Anybody load this yet? If so how do you like it?
I had watched some of the Ardupilot 3.6 lecture, about 95% of it was over my head (pardon the pun) but I did catch that whole thing about Chibios using up a heck of a lot less resources.Wow this made it here quick. I just put the Chibios one up on Solex yesterday!
The 3.6-RC6 package available on Solex and SidePIlot (Not the chibios one) is working well. There are few things that are not yet compatible with the vehicle setting sliders in Solex and SidePilot since a few speed parameter changed. But I made sure the defaults on those parameters were safe and reasonable so it flies nice. You get EKF3, Smart RTL and Leonard's new loiter (fly mode). All of which are very nice.
The Chibios version is a bit more experimental, but it is safe and stable. As you saw, there are some things still to be addressed, but none affect safety of flight. One of the biggest things is the massive improvement on system resource hogging. It takes it down from like 80% overruns to 1% overruns.
Yes, but no factory reset was performed here.So I thought with open solo, when you did a factor reset it's also supposed to reset the parameters back to the baked in defaults? (reading the open solo documentation now).
I can't find the commit message/thread about it, but this is a recent change in ArduPilot that the GCSs will have to be updated to reflect. In other words, working as intended.Since the update I'm getting my elevation (about 1100' msl) as my altitude on both Sidepilot and QGC. Is there an easy setting to change this?
