I've mounted a Pixhawk with px4 stack on a Bixler 3. Now, I'm having a really hard time getting this thing into the sky using manual mode and all this equipment (Without it flew just like a dream), as the trims are just too poorly set. Therefore I've crashed it already many times right 1-2 seconds after start.
Is there a way using a stabilized mode right from the start? I'm pretty sure, after it is in the sky I will get the chance to set the trims just right.
Second question is about the auto takeoff. Somehow it just won't start, Can someone explain how to us this mode? What I did for auto takeoff:
1. Set the auto takeoff point on Qgroundcontrol mission about 150 Meter away from home
2. configured pitch angle and heading ° (I'm not sure, what heading this is - flight direction after auto takeoff point reached?)
3. Set the Bix3 in direction of auto takeoff
4. Switched to auto takeoff - then command gets rejected and it switches automatically to altitude flight mode, where it doesn't seem to react at any input given (throttle, pitch etc) It's just stands there.
