UTC1100 - Compass: per instance params take 2 by IamPete1 · Pull Request #19490 · ArduPilot/ardupilot · GitHub
- Compass per instance params (again)
- Do we have an issue when users go from 4.3 back to a 4.2?
- Compass priority params might be OK
- Sort by priority IDs…
- Maybe should move all compass parameters up to AP_Vehicle?
- CubeBlack, 3 compasses, 16kB of storage
- Short on space?
- Need to check space before/after, so what the parameter conversion cost is
- 200 to 250 bytes to do the conversion?
- Need a plan if we run people out of storage
- Moving as part of this change makes sense otherwise we’ll definitely cost ourselves vast amounts of storage!
- General storage solutions?
- Reduce waypoints, add more param storage space?
- upgrade/downgrade issues….
- Storing in extra space then shrunk it again?
UTC1124 - Copter: improve shaping of rate controlled axes by bnsgeyer · Pull Request #20307 · ArduPilot/ardupilot · GitHub
- Improve shaping of rate-controlled axes in Copter
- Also in Plane and Sub
- 9:25 AM Peter Hall: The set calls are way better than having it on every input call.
- Maybe move them into the attitude control library?
- So they become Q_A_ parameters
- Multiple instantiations of a new class, one for pilot one for acro?
- Problem with incremental approach is that more and more parameter conversion enters the code
- If moving pilot params we should take the advantage of the opportunity to move to SI units.
- Prevents getting bad AHRS trim with Q_TRIM_PITCH set, gives warning rather than silently getting a bad trim
- More useful warnings about GPIO and servo output pin conflicts.
- Resolving some pain points following the removal of BRD_PWM_COUNT
Large gap where Peter didn’t have connectivity
UTC0028 - AP_Scripting: support true aliases by IamPete1 · Pull Request #20612 · ArduPilot/ardupilot · GitHub
- Proper AP_Scripting aliases
- Rather than the renames we did have
UTC0028 - Relay log by Hwurzburg · Pull Request #20616 · ArduPilot/ardupilot · GitHub
- Add logging for relays
- Excludes activation when SIM_ON_HARDWARE
- Flooding protection good?
- Drop to 10ms rather than 100ms
UTC0038 - Plane: stable 4.2.0 issues list · Issue #15941 · ArduPilot/ardupilot · GitHub
- Plane stable
- Beta6 coming…
- uBlox 1.3 firmware still needs help
- Probably 4.2.1
- Need to get stuff out there!
UTC0041 - Copter/Rover: 4.2.0 issues list · Issue #20192 · ArduPilot/ardupilot · GitHub
- Copter update
- ModalAI Voxel problem
- Voxel system itself reporting it is upside down?
- Tridge doesn’t have one of these any more
- AP_Button internal error / ISR flood
- Floating pin?
- Don’t attach interrupts to floating pins….
- Bidirectional buffer might be screwing things up?
- Buffer has to guess which one you’re doing, input or output
- Vision position estimates from internal origin rather than the global origin
- Pushes into buffer with public origin, pulls from buffer and then corrects it
- This all looks right, but Randy willtest in SITL
- Vibration failsafe triggering in acro much more easily than it did in RC3
- Beta3 worked great, rc1 not so much
- The z-bias fix is being pointed at
- Somehow relying on the bug to avoid the vibration failsafe
- Maybe we need some way to disable the vibration compensation?
- Don’t trigger vibration compensation if you’re in Acro mode?
- So only trigger if it will matter to the current flight mode?
- “Is the vertical position controller running?”
- Assumption about what the vehicle’s doing in Acro
- Low vibration impossible in a high performance vehicle?
- Not just acro, but also stab with high throttle
- Vibration compensation will trigger on normal flight on vehicle
- High rotation rates will do it
- roll/pitch rates mean you won’t see these effects
- Will disable in acro
- Should it be disabled in stab?
- Not for now?
- Arguments against is that if you’re disturbed
- Don’t turn on if they’re demanding huge rates?
- Need less talent to throw things around in stabilize…
- Slow MP parameter download
- Michael’s found the issue
UTC0122 - Add PARAMETER CONVERSION comments by peterbarker · Pull Request #20623 · ArduPilot/ardupilot · GitHub
- Can be merged on pass
- Adds parameter conversion dates
