Getting rock solid QLOITER

Anyone knows how to tune to get a very stable copter like QLOITER? I'm facing issues where my quadplane drifts away from the landing spot. I've turned on the weather vaning and forward motor function to help keep it into the wind, but am still unable to land safely. Anyone has any ideas? My gains for qwvane and the forward motor(can't remb the name) is roughly near the recommended number. Didn't dare to adjust it too much.Any tips?See More

"Are you running the APM firmware or Pixhawk? running APM and my aux outputs do nothing... they are enabled and mapped. I can control the gimbal from the X8R directly but not through the pins 1-6 (51-56) on the Px4 - at least not using APM Copter…"

"Brad, Ignore the BRD_CAN_ENABLE parameter. This setting disappeared on me as well after an update of MP (currently running the latest beta for fun). The missing setting has no effect. I believe the issue is the splitter. If you can temporarily…"

"Grazie! Like I said - SBUS works great for me but, like others on this thread, I can not get it to function via PWM."

"Brad, Am I understanding you are using a SBUS splitter? If so try SBUS without the splitter. Did you follow the settings I described in Mission Planner? It is imperative you enable, SBUS passthrough on the channels controlling the gimbal and set…"
