First up im very grateful for all the support documentation , without which i wouldnt have gotten this far , with my build.
Im having a few issues (probably just my stupidity ) with the APM setup process .
I got my APM board and Oilpan(2.2) about a month ago .I finished assembly and ran the blinking LED program , and also the servo dance program (which seems fine to me.)
The APM Beta Code is currently loaded on my board , last evening i took it outside to test the GPS LED behavior .
This is the behavior i got :
- Fast flashing - cablibrating gyros.
- BC go solid for 2-3 seconds - pause.
- A and BC flash alternating - rotation flashing.
- ABC flash slowly - waiting for GPS lock.
- B Solid ,C Flashing (for about 2 minutes)
- Then B and C solid.
Ive Included a picture showing my APM running on the Receiver battery .I hadnt done the radio setup before this .
I then connected the APM via usb and ran a gps test , the test confirmed that the home coordinates were accurate.
im wondering why didnt the A LED glow solid.
This morning i proceeded to the radio setup :
This is how the RX is connected to the APM
THRO == IN2
AILE == IN0
ELEV == IN1
RUDD == IN3
AUX1 == IN7 (even tried AUX2)
This is my show output:
CH1: 900 | 1520
CH2: 1200 | 2100
CH3: 900 | 1916
CH4: 1096 | 1902
CH5: 1000 | 2000
CH6: 1000 | 2000
CH7: 1000 | 2000
CH8: 1000 | 2000
when i tried setting up the mode, the 'pos' value did not change when i flipped the 3 way switch. (APM detected the inputs on my Aile channel in order to scroll through the available modes , but i couldnt change the switch position.
