Current fluctuations with steady throttle

Started Jul 25, 2015 0 Replies

Hello, I came across some weird numbers and am trying to figure out what's going on.Bixler 3, with a vanilla latest Arduplane (V3.3.0, no airframe specific tuning params) flying mostly RTL and Guided…Continue

Arduplane - Terrain following problems

Started this discussion. Last reply by Graham Dyer Dec 12, 2015. 1 Reply

Hello, I 'm having trouble with the latest Arduplane V3.3.0 (6be0932d).Got a Pixhawk (so far working perfectly on a quad) and flashed it with the above Arduplane version. Connected to MP to be told…Continue

I 'm sorry if this has been posted before, I couldn't find another reference to it on the site. Is this the most exciting breakthrough in our lifetimes or have I missed something? It looks like the…Continue

"Awesome! Once the underlying electronics become off the shelf we 'll also get ion drive hair dryers, vacuum cleaners and fans."

"I am aware of the SLAM algorithms, not that you really need full blown SLAM if your only purpose is to avoid bumping into things but it helps. aeiou's Dawn is, as far as I can tell, proprietary. To the best of my knowledge, none of these…"

"@ The Sun Well, if these algorithms exist, I am not aware of them. In terms of planning, the best planning I have seen is the MIT airplane (2012), which uses lidar. More recently, we have this pushbroom algorithm (2015), again from MIT, which, to my…"

"I see, but position is not the only thing you need, it is the only thing we have come to rely on in the absence of a viable alternative. The holy grail for flying things remains obstacle detection at all ranges (Cessna at 1 km, branch at 2 metres).…"

"Nice! This looks like a lot of fun. Chris, why have we not seen similar in flying things? Is the 3D environment too complicated (compared to a flat plane populated with yellow lines and orange triangles)? Is the processing hardware too heavy?"

Andreas Gazis commented on Jordi Muñoz's blog post Announcing Blimpduino 2.0
"This looks awesome. However, the balloons on offer do not seem to have any serious payload capacity so, apart from really cool indoor toys, there doesn't seem to be a cheap, open source blimp that can be a serious alternative to a multirotor in…"

"To tell you the truth, speech recognition will be such a breakthrough that I am afraid to even dream about it for fear of disappointment. Often, taking eyes off the model even for a second can be extremely inconvenient. Very recently, I spent…"

Andreas Gazis commented on Azjeg's blog post Light FPV GCS and payload controller, call for design input...
"This is probably a dumb question but what is the current state of speech recognition? If a small subset of commands (the flight modes really, they only a handful) can be recognised by a relatively low powered processor, that would be a dream come…"

Andreas Gazis replied to Federico's discussion Automatic TakeOff Issue
"One thing that might perhaps be relevant is that, if take off angle is not set, the aircraft will not rise. Automatic waypoint creation (e.g. via Survey Grid) will put a non-zero angle but manually making a take off WP will create it with zero angle…"

Andreas Gazis replied to Jim Townsend's discussion Problems with battery monitor calibration
"The wizards in MP just change a bunch of parameters in a reasonable way (so that, ideally, you don't end up with absurd or inconsistent param values). However, you can just simply go and change the params directly (Config / Tuning Tab and then…"

Andreas Gazis commented on Azjeg's blog post Light FPV GCS and payload controller, call for design input...
"The reason I use 2-3 flight modes on the Tx is that it is easy to accomodate on most Txs. This is also why I never head to the field without a laptop, Tx alone just doesn't cut it. Personally would absolutely love to have at the very least…"
