"Not upside -down - just swap 2 wires so they rotate the wrong way. I did my testing by hooking the ESC's directly to the receiver and testing just one at a time and holding the copter arm in one hand while playing with the throttle with the other…"
"Well if it *does* fail my suggested test that would be great news and you might be able to adjust the ESC modules (mine are programmable by toggling the throttle and listening to the crazy beep patterns. Or you might want to get new ones. But if…"
"Mathieu - try connecting your receiver directly to your ESC module and while holding the copter down safely use your transmitter to move the motor from full off to full on back and forth very quickly, pause at different speeds and make sudden and…"
"Conveniently in the post above your post shows where those values go. RPGain goes in the P and I values for the Rate box for either roll or pitch depending which axis it was working on (take the final values before it switched to the next axis). I…"
It seems like I saw some posts that showed screenshots from some datalog analyzer other than the one built into apm planner. I googled around and found one but I thought I saw a different one in a post.Could someone please list datalog analyzer…
"So I got it figured out. The main thing seems to be that when my controls on my transmitter are completely centered they tend to put out a signal of around 1466 instead of 1499. So I had to trim it all to be happy for the apm software. I wish the…"
"I take it back. I *did* do the radio calibration step. So maybe I should calibrate the transmitter instead? It seems to be a crappy quality transmitter - turnigy 9x - $40 included transmitter and 8ch receiver. The yaw joystick needs constant…"
"Ah! When I upgraded to 3.2 it seemed to have remembered all the parameters so I didn't do the radio calibration again. I'll do that before I fly it again! It remembered the gyro calibration. Don't know why it lost the radio calibration. Thanks…"
"I had to add bit 16 to the log I think. Anyway I got two ATUN events this time. When I first switched to autotune it definitely rolled hard (in a perfect, controlled, safe way) and then did one more 16 seconds later and then never again. The wind…"
