Ok thanks
Would you be able to get a screenshot of your settings next time you have it plugged in?

I'm having trouble with mine developing a wobble especially in descents but yours looked very good.

Unless your flying the same bird. The PIDS will not be the same. It's all a matter of just tweaking them. I'd suggest slowly take them to badlands values. You need to try set it up out of the wind as well.

My quad is rock solid out of the wind, but make a descent or get it in some wind and it gets the wobbles. Everything on mine is stock apart from the roll/pitch P values which are both down at 3.0.

Tuning these things needs lots of patience and some voodoo.

Oh yes I've been lucky. The spider has not yet been tweaked and is rock solid even when not in auto level.
Just ordered motors and a V4 board for my next quad. Eight inches tip to tip. Will start it when I get back.

I had to tone down the stock pid settings when I first got my quad working but then uploaded the latest firm wear and it will run on stock settings as there toned down already on this one this is what mudlark is running I would imagin you are using the older firm wear? You need to Remember when decending that you are balancing on a tower of air if you fall off the side you will get wobble Can't watch your vid BL 3G crap on the train will have a look at home .

Yeah I am currently on 1.8patch 2, I will try the newer 1.9 firmware as well if badlands settings dont work.

Thanks for the help

Just load the new firmware it will be alot quicker that changing pids I think this will solve your wobble it did on my one. I'll up load a vid so you can see the difference give me a min.

badlands nice quad in the clouds i think the parashute idea would be good for next time lol when did you realise it wasnt going to make it home?
