Hopefully someone can help out here.
I am trying to switch from FrSky D8R-II Plus to a D8R-XP so that I can use CPPM.
I previously had six flight modes configured in my Turnigy 9X.
Now that I have connected the new RX and tried to use it I see that both
I have a problem with my new X8 and APM 2.5 and the latest Arduplane firmware.
Whenever I switch to loiter the aircraft loiters but loses altitude fairly rapidly.
I have not had this issue with previous planes I have used the autopilot in, only the X8.
I have a seperate BEc to power my APM.
In the attopilot setup instructions in the mission planner it says I should measure my ESC voltage and subtract 0.3v from it get the correct voltage calculation.
What's the procedure if using a separate BEC?
I think my APM just died midflight of course leading to a crash.
I have attached the tlog. The flight does not start till 80% through the log.
I took off in manual switched to loiter then to auto for a 3 waypoint mission.
The plane flew the mission then
I recently purchased a UBLOX LEA6 GPS for my quad.
I have had some good flights and some not so good.
This evening I did the power hack on my APM 1 to power the receiver from the USB.
I have the APM 1 connected via USB and the copter is indoors so not m
I haven't flown my quad for a while now and after hearing the good things about 2.7.2 thought I would take it out today.
Uploaded the new firmware last night and set everything up. All looked good.
Took it out to the field this morning and it would not
I have a strange problem with my APM1 2560.
If I load the arducopter code the compass works completely as expected.
If I load arduplane 2.40 code on the same APM then the compass keeps coming up disabled.
I can set it to enabled but when I next connect
I really have no idea how to analyse the log files.
This afternoon I was flying 2.5 from the git repository.
It does seem to fly better than 2.4.1.
Then I tried loiter and things did not go well.
I am only fairly new at this so was flying stabilize simpl
I recently destroyed an oiplan in a crash.
Ordered a new one and built it along with a new compass.
This time I have connected the compass via the i2c cable.
Trouble is it is very slow to show changes in direction in the mission planner.
I have been testing on my test rig.
I switch to RTL and the copter looks like is is doing something different than stabilize.
However when I check the log file I dont see RTL anywhere.
All I see as far as MOD: lines go is
MOD: STABILIZE, xxx
How can I te
Having had a few successful flights and a few non-successful flight of my 3DR arducopter I have a question which is somewhat along the lines of a previous post about throttle sensitivity.
How hard would it be to limit the ceiling of the flight to say
Can anyone tell me the best source of prop adapters for the 3DR arducopters.
I ordered some 3mm shaft diameter adapters here in Australia but they are too tight.
Is the actual shaft size 3mm or something else, I do not have any decent calipers at prese
