Recently returned from field.
I have tested Panda1 installed on X8. 2 strange results:

1. Too small roll stability. Think, that this is due small PID. May be I need add to 90.

2. I have tested Nav and RTL mods at the ground - no problem, throttle works at max, this is OK.

During 2 test flights I try to fly by navpoints, plane rotates to the first navpoint but sets throttle to zero. Why? Speed did not reached target speed, it seed to 72 km/h.
RTL mode lead to zero throttle too.

Hornet OSD 1.6

Start building plane with Panda for mapmaking.

I have Hornet OSD and decide to add it to Panda, because I cannot fly without OSD, I need home direction at least

I try to this with a success:

You need only connect Panda UART Tx to Horent UART Rx. Horent will show you all info, including current sensor from Panda.

After I asked FY tech support how to connect Panda and Hornet, they give me answer (ther is no info in Panda and Horent manuals).

Note about FY DOS settings for X8


I have made flight on X8 with FY31 in strong wind, up to 8 m/s near the ground.

Plane flies good. When it circle fly by the wind direction, it loose up to 25 meters altitude, then returning against wind - climb altitude back.

One time wind on altitude became faster than airspeed, and DOS try to fly directly (but to backward specific to the ground), without any madness . Resolve this issue by give max throttle to the plane.

It's a pity, ground station wasn't record OSD video, have only onboard from boscam camera.

2 days ago I flew on my X8 with DOS. Before take off I forget power on booster on Futaba Tx.

At about 100 meters plane catch failsafe, with is on RTL mode on DOS.

RTL mode trow plane into horizontal turning. Until I find and on booster, plane makes a 7 turns. What it was? RTL bug?

X8 with FY DOS failsafe (2 min 28 sec)

Gain settings of DOS is default.
Circling radius set to 120meters.
Cruising speed 65 km/h
Failsafe settings set to ~50% throttle, and RTL mode on.
