This is a complete list of the parameters which can be set (e.g. via the MAVLink protocol) to control vehicle behaviour. They are stored in persistent storage on the vehicle.

This list is automatically generated from the latest ardupilot source code, and so may contain parameters which are not yet in the stable released versions of the code.

AntennaTracker Parameters

FORMAT_VERSION: Eeprom format version number

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

This value is incremented when changes are made to the eeprom format

YAW_SLEW_TIME: Time for yaw to slew through its full range

This controls how rapidly the tracker will change the servo output for yaw. It is set as the number of seconds to do a full rotation. You can use this parameter to slow the trackers movements, which may help with some types of trackers. A value of zero will allow for unlimited servo movement per update.

PITCH2SRV_SMAX: Pitch slew rate limit

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

Sets an upper limit on the slew rate produced by the combined P and D gains. If the amplitude of the control action produced by the rate feedback exceeds this value, then the D+P gain is reduced to respect the limit. This limits the amplitude of high frequency oscillations caused by an excessive gain. The limit should be set to no more than 25% of the actuators maximum slew rate to allow for load effects. Note: The gain will not be reduced to less than 10% of the nominal value. A value of zero will disable this feature.

AHRS_ Parameters

AHRS_GPS_GAIN: AHRS GPS gain

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

AHRS_GPS_USE: AHRS use GPS for DCM navigation and position-down

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

This controls whether to use dead-reckoning or GPS based navigation. If set to 0 then the GPS won't be used for navigation, and only dead reckoning will be used. A value of zero should never be used for normal flight. Currently this affects only the DCM-based AHRS: the EKF uses GPS according to its own parameters. A value of 2 means to use GPS for height as well as position - both in DCM estimation and when determining altitude-above-home.

AHRS_ORIENTATION: Board Orientation

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

Overall board orientation relative to the standard orientation for the board type. This rotates the IMU and compass readings to allow the board to be oriented in your vehicle at any 90 or 45 degree angle. The label for each option is specified in the order of rotations for that orientation. This option takes affect on next boot. After changing you will need to re-level your vehicle. Firmware versions 4.2 and prior can use a CUSTOM (100) rotation to set the AHRS_CUSTOM_ROLL/PIT/YAW angles for AHRS orientation. Later versions provide two general custom rotations which can be used, Custom 1 and Custom 2, with CUST_ROT1_ROLL/PIT/YAW or CUST_ROT2_ROLL/PIT/YAW angles.

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

Enables automatic adjustment of ARSPD_RATIO during a calibration flight based on estimation of ground speed and true airspeed. New ratio saved every 2 minutes if change is > 5%. Should not be left enabled.

ARSPD_TUBE_ORDER: Control pitot tube order

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

This parameter allows you to control whether the order in which the tubes are attached to your pitot tube matters. If you set this to 0 then the first (often the top) connector on the sensor needs to be the stagnation pressure (the pressure at the tip of the pitot tube). If set to 1 then the second (often the bottom) connector needs to be the stagnation pressure. If set to 2 (the default) then the airspeed driver will accept either order. The reason you may wish to specify the order is it will allow your airspeed sensor to detect if the aircraft is receiving excessive pressure on the static port compared to the stagnation port such as during a stall, which would otherwise be seen as a positive airspeed.

Number of standard deviations applied to the re-enable EKF consistency check that is used when ARSPD_OPTIONS bit position 3 is set. Larger values will make the re-enabling of the airspeed sensor faster, but increase the likelihood of re-enabling a degraded sensor. The value can be tuned by using the ARSP.TR log message by setting ARSP_WIND_GATE to a value that is higher than the value for ARSP.TR observed with a healthy airspeed sensor. Occasional transients in ARSP.TR above the value set by ARSP_WIND_GATE can be tolerated provided they are less than 5 seconds in duration and less than 10% duty cycle.

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

Enable or disable the automatic learning of compass offsets. You can enable learning either using a compass-only method that is suitable only for fixed wing aircraft or using the offsets learnt by the active EKF state estimator. If this option is enabled then the learnt offsets are saved when you disarm the vehicle. If InFlight learning is enabled then the compass with automatically start learning once a flight starts (must be armed). While InFlight learning is running you cannot use position control modes.

COMPASS_ORIENT: Compass orientation

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

The orientation of the first external compass relative to the vehicle frame. This value will be ignored unless this compass is set as an external compass. When set correctly in the northern hemisphere, pointing the nose and right side down should increase the MagX and MagY values respectively. Rolling the vehicle upside down should decrease the MagZ value. For southern hemisphere, switch increase and decrease. NOTE: For internal compasses, AHRS_ORIENT is used. The label for each option is specified in the order of rotations for that orientation. Firmware versions 4.2 and prior can use a CUSTOM (100) rotation to set the COMPASS_CUS_ROLL/PIT/YAW angles for Compass orientation. Later versions provide two general custom rotations which can be used, Custom 1 and Custom 2, with CUST_1_ROLL/PIT/YAW or CUST_2_ROLL/PIT/YAW angles.

