I’m getting two 800 size gassers ready with pixhawk cube. One heli is running 4.0.3 and the other 4.0.5.
For the governor sensor i would like to use the stator gator. I went thru the docs of Chris Olson and changed the params accordingly. I am getting some reading in the rpm1 (aux5) but dont know how to trust that.
Heli-A: We had not yet connected the stator gator sensor to aux5, we had connected aux 5 to just to take power from aux5 to give it to rfd900 (with the signal wire removed and only + & - ve connected) . in this situation too (with sg not connected) we were getting a reading of around 10000 plus reading in rpm1. Our guess is we maybe getting some interference from rfd and that interference signal from rfd was what was showing some rpm (i’m guessing). We disconnected the aux5 (power to rfd) and the rpm dint show up.
Next we connected the stator gator sensor to aux5 and when flying the heli the rpm1 showed some 22000 plus rpm.
Heli-B: connected the stator gator to aux5 and the rpm1 showing around 10000 plus rpm.
The engine being used is a Zenoah 26cc puh engine and i think the max rpm of that engine is around 10000 rpm.
Now how do we trust that the aux5 is receiving the correct data (as it may be getting interference from rfd too)
I have not yet gone to the governor mode, i’m still flying in mode-3 (throttle curve mode)
How do i use the stator gator effectively with the pixhawk? Please help.
Thanks in advance.
