I have a full ardupilot with everything but the xbees as they are not in stock.
I have the relay wired to my camera and when I trigger the relay it takes one pic.
I have the defult mode of the ardupilot set to auto. I have the mission planner option for do_repete_relay set to 100 cycles each every 10 sec. I write the mission to the board but it dosent start.
How do I start the replay repeating?
The mission will only start once you enable AUTO mode while flying, or on the ground (with auto-takeoff)
I dont think you can run AUTO mode as "default" as in auto mode you have no control over the quad
Also im not sure if the APM will start a mission without any RC input. Eg. to start a mission, the quad needs to be armed (flying) or on the ground, where u need to give 10-15% throttle to start the mission...
I have it defaulting to auto mode.
Ill try auto take off as the 1st command,
I'm using this as a data logging unit for now, so the rc parts are totally separate.
If you arent using RC, then i think you have to start the mission via APM Planner...
Im still not 100% sure if you can start a mission without arming first...
