Hello, I am preparing to mount a Cube flight controller on my quadplane (which was redesigned after a previous crash in the following post).
I notice from the following documentation that the flight controller should ideally be mounted within a few centimetres from the centre of gravity. However, due to mechanical limitations, there is a possibility that we might have to mount the Cube away from the plane’s centre of gravity.
I have three questions:
- Does mounting the flight controller away from the CG have an effect on the aircraft’s flight behaviour? And if it does, how is the behaviour affected?
- Is there any rule of thumb on how far the flight controller can be mounted away from the CG?
- Are there any parameters in ArduPlane that allow us to specify the linear offset of the flight controller from the CG (if needed)? I have previously tried to search but could not find such parameters
