Apparent Joystick Calibration Bug

Hey everyone, very excited about my new Herelink! I am getting it set up and it appears as though the RC pitch is reversed. After doing the joystick calibration (software and hardware) I noticed that pushing forward caused an increase in PWM indicated in Mission Planner. After a while of looking for a way to reverse the channels in the herelink, I ended up just re-doing the calibration and pushing the pitch in the reverse directions. This seems to have solved the issue, as a props off motor test has the correct motors spinning up and down.

Is there something I missed that should have been done to prevent this?

@sidbh thoughts?

You can reverse rc 3 in parameters to fix that would be better than calibrating backwards.

I considered doing this but preferred to just fix it in the transmitter, since that is how I would do it if I were using any other transmitter.

I flew today with no issues at all, it was great. Spring tension on this sticks is quite a bit more than i’m used to and I put in a little expo (which I don’t use on my Taranis), but great otherwise.

I am glad you got this working, but I am having the same problem and nothing I do seems to give me the correct reverse pitch in Arducopter. I have tried everything. No matter what combination of joystick/radio calibration in HereLink, and RC2 settings in Arducopter, I get the pitch stick forward, pwm increase. Maddening. I can’t fly this bird and I’m frustrated. Any help of suggestions would be most appreciated.

You can reverse any channel in Ardupilot
Please describe what mode you are testing this in etc
