Although i have no intention of trying altitude hold or any of the other GPS enabled modes for awhile, it still helps to adjust for any errors continously until im ready to try.
Ive read the traditional heli setup page many many times, and it definatly does not cover many of the things pertinent to the setup of a traditional helicopter with Pixhawk.
Also, alot of the parameter names have seemingly changed and that causes even more confusion.
When you dont know exactly what your looking for and why, you are forced to use the search function as in my case and being even one character off in the name of a patameter means you wont find it. Point in hand, the parameter Bill helped me track down to reverse the tail servo/gyro.
As ive said before, i genuinely appreciate all the help for everyone and fingers are crossed for no mishaps on the first flight, although i will be employing some of your ideas for mitigating disaster. Ergo, the 2x6 and some concrete blocks followed by training gear.
It pains me to say this, but ive never been so un-confident in a maiden.
