Quote from: TheEdge on Saturday,July 05, 2014, 17:11:54 The stand for the gps broke off due to my frustration after the crash, so it is currently not mounted and I do not have a picture of the way it was mounted during that flight.But this picture show how it was mounted, except that I flipped the compass/gps unit sideways so that the gps is on top like it is supposed to be.
Quote from: TheEdge on Saturday,July 05, 2014, 17:11:54 If I lost 3d fix during loiter, would that explain the crash? I mean, would no 3dfix in loiter keep the qudcopter from rising when I apply full throttle?Chanel 7 is not unused I guess as the gear switch manipulates chanel 7
Quote from: HowDoIfly on Saturday,July 05, 2014, 17:30:53 Well, the GPS is upside so that sorts the low sat count /high HDOP problem. The antenna (which is on the other side) wants to be looking at the sky, not the controller chipbrb
Quote from: HowDoIfly on Saturday,July 05, 2014, 17:39:23 The intricacies of APM still mostly alude me. I do know that in GPS-reliant modes, the throttle has a deadband set around the middle and manual throttle input has to be made at the more extreme ends of TX stick travel. I haven';t examined the logs for attitude yet, I';m not too up on it but can give it a go.Channel 7 appears to be enabled throught the Hov Thro dial. The gear switch is right next to it, could it be that while flicking the switch you maybe brushed the dial at the same time? You can retest which is actuating Channel 7 if unsure.
Quote from: TheEdge on Saturday,July 05, 2014, 17:58:22 this side was pointing to the sky during the flight when it crashed, isn';t that right?I linked to the other picture because that showed the mount and placement on the quadcopter, but I just did not have a picture of it after I flipped the unit as I wrote. Sorry for the confusing picture.The dial was used with channel 6 tuning, but that was with the crius board. The gear switch changed values in chanel 7.I have disconnected the receiver since the crash, so I cannot verify.
Quote from: HowDoIfly on Saturday,July 05, 2014, 18:24:01 Yes, GPS as in second picture. So why low sat visibility.... Did it have horizon to horizon view (above everything)?
Quote from: TheEdge on Saturday,July 05, 2014, 18:40:48 Probably a difficult place for gps reception then, as also two other quads are low on gps count sometimes. When I was out there earlier today with the mobilephone, gps tester showed 24 sats in view and 7 in use..We have quite a bit of mountains here in western part of Norway.. You see the place in the video in the first post.
