Walrus motorised glider advice on setup
« on: August 01, 2016, 09:28:48 pm »
Hi librepilots,

I have a hobby king Walrus epo motorised glider. 1400mm wing span +-770 frame flying weight.

https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=29051

Cc3d and librepilots installed and setup.

Advice needed on what stabiliser settings please. I have flight control switch sent for attitude - rate - manual (not sure if I should have axis lock instead of rate, I can't understand the difference).

What's a good starting place for the stabiliser settings in the basic tab?

Thanks.

HB

Start with Manual (mean direct link between radio and servos) and fly, adjust the roll differential if needed.

Next fly using Rate with default stabilization settings, basically if not responsive increase P, if servos oscillate: decrease P.
You should use TxPID do do that and test Roll/Pitch Proportional term in flight:

Another good stabilization mode is Acro+, this mean Rate around middle stick and Manual at full stick.
