Ok, so what happens if you set SERVO_BLH_MASK = 0 and SERVO_BLH_OTYPE = 0?
Aren’t you also using a script for v-tail or something? This is working for everyone else, so pretty sure its something to do with your unusual setup.
Runcam protocol is 26 - I don’t see that anywhere in your setup
Yeah, looks like a script error. If motors matrix has not init it will never setup the motor outputs as Dshot. If you can post the script I will see if I can spot anything. The other possible issue is the assigning of motor outs, the scripting back-end will not auto assign motors to output functions 1-6 as the other back-ends will. You have to manually set the outputs 1-6 to motors 1-6.
Ok, just read your post more carefully. The script was only failing because you did not have frame class set to scripting in that test.
I suspect is just a matter of boot order. The script comes up after the auto blheli check is done. This is the check:
That will return 0 until the script has run. Not a huge amount we can do about that, we could re-init blheli after the script init. But I think on the whole it is not too painful to have to manually set the motor mask.
Not really. If your feeling keen you could have it work out and set the manual blheli mask, so that it would work correctly after a reboot. but that would be quite a bit of lua just save the manual setting of one param.
ArduCopter V4.1.0-beta4 (37070bfe) the first 30 secs I did have some shakes in stabilize then they went away, switching into GPS the same shake returned, "not seen this " overall stock tuning seems ok for this size mini beast. I play with the pids next. Tested ground effect control gave some hits to the Tarmac but was able to get some of the leaves off the driveway.
Sorry Andy I been using stock tuning for 5 years with a lot of builds. 90% of the time they fly prefect so no worries my friend. if i do have an issue i manually tune. My test air space is full of trees. However by all means Autotest is very cool and thank you guys for what you do mind blowing.
Is only 1 down facing rangefinder allowed? Say one lidar is good from 40m to 1m, and a second is good down to 0.1m (but maxes at 6m outdoors). Is it possible to set them up so it uses one then the other?
I found my jitter. I ended up turning down the PID " possibly more as i hear something after looking at the video " and added 45 degrees tubes. GPS stick control seems a little slow and BHL32 bit motor test is not working. however i was able edit the esc settings. Beta-4 is feeling good.
That got me thinking, I just received a few Thoneflow 3901uy optical flow sensors, and they are quite small. I’m a little worried about a piece of grass or dirt sticking to the lens and losing the sensor data. Is it possible to use 2 optical flow sensors, 1 per lane ekf3? I see the current setup is 1 lane per imu, but what about 2 copies of each imu and alternate the optical flow sensor? So if you have 2 imus, there would be 4 ekf lanes (or x number of lanes per IMU) Sounds like a lot of work to code tho. The sensors are inexpensive and it would be nice to add a backup for reliability
