Also as requested I was asked to tell the version of the firmware that works ok. version arducopter.apj Tue Feb 23 00:37:36 2021 808206
Noticed that there seems to be a difference in size of the two version stable and beta , That could be error checking,
Part of what i like to is to print custom frames then build and finally test like the location one last year.
here is video of my testing last year: this is the mRo v2.1 with the location one GPS basically stock tuning this is the bar of performance i used to using AP and MP.
My second issue is the ground effect in copter is no more or not turned on, instead of gliding on the surface, beta seem to drive down like it has a mind of it own. flying on the surface is a great way to get the craft acclimated and happy and fun! especially if your on a cliff and have step downs and 30 degree grades. I like to see this effect return to copter.
Ctrl>F Menu in Mission Planner. Then the “Anon Log” button. A file open dialog box opens, you pick the file and save it as a .log file. Not everyone is happy with a .log file but it works in Mission Planner for analysis.
Logs will be good to see but re the upward facing frame, from the sound of the motors it seems the roll and pitch rate gains are too high.
Try reducing ATC_RAT_RLL_P/I/D and ATC_RAT_PIT_P/I/D all down by 20%. Also I think if you’re not going to try and use AutoTune it is good to keep the ratio of P/I and D the same. So just raise or lower all of them by the same percentage.
One small change I see between the 4.0.7 logs and the 4.1.0-beta7 logs is that MOT_PWM_TYPE has been changed from 7 (DShot1200) to 5 (DShot 300).
Another unusual configuration is that the AHRS_ORIENT = 24 (Pitch up).
@quadsours I was wondering if you could try switching back to EKF2 to see if it makes any difference?
AHRS_EKF_TYPE = 2
EK2_ENABLE = 1
EK3_ENABLE = 0
… and then reboot the autopilot. This would help cut the problem in half because we could be more sure whether it is an estimation problem or a control problem (I suspect it is a control problem but both have changed greatly in Copter-4.1 vs 4.0).
Hi Randy, Regarding the Dhsot speed that was at the end of my test cycle i started with 300 then 600 then 1200. none of the speeds had an effect as to my issue. I will return it to 300… I also like to say shaky issue was also on the PRP,
