Just to reconfirm about the support.
This a a direct quote form a respected member here, that has developed his own fork. He has shared for free in his past, so it cannot be any thing malicious. He is saying that the options to configure quad tilt is there, but that i will NOT work in real life. This is what he wrote after I told him that you confirmed that it is working. Do you Tridge infact know of anyone that has used the official firmware with such setup? I really have no way of testing it without risking a crash. We have not toys to test it on.
Currently, only Y3/Y6 support only partially.
The other Quad Tiltrotor is definitely not supported.
I can tell you with certainty that the official does not support it.
You can try to follow what was posted on the official site
If you have a tilt-quadplane where all 4 motors tilt, then you should set Q_TILT_MASK to 15, which is 8+4+2+1.
If you have a tilt-quadplane where front 2 motors tilt, then you should set Q_TILT_MASK to 5, which is 4+1.
I can tell you with certainty that it will crash.
If you’d like to verify what I said, I hope you used a cheaper plane.
Can you help clear this up?
Here is what I replied:
should be: tilt-quadplane where front 2 motors tilt 1+3 =4. Or for all 4 tilting is 1+2+3+4 =10. (NOT 5 or 15 a he wrote) for tilt mask.
Then he replied this:
Motor 1 and motor3 the bitmask is 5
0x000000101 = 5
not 1+3=4 ， it‘t bit mask
[14:26, 5/28/2018] Wayne Taiwan: motor1&2&3&4 is 15,not 10
[14:26, 5/28/2018] Wayne Taiwan: It’s binary not decimal
[14:26, 5/28/2018] Wayne Taiwan: so
the Y3 tiltrotor q_tilt_mask is 3.(dec)
Binary 0000 0011 =3
So what is true and what is not? Anyone is free to chip in.
The truth of the matter is that I am yet to find any quad-tilt (just front motor or all for tilting) that is claimed to run of official arduplane. All I see are tricopeters. This is even true for this topic.
The only one guy that I know of that did build such (and tried it last year November) had the ESC/Motor fail on his first transition attempt, so no experience from there.
