Agressiveness of turns in auto mode


I’m using fc Matek H743-Wing with Arduplane 4.1. My plane is a Binary from Sonic Modell. This is a small foamy plane with wingspan about 1200mm (47.24").

According to documentation, parameter NAVL1_PERIOD “is the primary control for agressiveness of turns in auto mode.”. I decreased this parameter several times from 20 to 8 and my turn in auto mode is still very large/long (maybe about 100 meters for a 180 degree turn). I also set parameter LIM_ROLL_CD to 5700 (57 degres).

I would like that the plane do more aggressive turn in auto mode.

Did I miss something?

P.S.: I’m attaching my parameters file if it could help

Thanks in advance.

The PIDs are most likely too low, (I am on vacation and can’t check your log, but try autotune.

Ok I will redo autotune with a higher level (level 8) to see if it helps.


It’s not necessary higher aggressiness that is needed.
Just do more left-right turns, ultimately, the loged roll rate should correspond to the settings.
