Has anyone been able to run the RTF drone with LPE setting?

Has anyone had success running with RTF drone with local position estimator? (i.e. LPE instead of EKF2)

Specifically, set param:

SYS_MC_EST_GROUP=1

(instead of default of 2)

When I try this with the rtf drone, alt-hold and other 'auto modes' of flight are erratic and twitchy.

Thanks!

Hi RandyK,

 

 

On the Intel Aero RTF Drone, we use EKF2 by default as you mention because its much better on handling vibrations. When we changed to EKF2 the drone was tuned but this was not done with LPE.

 

 

Which software version are you using? You may see better results using the latest image, but as I mentioned we have not done any work with LPE.
