Re: Altitude Hold/Advanced Failsafe solutions by NHA

What's the quickest way to update source on my multiwii to your latest release with all my personal settings? I suggest to use "diffmerge" and check all ino and h files one by one. You will see the changes in code and can decide if you accept or not. Yeah, I've been using "winmerge&q...

Re: Altitude Hold/Advanced Failsafe solutions by NHA

There is a trigger for changing altitude once RTH started/mode changed in the GPS code too. I think that caused the problem. Seemed to work now. I only had the vario for reaching RTH ALT at 75 cm/s. I changed it to 200 for next test run. I'd like to to jump up pretty quick in case of trees in immed...

Hi, It looks I found the missing part in the I2C GPS code part. Since I don't have i2c GPS, I didn't recognized this till now, and it i...

Re: Altitude Hold/Advanced Failsafe solutions by NHA

Been using the source you posted. RTH, vario ALT, and failsafe RTH work pretty well. For some reason I can't get it to do anything with ALT on RTH, in either regular RTH or failsafe. It just pretty much comes home at whatever ALT it was at before i hit the switch or it lost signal (turned Tx off). A...

Hi, this is a deadspan for roll/pitch. If you apply mode roll/pitch during hold mode, it will release from hold mode and once stick is back to centre, it'll save the new position as home. It must be uncommented, unless Arduino gives a compilation error.

Thank you for the reply!

Re: Altitude Hold improvement solution

Anyone notice the AP_MODE define is commented out of nhadrian's uploaded code? I

What gives here?

I'm new here. Nice to meet you all.

I could use a little bit of explanation regarding this deadspan and how it works. I know it's off-topic... Sorry.
