My drone is basically finished, but I still have some small problems with it.
- Battery monitor: not really working properly. I configured everything as is told in the documentation, yet it never gives me an accurate level of the battery (I’ve never seen it drop below 90%). I have Navio’s power module and a 4s 4000mAh battery, could there be something crucial I’m missing? So far I rely on the voltage (which seems to be consistently lower than the one my charger reports, even though I’m not heavily demanding any power from it except the Raspberry Pi.)
- I have configured my drone to interpret the left switch on my quanum i8 as “Brake”, so I want it to actually stay in that mode whatever I do. However, when I switch modes using the knob on the right, the quad will go out of brake mode. What I would want is the quad to stay in brake mode, letting me pick another mode, and when I turn the switch off it’ll go in the new mode. Is this possible?
- Not really a problem with the Navio, but if anyone here has insights into this I would be very thankful: I would really love to see level of the battery of my transmitter (quanum i8), but I have no idea how. Any ideas?
Apart from these small problems, it has been very fun building, flying and programming. Thanks Emlid
