It is not following a mission path very well. Sometimes, it goes in the right direction and takes a wavy path to the way-point. I changed the NAVL1_ period to smooth out the path. Other times, it just loses it mind and runs way off course and into the dock - ugh.
Mission Planner 1.3.41
APM 2.5 with External Compass
The boat is 6.5 feet long, powered by a trolling motor, and gear motor with JRK controller
Running Mission Planner on a Dell tablet that is installed in the drone that is directly connected to the APM unit.
I set up long range WIFI on the drone and can access it using a remote desktop. This part works beautifully.
Back to troubleshooting.....
Have gone through radio calibration, accelerometer calibration and testing - manual mode working fine.
Worked through the documentation and corrected power issues, servo issues, communication issues.
Below are my settings:
STEER2SRV_P = 1.8
TURN_MAX_G = 1.5
NAVL1_PERIOD = 22 (started at 18 and incremented to smooth out the wavy path)
SPEED_TURN_GAIN = 100
CRUISE_SPEED = 3
CRUISE_THROTTLE = 40
WP_Radius = 3.03
Logs are attached and I could really use a fresh set of eyes to see if I am missing anything.
