    Why does the telemetry altitude steadily increase when the copter is just sitting in a room?

    @WTFDproject I know it's normal :) I saw this in many Yuneecs (all were flying fine). My question is not a troubleshooting one. My question comes from technical curiosity :). I would just like to know why. @Steve Carr interesting, because PX4 logs show graphs for barometer altitude, GPS...

    Why does the telemetry altitude steadily increase when the copter is just sitting in a room?

    Hi, I noticed that the altitude shown on the ST16S is steadily rising when the drone is just sitting here on the ground doing nothing. I thought that it's because of the rising temperature inside the enclosure (rising temperature=lower pressure), but there are two problems with this...

    Battery-optimal cruise speed?

    @AH-1G let's assume no wind, 100m AGL, 25 deg. Celsius, video yes, the drone is H520 (we are in the H520 subforum :) ). Humidity - I don't think it is going to have any noticable effect :). @Steve Carr Does it matter if it includes a return flight? (assume no wind). I don't think so, but maybe...

    Battery-optimal cruise speed?

    Hi, I will be making waypoint flights in which the drone will be covering long straight lines and I need to get the most distance out of each battery. What speed is the most battery-efficient?

    What are the differences in battery type profiles in smart chargers?

    Hi, my SkyRC Q200 and other chargers have special programs for various types of batteries - LiPo, LiHV, LiIo (the ones we are all surely familiar with), NiMH, NiCD, PB. My question is - are there any differences how these programs work, apart from different voltage values for...

    Does RTK help with electromagnetic or radio interference?

    Hi, so I think after my last thread I gained a better understanding of hiw RTK works, but I wanted to clarify one thing. RTK drones are very often advertised as great for technical inspections. I'm wondering what is the reason for this. RTK will allow for better and more precise stabilisation...

    Weather condition limits for H520

    Yuneec wrote that to me in an email.

    Weather condition limits for H520

    Yuneec informed me that it withstands winds up to 6-7 in Beaufort scale. So safe to say that it should be able to deal with 15 m/s winds. It can't be flown in rain. Temperatures are given in the specs on Yuneec's website.

    Changing the Channel settings - how to assign a chosen hardware input to a particular channel (output)?

    Thank for the input, but I figured it out on my own. And works fine, too (H920+ with V18, but with "forced team mode" as described in my first post). Turns out some channel settings cannot be changed on the existing profiles, but they can be changed on profiles that are entirely new.

    Obstetrical avoidance not working

    You will only hear it on the ground, when you place your head in front of the sensors.

    Obstetrical avoidance not working

    One thing that comes to mind is the landing gear. Try it with the landing gear in the UP position, if you haven't already. Also, some objects may reflect the ultrasound signal in a weird way. When I want to test the ultrasonic sensors in flight i hold up my ST16 controller, flat surface towards...

    Tech specs says Breeze records in .MOV and .MP4, but my videos are only .MOV. How to switch?

    Hi, it's pretty much all in the title. How do I make my breeze to record videos in MP4? Despite using an android device for control, the drone still records in the .mov format. I wasn't able to find an option like that in the settings. Do you have any ideas?

    Solution for the new update. It works.

    what kind of problem does this solve?

    Changing the Channel settings - how to assign a chosen hardware input to a particular channel (output)?

    Hi, so here is the deal: I have a H920+ here that used to be configured to work with V18, the old zoom camera (it was dedicated to the old H920). It was configured so that the pilot used an ST16 to read telemetry and steer the copter (but he had no video), and the camera operator at the same...
