I'm trying to find a way to do a controlled slow, smooth yaw (though if it can't be smooth, I can live with it) while in auto mode hovering at a waypoint. I've tried using "wait for heading" (mav_cmd_condition_yaw) but nothing seems to happen. Am I…
Growing tired of the various protocols and techniques to assure motors shutdown on landing without bouncing, tilting, falls and other damaging disturbances, I assumed that code already exists to permit the attachment of a landing sensor (e.g.…
Fairly recently, my Pixhawk based system (running 3.3 series AC) has started flying off wildly in one direction (then often flipping) in stabilize mode. However, loiter seems to be essentially fine. Stumped. Any ideas? Thanks!
"Given parts inventories, it's likely to be hit or miss for quite some time. But as discussed elsewhere in this thread, the 1M "limit" really should not be a big deal in practice -- there are a variety of workarounds."
"Yes, there is 2MB of flash in all of these, and the developers have already made it clear that there shouldn't be any significant problems in normal usage with the units that have certain limitations in accessing the top 1M under certain specific…"
Hi. After weeks of fighting this I'm getting pretty close to giving up on ever getting Er9x firmware installed on my 9x transmitter, using a SmartieParts SP Basic programmer board.The 9x is new and of recent vintage with the programming pads in the…
"I would note that in general, the trend toward higher levels of integration in complex systems (not just avionics systems) is driven by the fact that the single most common point of failure in more distributed systems is the interboard/sensors…"
"I agree. While you probably don't want the radios mounted directly on top of each other, the real world interference issues between 2.4 Ghz RC and 2.4 Ghz Wi-Fi are much less significant than might be assumed. And of course in many typical…"
"Thanks Randy. I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but I'm hopeful that various techniques that have worked for problems like this in other contexts will be effective in this instance once the limit becomes a significant problem. As I mentioned…"
"I would also point out that in my experience, manufacturers often have a confusing inventory of different steppings of CPUs that end up willy-nilly in products, even with the best of intentions, and often in conflict with the answers they provide to…"
