I am building a 2.5m synchrocopter powered by a DA150L and am having trouble finding documentation on how to setup the AP_ICEngine to control the engine and setup a throttle servo. Could someone please point me in the right direction or give me a walk-through.
What features of AP_ICEngine will you be using? Do you have an auto-start system installed? Choke? Ignition cut?
looking at the AP_ICEngine parameters it looks like i would need most if not all of them. Starter is an electric motor with an ESC. Not a 100% sure what the height param is for, guessing in flight restart. I would need choke also. If I’m understanding the AP_ICEngine code correctly it would go something like this,
start on with throttle to start pct
once engine reaches rpm threshold
and to cut engine ignition off
for throttle I would like to be able to have idle, governed speed (adjust able with pot on transmitter)
