Black Box Log help


#1

I loved my Crusader GT2 200 soo much, that I went and bought the GT2 150… So far, I can’t say I’m near as happy. Out of the box its supposed to be tuned and ready to rip. When I hooked up my receiver and opened up BF to set it up, I noticed the ACC was turned off. I went ahead and turned it on and adjusted a few things… It never flew well, so I went back in and restored the dump file and turned the ACC back off. It has a horrible vibration, it sounds horrible and the motors are getting hot within 30 sec. Its getting to the point now that I don’t want to fly it. It has black box capability, so I cleared the file and put it up in the air. Its a very short flight, not even enough time to fill the 16mb flash. I dumped the flash, but I don’t know anything about understanding the log. Can someone take a look at the BB log and see if there is enough info to tell whats going on? Here is a link to the file https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2EGeWYXIWuobjJwWlNnNzZRems

Here is a link to an older black box log that had a full flight - https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2EGeWYXIWuobjJwWlNnNzZRems

Here is the CLI dump -

I strapped my go pro on for this test flight tonight. I wanted to capture the audio specifically. Here is a link to the video. In this short time, the motors were hot. Not melt your fingers hot, but much hotter than most of my other quads after a full 4-5 min flight. https://youtu.be/aSwtuga2hec

@bubbak
Lol, sorry for laughing, this is a serious issue that I’m sure you will get resolved, but here is your link:


#4

Seems it might be my you tube that’s the problem


#5

Thanks… Yeah, I think I crashed youtube. I contacted the place I bought it from and they wanted me to run a motor test in BF. I recorded it and uploaded it to youtube this morning. The upload completed, I watched the video and was waiting for the share link so I could send them a copy. Youtube froze. I refreshed my screen and got the same monkeys…


#6

I deleted the app from my phone and reinstalled it and all is well


#7

@bubbak Your log is full of heavy mid throttle oscillations.

I’d start by updating to BF 3.1.7 if you are comfortable with that. I find little reason to stick to older builds unless you have some particular reason that you need to do so.

I suspect P is too high. In the log any time you are above mid throttle you are getting oscillations. If you see sinusoidal traces like those pictured below you need to do some tuning. That’s why you are getting hot motors… they are being asked to repeatedly speed up/down. I’ve added the motor traces to the BBlog graphs and you can see it happening.


#8

Thanks @Denovich… I normally comfortable updating firmware, but Diatone highly recommends not upgrading the firmware on the FC. Same goes for the ESC firmware. I’m heading out the door for a long weekend so I’ll play around with the pids a bit when I get back on Sunday. I tried lowering D a few ticks and it didn’t make a difference. I put it back to where it started for now. The #4 motor has a lot of vibrations in it. I ran it in BF… https://youtu.be/c6oJX00X5Wc


#9

@Denovich - I was playing around in BB with the graphs. I don’t see options for Roll, pitch, yaw as separate graphs in mine. I can do PID general which lists each. My buddy had a spare motor, so I swapped that in while I’m waiting for my replacement motor. I also turned down P on all 3. It flew a heck of a lot better. Huge difference. I’m downloading the log and see what it looks like now. I’ll post a link again for some more feedback. I’m starting to understand it a bit. What should a fine tuned machine look like? Should the waves be closer to the center axis?


#10

With a good tune you won’t see a log that looks like an earthquake on a seismograph or with any regular, sinusoidal oscillations. If you see that, adjust P and D to make them go away.

Filters have a big impact too.

I delete all the graphs then add my own. Select custom then add field by field what you want.


#11

Here is the log from last night after adjusting the pids… Looks like I still have some pretty uniform waves in spots in horizon mode. When I went into acro mode, it looks like it smooths out a bit more. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2EGeWYXIWuoM25Iemo2UmExbVU
