My new Dual-Tri VTOL Platform with MWC


Hello I like to show you my new VTOL Platform it flies but i have still some Problems and i hope someone can help me.

The gyro board is based on Multiwii and I have the Code from Cass Version 1.8 on it.

How can i activate the servo stretch code? I have only a servo rotation of 90degrees and because of that the Yaw correction in hover mode works only on one side and the other side is limited by the 2000us.

And my big problem is the Yaw offset to make the torque correction in hovermode. I did it like this but now the servo jumps in transition.

servo[5] = constrain( 2730 - (lastRcData[AUX2] >> AUX2_DAMPENING) + YAW_DIRECTION * axisPID[YAW]/2 - rcCommand[PITCH]/5, 1020, 2000); } //front motor tilt (regular speed)

Welcome to RCgroups!

I myself am pretty new to using Cass's code so I may be wrong on some of these, but for moving the servo beyond 90 degrees I changed the endpoints in the radio and the code gave me about 5 percent more throw to get yaw in hover and get the two motors far enough for forward flight.

for the jumping servo in transition make sure you change the value in fast hover as well, I had the servo jump in transition too. We only changed the values in hover and forward flight, while fast hover was backwards. Changing all the values should help.

There is a place in the code to turn the servo stretching on. I'll be home in a few days and can look it ... up unless someone else can help sooner.

Why not just max out the travel in the TX, and then if necessary, use longer servo arms?

Also, unless this thing is strapped to a wing of some sort, I don't see how it would fly with the forward motors rotated all the way forward. There would be nothing to provide any lift. I would think anything beyond about 45 degrees would be problematic.

Assuming that there is a wing involved, it would presumably need to have ailerons, because differential tilt on the rotors is going to be minimally effective when the front rotors are both rotated forward 90 degrees.
