Using APM1 and 2.7.3 MTek GPS on custom Quad frame - Tested Stabile, Alt Hold and Loiter only
Default PID values for stabilization.
All I can say is wow, after shelving my equipment for 8 months getting back to the ArduCopter project is…"
"I agree with Chris - found that out last night while having difficulty in getting the AC2 HILS running. When in doubt start from scratch (I don't even use old setup files - just in case)
By the way, did you guys notice something strange about the…"
"Hi Gareth, I got -17.32 for Pretoria - entered it like that and looked at the Flight Data page while rotating and turning the quad - looks within 10 deg to my untrained eye. Now I guess its up to flight testing...
"Hi Adam, many months have passed and I require to be able to reflash the PPM Encoder/Decoder too. Same usbtiny device... Have you had any luck with your fuse settings? I flash it with the latest firmware but haven't set any fuses at all...
"If it is quick oscillations you can decrease the Rate P value, if it is slow oscillations you can decrease the Stabilise P value. Remeber to adjust both the Roll and Pitch values :-)
Friends of mine also went to 12" props and found exactly the same…"
"I think I may have found the solution to my problem -For all my flying I use a Hitec Eclipse 7 transmitter with a Fr-Sky 2.4GHz TX Module. When doing HILS testing I found the unpredictable Mode switching and rudder lockout. However, I then tried a…"
I have experienced a delay when switching from Alt_Hold to Stabilize and this caused a little crash. The funny thing is that it 'feels' like the same type of lag when the rudder commands become unresponsive.I have logged an issue here:…
"Thanks for the update Chris, I noticed the Mission Planner's revamp on Saturday and boy, things are getting much more user-friendly, although my wife would probably still not figure it out ;-)
Thanks to everyone involved"
I flew an ArduCopter this weekend in Mode 1 with a student on a buddy-box in Mode 2.
The signal reaches the receiver and the receiver gives Aileron, Elevator, Throttle, Rudder and Mode inputs to the processor board regardless of how the…"
"I think Kamu is right, I've tried to connect to a ftp server on a laptop which had a GPRS connection. Also got a dns from dyndns.com, but to no avail. No incoming connections to the ftp server could be established. Someone mentioned that the cell…"
"Hi, my interest is using a module like this to transfer telemetry from my uav to the gcs instead of a pair of Xbees. My only interest with this module is internet via gprs for the least cost method as well as the highest bandwidth. But I'm not sure…"
