Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Crius MultiWii SE - Quad Initial Setup Guidelines

Started by bunnygirl80, Tuesday,January 22, 2013, 22:20:52

Hi,

I';ve recently ordered a new Crius AIOP FC thinking that my existing Crius MultiWii SE FC wasn';t good enough! But, today I watch a couple of videos on YouTube and see quads with the Crius MW SE successfully Position Holding PH within a meter or two and also working successfully with Return to Home RTH and Altitude Hold within 2 meters. This isn';t too bad and a lot better than what I';m getting!

My quad has only been out three times and flies okay whilst under my control, but as soon as I let go of the sticks it drifts to the right and forwards. The last time I took it out, it was purely to try and sort out the auto level and position hold. I';ve tried landing, disarming, throttle top and opposite control, but it doesn';t seem to help and seems to change each time I take off.

My question is... "Is there a guide or guidelines on how to setup the quad for good level without drifting?". I read about doing ACRO mode first, then LEVEL, etc. But, nothing concrete. I think the Acro Mode is when all options are turned off and I did this with the trims of the TX, then i switched to Level Mode and landed and did the stick thing I explained above. It seems a little better, but seems to lose the settings each time I land and change batteries! I think!

Also, is there anything else which I need to setup?

Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Stef

Hi Stef do you balance your props they can cause drifting if out of balance  ~~
they all kind of drift a bit and temperature can affect the esc';s

I haven';t balanced the props, I will certainly do that! Let';s get the nail varnish out!  ::) Do you do this the same as I do for my planes? with a prop balancer? I read somewhere about removing two adjacent props and putting them on power to see how much vibration and add tape to the prop to test.

Do you think the Quattro AIO ESC will still be affected by temperature?

It seems to drift a lot a lot more than props and ESC would account for! I think! Also in Position Hold it just doesn';t hold and drifts and never hovers and hold.

I use the same balancer I use for my planes. I';ve always sanded material off the back side of the heavy blade but whatever works and stays on should be fine. I know it isn';t as good as some of the balancing methods but I feel it is much better than what they started out like. The cheap props I received from RCTimer were very much out of balance.

Erm... not exactly. But I lie your thinking!

Hi guys, well, many many thanks for the advice. I balanced all the props today and wow what a difference. I hovered a meter from the floor in the living room with virtually no hands on the sticks and wow sooo nice! I am well happy! Very very little drifting. The props were from rctimer and they were way off and needed loads of balancing! I should have filmed it all! Oh! Well, at least I don';t have to dust and hoover this weekend! Ha!

Okay, next thing is sorting out the GPS and SONAR, but I';m not sure if these can both be connected in series on the Crius SE! Ideally I want to use both at the same time. I have a HC-SR04 which is not supported in the MW firmware, but I';m on the case and already have it working on my development board. So, going to start looking at changing the MW code over the next few days. ;o) Stef
