Loiter Mode in Arduplane

Started this discussion. Last reply by Kenneth Pearson Jun 3. 2 Replies

I’ve set up a conventional fixed wing plane with Ardupilot on a miniPix. I have assigned only three modes, Manual, FBWA and Loiter. Testing on the ground Manual and FBWA work as expected but when I…Continue

I can’t get APM:Plane to work on a Crius AIO Pro board. I’m using the Mega Pirate NG flash tool, which provides only version 2.76. I have the RC input set to ‘Regular PWM on A8’ which is appropriate…Continue

Loiter Mode in Arduplane

I’ve set up a conventional fixed wing plane with Ardupilot on a miniPix. I have assigned only three modes, Manual, FBWA and Loiter. Testing on the ground Manual and FBWA work as expected but when I switch to Loiter the motor stops and the servos go hard over. It recovers if I switch back. I can see that it would be irrational to select Loiter if you were not in the air. My question is, can I have confidence that this will not happen when I fly it ?See More

Tower Android App

"Thank you Jean-Louis for all that useful information. Regarding your connection diagram of 9 December 2013, I assume that the jumper JP1 is in place so as to power the board from the ESC BEC. Can you confirm this?"

Problem with ArduPlane on Crius

I can’t get APM:Plane to work on a Crius AIO Pro board. I’m using the Mega Pirate NG flash tool, which provides only version 2.76. I have the RC input set to ‘Regular PWM on A8’ which is appropriate for my receiver. I can work through the calibrations in the setup wizard but when I get to Radio Calibration there are no red calibration lines and no response to stick movements. If I flash with APM:Copter-Quad everything works correctly, so the board and radio must be OK. I would appreciate any…See More

Problem with Verify Height

I set up a mission with ArduCopter V3.2.1 over a steeply sloping field with a constant height of 10 meters and Verify Height ticked. I checked that when I cleared the mission and reload it Verify Height was still ticked. But when I flew it the height remained at 10 meters above the arming point and did not follow the terrain. On reconnecting to Mission Planner I found that Verify Height was no longer ticked. I now see that if I close Mission Planner and then reopen it and reload the mission the…See More

APM 2.6 does not loiter on LOITER mode

I’ve built a couple of quads using Crius AIO Pro flight controllers with ArduCopter 3.0.1 R4 firmware and they work well. Now I’ve built one with an APM 2.6 clone and although it flies OK in STABILIZE mode it does not hold its position in LOITER. The firmware is ArduCopter 3.2.1 with default settings. The compass reads correctly. In a recent test it drifted about 75 meters in 3 minutes in a roughly straight line. I think the wind would have carried it further than that so I suppose it was…See More
