    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    i ran into this dilemma. if i increase the I_gain, the quad tends to try to stay where it is but starts to oscillate heavily, if i decrease it, it becomes more stable but starts to drift so much i cant really call it drifting, its more like moving to that direction. I followed every guide to...

    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    I already do that :D . i give it about 15 seconds or so before reading the initial. it happens pretty quickly. i would says about a second of stable in place hover and then without touching the direction stick, it starts to drift significantly.

    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    but i think there is a problem because the drift feels significant. significant enough to feel like my room is too small for it. i expected a drift but not that much. I suspect that its the build im doing. i have two layers above the motors. One floor takes the battery and another takes the...

    ok everything works great except one thing, It drifts left. I tried adjusting the PID many times but i haven't been able to figure out which one should i change. im trying to make an angle controller now it works except this drift.

    Yeah, i think im just gonna use some online service that creates a board for you. that would save me alot of headache.

    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    sometimes i wanna punch the wall! Gaaaah! i had to move the battery cus the build was kinda shaky and weak. As i was doing the reassembling, i peeled off the metal that connects one of the motors to the ESC by mistake so i had to replace the ESC. after tons of re assembling and soldering, ITS...

    so higher Pwm is better than servo? i did some adjustments and it works with analogwrite right now But i don't notice any difference.

    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    alright its flying! still problem with yawing. i need to figure out why its not correcting for yaw that well but i could definitely call it flight. my room is too small to let it go free and test it properly. cant say how well its flying sense it keeps smashing into things before taking off...

    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    its kinda odd but i tried to do some adjustments but it not working. essentially, it seems that it can only go up like that if i increase the speed quickly with significant amount of yaw. so if i adjust the yaw so that its not yawing like a car wheel, than it won't fly up. is that a common...

    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    Its soooo close! im so excited! i turned it on after a few changes and it went straight up! it looked like a coin that is just about done spinning but it actually toke off for once ! its sooo clooose :D. i think its time for pid adjustments.

    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    thank you. its been resolved. It seems to be a calibration issue. i calibrated it a few times before. i switched escs and the same issue stayed so i didn't suspect it but yup. its working now :D

    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    one thing to note is that i have more solder than needed because i found that the motor wire is too thin and if i don't solder part of the plastic with it, it moves slightly and eventfully break off.

    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    There also to discuss here but generally, everything is global. i know that's a bad idea structurally and i plan to change that at some point. the part where pretty much everything happens is the adjust() method. it does the reading of the gyro, the pid and the motors write. so after we read a...

    flight controller design simulator?

    Hello everyone. long story short, im trying to create my own flight controller for a project and testing has been a pain. im wondering, is there a simulation out there that i can give Arduino code and quad copter specification to see how the quad would generally behave? it would really be a...

    Trouble with brush less motors and Power.

    i removed it, minimal change. ill note that current battery is 7.4 2S lipo with 250 mAh 20C . switching to a 450 mAh 80C reduced the motors speed quite noticeably but they still turn off at the same microseconds write. this must mean something but i don't what. anyway, ill document...
