So the heli will now hover hands off in stabilize. So that's good...but I cannot get rid of this compass issue.
2 things I learned today:
-When I arm the safety switch, the variance freaks out. (to varying degree)
-When I, by hand, rotate the blades, (without the motor turning), the variance freaks out. (static?)
I can clearly see it changing as I move the servos around.
I've been putting it off, but I'll need to make that cat5 cable for the GPS unit.
I'll also try taking the drive belt off and see if I still get same level of variance without it.
This worked perfectly fine in my first setup, where the Pixhawk was mounted underneath the heli and the wiring was much more direct...but it isn't really that practical a place for it. (And I want to make it work in it's current position).
