Just returned from a few testing flights with RC8 installed on my Solo.
RTH, RTM, Smartshots (with the modified python files from @Pedals2Paddles), LED and tones, dataflash logging, battery monitoring,…
Very pleased- All good!
I hadn’t flown my tricopter since 3.3, so i am a bit behind. I reconfigured everything from scratch, did autotune 2 times to get a nice tune (i always do that and i feel like the first tune gets it close, but the second tune ontop of the first gets it all the way).
I think the new release will be amazing, and i love the new position hold autotune, makes life sooo much easier. It’s pretty cool to watch it turn into the wind and in the yaw part of the tune do a little circle maneuver
Thanks to all the guys that make this firmware possible, sorry you guys had such troubles last year.
Thank you Randy <3
Thank you Leonard Hall <3 (i think you did the tricopter specific improvements, sorry i didn’t test until now)
Myself and several others have loaded plain old RC8 onto our green cube equipped solos. No custom build, no baked in defaults from ROMFS. Just 3.5-RC8, and load the required parameters. It’s flying great!
I am still having same seg fault on different Erle brain3 consistantly The 3.6 dev version would have the same issue too. Tried running with gdb(no issue), running with --debug version (no core dump file generated), so I am not moving forward… Hopefully this problem could be resolved soon.
Strange. Can you post the dataflash log to be looked at here. Also, your post says RC7, but we’re on RC8 now. @rmackay9, this looks troubling, but never seen anyone else have this happen before either. What would cause the home location to change multiple times in flight?
