tk3-mikrokopter 1.8.2 released

Added by Anthony Mallet almost 4 years ago

Changes

  • Fix SMC error computation (32 bits -> 16 bits conversion), preventing from triggering dynamic braking
  • Drop the hardcoded minimum PWM limit in open-loop control mode (now automatically switches to closed loop control when the velocity drops below ~15Hz)
  • Limit peak voltage due to dynamic braking to 23V (hardcoded conservative limit for the MKBL2.0 hardware).

tk3-mikrokopter 1.6.1 released

Added by Anthony Mallet about 5 years ago

Changes

  • Increase the maximum allowed startup current (to 6A)
  • Make the flight controller start timeout proportional to the number of motors
  • Add a visual communication bandwidth staturation flag on the flight controller
  • Always activate dynamic braking when spinning velocity is above ~16Hz (instead of every other period)
  • Smooth a bit more the spinning velocity measurement
  • Improve a bit the velocity controller response time
  • Reset the spinning direction to + when stopping

tk3-mikrokopter 1.6 released

Added by Anthony Mallet over 5 years ago

Changes

  • Document the 'watchdog' brushless parameter
  • Implement motor reversing capability. /!\ this breaks (slightly) the communication protocol: spinning velocities in control messages are now defined as the half of the period (so that the signed quantity still fits on 16 bits with the same range).
  • Explicitly fail to boot if some EEPROM parameters are not set
