Fellow tailsitter Duorotor builders,
I, like many of you are experimenting with a dual rotor tailsitter. I have read through many of these posts trying to resolve some of my issues which are similar to others but have not seen any specific resolutions. Here are my questions, sorry if these have been answered somewhere else.
1) Autopilot orientation: if my autopilot is flat to the airframe but 270 in yaw should i also have a 90 degree adjustment for pitch prior to doing calibrations? This would set the autopilot level in MC mode.
2) Should calibrations be done as the airframe is a MC or FW?
3) I have my transition switch set up for channel 7 in QGC. I am able to see the change in signal on the transmitter configuration page. Is there anywhere in QGC to monitor its mode? The screen in QGC where you can see the current GPS location and attitude, at the top of the screen I am able to see the flight modes change between manual, stabilize, alt hold, etc... and it displays Fixed Wing. When I flip my transition switch this indication does not change to Multi Rotor, should it change?
I really appreciate any feedback anyone may have.
