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

Kinda noob question! Is the yaw on a quad more mushy than a tri/heli?

Hi All,
I';ve flown conventional helis for years and I suppose I';m used to the super positive yaw feeling they give.
My tricopters yaw pretty well too though not brick wall like a heli.

My question relates to my new TBS disco which has a relatively more mushy feel to the yaw, especially to the stops.
It';s certainly not a deal breaker or anything but I wonder if I can tune it to be better or is it just a matter of the torque only yaw system just being that way?

Not quite sure what "mushy" means,but  yeah there is huge different between   a tri and quad  yaw.
The yaw on a  tri is more responsive, more  accurate and faster:)

I always used to be of the opinion (long term heli and tri pilot too) that yaw on a quad could not touch it,but controllers are getting so good these days there';s not much in it.

If you want a  better yaw, get Open Pilot FC !
I';ve never seen any yaw like  this,  but  its  still  not like a tri';s

maddog7

It';s more than acceptable, I just wanted to know if I needed to tune something or if that';s how it is!

Yes, You can tune it. What FC do you fly?
I always tune  it, but it  will never  be like a tri :)
If you are using multiwii,in the pic  is  what you need to tune

Cheers RS!
I have an APM but presume it will tune the same way.
I';ve had a quick look on the toob to see if there';s anything showing a quad yawing well but alas I must be stoopid,
well I am stoopid. I have the mag enabled and presume this will affect how the yaw works too.
Cheers again man!

Just crank up the expo to get a little closer to a more responsive rudder.  I fly my KK with high expo, so small stick movement gives a lot of rudder on the fc.  As for hard stops whack up the gain.  whack is the official technical term.  At least you don';t get mad tail wag if you use high rudder gain like on a heli.

maddog7

Gav,
What a mint reply!
I';ll give it a shot, the APM is PID so i';ll need to see how to "whack" that!

Cheers fella!
