How to make Tower count down battery usage in %

Started Mar 17, 2015 0 Replies

I just switched from Droidplanner 2 to Tower, and I noticed that, unlike Droidplanner 2, Tower does not count down battery usage in percentage (calling out every 10% like Droidplanner 2 used to do).…Continue

Pixhawk reading 0V

Hi, guys.  I know the 3DR Y6 is not as popular as it used to be, but I still need some help.  I recently dusted off my Y6 and started using it again.  I even installed a new Hero4 for 4K video with a new lens (to get rid of the fisheye effect)...The issue I have (well, one of them!) is that regardless if I connect through the MavLink or the USB cable directly to the Pixhawk, the pixhawk is reading 0.0V from the battery.  Now, the interesting thing is that BATTERY_VOLTAGE2 is reading correctly,…See More

"The part that I do not understand is that before (a couple of years back, when it was flying), it was OK in the vibrations (of course, MP now changed the way they are measured, so I am not sure that is not the reason).  I was thinking maybe…"

OK, a bit of background first.My 3DR Y6 had been sitting in the attic for a couple of years, so I dusted it off and got it back in the air.  I still need to tune it, but I flew it first in front of my house (just hovering), and then decided to take it to a field near by and do an auto mission.  I should point out that I reset everything, but the drone is flying OK (as I said, I still need to run Auto Tune).Anyway, last flight lasted a bit under 10 minutes, and I am checking everything now. …See More

"OK, did a test flight today.  Still not sure what is wrong, but the Y6 is flying very erratic.  If I even touch yaw, it starts oscilating, and since it keeps trying to turn left, you kind of HAVE to use yaw.  Trying to fly in…"
