Very Good Craig.Thanx a lot Got a question though.What's the difference in MegaPirateNG 2.9.1 and Arducopter 2.9.1 ?
Arducopter is for genuine APM board and clones such as APM 2.5 and Arduflyer 2.5 (2.9.1 has been released)MegaPirate is for boards such as Crius AIOP and Blackvortex etc (2.9 is in beta)
I have a Crius AIOPro V1.1, so I will have to wait for the 2.9 version......... Any idea when it's coming?
I take it there is little point in tuning until the props have been properly balanced?
Tips"My copter slowly rises or descends when I enable Alt-Hold or Loiter" .The throttle deadband when in alt-hold or loiter mode is from 40% ~ 60% of the throttle. If you have an overpowered or underpowered copter then when in stabilize mode the throttle required to maintain a hover may be outside this range. So when you engage alt-hold or loiter your throttle is outside of the deadband and arducopter thinks you want to climb or descend. The simple solution is to move your throttle back to center as you engage alt-hold. A permanent solution is to modify the THR_MID parameter through the mission planner's Adv Parameter List screen. If your copter hover at 40% of throttle stick when in stabilize mode, make THR_MID = 400. If it hovers at 60% of throttle make the parameter 600, etc.
