Hello there,I'm trying to get an octocopter I built to perform well enough on Loiter. Stabilize always works really well, but loiter sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.It shows toilet bowl-like…Continue
I saw an article about China banning the export of drone(parts) and supercomputer(parts). It appears China is going to ban the more high end drones, including drones with "wind stabilization" and…Continue
"Thanks for both of your insights.
Based on the given suggestions, I made some changes and flew again in two areas. I tested Loiter and WPNav, with success. However I am not convinced the problem won't come back again, time will tell.
"How close are your esc's to the pixhack or gps? Somethings that ussually helps is raising the gps on a mast, moving gps away from power wires and esc's, twisting the ground and power wires to reduce electromagnetic interference."
"Yes, currents in the FC and close peripherals can cause magnetic interference, definitely. APM2.0 had problems as it only had compass onboard and many things were tried to get around this. The way I understand it is that you can disable the internal…"
"You're right, I am only using the internal compass. Quite stupid of me to completely forget about that.. However, I disabled it on purpose, months ago. There is a part of the story I completely forgot to mention.Months ago, the only way I could…"
"Toilet bowling is usually caused by the compass heading being out of phase with the true heading of the MR. Calibration fixes this normally on the ground but in the air other things can come into effect, particularly magnetic fields generated by DC…"
Hello there,I'm trying to get an octocopter I built to perform well enough on Loiter. Stabilize always works really well, but loiter sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.It shows toilet bowl-like behaviour, where it spirals out of control. Horizontal speed keeps increasing until it touches ground or hits something.I tried the following, to no avail:- Calibrated compass using On-Board calibration. Offsets: (X:~16 Y:~49 Z:~35)- Recalibrated acc and gyros- Adjusted (without adjusting other…See More
