Hi recently I sold a APM v1 with 1280 memory
the bloke I sold it to says you cannot upload the quad firmware to it using the mission planner - it says FIRMWARE IS TOO BIG FOR 1280 PLEASE UPGRADE HARDWARE
any ideas to a quick fix? Will the Mission planner be fixed to support the 1280 boards?
cheers for any replies!
It's not a planner bug. If you want to use the current version you can, but you have to build it in Arduino and disable a whole bunch of stuff so that it will fit in the smaller memory of the 1280 - in other words, you don't use the planner to upgrade a 1280 any more
Hi - thanks for replying! Do you know if anyone has written a procedure for programming the older boards.
I am up to speed using ARDUINO programmer console and understand I need the arducopter folder and libraries folder under arduino however I need a Arducopter version that will fit onto 1280.
Can anyone let me know what version arducopter I need that will fit onto the 1280 board.
thank you in advance for the kind soul who can help me install arducopter onto APM v1 1280 board.
I guess I must be the only one out there trying to fit quadcopter firmware onto a APM v1 1280? Wish I knew what sections of code I could cut out to make it fit on to 1280 memory
I have an APM 1280 and can load the most up to date arduplane or arducopter code by following Andrew Tridgell's guide:-
#define GPS_PROTOCOL GPS_PROTOCOL_MTK16 would be the key (4k savings). However, I haven't had any luck using the specific GPS definitions in many revisions of code (Issue 392 in AC Issues Log). The specification seems to work, but only if you're connected to USB...
That said, if anyone wants to manually yank their other GPS drivers, let me know.
Thanks for that, you're way ahead of me with the code, and although I did manage to get arducopter 2.6 loaded I'm afraid I've since reverted back to version 2.0.049 which fits without any tinkering.
