Phoebe’s perceived flight path

She thinks she drifted consistently to the right by 0.6m and backwards by 0.35m before recovering back to 0m.

But that’s not how I saw it!  I’m sure she drifted slowly towards me – in fact, a lot like if I flipped the graph thus →

So I need to do one or more of the following…

  • static sensor tuning as well as the dynamic she does per flight to correct her perception
  • find the bug in the diagnostics which swapped the X and Y axis
  • find the bug in the code which flipped the X and Y axes.

Not sure which yet – I think I need to watch a few more test flights to be really confident of the difference between mine and Phoebe’s point of view.
