That is a good idea!

infact , every gimbal need dampers with it. servos can't run smoothly as we think.

Main development points, besides streamlining current code, should be CPPM and radio/BT wireless config and telemetry.

this is not a bizzare function. If yes, why mikrokopter support it? ...
It is a help for us, who have problem with jello effect.

No, i'm not lazy as you think, you just don't know my setup.
I cannot plug in and out easily those little wires, and try to
make it as safe as possible. (ie not touch the connections)

I think this is not a very big work for the team and not a totally
new function. That's why i presume to do asking. Forgive me.

But ICAN, thanks for the positive answer!

i am using an irregular shape configuration with my quad (its like a TBS) my own version made of aluminum as seen in some of my video here.

I tried to use the IRRET shape and i did configure the distance of each motor as instructed but i cannot fly my quad in this setting "IRRET SHAPE" because of the "ARROW" in the GUI setting which i dont understand, so i just went back to x-config.

Thanks in advance

Rizal
the arrows point in the way of prop direction (CW/CCW)
if you made an irret_shape quad you will have the front two arrows pointing outwards or inwards and on the rear the other way around.
here's an irret_shape from my hexa:


if you look at the check boxes you can see that the checked ones have the prop in another direction.

i don't think it's a needed thing, but my FreeFlight has it to (sliders for motors) it is usefull for esc calibration, but it can get unsafe quick..

Can someone please share their GPS parameters for successful PH and RTH. Not the best luck here so far. Have a 650 and 450 quad. Gps both work . Main problem is circles that get bigger over time and eventually have to take back manual control. Also which parameters to adjust first ect. All setup and calibration according to manual.
Thanks

screen shoot of GUI settings will help. Did you done horizontal calibration and compass calibration ? In GUI when rotate copter you have 360 (1) for N, 90, 180,270 for next 90 rotation ? GPS has 5 or more satellites locked ?

I think its the problem of the FC because when that servo is plugged directly into a RX and a TX pot moves it.. it is silky smooth. But hooked up to the FC it is notchy and takes big steps. The refresh rates on the GUI have no affect on the servo steps.

This are my settings for 650 quad:

Forgot to mention that this settings are OK for wind less than 6-8 mph....I'm still working to settings for windy days ( >10 mph) !!!

Have you protected Baro with foam, cover or lid from prop wash, wind, ect?

And sun. Don't forget to shield it from direct sunlight. I once thought I was all good because I have a clear enclosure covering the FC, but as soon as light hit the baro, the 'copter started jumping up and down (good for a real rabbit, not so much for the Rabbit ).

I'm not sure why people are putting position hold and height lock on at the same time. PH locks the position and height. For my setup, both on together this was a no no. If your having trouble guys, try turning off the HL or move it so it's not on when your using PH. This worked nicely for me.
