How good is your Talon when dealing with altitude ?

I'm running some tests with my Talon to understand how well the target altitude at waypoints is reached and maintained as well as during Loiter mode.

This is how my Talon do in Loiter with some 3 m/s wind, as you can see the altitude since the beginning is not well hold.
Do not know if is my plane or TECS algorithm

When Loiter was engaged plane was at 27,790 meters but it went to 36,5 meters and then the altitude delta was  11,91 meters, really a lot .

So is it my Talon or the TECS ?

Hi Aaron, mine is flying with wing extentions......

Comment by Aaron Emmett on January 27, 2017 at 6:58am
Gustav - great info below and certainly points me in the right direction, in terms of hardware, any changes recommended if you were to use wing extensions? I'm looking for a commercial mapping solution so interested in yr thoughts

Although I've done zero flying myself lately, I've had to assist a friend with his Talon.

I attach my revised document, and original param file.

Hope it helps......

Sounds dangerous, I have not had that kind of issue.

Sure, not electrical problem?

Hi all

By changing to any mode the Pixhawk turn the engine off even in flight.

Can help solve this issue! I'm getting crazy trying to change parameters.
