Re: [Paparazzi-devel] Rotocraft: Increase in psi while switching into HO

Hi Simon,

when entering hover, the heading RC setpoint is set to current the heading in guidance_h_hover_enter:
As long as you don't change the heading via RC, that initial heading when entering hover is applied as cmd_heading in guidance_h_run:

So it would make sense to plot the estimated heading together with cmd_heading (e.g. psi from ROTORCRAFT_FP).
My guess is that your (estimated) heading drifted between switches....

What I don't understand is that guidance_h_heading_sp (sent as cmd_heading in HOVER_LOOP) changes even when you switch from KILL to HOVER.
But the only two instances where this variable is updated (apart from initialization to zero) is in guidance_h_run if you are in HOVER or NAV mode.
Did you make any changes that could impact this?

I can take a look at the logs if you upload them somewhere...

Cheers, Felix

Hello all,

During last flight session I noticed the quad turning clockwise every time I switched into hover mode. The logs seem to support my observation (see screenshot).

Anyone who noticed something like this before? I was expecting HOVER_Z_HOLD to keep the heading when entering this mode.
