I've been out of the game for a few months and just got round to installing 3.0.1. Testing it out today in the back yard it seemed to work fine until I switched to Alt-Hold. In Alt-Hold mode the just kept wanting to climb until I switched it b
Well I went out this morning to try and fly my Bixler for the first time. I have quite a bit of multirotor flying experience, but no fixed wing outside of a simulator. I guess predictably it ended in failure.
On occasion when hovering I find my quad descends all the way to ground without being commanded to do so. Nothing spectacular, it just sinks until it touches the ground then sometimes comes back up a bit. Increasing the throttle doesn't necessarily s
The first I took my quad out to test 2.5.3 loiter was a bit sketchy. The quad screamed from one edge of the field to the other, overshooting by a greater amount each time. (See below, it started somewhere in the middle. The pattern is about 35m acros
Yep, it looks like I'm that retarded. I was in the process of wiring up a USB plug up to my quad to power my GoPro. Well, I mistakenly hooked it up to 12V direct from the battery instead of regulated 5V and POP it went. A bit of smoke even came out t

I've been using cheap and nasty 9g servos for my mount, one came from sparkfun, one from HK, others elsewhere. Anyway, I'm now 3 for 3 in having stripped the gears in them, they don't seem up to the task.
Flew for the first time in a while this morning, my first test of 2.2. I ran into an issue where in ALT_HOLD mode at low level the quad would gradually sink into the ground. From memory I had this issue with other FW versions too, so it's probably my
Just loaded 2.0.55 (three times all up) and for some reason the gyros refuse to initialise. Running the IMU command in CLI just keeps displaying * characters after "Initialising gyros" but never resolves.
I've noticed a few posts claiming sonar noise can be reduced by shielding the cable. What's the consensus on how to do this? I've seen some posts saying the ground the shielding at both ends, others just one. I'd appreciate any thoughts/feedback.
