Had model Helicopters many yours ago and just getting back into RCM again.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

This is my first Hexacopter and getting it 100% tuned is proving to be challenging

I am in the process of build an X8 plane using Pixhawk and am wondering what happens if flying a pre planned mission and the model transitions out of RC range on the extreme boundary of the mission space. Will the model continue to fly the mission o…

"I should have looked at your log earlier so I apologize, I can see you are running a 4S lipo the cutoff voltage for safety of your machine for 4S should be in the area of 14.4 but no lower than 14 volts. You reach this in the first 3.5 minutes. I th…"

"Just had a look at your Loiter fail. bin. Sorry I missed it. Your hover is around 55% so your machine is under powered. Having the Throttle mid at 40% makes the situation worse. Enter 55% into the Throttle mid setting. You could consider upgrading t…"

"Hi Steve
You did not indicate what mode you were switching from before entering Alt hold and Loiter but I presume it was stabilize.  Depending on the weight of your multirotor, and the power of your motors/propellers your machine maybe over powered…"

"Hi David
Can you confirm you are running Opentx on your Taranis. I have this Droneshop option on my Hex and it works just fine, however its was a bit involved in getting it to work correctly. Peter from the Droneshop has a installation video on Yout…"

"In the Taranis plus setting the Fail safe does not need any button pressing when using the X8R receiver, its all done in the Tx or using Open Tx.

When flying a Multirotyor using RX or TX failsafe is dangerous and could lead to model fly-away etc, T…"

Yes its possible but the reported message maybe different to what you suggested. If you install the "Craft and Theory" software and cable interface not only will you have this reported messages on the Taranis screen but also with an announc…"

Henny V replied to Mike's discussion Pixhawk only arms through right stick and quad keeps flipping
"Hi Mike
The drift in stabilize can be caused by two factors. You need to ensure your model is balanced correctly around the COG, move the battery to achieve this. Also the gyro calibration can cause drift. place your model on a level surface and vie…"

"Don,t use the Taranis failsafe its a dangerous option for a multirotor. Set your Taranis TX to no pulse. When the APM senses no pulses from the RX it can select Flight controller failsafe if you have the PWM set correctly in the Mission planner FS l…"

Go back to the start of the setup procedure. Your machine is behaving very strangely. Have you gone thru all the required setup steps or have you simply put the hardware together. You need to upload quad firmware to pixhawk before any setti…"

"Hi Gerhard

To perform autotune you must have the following. In alt hold mode and the throttle at or very close to 50%. If the throttle is not 50% autotune wont start. I recommend you perform the 3 axis autotune one at a time. This is set in Mission…"
