Copter-3.4.3 changed some things for me.
When i arm my hex, the motors begin spinning.
No problem for because i set this to "0"
More serious is the fact that my throttle only needs to be at about 30% to get my hex hovering.
This was set in V 3.3.3 at 50%
Missing the throttle mid setting in Missionplanner?
Went back today to V3.3.3 and everthing was like before…
If that’s not a typo and you’re really coming from the 3.3 release, a lot has changed with the development of 3.4… Thr_Mid is totally different now. There are plenty of threads here about it if you search. You should look in to all the differences that have been made since 3.3.3!! There are a lot of them! It will certainly behave differently, and need to be configured differently in the 3.4 release, compared to 3.3.
For your specific question about hovering, there’s an active thread in the 3.4 section at the moment (should be one of the first things you see when you look at the 3.4 section), “Setting Mid throttle in 3.4. Where is the Mid Throttle Parameter?”
(And basically I’d bet you need to enable the hover learn parameters. And that would indicate you didn’t start over from scratch when you loaded 3.4… And I’d recommend starting over from scratch and re-configuring the copter… A lot changed, and it would be good to start from all the most recent default parameters)
I’ll create a coax firmware tomorrow based on AC3.4.3 or AC3.4.4-rc1 (which is about to go out).
You’re using a Pixhawk (or compatible) or a Pixracer probably?
By the way, I hope we can create the single & coax firmware by default for AC3.5 - the issue is just that we have a lot of boards and a lot of different firmwares so our build server takes a really long time which means it takes a long time for our automatic checks of various developers code is slow. We have some changes to improve performance though which should allow us to add the single + coax builds.
Thanks for responding and that is great to hear! I am using Holybros Pixhawk (takes V2 firmware), but I am also trying to use a 3DR Pixhawk Mini (Also V2). However, after uploading this firmware (That works on the holybro pixhawk) to the mini the Main LED stays a solid whitish/pinkish color and throws an error Check BRD_TYPE: no I3gd20 found in Qgc. If you could advise and provide the updated firmware build that would be awesome.
PS: I see it has been some time since progress was made on the coax frame so if you need/want any feedback on the current build (I am using the last posted build that was on the Coax Support Topic page) let me know.
