Project Updates

  • Farhang was assembling, documenting and configuring the Holybro X500 V2 Kit

    Airframe configuration: Holybro X500 v2 airframe addition by farhangnaderi · Pull Request #18997 · PX4/PX4-Autopilot · GitHub
    Documentation for the build: X500 v2 Assembly docs by farhangnaderi · Pull Request #1729 · PX4/PX4-user_guide · GitHub

    Let’s review and get the support in.
    He needs some help with building QGC using docker. Must be something local since CI uses the same environment.

  • When switching to control allocation as default we have the opportunity to revise airframes to only set the parameters that are really necessary instead of also covering some opinionated configuration that was once used.

  • Thomas Stastny is contributing improved guidance for fixed-wing flying which (for now optionally) replaces the existing L1. It requires a wind estimate to unfold its advantage over L1. If the wind estimate gets lost or invalid during a mission it can still be used e.g. to not switch controller mid-flight.

  • @Jaeyoung-Lim has a draft pr to support local coordinate guidance for fixed-wing. It simplifies adjustments to the controller by quite a bit. To support accurate guidance above 100km distance between waypoints we need different calculations than now in any case.
