Title: Introducing Flight Test Team

Flight Test Team membership

Hi all.

We have recently established the LibrePilot Flight Test Team.

The developers are working hard to release the first LibrePilot GCS, which re-adds support for the CC3D board in addition to other, new features. Feedback on how these features work are needed and the Flight Test Team (FTT) is a great way to help out.

Currently, the team consists of a few contributors who previously participated in OpenPilot testing. We need to enlarge the testing phase to include more operating systems, as well as to include a wider range of hardware and vehicles.

Please understand that testing flight software is dangerous. You can seriously damage your model or hurt yourself. Precautions must be taken to limit the risks. We sometimes damage an aircraft while testing software, but the satisfaction of having contributed to a stable release far exceeds the hassle of repairing a broken copter.

Therefore, we ask those wishing to actively participate in the growth of LibrePilot via helping out in the FTT, to state below that they want to join.

Those who will be part of the FTT will have access to a board called Flight Test Team. In the FTT board, developers will present software and firmware to be tested. It will be the place to provide feedback to developers. The board will be private for safety reasons, due to the availability of untested software.

Please provide a description of your experience level, hardware you can test, vehicles you plan to test with and supported operating systems you can test on.

Supported hardware:
CC3D, Revolution, Nano (Revolution Nano), OPLink, Non-OP telemetry, OP GPS (any version), Non-OP uBlox GPS, MinimOSD/MinOpOsd.

Supported operating systems:

Thanks to all the fearless who want to help us!


The LibrePilot team

Hell yeah. Count me in.

I have participated in flight testing before and I am well aware of the potential for things to go 'pear shaped'.
I have both quads and tricopters of all sizes. My main test frame is a 330 size quad fitted with Revo and V9 GPS.
I have CC, CC3D, and Revo boards, both with the V9 and V8 GPS and I also have a few OpLink's as well, though I haven't used these (OpLink) for some time.
I mainly run all my gear on a mac (both desktop tower and laptop) and I am running 10.9.5. I also have a windoze laptop that I can use if I have to.

I'd like to be a part of this team.  Actually i use a cc3d fc with cgs on windows vista o.s. i haven't partecipated in flight testing before. I have two mini racers class 250 and one 280 with atom. And i'll realize a mini exacopter with revo board. Sometimes i fly with some appassionate friends.

Hello There,

I fly models been working for almost 40 years. At the moment I'm experimenting with a Heli 450 and CC3D.
For professional reasons, I can not be every day at the airfield, but would love to try the team support. In all my heli a FBL system is installed .
My English is not very good, for translations, I use Google as one can certainly read here .
I work with Win8.1 und in the next time with Win10.

Post by: cato on July 26, 2015, 09:04:02 am
Yeah, would be nice to be part of the FTT :)

I've been on OP only a few months now, my experience in multicopters is about one year now, with lots of hours flying recently.I fly LOS, right now starting to fly acro in rattitude, otherwise rate (can't wait to do my first flips and rolls in rate :) ).

Currently I fly only one quadrocopter (my Nighthawk 250) with a Revo, but I have 3 CC3D and 1 Atom waiting to get a job (again), and plan to test them on different vehicle categories, the next will be a heli and a plane. I want to try out FPV as well.

I am using GCS on Debian Linux and Windows.

Post by: nicoyote on July 26, 2015, 07:27:34 pm
hellos will be happy that I could do the test. I have a mini 250 with cc3d a mini spider hex with revo gps uBlox and b330 with revo gps v8 but it is down a esc. following my free time and weather in my area I would do better now to help you. Regards.

I'd also like to join FTT.

Currently flying a 350 sized hex and a 250 sized quad both with Revo boards;
I also have a FC-less 450 sized quad (That I'd happily turn into a test frame) and a couple of 450 sized CP Helis (one of which has a CC3D in it but isn't quite flying yet)

And I've got a couple of CC3Ds spare, an OPLink and a v8 and v9 GPS.

Hello,

thank you for the trust.

I've already installed the GIT and also managed to compile my first version of the brunch.
The firmware for this brunch is partly filled already on my CC3D (450 Heli), at the weekend I can hopefully try.

That's no problem, if I can answer the questions that I can help a lot.

