"Did you ever figure this out?  I've just run into the same problem on all my computers.  Thanks!"

Shaun Bell replied to Ewen Rankin's discussion One Hour Flight Times - Specs
"It's a tricky thing getting good flight times and stability.  They definitely don't play well together.  My 1300mm X8 is a handful to get over 30min.  Big props lead to all kinds of problems."

Shaun Bell replied to Veikko Vierola's discussion Temperature sensor support on APM
"Any headway with the temperature monitoring?  I'm starting to fly in below 0°C.  I'm keeping the batteries in a thermostatically controlled case until flight and wrapped in insulation.  But it would be nice to know if the pack temp are below optimal…"

Shaun Bell replied to Ronny Grimm's discussion Please Help with stability issue on BIG D-130 X8
"Hey Ronny, you ever have the wobble show up again?  I'm getting instability at anything over 5m/s.  My setup is pretty much exactly like yours.  I put the batteries on the bottom as well, but it's not by choice, I needed to mount a GNSS antenna on t…"

"I presume the hover throttle being 3.4rc5 would have been a learned parameter.  As for the minimum throttle setting at 25%, I never actually set it.  Just did the usual radio calibration.  Maybe I should reset all the parameters and start again.  I'…"

"I would have thought the frame pretty stiff.  It's a Foxtech D130 with 30mm booms.  I also added an cross stiffener to make it even more rigid.  This frame has been used a lot with DJI A3's and WooKong AP.  But not many flying a pixhawk.  Maybe give…"

"This is what's supposed to be attached to the X8...  I think if I saw the X8 freak out in forward flight like it did with this attached I'd have a heat attack!  Again, I really appreciate you looking at this.  The vibration must be some lower freque…"

"Hi Leonard,

Maybe starting with a better manual tune would help.  I saw somewhere (youtube) that you stated by putting D on a rotary know and adjusting until an oscillation.  Then the same for P (I=P) and finally stabilize.  I presume backing off a…"

"You saw the picture of this X8?  Pretty frustrating working with this the last few days, but that made me laugh.  Image that spinning around all angry on a rope lol!

"Went out again for another AT, but this time at .05 aggr setting.  Not very good.  hovers ok, but start moving and it get pretty unstable.  During the AT near the end of the pitch step it lost control for a bit but recovered.

Log from today's AT at…"

Tuning is pretty crazy.  A lot of pitching in forward flight.  Enough to almost send it to the ground but it recovered later in the loiter part of t…"
