I need to check what is happen with my telemetry or log records, too slow rate to record data (see the distance between each point). Because that the trace on the corners looks as failed.

Autoland is impressive. Do you use sonar ? It will be great if you can share your param file.

Hi Keeyen!

Sure I can share my setup with you, send me you e-mail in PM ok?

No, I'm not using sonar, he perform the autoland based on his accelerometers only. It reach the ground perfect all the times!

Thanks @Marco!

(detail: I'm using in this Hexa the Mr. "Marco Robustini team" parameters)

It flies very(VERY) stable and an amazing xtrack control as I never had in other drone.

Looking good!

How do you get the "3D" flight path? Is that a different app from Mission Planner?

Distributor
Comment by Guto Santaella on July 5, 2013 at 5:09am

Hi @Euan,

Yes, using the Mission Planner, you can have it in the Tab "Telemetry Logs" on Flight Data screen, do it:

-press "Load Log" and choice your flight log

-press "Tlog> Kml or Graph" > "Create KML + GPX"

When it finish to run the progress bar go into the logs fold on your hard disk (inside Programs Files\APM Planner fold) and you will have a KML file, double click on it and your 3D path will be opened on Google Earth (need to have it in your computer)
