New: Configuration file repository for ArduCopter and APM

One of the cool features of the Mission Planner is that you can load and save configuration files. So you can not only have different files for different aircraft, but also share them with others.


This is particularly handy for common airframes. Once someone has tuned one well, they can upload their configuration file and save others the trouble of having to go through the same process.


I've now created a place in the APM and ArduCopter wikis that you can use to share configuration files. Please post your files in the comments here and I'll upload them to the relevant wikis as they come in.


The APM Configuration File Repository is here.


The AC2 Configuration File Repository is here.


*** Note, 2.0.26, and 2.0.27 had a flaw that switched Alt_hold and Simple mode. Don't fly it. This is fixed in 2.0.28. ***

Chris you are really fast :)  (Everybody can read for the original discussion here

In addition to share your config file with the community, maybe we should agree some common info like:

  • A description of your setup (frame type, orientation, motors distance, motors.....)
  • a single line with the most relevant parameters (PIDS?) to allow a quick look on the data without ahving to  download, open the file and look for the data.

Yes I think a quick look will be very well, otherwiese you have to open eavry file

What is the newest version of APM firmware? 2.1.2 is available in google repository downloads, but I heard some people use 2.2.0. Why it isn't in downloads section or it's just some kind of misunderstanding?

What about a small textbox where we can add comments to the setings.

Pieter: sure, just include any explanatory text in your comment, with the config file, and I'll add it to the wiki.
Comment by I.S. on June 27, 2011 at 7:30am
I think he means another text box included in param file, but that's ok.
Comment by Jose Angel on June 27, 2011 at 8:35am
I suggest to include at least your frame type/orientation, motor to motor distance, motor model and any modification on default parameters, for example:

QuadX,50cm,KDA20-22L | YAW_OPTION=0, YAW_P=0.21 (non real values!)

I hope that everyone with an stable arducopter could contribute with his setup.
