Hi All, first “real” drone build finished, a Holybro X500 with some modifications. I have a background in robotics so went with a Naze32 (I realis this is an ancient board) which is ROS (Robotics Operating System) compatible so I can use it for automation later.
To test my build I installed the latest iNav I could before moving on to the integration with my other stuff.
I’m running Baro, Magnetometer and GPS sensors alongside the usual Accelerometer.
In NAV ALTHOLD it’s rock solid, I mean literally - no oscillations, it just sits where I leave it! Switch to NAV POSHOLD (which in theory is ALTHOLD plus X/Y?) and it rockets skyward at an epic rate! I can’t see any real reason for this when ALT HOLD works so flawlessly.
I’m waiting for an F7 board in the post as I realised after finishing my build that there’s a MAVLINK module for ROS and the later iNav versions support bidirectional MAVLINK - lesson learned!!
