Hello,

Please, can anybody explain what effect modifying "again" setting in the GUI has? Is it one of the PID parameters?

A-Gain


Hi all ,
If you mean AGain in Protool, yes this is for PID auto Calculation , to adjust the control for different frame sizes. when I Rebuild my T580 I have to set A-Gain down to 6,2. Before it woobles a little.

So new HD Video is Ready........


Hi all, All setting checked. Cam now on HD.
This was a Rc Heli meeting from Rc Pilots they meet mostly in bad weather Indoor in diff Halls here in Berlin. But the weather was so good today.
Enjoy. AQ50pro in T580 Frame. Cam Rollei P3 mount on Top, Raw Video, No Cam Stabi a all. Fun Fun Fun
AQ50pro in Lotus RC T580 Frame (6 min 46 sec)

AQ works perfect.

Many thanks, Mike, a first short testflight showed that a lowered value for "again" fixed my problem.

In my understanding "again" works like the "D"-value of PID and that the wobbling was a result of the fast high torque motors I'm using.

I think these motors are also responsible for the low "gain"-value of 10.

Cheers,
Holger

Hi,

Can anyone tell me which improvents were made from software version 1.2 to 1.4 and from 1.4 to 1.5? Or is there an official revision list?

Thanks in advance,
Holger

from a flying point of view i didn't feel a great difference from 1.0 to 1.5, using same G setup. 1.5 has usefull feature for Camera Gimbal centering in pc software.

USB Interface


The AQ50D has caught my attention and I have started reading this thread as best I can. But I do not understand where users are getting a USB device for the PC. Every place I visit does not mention a USB interface available.

What are you gentleman using and where can it be found? I would like to place just one order if possible.

hi,

its called a TMF programming link

even foxtech should have it

hope this helps

Hi,

I think the drift is temperature driven. I detected that cruising produces less drift than extrem speeding. The FC cools down in strong wind and produces the annoying drift. Can anyone confirm this?

Has anybody experience with both, a completely covered FC and an uncovered one, and shares his experiences with us?

Cheers,
Holger

Is there a hardware difference with the 1.5 boards from the 1.2 or is it just a firmware update?

it depends.. there are 2 hardware configs, 2G and 6G.. R19 and R21 being open or short determine hardware setup. When 1.2 firmware came out, it was only for 6G setup.. don't remember other fw versions if they had a double release. 1.5 is available as 2G or 6G.
I personally prefer 2G setup, it drifts less and it has a better feel for me, i find it more precise. TMF say 6G should be more resistant to vibrations.. i don't know.. i balance props and motors very well for filming so i don't have vibration problems.
I tried on the same day fw 1.0 and 1.5 on 2G , and i honestly couldn't tell any difference in flight.. maybe throttle , but it still is very sensitive... and yaw is still bad, you cannot do a slow pan with this board... it is like the P value for yaw gain was too high, and so the copter will either not move its tail, or move it too quickly.. there is no smooth transition... multiwii was much better in this. I still haven't seen an onboard video with smooth slow yaw.. and by slow i mean something like 10 seconds for 90..
drift is still present too, and it affects camera gimbal output too... very annoying.. and drift problem will not be solved by fw... if the sensors are giving rubbish values there is nothing software can do...
i have now a Rabbit board to test.. i want to see how it compares with aq50d... as a plus, it has barometer and magneto ( but i don't care about magneto if it hold heading as well as aq50 does). If baro works well it is a big help, when you have it 30ft in the air... but at the moment i can't get the software to work on my mac emulating windoze... aq50 software works no problem... i really like the semplicity of aq50d... pity they cannot seem to solve problems, now they only think about gps...

Ok thanks. I was just curious if the 1.5 had yet another hardware change beyond that.
