Re: Motors to respond only to positive pitch input - how?

Do you want this for a programming example, or just for use?

If the first one I'm out of the way, I'm no programmer.
in the latter case I would plug the pusher ESC(s) right into the receiver spare channel and mix a curve bound to throttle on the TX.
The FC doesn't need to know about the pusher(s)

Re: Motors to respond only to positive pitch input - how?

interesting Idea!

I think the FC does not need to know if you are pushing from behind or not;

The FC tries to hold the copter level (or any angel you've set)
If you push, or even pull from behind the copter moves in that direction and the FC tries to hold it straight

Re: Sonar HC-SR04 Support now implemented in MW2.4

OR DID I MISS SOMETHING? I'm no programmer but I think your finding in the code is correct. at least it is consistent with my experience. (watch my videos at the end of page #1) I am very curious about your test-results. i tried to set #define SONAR_GENERIC_MAX_RANGE 100 down to only 1m but for the...

Re: Sonar HC-SR04 Support now implemented in MW2.4

Hi wetzel,
Glad this code works for you.
Have you tested ALT Hold above sonar range?

Please can you zip and attach your whole Sensors.cpp here?
I don't get it which changes you made here :|

Re: Sonar HC-SR04 Support now implemented in MW2.4

I tested in cm. But why would you convert to feet? 13 ft ~ 4 m ( at least my calculator says ) The Sensor itself knows only time, not distance. It sends out a ping and waits for the echo. Formula is distance = elapsed time / speed of sound. (very simplified, pls. someone correct this ) For speed of ...

Re: Sonar HC-SR04 Support now implemented in MW2.4

I'm just curious if you get more out of it after you convert to feet. If it "hears" only about 40 cm it should just read up to 1 feet (just my thought) I tested mine a while ago with another project. Up to 2.5 - 3 Meters it was accurate, after that i got more and more random numbers. this ...

Re: Sonar HC-SR04 Support now implemented in MW2.4

Sorry I have no Idea why your Sonar shows only a few Centimeters. But in your video I see the following: As your sonar drops to 0 debug3 also shows 0. I think dbg3 is the actual height of the copter after all calculations. So if the copter thinks he dropped to 0 Meters he opens full throttle to gain...

Re: Sonar HC-SR04 Support now implemented in MW2.4

Hmm, sounds like it's dead. But for $4.00 it's not a big loss :)
Have you tried to fly the Quad? if i switch to ALT hold and get out of sonar range it shoots up with full throttle :roll:

Re: Sonar HC-SR04 Support now implemented in MW2.4

-do you hear a ticking sound from the Sensor?
-Is Mic and Speaker clean and not bent?
-can you power the board with some stabilised 5V source

I just sent you a testcode for the sensor via PM

Looks like the same thing I found out. If you go above Sonar range, ALT drops to 0 :?

Re: Sonar HC-SR04 Support now implemented in MW2.4

Just reviewed the recorded Onboard Video. Up to 2 Meters the OSD shows the height correctly. Above that it drops to 0 Meters and sometimes shows random numbers.
Also the Vario points full down.

Hi Guys, I finally got the Sonar working on my MultiWii Pro / MTK GPS Controller on PIN 9 and 10. (Pin 11/12 is not available on this board) Example: m in config.h set #define SONAR_GENERIC_TRIGGER_PIN 9 #define SONAR_GENERIC_ECHO_PIN 10 and in def.h change the follwing .. #define SONAR_GEP_TriggerP...
