When trying to calibrate my power module, I was able to update the measured voltage (12.58v), however I don't think I've been able to update the current correctly.
Starting at 2:30+ in the video you linked to, both the
battery_current params in APM never update for me - they remain at 0. The
battery_remaining params also always remain at 100 even when I know the battery is at least half depleted.
- When using my current monitor, the Amps never go above ~1.6A even with throttle at 100%. Is this ok or must I get to at least 10A as the video suggests?
- I have my propellers off entirely when testing. Must I have them on, and reversed/upside down to properly test this as the video suggests?
- Which param should I be monitoring in APM,
battery_current? It seems like the latter since
battery_voltage matches my approximate voltage and fluctuates up/down slightly during flight.
Thank you for your help!
