Can't get a solid flowhold

#1

Hey all,

I’m looking for tips on getting a solid flowhold mode implemented. I’m running a black cube with the latest beta firmware and the hereflow with default FHLD settings. It’s a quadcopter running 13" props. In loiter it flies great. When I put it in flowhold mode, it tends to do very small “toiletbowling”. Any tips for tuning for a solid flowhold? Thanks!

I’ve had problems with FlowHold. I don’t think it is ready to be used yet, honestly. It has some bad behaviors that can cause instability. I tested this extensively: https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot/issues/11026

Using optiflow in Loiter is the better choice, even if the rangefinder is out of range.

I duplicated this reply on your Ardupilot forum post. We’ll probably get more traffic there.
