In the next video I show the Elevon issue in QHover forward flight.
I know, its not the target of a VTOL, but the same situation happend while landing with the same windspeed. And during hovering on spot without wind, the Elevons work crazy. Good to stabilize a Tailsitter.
This is the situation in Test 48, line line 270 of the log.
It looks fine to me. The steering vector plot is the equivalent of stick position? To me it looks like you pull back the stick and the elevators go up as we would expect. There is no way the elevators can be reversed in Q modes and not forward flight. What you could be seeing is the vehicle exceeding its desired angle and having to fight to get it down.
I show it in my first pic with large green text-fleshes. Elevons up 10°/15°, nose pitch down 5°
Elevons push back down, Mots pitch the nose down.
Or even more in the last pic while landing
Not opposite ?
For me I can live with this for a flying wing, but may be it has more bad influence with standard
airplane with long fuselage.
The design of the steering vector (yellow/green) in the right stick oder elevon gauge (red/black) shows not the correct direction.
The idea of steering or elevon vectors was to see quickly the result of the stick or elevon direction.
But confusing if the direction or the effect is ment. e.g. elevon vector up means both elevons shows up (direction, symmetrical ?) or if the wing pitch up.(effect). Elevons or their vector up means backward up or pitch nose down. The steering vector green dot is wrong in this video. Sorry.
What do you mean with time stamp? The second pic shows the log of pic one. (430 sec)
When the elevons are flat with the wing (underneath) the value is 1500 pps.
Looking at your log I think this looks worse because your elevons are out of trim for forward flight, In forward flight it needs about half up elevator. I would recommend running servo auto trim for a bit while flying in forward flight.
If you were to re-do the vid with the elevons relative to this new trim I think it wouldn’t look so bad. Of course this issue is essentially due to the combination of two systems. The elevons are trimmed relative the the forward flight neutral point where as in copter mode the motors are trimmed relative to the CG.
