Parameters don't affect flight characteristics

Postby Oceanfrog » 04 Dec 2014 07:11

Hi, I'm testing the demo of Heli-X to see if the existing model of a Phantom quadcopter can emulate the characteristics of a TBS Discovery.

I've adjusted parameters, but they don't seem to be having any effect on the flight characteristics.
As a test, I reduced MultiplicatorRotorLift to 0.2, increased Mass to 200, increased GroundEffectExponent to 50, then restarted Heli-X and the model still flies normally, which it shouldn't.

OS: OS X 10.9.5
Path of file I'm editing: /Library/HELI-X5/resources/models/helicopter/Phantom/Phantom.xml

Thanks for your help.

Hi

You can not edit parameters in the Demo.
In the full version however you may be very close to the TBS Disco already with the DJI F450 model (see attached preview). That is already very close to the TBS in terms of characteristics and looks - you can even change the arm color to black, white or yellow to match your real Discovery.

Regards

Very happy with the sim so far, although after increasing mass to 1.8kg I'm having trouble increasing the power to normal levels.

I've toyed around with increasing PitchAngleMinMax and/or MultiplicatorRotorLift, and although it increases power, it causes this strange side effect:
When pulling the throttle to idle and falling for >3 seconds, and then increasing throttle to max, the motors don't react and continue idling, and the model falls all the way to the ground.

What are the right parameters to tune to emulate stronger motors?

Thanks for your help.
