Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

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

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Hey
Ive loaded megapirateNG onto my crius aiop V1.1. 
I did a test flight abd the quad just flipped over forward. It seems that if I put a tiny amount of throttle on it revs high.
What do I need to do in mission planner?
I tried to calibrate the "Arducopter level" bit under configuration section but when I click on it it just says click when done. Command received. And doenst seem to do anything. See pic

Vidal

Also can someone tell me what the PI settings should be. Thanks

fruitsalad

escs calibrated ??.motors running right direction ?? props on correctly ??
im sure its hold rudder full left for 15seconds to calibrate the acc...
dont grow up,just buy bigger toys!!!!

Vidal

Yeah have done all that. Still flipping.

As other have said..

       
  • Double check motor mapping

  •    
  • Double check motor direction

  •    
  • Double check props

Post a pic or video .. always easy to get things wrong

The Rate P like in the picture below is normally the one that causes wobbles try dropping it a bit at a time   ~~

when i first cranked my quad up on 9x47 props my quad did the same
i dropped my  rate pid P down to 0.110  from default  0.115 and stabilse P pid to 4.0 from default 4.5 then started doing small increases on rate mode first  to fine tune in acro mode then sort out the stabilise setting

Think im starting to grt there with it. When changing pid it says do it in acro mode. How do I put it in acro mode?

firey1

under configuration tab you will see flight modes click on that and will show what modes you can set

my channel 5 is setup on my 3 way switch

here is the link to the wiki on description and setup

+1 what firey1 said set your tx up so a 3 way switch is on channel 5 and you can then set 3 of the modes up,
If you want to be able to select more you need to set other switches up with some mixes  ~~

Vidal

Cheers. Have done that now.
Just having problems making it fly stable now. Ive lowered the P and the D settings but it still keeps wobbling. Any ideas

Gaza07

Megapirate can be a real pain to tune in and get right this is why some people prefer Multi Wii its much easier and flies just as well  ~~
Looking at your screen capture you have lowered your rate P a lot try also lowering the Stab P a bit more to,
if you have a bit of a wobble when your copter is hit by wind or when it snaps back to level then try adding a little Rate D but only small amounts  ~~

Vidal

Thunk ill download multi wii and give that ago. Do I need to re download the multi wii arduio and mission planner or are they the same as Megapirate

Gaza07

You need to use a fresh copy of the Arduino app as multi wii doesnt use the megapirate libraries, when you download the multi wii firmware it has a gui with it or you can download the wingui from here  ~~