Note, however, that's my English is not very good, I always use the Google translator, which is probably not always correct.

Hi guys!
I was disappointed to learn that project OP was closed for cc3d. As the potential of the controller was not disclosed. I have great expectations for your project LibrePilot. If I could be something useful, I would like to join your team.
I have cc3d, some set of motors and esc, MavlinkOSD and RemzibiOSD, fpv Fatshark Predator V2, gps u-blox 6 and 7, sensors board gy-86 and HMC5883L with i2c bus, sonars and other devices. But I like to use a custom DIY frames.

Nuts!!

Wish I had seen this earlier. Would love to help out on FTT.  Is it too late?

Still a relative noob to the hobby, just a year into it but what fun!  ATM I have 3 mini's: Sparrow, Toad and DRQ 250, two flying Revo's/v9's, one Revo Nano.  Another mini, Knight 150 on the way, will have a Nano.  My prime test vehicle is a homebuilt woodie, Bruiser 460, currently equipped with Revo/V9.  Oh, and my first multirotor, a Tri with CC3D, not flyable ATM, but easy to fix.

Well, I just have

- a 525 frame, shortened to about 400mm,
2212-800KV motors, 9443 props, CC3D which works good with OpenPilot.

- a G5 heli with flybar, where I use a mini-CC3D just as gyro and use the 2 curves for throttle and pitch
(took me a while to find out that a direct tx-to-servo-bypass has to be done in the flight mode switch
settings, and I feel that there is some latency in that...)

I operate both CC3Ds with the DSM satellite option.

If testing on those is of any use, let me know!

Hi all!

I would be honored to be part of FTT! I'm sure that you guys will make awesome things!

I'm a medium experienced multicopter pilot (about 2 years) and builder (about 15 built), currently fly with 2 quads:

Frame: microSQUID V5 by bandit
FC: CC3D
ESC: DYS BL20A
Motors: RCX H2206-2250KV
Props: HQ 6x4.5"
LiPo: Turnigy nano-tech 4S 1800mAh 65-130C

Frame: Nero 180
FC: CC3D Atom
ESC: DYS BL20A
Motors: RCX H1306-3100KV
Props: HQ 5x4" (cut to 4")
LiPo: Turnigy nano-tech 3S 1000mAh 45-90C

I use GCS on W7 & W10 (32 & 64 bit).

I fly with some friends when it's possible, almost all of them use CC3D, I can ask if they want to be part of FTT :D

Cheers from Italy!

I'm thinking of my next scratch build. I have a new Ublox Neo 8MN, thinking about pairing it with a Sparky2, I think I read LibrePilot might support these(?) but I also have a spare Revo Nano I could use.
Computers are HP laptop, Win 7 and Hackintosh OS X Yosemite.

I've been flying a Librepilot next build that I managed to compile back in August, however lately I've been unable to pull off a successful build. I've recently seen some really smooth video of the FTT members flying RC3. As usual I'm late to the party, but wish to be considered for membership into the Librepilot FTT. Thanks.

If you need any more testers feel free to add myself. I have another real OP revo on the way with a v9 GPS that I could use for testing in addition to a hex and quad that are both running Revo's. In addition I have a few non OP GPS's with mags that could be useful for what ever. I have GCS running on both my macbook and the desktop pc which is also loaded with centOS. Im flying these atm so Im sure I could be of some use somewhere :)

I have two HK250 helicopters that I want to fly to way-points, take off and land autonomously, etc. Currently I have CC3D nanos but want Revo Nanos (and sensors) to learn more.

Maybe I could be of some value to you as a tester.

If you find it difficult to find a Nano to buy, be aware that there are at least two decent Mini Revo clones available that others have posted about.  One is full Revo and the other is Revo minus telemetry (but you can add a telemetry module).  They act like a Revo in the software.

Hey Guys,

Familiar with all things git, and been flying, tweaking and breaking a ZMR250 for close to a year, Looking at building another Quadcopter with CC3D Librepolot and taking dRonin Autotune throght its paces.

Vehicle: 250 Quadcopter
OS: Windows 10

Thanks for the opportunity

Rob.

