"Hi all, I was observing the plane in auto mode , and i notice it was giving a lot of power in each corner. So i turned down THR_SLEWRATE to 2. Corners are almost spot on now. Still having some issues with following the flight path.…"

"Thanks Antonie, I will try the autotune, I believe I did this when initially setting it up but haven't since updating firmware.  I completely understand how the trigger should work but for some reason it doesn't trigger very often.…"

"HI  Darryl Some suggestions : 1. You must do a proper auto tune on your bird - start here : http://ardupilot.org/plane/docs/automatic-tuning-with-autotune.html#what-autotune-does 2. Make sure your rudder control is in the right direction…"

"I recently updated firmware in my apm in my skywalker 1900 and also have tracking issues. It flies S curves along the flight lines in a mapping mission. I do 400 meter overshoot and 100 meter lead in, might as well give the plane as much time to get…"

"HI Bert, I agree with iskess. As mentioned before, the rudder control on my big bird was the wrong way in FBWA and auto and it caused similar issues. Check the rudder direction in FBWA. Make sure the rudder turns with the turn for flight and against…"

"I still believe the answer is in the rudder. Just try trimming a ton of rudder in next time you fly the grid and I bet it will slide back onto the line."

"I'd rather not set the camera on Auto, I'd set it to the minimum shutter speed you need to get images not affected by forward motion blur (which depends on the flight speed of your plane) and dial in aperture and ISO accordingly. I try to…"

Question,On mapping missions do you leave the camera on Auto , or do you set a specific shutter.I have an Sony A6000 with a 20mm lens , i did set the focus on endless but not sure if i should leave the camera on shutter priority or on auto.I am able to get the camera out of the plane but it's not as easy as 123 to change it every time.Thanks.See More

"I tried a 150M overshoot ( even 275meter ) and 70 ( 125) leadin. result of mapping are still the same (usable due to luck) , L1 is now on 11. Seems to be holding the grid (still to one side) but is unable to get the corners correct , i used a 3 line…"
