Arduino RC Plane Flight!

Hey guys,Check out this video of my most recent Arduino based scratch built RC airplane! Right now it is manually flown (with a scratch built Arduino transmitter), but I plan on developing autopilot modes and eventually make it fully autonomous - including takeoff and landing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ne_yRT7nEVk&t=47sThe main flight itself is relatively uneventful, but the takeoff and landing are quite…See More

Picking Initial Control Gains

Hey folks,I've scratch built an RC plane and ground station (hardware, software, and frame all scratch built - not using Ardupilot nor a pixhawk) and want to develop an autopilot for it.I'm familiar with control systems and I'm considering using a software PID controller for a simple pitch and roll holding autopilot (nothing too fancy). The only problem is that I'm not sure what range of gains will keep my plane stable. If the initial gains are too high, it'll go uncontrollable and crash. If…See More
