Rui, the test you are doing is to set IR_NEUTRAL values. When all the sensors are covered with foam they are at (almost) the same temperature, so you should get 0 for all values. If not, change the ADC_(IR1,IR2,TOP)_NEUTRAL in your airframe conf file. Then go outside without covering the sensors, check the maximum value in all the 6 directions (put your aircraft in the right position, on the back, on the nose, on the tail, on the left wing and on the right wing). If the maximums are high enough and with the same order of magnitude, your PFD should work fine.


Todd Sandercock a écrit :
Looks like your vertical data is fine. when there is no differential in the vertical sensor it can't really work out which way up is so the PFD goes crazy. Put your finger underneath the vertical sensor and see what happens.

I'm facing problems with my IR sensors.
You can see this video, where I show the problem:
I have the foam on the sensors and the vertical data is crazy.
What I'm doing wrong? Best regards
