Any ide’s what frame type should be used for setting up this type of drone?


V Hexacopter frame

It looks like you will have to add it in AP_MotorsMatrix.cpp file.

Not sure how to do that!

google is your friend, but here it is:

http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/parameters.html#frame-type
http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/frame-type-configuration.html?highlight=frame_type

So this is an FRAME_CLASS=OCTA and FRAME_TYPE=H but I am pretty sure you will need to adapt the existing source code in AP_MotorsMatrix.cpp#L507 to fully meet your custom build.

Many thanks, a bit beyond me at the moment. Looks like some studying will have to be done!

I believe in the version 2.5 there is this frame. The frame is registered by a German company Volo Copter for a patent

Thanks Rainer, I’ll look into that. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
