Autotune PID values not used in FBWA and other modes

Hello all,On my Wing Wing z84 I use an APM 2.8 with Arduplane 3.4. I know this is archaic hardware and software. But I have it laying around so why not use it.I have performed an extended autotune…Continue

Hello all,In the last couple of months I have utterly destroyed two Bixlers. Needless to say I need some advice.The last crash went like this. The auto mode was set up to fly a trip around the ball…Continue

Hi pilots,If you look at the picture you see how I have mounted the external compass and GPS. The arrow the the direction it should be mounted. However I have not followed the direction because the…Continue

Hi fellow pilots,I have a strange issue with my rudder servo. When I move the yaw stick the rudder servo is not moving. The swash servos do move when I move the yaw stick.All other controls are…Continue

Autotune PID values not used in FBWA and other modes

Hello all,On my Wing Wing z84 I use an APM 2.8 with Arduplane 3.4. I know this is archaic hardware and software. But I have it laying around so why not use it.I have performed an extended autotune flight and I am pretty happy with the results. As far as I know the PID values are storen every ten seconds. I can confirm that every time I fly in autotune it behaves according to these new PID values. That's great. It also seems that these PID values are persistent accross shutdowns of the APM.…See More

"I have to ask, have you done test flights in FBW-A and Loiter? At what angle does the plane climb in FBW-A with at 80% throttle and holding full up pitch? Are all your control surfaces moving the right amount? What amount of elevator up/down is…"

"One additional remark: the Arduplane seemed to respond sluggish to keeop the plane level. When I had the plane in my hand before flight I noticed the sluggish movement of the servos like the Ardupilot was giving just a little bit of input."

Bix3 crash in auto mode (log included)

Hello all,In the last couple of months I have utterly destroyed two Bixlers. Needless to say I need some advice.The last crash went like this. The auto mode was set up to fly a trip around the ball park at an altitue of 60 meters (approx. 200ft). When I put the plane in auto mode on the ground the prop went spinning and she took of in a head wind. Then the plane climbed to an altitude of maybe 5 meters (approx. 16 ft) and headed for waypoint 1. The altitude remaind way too low and the turns…See More

"For some reason I can't get it to work. I may have found an explanation. When I turn the APM 2.6 itself the compass turns from south to north or whatever I point it to. So it seems the APM has an on board compass. I assume it would cause…"

"@testuser0001, You also have to remember that the compass is on the bottom of the GPS/Compass module so it is upside down. So not only do you have to change the yaw direction, as you have done, you must indicate that the compass is upside…"

"It is very strange. No matter what yaw I set it to it still keeps pointing in the wrong direction. I give the APM a power cycle after I set the yaw of the compass."

"For some reason I thought this was a live adjustment. I was wrong. When I am able to work on my plane again I will check this. This should fix it I think. By the way, +90 degrees yaw should do the trick? I will check this out. Thanks for your…"

"Reboot and redo compass calibration after changing compass orientation. Also check your declination is correct for your location. A small variation in direction is OK, ie 5-10°."

"Thanks Randy fir the link. Honestly I had already seen that. For some reason none of the orientations works good enough. The direction is correct i.e. move the plane left, the compass goes left and vice versa. But when I point the nose of the plan…"

"testuser0001, There are some instructions here on the copter wiki which show how to figure out what the orientation should be."

External Compass direction

Hi pilots,If you look at the picture you see how I have mounted the external compass and GPS. The arrow the the direction it should be mounted. However I have not followed the direction because the wires come out of the left side of the module.Ofcourse the compass direction is wrong now. If I point the nose north the direction it gives is not north.How can I change this? By the way the APM itself is upside down so I have set AHRS_ORIENTATION to 8. The APM itself is pointing the correct way. The…See More
