Calibration: Horizontal Alignment

Postby Lost_Monkey_5 » Fri Jan 29, 2016 6:38 pm

When connected to a computer the Primary Flight Display has the Roll axis is inverted. Thus when the Drone is shown leaning to the left on the display it is actually leaning to the right. Although, when the entire Drone is inverted the display shows correct orientation.

Welcome to the AQ forums. We don't use the word "drone" here. :) j/k

The HUD/PFD is showing the horizon line. Horizon tilts opposite of craft. As if you're sitting in/on the craft and looking forward. I've never seen an attitude HUD display on any kind of vehicle which works otherwise.

Max, the line is Horizon tilting with the craft and not opposite.

Then maybe the IMU Flip setting is off? It is in the Misc. Settings section. http://autoquad.org/wiki/wiki/configuri ... nd-rotate/

I have an AIMU AQ6 board so there is no option for the DEFAULT_IMU_FLIP. I re-calibrated the board and it fixed the problem.
