I uploaded the latest beta firmware 3.8 rc6, then figured out that the Frame Type number is off by 1.
Frame Type:0 = Quad1 = Hex2 = Octa3 = Octaquad4 = Y6
The actual correct type identifier for Octaquad is #4. Once I selected this, everything…"
I have been working on a quadplane project for the past few months with mixed results. This airframe is a 3 meter wing span custom design flying wing weighing between 12-15kg. I started off with a quad setup for the VTOL capabilities. I had some…
"Thanks for the tip. The problem however, was with the internal compass only. Since that picture was taken I have rerouted some wires and cleaned things up a bit though. With a new Pixhawk unit, there are no compass issues and I have been flying…"
"That is interesting to hear about the firmware causing and fixing the issue. As I said before, I replaced the pixhawk unit itself and the compass problem went away. I have since sent the suspect Pixhawk back to be replaced. Maybe if I encounter…"
"Although disabling the internal compass worked, I was determined to figure this out. I tried moving the Pixhawk up and away from the PDB as far as I could as well as trying a 4s battery and nothing seemed to make a difference. So, I took a Pixhawk…"
"Just came back from the field testing this setup with the internal compass disabled. All was good!
After further review I found something interesting... I was reading the compass mot test graph wrong, the interference levels were actually good…"
"Setting compass_use2 to 0 did not change the outcome of the compass_mot test but if the test is only measuring the internal compass that makes sense. I will try to fly it today with the internal compass disabled and see what happens.
I have been flying a 900mm size Y6 with a 4s power system for some time. Initially I had mounted the Pixhawk on a plate set on 30mm standoffs from the top plate of the frame while the PDB is in between the top and bottom plates and the battery is…
"I am using a Futaba 701 governor on my pixhawk controlled Vario helicopter. You have to set up the RSC ch 8 function for pass-through and you can also use the new RSC idle and RUNUP time in AC3.3 to ensure that the rotor head is at operating speed…"
More often then not, when I power on my heli and connect via MP I get a Compasses Inconsistent warning and obviously cannot ARM the autopilot. I can see that the headings are good and not drifting. Sometimes…"
"Could someone explain the Leaky I term to me please? I have not messed with this setting yet and saw that with 3.3 the default should be a value of 300 when actually it is 0. One of the first times I tried flying 3.3 I had one instance where the…"
