I am new to the UAV community and I am very excited about the possibilities. I am learning a lot....steep learning curve.
I received my new ArduIMU V2 and ublox GS407 (with DIYdrones adapter board, preprogramed for ArduPilot) via UPS thursday!! Today was my first opportunity to work with the components. I soldered the header on for the FTDI connection, attached the ublox adapter and cable to the GPS port on the ArduIMU board, connected the FTDI cable and observed the pwr light come on then the rapid sequence of yellow, blue and red blinking lights. After about 15 seconds the yellow light came on steady. Then I waited........20 minuted later no blue GPS lock light. Hmmmmm......GPS is warm to the touch so it's getting pwr, connection seems good, antennae is pointed skyward.
I uploaded ArduIMU code v 1.5, same result. When I ran groundtest.vi all the analog data from the gyros and accelerometers are streaming, but no GPS data. I then decided to move outside. I reset the IMU and waited another 20 minutes and still no GPS lock.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
