asctec-users – GPS mode behavior
Some of my colleagues had this problem while doing some outdoor flight tests earlier this summer. You find it here: Google Maps is quite easy. Best, Jos On 26 August In the upper left appears a box with information of the vicinity where you clicked and the GPS coordinates e.
You can download it here. It is highly recommended to perform a motor controller update with the Research Upgrade Tool after all IDs have been assigned properly.

Creating a Georeferenced Image Creating a georeferenced image with e. Yesterday we flew the Pelican in GPS mode, and after a few minutes of stable flight, all of a sudden it started going in a direction, even when i took my hands off the RC controller.
Asctsc don’t remember exactly what caused it, but it had to do with a GPS indexing issue, and required a firmware upgrade from AscTec. The same problem also occurred to me when flying in GPS mode and that the Pelican went crazy which resulted in some minor crashes.
GPS mode behavior
This will not work. You can now load the image into the AutoPilot Control software. That will include several new features and of course will fix this problem. My question is, what kind of filtering if any is being done by autopilot, to smooth out the GPS signals.
However, after analyzing the problem further we found out that the u-blox GPS receivers used on the AscTec Hummingbird and AscTec Pelican can get in trouble when using SBAS services, which have been cleared for regular operation earlier this year.
This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. Go to Google Maps and go to the area of your interest Click on the lower left to select “Earth” mode Take a screenshot of the maps.
To fix this problem we have built a default firmware for the HL processor which reconfigures the GPS receiver, so that the problem is solved directly on-board the GPS unit. On the top left of the window there is now something like “AutoPilot LowLevel “.
It was never intended to be used with the camera mount option 4. Yes, this is possible.
Created by Andre Rylllast modified on Dec 19, In a panic, I had to then try to suddenly land the quad-rotor, which lead to a minor crash. Expand all Collapse all. In the new “System Info” window click on “Update Information”. Always take off and land manually.
In reply to this post by kjackson Hi there. Hi, did you maybe loose GPS signal for some reason? GPS mode behavior Identical behavior has been been observed here on multiple occasions. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained. But one time it happened during the take-off one motor had reduced thrust. Identical behavior has been been observed here on multiple occasions.
In the event of unexpected behavior you can always use the RC to take over control. If your UAV is new, this is our default connection and you do not need to change anything.
Skip to end of metadata. Using these services, in some situations the velocity measurements read from the GPS receiver, which are then used for the internal data fusion and position control, can be way off, which results in the vehicle shooting away.
Do not worry, your camera mount option 4 is not broken, you can control it by using the AscTec SDK and writing your own code.
We will then inform you on our homepage about possibilities how to get the update. In case you exchanged a motor controller you may need to assign the correct ID to it according to its position. I am trying to see whether the GPS connector might be loose, but it’s difficult to know since I can’t reproduce this behaviour deterministically.
You should now see all the status information of the UAV In the “Packets” field you may select to receive more info packets e.
You can find the correct IDs on the image below.
