I have tried to use the APM 2.5 on the FPV Raptor without great success.First of all, it does not keep altitude during turns in Auto and secondly, it only uses throttle to try to keep altitude. Have…Continue
"I guess it all depends what you're going to do with it.
If it's for tilt, you probably need a bit more power, for use maybe less. But if your AT is very heavy, you may choose higher ratio.
I 3D printer the gears myself and balanced the…"
Many has changed since APM, you'll be surprised. Best thing to do is connect the AT to mission planner, select Antenna tracker from the drop down box in the upper right hand corner and look at the error messages you get.
"Well, yes and no. On one side, it could be commercialized, but I still consider it just a more rigid, heavy duty version.
It's not difficult to print and assemble, but I also realize it will not be the beginners kind of thing.
"There are still some modifications to be done, but the concept is working very fine.
Once it is finished, I will make the STL files available for download. Everything is printed in ABS to make it temperature resistant. PLA will get soft during…"
"Actually, the AT with version 0.8 is working very fine.
I'm working on a heavy duty version, all 3D printer parts and the first prototype is already in action.
It is super accurate, simple to build and very few components are needed."
"I can confirm the deviations in tracking, as well as delays, as well as pointing correctly if the plane moves from right to left and a big deviation when the plane moves from left to right. It makes it almost useless. Sorry to be so critical, but…"
"By the way, don't wait longer before doing the release. I test when a release comes put, I don't test beta stuff... I think it was perfectly ok to do the release. I hope you can find what went wrong."
