Re: SW Development on Minim Osd

What happened to video system in config.h ? Looks like it's hardwired for PAL now /******************************************* Video System ***********************************/ //#define VideoSignalType_PAL //const char videoSignalType=1; #define VideoSignalType_NTSC const char videoSignalType=0;

Re: GPS integration

Huh, even with gps protocol set and verified in binary, navigatron equiped quad *still* has a case of twitching, no change at all.

Turning on gps filtering seems to help (subjective, hard to measure 'twitch') altho we are told it's not needed with mtk binary : :?:

Re: GPS integration

Oh, think I got it - had to update the mtk3329 on the Navigatron to the latest and greatest v1.6 ( m ) and NOW the setup part of I2C_GPS_NAV works - at least when copy/pasting the command into realterm ( m ) - it starts out in 38400, switches to 115200, switching to binary then sets update rate to 1...

Re: GPS integration

Ok, finally got some time and a new ftdi board (the ckdevices one for easy rx/tx crossover) - my goal is to get binary gps data running instead of nmea to get rid of the twitching during gps hold and rth. I've uploaded the mtk 3329 with MTK3329_A1.5E_20110118_10Hz_115200.bin and using the stock I2C_...

Re: Altitude Hold improvement solution

just tried Mahowik's IMU.ino and see noticible improvement - just a quick test. I could not get the crashpilot1000 sketch to work - got lots of i2c errors after setting my config.h defines. builds and loads but those bus errors made me back out. On your GUI, there is no baro data - suggest you look...

Re: Altitude Hold improvement solution

[quote="Crashpilot1000"]i2c errors??? Sorry, but my mod does not mess with your hardware!!! If the original 2.1 runs on your hardware, my mod should do it as well! There is no reason for that. If 2.1 doesn't run, my mod will not run either. Don't tell me 2.1 runs fine on your setup. In wic...

Works, but twitchy

Hi - Just got a recent build Navigatron and recent Quadrino - looks like it working great but wondering about a slight twitch when gps hold or rth is on. Looking for some knobs to tweak - I do have gps filtering ON, even tho a comment in the code says: * With MTK and UBLOX you don't have to use GPS_...

Re: Once again about MAG

Ferrite beads are good for filtering out high frequency noise from interfering with radios, like digital square pulses can create a lot of odd frequency harmonics (m) - but what we have here is a static or slowly varying magnetic field cause by the dc in the power cables (m). Just to get an idea of ...

Re: Once again about MAG

yes, my Witespy quad goes about 45° off with WOT. I'm wondering if stuff like this would help : http://www.lessemf.com/mag-shld.html

Re: Simple mode for beginers

Hi - I'm relatively new to quads and trying out the headfree mode - I thought it was working ok but after close testing it seems like the 'referance plane' is rotating some with the quad. Even at first, after power on, there appears to be a 10-15 degree offset from where it was pointing at poweron....
