Is there a way to load ArduPlane on APM2 with Ardunio environment using the old ISP cable? Or any other way to load it? I cannot get it to load via the USB cable. It works with Mission Planner using the automatic firmware and USB cable and the 2560inf driver, but that way I cannot modify the program which takes out half of the fun and usability.
Try using the Arduino 022 relaxpatch version. (We don't have this problem because we compile from the command line, and can avoid Arduino's legions of bugs). If that doesn't work, you can always use a makefile.
One more thing: you are adding this line in the APM_Config.h file, right?
# define CONFIG_APM_HARDWARE APM_HARDWARE_APM2
This is in the manual here.
I think it is all ready there you just need to un remark it at the top of the APM_Config.h file.
Thanks for the tips. I am glad to see that you got your code working as well. Now we are in business...
Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!! The bad news is that I am stupid, the good news is that I am not stupid. All things were setup correctly, just missed on line in the setup guide....
Thank you Chris. Thanks to all others who also helped eliminate other potential problems. The problem was that even though I read and re-read the instructions I did not notice that I need to uncomment that line in the APM_Config.h file. Didn't even notice that line at all. It took 3 minutes to get it all working.
Now, I can start customizing it and interfacing it!
