  • What does this mean its in my log file when I try to use new hybrid mode.
  • #2 by HowDoIfly on 28 Apr 2014
  • I don't know the relevance (hybrid is still beta isn't it?) but EV 16 = TakeOff
  • #3 by mrorange26 on 28 Apr 2014
  • Hybrid is in the latest mission planner now.I downloaded it at the weekend.
  • #4 by HowDoIfly on 28 Apr 2014
  • I found this "The plot thickens…

    I was using APM Planner on a Mac - maybe that's why HYBRID showed up?

    Also - looking at this - LINK - there's some modification of the code need to get working properly.

    This would explain my Err: FLIGHT_MODE-16. There's nothing assigned to 16 - it should be changed to 12.

    Still not trying it again until someone else does

    "If it helps anyone i answered my own question above. I cloned apm_planner and changed src/uas/ArduPilotMegaMAV.h HYBRID_LOITER = 16 to HYBRID_LOITER = 12. Seems to have done the trick and i can now switch to Hybrid. Yet to fly it." "

  • Ok are leave it for now until they sort the code.

  • I think it'll be stable release in 3.2 as it appears all but done and testing reports (flying-wise) are very favourable.

  • Isn't Hybrid rather like MultiWii's Horizon mode. So when the sticks are near centre its very stable flight, but with extreme stick movement its more Acro-like.

  • Hybrid is a loiter with normal flying ability - don't think is available in stable realise through.

  • It wasn't a beta I downloaded just the update that came out when I started up mission planner at the weekend.

  • Thanks Raf, I watched that video, my Italian didn't improve but my grasp of what Hybrid mode is is now rock solid ::) Looks a dead useful mode for FPV work. One less thing to have to do while concentrating on the subject matter. I hope it makes it into a near future release of the code base.

    No, I meant because I haven't seen such an update and because of the quote above, I just assumed hybrid mode itself was still in beta (and maybe the release to Mac users was an oversight).

  • There will be an update in MP to fix anything incorrect for Hybrid mode.  The devs seem to get MP covered very quickly. 

    It isn't in the Arducopter code version 3.1.1 is it?????
  • #13 by Raf on 29 Apr 2014
  • I just tested Hybrid. Loaded latest firmware 3.1.3 and latest Mission Planner 1.3.1 and it doesn't seem to work. No difference to Loiter and it does appear as Loiter on HUD. Maybe HowDoIfly solution will work:

    I cloned apm_planner and changed src/uas/ArduPilotMegaMAV.h HYBRID_LOITER = 16 to HYBRID_LOITER = 12. Seems to have done the trick and i can now switch to Hybrid. Yet to fly it.

    I don't know. Although I loaded 3.1.3 I've yet to fully calibrate it, let alone configure the options so didn't even know Hybrid was an option (though it's yet to be added to http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/flight-modes/

  • So is 3.1.3 stable now out on general release?  I don't use the non-stable code.  Won't get a look in until Weds ...

    Apparently so.
  • #17 by Hands0n on 29 Apr 2014
  • Oh wow! It must have come out only in the last few days.  It was only last week that I updated to 3.1.2.

    Yes 3.1.3 is the latest stable firmware

  • Yes 3.1.3 is the latest stable firmware

    Cool - thanks - will update at supid o'clock tonight when I get home from being out, out. ::)
  • #20 by Hands0n on 04 May 2014
  • Continuing ...

    Mission Planner just updated to 1.3.1.  Arducopter was already at 3.1.3. Although setting Hybrid as one of the available flight modes in MP when invoking it via the TX nothing registers in MP.

    Evidently not a valid flight mode to set, it seems a bit bizarre/dangerous (maybe) to have it settable

    Has anyone actually tried flying with it in 1.3.1 - I'm wondering what the APM does. Perhaps it simply stays in Stabilize mode?

    Scary - I'm setting it back to something else. ::)
  • #21 by HowDoIfly on 04 May 2014
  • This hybrid mode was scheduled to be the 3.2 release which is why I'm confused it's showing in 3.1.3 but the fact it does not activate for you is indicative it's not ready yet.

    ETA: I would assume it stays in the flight mode you switched from. It should be easy to check in-flight  :whistling:

    It stays in Loiter

  • It stays in Loiter

    Well that s good to know. I am totally used to iterative development but it is unusual to me to see menu items arrive before the functional code itself. No harm done though ::)
