"Well, HERE WE ARE YET ANOTHER YEAR LATER...
I would also very much like to get some reliable information about how to best configure a 3-channel model like the regular Radian with an FC running APM, for instance.
C'mon... Someone, somewhere…"
Thanks for the feedback. Interesting obsevation that one tends to overestimate the actual airspeed. Shows that it is difficult to tell from the ground by eye-sight alone, I guess.
So, great -- now I have some realistic velocity values when…"
I remember reading somewhere (although not in this thread, I think) that you were planning to empirically find the Radian's glide polar. Have you come to any conclusions or informed opinion regarding the speed for the maximum…"
"@ Sam Tabor.
Nice solution with the plywood "deck" in the picture.
Just a thought: I made a similar arrangement for a homemade vario and Xbee tx in my Radian a couple of years ago. But while experimenting with IMU sensors in…"
