I am currently working on designing an 8x VTOL craft. I would like to have my fixed wing control surfaces (ailerons, elevator, and rudder) react to Pitch, Roll and Yaw commands given, even while in multicopter mode.
The things that I have tried so far are:
- Changing the VT_F_TRANS_DUR parameter to a value of 600.0s (I changed it in the .params file itself)
- Changing the VT_F_TR_OL_TM parameter to a value of 600.0s (also changed in the .params file)
I cannot say these have worked because after flipping the transition switch, the MC motors turn off (disarmed to 900RPM) within a few seconds. My understanding was that the MC motors will continue to stay active till the transition time has lapsed.
Another question I had was about the SERVO_OUTPUT ports that are visible in the MavLink Inspector. Sometimes I see two ports (port0 and port1) and other times I see only one port. Most often I see only one port. I have attached an image below with both ports. What is the reason behind being unable to view both ports all the time?
Pleasehelp me out with these two questions. Thank you.
