I’ve been going thru the process of tuning my PID’s and I was wondering why, with all the sensors and telemetry feedback etc that we have not yet arrived at a situation where this tuning can be pretty much done automatically via the mission planner s/w? Granted you would want to manually set max/min roll/yaw rates etc.


They are just starting to experiment with Auto Tune code over on ArduCopter. (I am fixing to try it on my Quad.) Looks like it will be a great thing and maybe that concept can be transferred over to Plane.

Just as a follow up to my last post here, I have now used Auto Tune on my quad and it works excellent. Here’s to hoping it can be added to ArduPlane as well. It sure would make the platform more user friendly and help get more folks spending money and get them involved.