Title: Re: Introducing Flight Test Team
Post by: liftbag on March 21, 2016, 10:42:35 am
All requests received.
If anyone would like to test dRonin Autotune porting, CC3D is not supported in LP. Actually only revolution and revonano are supported.

Edit 2016 June 25: Sparky2 is now supported in next and so the AutoTune branch also supports Sparky2 now.

I'd like to help wherever I can .
I have two original Open Pilot CC3D boards I test and tune with while building . Once built I replace the originals with a clone . I built four quads over the past winter . Three for friends . 450 , 280 and 250 sized . And a 330 for myself . I am a LOS flyer . A throwback from my heli days of years ago . I also have a CC board I have never used .
I am a CNC maintenance mechanic by trade , so controllers are something I am familiar with .
My next project is a tricopter , ( gathering parts currently ) . And, I plan to build a flying wing next winter .
If you think I may be able to help in any way , feel free to add me to the test team .

I would like to join LP FTT. Did not notice before that I have to formally express my wish too join. I was dong some autotune testing lately on two models and reported in other threads here.
I have NightHawk-200 with Revolution, RS2205 2600kv, 3S battery;
          NightHawk-280 clone with Revolution, RS2205 2300kv, 3S battery + GPS with mag (have M8N and M7N diff brands)
          NH-360 clone with Sparkey2 and MT2208 II 2000kv, 4S +GPS with mag
I was flying little over a year. Started with OP CC3D than move to Revo when project dyed, moved to Ardupilot (still have Flame Wheel 450  with Pixhawk). Moved to LP when I found it in February.
I hope I can be useful to some extent.
Forgot to mention, I am using Windows 10 (compiled latest r1212 autotune fork and "next" with no problem).

I would love to get back into testing the Revo code!  Not sure how welcome I would be given I was a member of OP and OPNG.....I helped with testing and doing admin of the wiki as well as JIRA.  I still have several Revo and CC3D boards along with one Nano.  My interests would be to eventually help with coding the GCS interface but thats a long term statement.  I never got to work with QT.  There is a lot of cool engineering that is developed with the peripheral components too.  Anyway my main claim to OP frame was testing Waypoint Nav and ATL....Think Alex Beck did most of that code but I am not sure if he is a member here.

Any way let me know if I can help....Mark

You are welcome.
The FFT was not involved in the testing of the 16.09 because of the release candidate actual mechanism.
The problem is known, and I think things will change regarding the next release.

Crashing is plus!  It is a good excuse to build another one...  :)

Go to the wiki, follow the instructions to build everything from source, then think of something you want to code and roll up your sleeves.  That's the best way to get started.

Post by: TheOtherCliff on August 07, 2017, 06:59:54 am
I didn't reply, hoping that someone who knows more than I would.  :)

Back in the OP days, there was an official FTT that tried to test most everything (even the tedious old stuff) and filled out test forms, but this seems to have faded.  Now days there is/was a guy in the forum who built "next" fairly regularly and people who were interested in playing with bleeding edge features would test that and post if they had problems.  Of course anyone can download the source, read the wiki for build instructions and buiild whatever version they want.
Title: Re: Introducing Flight Test Team
Post by: Mateusz on August 07, 2017, 08:22:44 am
I think there are two level of checks:
Last time I build next was Saturday (2 days ago), just to update 2 micro quads and 1 bigger quad, but went to fly with bigger one to test fpv hardware upgrade.

If you want to help, would be good if you could familiarize yourself with git
Code: [Select]
git add remote somedev http://bitbucket.com/somedev/librepilot
git fetch somedev
git branch -a
git checkout somedev/featureToReview
# here usual make clean ; make ....

You could also familiarize yourself with git merge or git rebase commands which allow you to combine next with someones work locally.
This is pretty good tutorial which if followed step by step will make you good at using git https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials

Then you can go to bitbucket website and look for PR (pull-up requests), test  them out, give comments.
For already merged code, usual features are stable and well tested, but if you use something unusual, and notice a problem. You can try fixing it or reporting it to devs.

How to build software from git for different operating systems you can find on Wiki for example for Linux https://librepilot.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/LPDOC/pages/57671696/Linux+-+Building+and+Packaging
