labs web page and downloaded the Windows VCP driver, installed it and voila!
I was finally able to "connect" to MP from my UAV over the Telemetry Radio!
Perhaps you can identify the FT239X Basic UART chip (on the PC board) and find out if the manufacturer provides a driver.
You also mention Windows Firewall was blocking something. Is it the download of the driver? Or the driver itself?
I made a drone with /MissionPlanner 1.3.61, navio2 + RP3B+, ardupilot
I get this message when I do a motor test.
"Command was denied by autopilot"
How do I handle this?
There is also a Status tab on the lower left side of the Data Screen. It's scrollable right to left, most parameters in alphabetic order, showing their current value.
I hope this helps.
Hi to all!
I am from Brazil and I am finishing my thesis to get my Doctor's Degree.
I have an energy model for quadcopters and I need some data to do a final check in the model.
I have spent the last two weeks tryng to find those files in the Internet.
I need the binary log or DF log of the Ardupilot such that I can convert it into a .mat file. Then I can use my Matlab program to read the .mat file and d the rest.
Please, if you have files like that you can make it available to me, please post here or send to my email : email@example.com
As additional info, I need to know:
- the model of the quadcopter;
-the weight of the quadcopter;
- the propellers used for the flight;
- where the flight took place.
I photo of the quadcopter would be an extra so that I can put that in my thesis.
I will be very grateful if you can help me.

Can anyone direct me to a stable 2,8 250 x quad platform?
I am looking for recommendations for distance sensor for quadcopters. I want to measure the altitude of the quad. I have used a Lidar Lite v3 and Maxbotix EZ4 sonar before. Looking for other options since Lidar Lite's performance is great but is quite costly.
Thanks in advance.
P.S.: Using Pixhawk as flight controller.
