"Hi Bill,
many thanks again. I did the reset and re-did all the calibrations. Next time I will save my parameters before trying something like autotune :-)

Thanks again for your time and all the best,
Michael"

Michael Ransburg replied to Michael Ransburg's discussion How to reset PIDs
"Hi Bill!

Many thanks. But it seems that I can only reset _all_ Parameters this way, so I would need to redo compass calibration and so on, right? Is there a way to only reset the PIDs?

If there is no easy way to do that, can someone please post sc…"

Hi all,I'm using ArduCopter 3.2 on APM 2.x HW. I used autotune to autotune my PIDs and first they looked good, so I saved them. After analyzing my logs, however, I see that I do not like the new PIDs after all and I would like to revert them to the…

Michael Ransburg replied to Michael Ransburg's discussion Arducopter - first flight
"...could the problem be related to the fact, that I used velcro to mount the Ardupilot? Could this lead to vibrations which might explain the shown behavior? Or is it only a matter of PID settings?
Thanks,
Michael"

Hi all,yesterday I had my first flight with my Arducopter-powered Quadcopter. It worked pretty much ok, although I had a slight "wobbling" effect during flight.You can see this effect in the video:What would you say - is this simply a tuning problem…

Michael Ransburg replied to Michael Ransburg's discussion Uploading through shield does not work?
"A small update: I loaded the "Sensor Input" test script directly to Ardupilot. I then connected the shield and I connected the FTDI cable to the shield. Airspeed is shown correctly when I blow into the nozzles. Also the "Analog IN" values are changi…"
