3.1​ Can I make an automatic control script with a given RPM or thrust input?

In general, the automatic script control allows output to the stand through the throttle (%). If you wish to make a close-loop control to hold or to achieve a certain level of thrust or RPM, please follow this guideline.

Unfortunately, we do not have a published script example for the PID script control. You may modify this example script and write from there, but it may not work without modification, since every powertrain has different time constants:

We also recommend reading the RCbenchmark GUI library and API before programming located under the Automatic Control tab:
