"Hi all and specifically Marco Robustini,
Auto Tune on a HEAVY Hex:
So I am trying to summerize what I need to do to get a good Autotune given that my first one on my newly built Hex Frame did not turn out very well tuned:
Result of the Autotune…"
"At last. I just downloaded the MP for OSX. It is AMAZING! The look is very clean. Functionality is uncluttered. Very user friendly and Intuitive. This is the V2.0.0 (Beta-RC2) so there are some minor bugs but they do not affect the main operation.…"
My BarAlt seems very noisy to me. Is this something to do with 3.1-rc7 or is that I am getting too much prop wash? I also noticed that the foam (that protects the Barometer) inside my 1 year APM 2.5 is not as flexible and a little…"
"When and will there be optical flow support for the Pixhawk? This should help in refining the GPS glitch problem and also produce ultra solid loiter. There is also the potential of using it for Alt-Hold refining maybe?"
"Nice DJI OSD. I really think that we need to revamp the 3DR minimosd, its has served us well but it is time to come up with something better. It needs to be better in reporting informations. This includes a less jumpy display when there is a lot of…"
I think there is a bug in 3.1-rc7. I am using the 3DR mini osd (updated to v2.0 including character set) and the flight mode is not displaying. Difficult when flying FPV. Everything else displaying fine.
The setup is AMP 2.5,…"
I am planning my next build using the F800R from Rctimer.
What are you guys using for the PMU? The 3DR Power unit is not capable of handling the power, so I guess you are connecting a BEC directly to the APM2.5?
"3.1-rc5: So my X8 FELL DOWN FROM THE SKY BAD. Brand new Nex5T Camera and lense destroyed. Gimbal mangled and destroyed. Frame mangled and cracked. Not much is left. I had to collect the pieces in a small bucket. Big $$$$$ loss.
I will be installing the 3DR Pixhawk on a converted Hexa-B to X8 configuration with AC 3.0.1 for experimentation. My X8 is configured exactly as your 3DR X8 from a frame point of view, i.e. the arms are on a shallow angle "><" and not…"
"OK, I know I don't not want to go to DJI ANYTHING (and we know why)...
So I have been doing this for over a year and half now and have gone through multiple AC versions, multiple configurations (custom Hex, Hexa-B, converted Hexa-B to Y6 to X8),…"
I have converted my HEXA-B to an X8 configuration. It looks very similar to the 3DR RTF X8 except it has a much higher landing gear. AUW is almost 5Kg ( I have an NEX5T with gimbal attached and I use 2X 5800 mah) . It flies perfectly well in…"
"My custom Hex (heavy) oscillates up and down slowly by about 1m while in stabilize mode (Goes up slowly in Alt hold). It is very hard to get the throttle at the right position for it to stop. Do I need to decrease throttle rate P and increase D?…"
