:loudspeaker: Community Announcement

:people_holding_hands: Community Q&A (No deep technical discussions)

:exclamation: Guideline for asking a Question

  1. Specify what you are trying to achieve
  2. Specify what environment / platform you are using
  3. Prepare a Link or Document to help understand if possible
  4. First, ask the question on the Slack or create a Github Issue!
  5. If you take over 5 minutes for the question, please continue in Slack or a Github Issue.

Q.1 : Flying Tailsitter VTOL with Control Surfaces - Jay

Fixed-wing commands were being used in MC mode, so control surfaces were acting like a plane (when it shouldn’t)

  • Control surfaces are jittering a lot!
  • Simulation: Flip stream? not modeled

Q.2 : Iridium driver Parameter duplicate error - Ludovic

Want to define the ‘port’ to use for telemetry for.

Following Mavlink example: PX4-Autopilot/module.yaml at main · PX4/PX4-Autopilot · GitHub

Answer: Telem2 and all are generated for each board in a different file (?) by a python script, and that should be used, instead of defining in the parameters itself.

P.1 : FW Rate Control PR

  • Wheel control: will be dealt with along with ECL

:thinking: General Discussions

D.1 : X500 V2 Documentation - Farhang

There’s 2 X500 V2 documentation. This is confusing.

We can merge these docs?

Holybro sells X500 V2 with Pixhawk 6C.

D.2: X500 V2 Actuators / Tuning - Farhang

Discord thread: Discord

For Pixhawk 6C, the IO vs FMU pinout can be confusing.

D.3: PX4 IO & FMU output confusion

IO and FMU are labeled ‘MAIN’ and ‘AUX’ in the products, this is confusing.

Related to the thread above (regarding X500 V2).
