Using Autotune in ArduPlane

Hi,

http://plane.ardupilot.com/wiki/auto...with-autotune/

New to Pixhawk, I've read the autotune documentation (link above) but can't turn the function ON because "autotune" is not even one of the flight mode list in Mission Planner 1.3.7. What have I missed ?

I'm using ArduPlane 3.0.3 and MP 1.3.7

Thanks

It seems Autotune have been implemented in a later version of Mission Planner. I've upgraded to 1.3.9 and it is there now.

I used the default settings and did two flights and it was tuned perfect. After the first flight I recorded the PID values and after the second flight they did change a little so I think that's a good procedure.


I tried it on another airplane with no ailerons (just elevator and rudder) and it came up with the gains too high. So the goodness of tuning depends on your airplane.

Good to know. Mine is an FX-61 flying wing (elevons).
