using 9000mAh LiPo I suddenly realize that the ampere consumption is reported way too high.
The Lipo is 6S with a 9000mAh capacity. The flight time is about 17 minutes. I have to recharge nearly 7400mAh to full charge the Lipo again. But in Mission Planner the " CurrTot" value is close to 15000mAh when I look into the log file. So MP is reporting two times the real amps consumption.
My other hexacopter reported correct values.
So I guess there is a switch or a divider in Mission Planner to get the real value?
(The power module is calibrated with MP)
Any hints or proceedure how I can fix this?
I hope it is not an update issue from ArduCopter v.3.5 …
Never mind.Wait for a dev to commen.But I have seen advice to flash to latest MP beta release.
Update to the latest version of Mission Planner and this problem is rectified.
Ok, thanks I’ll wait for some hints to solve this.
@ Matt: thank you for reading my question.
so I upgraded Mission Planner and also the Hexacopter firmware from v.3.3.3 to v.3.5
The strange issue persists. I still find the double mAh usage per flight.
The Lipo is 9000mAh, 6S from Tattuu
This is from my flight yesterday after upgrading everything
What more can I try or correct?
There is a voltage divider.Amperes per volt on the power module screen.Sounds like you need to halve your value.
Thanks, that solved the inaccurate used current display.
The video for the volt and amp calibration enlighted me for the fine tuning.
