Configuration and Tuning Tips with OpenPilot

The OpenPilot flight controller has many powerful features. Many of these are specific to the setup and configuration of the flight controller while others manage the controllers flight characteristics. This session will discuss many advanced features, including Acro flight (by bypassing the gyro for rotation during stronger stick deflections and applying manual output signals to the ESCs); thrust pid scaling, a mechanism to compensate for optimally-tuned vehicles for hover or slow flight envelope by adjusting the PID (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) value dynamically against a throttle position so that Fast Forward Flight (FFF) doesn't create oscillations, and failsafe for Revo and CC3D. These, plus other advanced topics will be presented during this class.

  54. Fail Safe Mode

  55. SmartSafe™ prevents unexpected motor startup when connecting the battery and

    shuts off the motor if the signal is lost. Failsafe positions for all channels are stored during binding. If the receiver is turned on before the transmitter, the receiver will not output a signal to the throttle channel, preventing the ESC from arming. When the transmitter is turned on and the throttle is placed in the low throttle position, the receiver transmits a low throttle signal to the throttle channel, allowing the speed control to arm. After connection, if the signal is lost, the throttle will go to its preset failsafe position (low throttle), while all other channels will hold their last command.
