hm, strange. In Acro Mode its to floppy and in stable mode, mine oscillates.

If i put the RC2 on it doesnt... But arent the PID values the same?

An does your GPS lock calm or does it move strange? I have a magnetometer and ublox gps.

Salut Patrice.


J'ai pas bcp plus d'expérience que toi en quad, mais j'ai bien l'intention de me monter une machine pilote auto et un bon kit fpv d'ici qq semaines. Le problème, c'est pas le code, pcq j'ai un chum qui est un pti genie en programmation, mais plutot savoir quoi et ou acheter .  Je suis pret à mettre l'argent qu'il faut , mais je veux pas acheter qq chose qui va etre désuet ou limité dans qq mois. Si tu as des conseils, ils seront bienvenus..

Tu pourra trouver mon num de tel: dans le bottin. rue alexandre. Tu peux m'appeler si tu veux, ca sera plus facile d'échanger.