COMPASS_EXTERNAL: Compass is attached via an external cable

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

Configure compass so it is attached externally. This is auto-detected on most boards. Set to 1 if the compass is externally connected. When externally connected the COMPASS_ORIENT option operates independently of the AHRS_ORIENTATION board orientation option. If set to 0 or 1 then auto-detection by bus connection can override the value. If set to 2 then auto-detection will be disabled.

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

The orientation of a second external compass relative to the vehicle frame. This value will be ignored unless this compass is set as an external compass. When set correctly in the northern hemisphere, pointing the nose and right side down should increase the MagX and MagY values respectively. Rolling the vehicle upside down should decrease the MagZ value. For southern hemisphere, switch increase and decrease. NOTE: For internal compasses, AHRS_ORIENT is used. The label for each option is specified in the order of rotations for that orientation. Firmware versions 4.2 and prior can use a CUSTOM (100) rotation to set the COMPASS_CUS_ROLL/PIT/YAW angles for Compass orientation. Later versions provide two general custom rotations which can be used, Custom 1 and Custom 2, with CUST_1_ROLL/PIT/YAW or CUST_2_ROLL/PIT/YAW angles.

Sampling mode (and therefore rate). 0: Gyro rate sampling, 1: Fast loop rate sampling, 2: Fast loop rate / 2 sampling, 3: Fast loop rate / 3 sampling. Takes effect on reboot.

Range

0 to 4

FFT_WINDOW_SIZE: FFT window size

Note: This parameter is for advanced users
Note: Reboot required after change

Size of window to be used in FFT calculations. Takes effect on reboot. Must be a power of 2 and between 32 and 512. Larger windows give greater frequency resolution but poorer time resolution, consume more CPU time and may not be appropriate for all vehicles. Time and frequency resolution are given by the sample-rate / window-size. Windows of 256 are only really recommended for F7 class boards, windows of 512 or more H7 class.

Range

32 to 1024

FFT_WINDOW_OLAP: FFT window overlap

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

Note: This parameter is for advanced users
Note: Reboot required after change

FFT harmonic fit frequency threshold percentage at which a signal of the appropriate frequency is determined to be the harmonic of another. Signals that have a harmonic relationship that varies at most by this percentage are considered harmonics of each other for the purpose of selecting the harmonic notch frequency. If a match is found then the lower frequency harmonic is always used as the basis for the dynamic harmonic notch. A value of zero completely disables harmonic matching.

Range

0 to 100

FFT_HMNC_PEAK: FFT harmonic peak target

Note: This parameter is for advanced users

The FFT harmonic peak target that should be returned by FTN1.PkAvg. The resulting value will be used by the harmonic notch if configured to track the FFT frequency. By default the appropriate peak is auto-detected based on the harmonic fit between peaks and the energy-weighted average frequency on roll on pitch is used. Setting this to 1 will always target the highest energy peak. Setting this to 2 will target the highest energy peak that is lower in frequency than the highest energy peak. Setting this to 3 will target the highest energy peak that is higher in frequency than the highest energy peak. Setting this to 4 will target the highest energy peak on the roll axis only and only the roll frequency will be used (some vehicles have a much more pronounced peak on roll). Setting this to 5 will target the highest energy peak on the pitch axis only and only the pitch frequency will be used (some vehicles have a much more pronounced peak on roll).

INS_HNTC2_REF: Harmonic Notch Filter reference value

Note: This parameter is for advanced users
Note: Reboot required after change

A reference value of zero disables dynamic updates on the Harmonic Notch Filter and a positive value enables dynamic updates on the Harmonic Notch Filter. For throttle-based scaling, this parameter is the reference value associated with the specified frequency to facilitate frequency scaling of the Harmonic Notch Filter. For RPM and ESC telemetry based tracking, this parameter is set to 1 to enable the Harmonic Notch Filter using the RPM sensor or ESC telemetry set to measure rotor speed. The sensor data is converted to Hz automatically for use in the Harmonic Notch Filter. This reference value may also be used to scale the sensor data, if required. For example, rpm sensor data is required to measure heli motor RPM. Therefore the reference value can be used to scale the RPM sensor to the rotor RPM.

Harmonic Notch Filter options. Triple and double-notches can provide deeper attenuation across a wider bandwidth with reduced latency than single notches and are suitable for larger aircraft. Dynamic harmonics attaches a harmonic notch to each detected noise frequency instead of simply being multiples of the base frequency, in the case of FFT it will attach notches to each of three detected noise peaks, in the case of ESC it will attach notches to each of four motor RPM values. Loop rate update changes the notch center frequency at the scheduler loop rate rather than at the default of 200Hz. If both double and triple notches are specified only double notches will take effect.
