Do you have suggestion how to calibrate current for the power module? When I add throttle to add current flow for the measurement, copter thinks I want to fly and adjusts throttle by itself. That…Continue
Tested new autotune feature, yaw tuning. Got little weird results. After tuning finished, quad flied nicely, I landed and disarmed. Then tried to fly again, I was lucky to get thing down without…Continue
"Yes, I have flipped the props. But I was not able to add throttle.
However I managed to circumvent throttle problem by setting mot_spin_armed to 200. That gave me constant throttle after arming to calibrate the current monitor."
"Watch again. At about 3:37 Randy mentions that he has flipped the props over and moved each one- one arm. This will make the machine push down to the floor. I usually put a piece of tape on the landing gear just to keep things from sliding…"
Do you have suggestion how to calibrate current for the power module? When I add throttle to add current flow for the measurement, copter thinks I want to fly and adjusts throttle by itself. That makes it impossible to get valid current reading for calibration. How to keep throttle stable?See More
"Thank you for seeing all that trouble for me. At least board powered up and connected to Mission Planner. Seems to work.
I can't test the board too well at the moment, copter is going to have some changes.."
"Not as clean as yours after rubbing with iron but I don't see them touching. Still, immeadiate beep when testing for contact.. :| So they should not give any sign of contact with the bridged pad? Their bottom pads do also seem to be in contact…"
"I did this mod too, but I have not yet powered the board. I have a noob question, are those two big capacitors(?) on top of the solder bridge supposed to be in contact with the bridged pad? (because mine are :) )
Just to be sure do I have a short or…"
"Not really well. It tilted hard when motor failed. Of course I was kind of expecting the failure so I was flying really low. Couldn't land it on it's feet, always fell. I think if the hex was higher, it would have been possible to take…"
"Well, that was pretty accurate analyzis. Got the problem again, but this time better pids and no gimbal, I was able to control the thing and saw clearly that motor 5 was the problem, it almost stopped. Any idea what could cause motor malfunction?…"
"May I ask how did you eventually figure it out? Motors twitched or stopped? I have not noticed any of that. Were you able to solve that using logs somehow? Was the problem random or repeatable?
I don't get it as it flies nicely on the second…"
"I have had now three times roll over / crash problem with the copter. Every time I go to test it, on the first attempt it will crash. I did complete reset for it, but didn't change the behavior. What could cause this? Any ideas? Obviously not…"
