3d printing a Avatar style Bi-Copter that uses 2 tilting rotors mounted left right. Lots of time with Ardupilot on Quads, but this is a new frame style for me.
This One: https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/game/rc-avatar-scorpion
I could use my Omnibus Flip 32-F4 V3 with Beta flight as suggested, or one of my PixRacers.
What Ardupilot code do I use for this if I go Ardupilot? Plane or Copter?
I don’t dee a Bi-Copter option in Mission Planner Copter setup, but guessing this is a Plane (Tiltrotor) frame?
I have seen a few posts re Bi-Copters but most of them seem to be more of the fore/aft motors, or a 90 degree tilt motor setup on a plane like an Osprey.
I would love to go with Ardupilot and use the Omnibus as I have a spare and have used it on a Quad with no problems.
Any suggestions from anyone on settings for either FC?
you can use copter, frame class = 10. Use the tilt left, tilt right, throttle left and throttle right servo outputs
THANKS Peter! What took you so long to get back !!!
You folks are great, this ought to be fun to try.
Did that fly? Other attempts I have seen for a craft like this (V-22 like but no cyclic/swash) were unstable in pitch.
It did. currently have on bench to swap out FC to a pixracer. It does take a lot of tuning to get to fly , but I hope pixracer will improve. Need to make sure all links are zero slop! I went with ball links.
Hello Joe ! I try to do the same bicopter with the parts recommended by the creator but It simply doesn’t want to cooperate.
When I throttle the motors it makes the servos move wierd and after I arm the bicopter and I want to throttle it self accelerates to it’s maximum power.
Can you guide me to solve this problem please?
Did you ever get a solution to this please? Sounds like I’m getting the exact same issue!
