I have a Parkzone Icon A5 that I’ve outfitted with a PixHawk, and I have to admit it makes an awesome little drone platform.
One of the known issues with the PZ IA5 is excessive tail wag/oscillations at high speed and low prop RPM (very evident when coming in for a hot landing). I suspect it has to do with the wide body of the airframe disturbing laminar airflow over the tail when the prop isn’t pushing air over it. Anyway, I know others have fixed this by installing a tail gyro (like on heli’s) but I’m wondering if this could be solved with the APM:Plane?
I’ve noticed in FBW modes that roll and pitch seem to be stabilized, but I’ve never noticed the APM use the rudder to cancel out yaw movement. Is there a way to enable this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
