Hi,I have an Y6 that flies very well (knocks on wood), I think I solved most of my problems with previous designs and it flies really straight and there's not much of mag interference etc.But Loiter just doesn't work for me. It look like it works…
"I was using prop savers from the beginning and never had a problem, but you need to make sure they perfectly match the props (that they "snap" into their bottoms) and I always use two O-rings (had them snap a few times and this saved the day).
"I believe RTL just goes straight home at an altitude of home + 8 meteres. Not sure if it first ascends though and I doubt it, so it will likely kill it if behind something.
In this case I guess it's better for it to just hold position while you…"
"Steve, gyro will drift over a period of time, and for this same reason you cannot achieve autoleveling with just gyro but you also need accelerometer. You can't calculate absolute orientation position with it - it only gives you the speed of…"
"Marco, I'm talking about the old (current) behaviour - in that case the offset calibration is performed whenever the copter is armed, and this is the default behaviour. If I want to keep the learned offsets I'd have to recompile with compass…"
"I have had a much better flight experience after a clean reset/recalibration of everything and PID setup (all from memory), including the mag calibration (calibrated with planner). I then flew through a few packs and the yaw slowly deteriorated…"
"Btw, if telemetry is connected, it doesn't react by showing "No GPS" either - it remembers the last location. I guess it just doesn't care when GPS messages stop coming so it's like losing packets. I'd put some sort of heartbeat in there (APM, not…"
"You can use alt hold. Tune and try it where you can see it, and make a note how much throttle you need to descent at the wanted rate. The same goes for Loiter mode. You can set your transmitter to trigger the predefined throttle at a press of a…"
"1. mount in the center of gravity. Anti vibration measures vary from frame to frame so there's no golden rule for that. Sometimes using no vibration dampening works better than silicone rings or thick rubber tape. Try a few materials (plastic rings,…"
"Does it happen always or only when flying outside? Some ESCs are suspectible to cold - if you let them be for a while they warm a little, holding them in hand helps. This signal is usually that there is incorrect signal (too low/high pwm). Try…"
"I tried 2.5 today outdoor. Config Hexa X, Turnigy SK3 2826 1120kV motors, 8" props, 1.5kg AUW
(megapirate 2.5r2, flyduino mega, not original APM)
It took a lot of tuning and again different PIDs from 2.4.2 for some reason and I could not achieve…"
"Yaw drift is a known issue of recent firmwares and has been addressed, wait for a new version, should be out shortly.
Also it is a little better if you let your copter sit powered on for a few minutes before arming and flying, sometimes it's…"
