Quote from: Hands0n on Tuesday,May 06, 2014, 07:56:33 Have you covered the Barometer chip with a piece of light blocking open cell foam (typically a dark grey). Baros do not like light or propwash and need to be shielded from both. Next I';d say you may want to tweak Loiter P upwards - if you can put it on a rotary pot on your TX so you can trim it in flight it will be quicker than landing, changing, testing. Once you find the right stability keep the pot where it is, land, pop it on Mission Planner and read the value - then save that value and disable the pot (in MP) so it doesn';t corrupt your setting.I';d look at those two first.
Quote from: Hands0n on Wednesday,June 11, 2014, 21:29:01 Hello TheEdge - I really cannot help you with AIOP and MegapirateNG other than to say that people on this forum have got on very well with MegaPirateNG Add Ons which is at an older version than you are running but seems very stable. The later versions of MPNG seem to have pushed the hardware to or beyond its capabilities. By going to APM 2.6 I do think that you will have a totally different experience, and a much better one at that. You already know a whole lot about Arducopter software and Mission Planner so you';re well ahead of the game. And you';ll be running the Arducopter code on the hardware it was originally designed for. So that has got to be a big plus also.In respect to finding out what is actually going on in your MPNG set up - do you have any flight logs that you can post up for someone to have a look at? The configuration parameters may offer a clue, but the real information is contained in the flight logs - but I don';t know if MPNG on AIOP can do this.
Quote from: BadgerG on Wednesday,June 18, 2014, 17:21:53 Edge, I went back to MP 2.91 R300 and the stuttering is gone and Alt hold works great again. In Mission Planner the baro is jittering a lot less than it was with MP 3.01 R4. To me it seems that 3.01 is less stable with how it work with the baro, considering I was seeing the values change, sometimes up to .15 difference between values. With MP 2.91 R300 the difference is more like .03 difference. Major improvment.
Quote from: Paulham on Wednesday,June 18, 2014, 18:21:58 I just fixed my altitude hold problem on the newest firmware. I had mounted my APM using double sides foam tape but alt hold was all over the place. I just changed it to a dampening ball mount and alt hold is now rock solid.I believe this is because the newer firmware (3onwards) is much more sensitive to vibration and magnetic interference Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
Quote from: TheEdge on Thursday,June 19, 2014, 08:33:53 I guess the apm is not a genuine 3dr for the price of the kit, but some of the clones should also work I guess..??
Quote from: Hands0n on Thursday,June 19, 2014, 08:59:12 The APM hardware is open sourced so there is no legal impediment to anyone manufacturing a an APM board. Quality can vary between manufacturers but generally they all seem to work really well. Some are more faithful to the 3DR design intention than others. For example, RCTimer APM boards do not have PPEncoder bootloaders so you cannot at all easily update the PPMEncoder firmware as described in the Ardupcopter wiki. I found that out the hard way, so avoid RCTimer APMs these days. Other cheap as chips APM boards do everything the 3DR native boards do So thats okay If you get a duff one it is not going to be anything other than bad luck. That said, of the several I';ve bought on eBay over the past 12 months I';ve had 100% success so far.
Quote from: Oakie on Thursday,June 19, 2014, 10:19:12 Hi, does the aio use i2c from gps to fc?
Quote from: TheEdge on Thursday,June 19, 2014, 10:20:11 Yes, I am crossing my fingers I got a good one. At least the propellers that came with the kit is perfectly balanced and sturdy gemfan props, I expected some cheap crap since no brand was specified.
Quote from: Hands0n on Thursday,June 19, 2014, 13:20:51 I do think that once you go APM you won';t look back The hardware is so affordable now. And with the miniAPM even more so!
Quote from: HowDoIfly on Saturday,June 21, 2014, 01:38:37 Is yours mounted like the one on this hex?http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showpost.php?p=28373211&postcount=798
Quote from: HowDoIfly on Saturday,June 21, 2014, 08:22:06 I don';t want to assume what you mean by backwards but the heading in MP will rotate the opposite direction your compass moves.
Quote from: TheEdge on Saturday,June 21, 2014, 08:54:41 When I rotate the quadcopter clockwise around the y-axis, the simulated quadcopter in the mapview of mission planner rotates counterclockwise around the y-axis. Is that normal???My criusboard with the internal compass never did that, rotation showed up the same direction as the actual quad rotated.
