But it’s not to i taking to implement , I’m just share my think (is it right way to show battery “estimate” percentage) also suggested (can we do that or not)
And I’m not really knowledgeable guy to understand all things I’m like a begginer in this field soo my all things are sharing.
Afcource differents battery differents brands have differents voltage drop so we can’t measure with voltage.
But my meaning is when we start (no load = battery volts is stable [estimate , because there consume some current system also ESC and motor] ) there is no big voltage drop between when install or plugin battery. So calculate that time "Estimate percentage and continue with consume as a current draw. Is it possible ?
Many time (recently face compass problem then half flight to land and calibrate compass and replug the battery) is not possible to do that, i hope you understand what I’m talking about , and my english is poor , please forgive me when I’m something wrong.
That’s my think , is it right ???
PLEASE let me know when I’m wrong , then improve my things to think.
I understand what problem is there but I’m say “Estimate” = not 100%
“Estimate” = nearly ~
I think I don’t understand you people very well, maybe. I wanna give you example.
See when I plug in battery there is no more voltage drop (0.01) because I think no more components and also my battery have 50c raring Aldo 6000mah , when plug in battery then calculate voltage and also calculate percentage also “Estimate” mah and continue with consume current status.
I hope all are understands may be because I think I can’t explain you what I’m exactly say.
I’m simply telling you what you posted originally is wrong and you can’t estimate battery capacity used or remaining from battery pack voltage. There is no communication issue here. And not that I’m inclined to watch your video anyway but access is denied. But please don’t bother to correct that.
#1: As CyberPilot pointed out, this is not tough to implement. Use a LUT or polynomial mapping voltage to %. #2: If you don’t want to implement it for x/y/z reasons, don’t show the percent; show voltage, ideally per-cell. (Without clicking the battery icon; total voltage can be currently shown this way). Showing 100% is misleading, and not having a top-level indication of battery voltage or level is dangerous; it’s one of the most important things for a GCS, OSD etc to display.
