Hi folks,I am looking at using an APM2.5 i have spare from an old quadcopter to put into one of my planes.I am looking at only using the stabilize flight mode, and use the apm as just a really good stabilizer - as my current orangerx stabilizer just…
Hey folks,I have UHF for my RC and 1.2Ghz for my video on a Bixler.Do harmonics only affect higher frequencies?So my video signal wont interfere with my RC - but my RC might interfere with my video?Thanks so much!
"I also just got a 'Pre-arm check mag field' error. I wonder if it is getting these when i am trying to arm the quad.
I never got those errors before - so how can my fpv gear be causing mag error, and how can i fix it if it is the problem?"
Hey folks, I am having some issues arming my APM 2.5 quadcopter after adding some fpv gear to it.I have an Deadcat frame, with 1.2ghz for FPV, 900mhz for telemetry, and 433mhz for RC.I dont really use the telemetry radios, so i am not worried about…
"I have heard that many people have problems with deadcat style of configuration. It has the front motors further apart - so the APM thinks the motor aren't where they are. Arducopter configuration doesn't have an option to specify the new location…"
"Perfect! Thanks for your input. Much appreciated. I will change the p accel value, possibly make two throttle curves, and i am also getting a sonar. That should sort out the throttle issues. But the deadcat still wants to fly forward all the time so…"
"I think i may have this sorted out.
I am experimenting with throttle curves, in particular the expo throttle curve on the 9XR which should hopefully give me a stable hover.
I am also putting a sonar module on the quad to help in altitude hold…"
Hey folks,I have a 9XR that i just started using to fly my APM deadcat quad with.The problem is that the throttle stick is way too sensitive for me.I used to fly the quad with a cheaper radio set and the throttle stick seemed great. I had too move…
"UPDATE: Today i tested altitude hold mode and i love it! I am impressed with the way it works. However when i fly a bit more aggressively it will sometimes loose height as if it is not aggressively enough trying to maintain its altitude, also…"
I have put the APM in its black enclosure, it has black foam over the barometer and is nice and sealed up. I attempted to graph the same variables you graphed above for comparison (attached below). It appears that the altitude is now…"
"Ahha! Perhaps its my barometer then. I mentioned my concerns for prop wash at the start - It is not protected from sunlight at the moment - but i have an enclosure it will be going into ASAP.
I read up…"
"Haha, sorry - here is the IMU .log and the mission planner .tlog for the same flight i think. Do they open up alright? Thanks for your time trying to figure this out much appreciated.2014-04-14 14-37-31.log2014-04-14 14-34-57.tlog"
