APM Control Surface Tests

Hooray, got all the control surface issues figured out.  Here's a video of how things should look, and a few pointers.

  • In manual mode, do any reversing necessary on the radio.  APM just passes the signal through in this mode, so reversing via the software won't do anything.
  • Be sure you're not backwards on how ailerons move. See this page for full details.
  • Test in three modes: manual, stabilized, and fly-by-wire A.
  • In stabilized and FBWA, rudder will be mixed in with the ailerons.  Be sure pushing the aileron stick left produces left rudder.
Tomorrow, prayer breakfast and then flight!
