Auto-throttle

Postby icebear » Fri Aug 30, 2013 9:31 am

Hi,

I tested the new "minimium speed" functionality of auto-throttle and found that my Popwing suffers a bit from the change in throttle while navigating (more oscillation in roll).

When I set min speed to "0" i expected the throttle to be unaffected by slower upwind speed but even when the speed is 20-30 kph in turns, there is a throttle response.

Is there a way to completely shut of this feature and still have auto-throttle active?

Thanks,

Björn

Weird it affects the roll of your wing... I didn't think anybody would need to turn it off...

Attached a new version that might fix some issues. Could you try this one?

OK,
Sorry for the late response - I missed your answer...
WIll try it tomorrow!
The reason for it affection roll is that when wing slows down in a turn and then a sudden increase in throttle makes the wing turn too much.
Cheers, Björn
