We're getting closer to the release of "Neat". Today i've been testing 8 different aircraft to make sure everything works nicely...
Sorry for the crummy video framing-- this is what the results of neotune (next generation autotune), on an 800-size quad looks like in attitude mode:
May throw it on my 550 hex tomorrow......
I gave it a try over the week-end in my lightweight loki. So far (Only 4 flights) I did not experience the memory error I sometimes had with Artifice (Brain RE1). Need to test it more to confirm this though. All in all the aircraft was very nice.
Someone was brave enough to dig into the interface of the GCS ?!?
A little NeoTuned FlameWheel 550 Hex Horizon mode fun out at the field...
LitterBug That's awesome! Are you pleased with it? Any thoughts on how it compares to the old autotune?
mlyle I need to throw it on a few more frames to get a better idea on the feel. Don't have enough time on this build to be able to judge flight differences. The graphical display on the autotune is a nice addition. After looking at the release notes above, I'll be throwing it on the Owl frames next to get LED support on LUX and EVO.
I downloaded this copy from the neotune branch that was closed recently. Is there a better place to pull the pre-release?
Here's a little preview of what's coming in the next release (relnote draft):
Thanks for all the work, guys!
Who do I need to hug for the following two?
"NeoTune" next generation cross-correlation based tune algorithm yields better results
Support 4WIF passthrough for ESC programming across 'MSP' protocol interface.
I want to push a preview build and will be shortly-- unfortunately I have very limited internet connectivity at the moment.
In the meantime-- a nightly-- a build produced at 5:03AM in this list: http://jar.lyle.org:8080/job/dronin/ would be the best bet. As always, the tip of the development branch carries risk.
Went to the other extreme. 118mm Owl. Configured from scratch. LOVE having the LEDs for orientation flying LOS!! Same controller and motors as the previous tune, but different frame and FPV gear now.
First tune was with some horrendously vibrating motors. Glad to be back to the DYS motors.
Absoulutely rock solid flying LOS in tight back yard.
EDIT: funny... heavier frame had lower TAU.... ;-)
I used the nightly build on my 750 with quanton fc and neotune picked values that felt very locked in.
