Having a really inexcusible issue with my OrangeCube and Kore board. It will randomly erase all Arducopter parameters and write the defaults. Of course this totally screws up the bird and I need to load my saved parameter set which may or may not…
No the 5.4mm lens does not affect the gimbal performance at all, the lens is pretty much identical in size and weight to the existing lens, but removes the fisheye effect.You may use the standard lens, but overlap should be increased to…"
"Compass Variance on takeoff is most likely cause by electro magnetic interference from the motor/ESC/batteries during high throttle. To fix twist up wires for all Pixhawk accessories, and make an effort to run the GPS and Mag wires as far away from…"
"The horizontal and vertical position variance errors are thrown when the EKF and GPS or other sensors do not agree.
The most common time when this error is thrown is when flying in moderate to strong wind with a pitot tube. Adjust the parameter…"
"LD,The sun came out and I lowered the values some more, I'm -10 from the starting value now. The lidar is reading better, but still about 10-20% off in the bright sunlight. Should I lower APD 1 more or is there another setting to adjust?"
Thank you! I have followed your instructions and lowered the APD value by 4. After doing this the lidar is reading much more accurately outside. Of course it's overcast now so I will test in bright sunlight and hopefully my issue is solved!"
Not to rush you, but I'm very anxious to get my problem with the SF11/C solved asap. Can you please post the next step or two? The company I work for hopes to integrate a LIDAR unit into our production drone and we'd like to use this unit…"
"I have been doing extensive testing of the SF11/C and a SF10/B that I had previously. I am finding that the SF10 is much more accurate than the SF11, and in fact, the SF11's accuracy is pretty poor comparatively.
I noticed that inside my shop both…"
"Hi all,I have got one of these SF11/C units on a quad and it is performing very well. I am extremely surprised at how accurate it is up to 100m+ very cool!
I do have one issue and I think it's Pixhawk related. When using RTL or Land, the copter…"
"In addition to the motor direction shown here, the Pixhawk treats the X8 configuration the same as an X4 configuration, and sends identical signals to the motor pairs on each arm if I'm not mistaken. "
