I’m having problems with severe throttle oscillations (amplitude is a significant percentage of available throttle travel, frequency less than 1s) when the ground speed falls to MIN_GNDSPD_CM due to headwind. I have performed autotune and TECS tuning steps as per the wiki.
Loiter is also poor in the wind conditions, looking like a curly single speech mark!
The plane flies great in all other circumstances.
The parameters are set to:
AIRSPD_FBW_MAX = 29m/s
MIN_GNDSPD_CM=700 (or 600)
Wind was 8-9m/s as reported by Arduplane.
I’ve tried slight variations on these, the effect is unchanged.
Setting air speed to a value that keeps ground speed just above the min ground speed, or throttle nudging both eliminate the oscillation but this shouldn’t be necessary.
I haven’t changed the default values of THR_SLEWRATE, TECS_THR_DAMP etc. Should I try these? I’m concerned it will mess up the performance in other conditions and this may be caused by something else.
Unfortunately I cannot post log files but can provide screenshots of graphs etc.
Has anyone else had this issue or know a solution?
