Ok I have been trying and tring everything to get my alt hold to work. and I have been getting very little help, I am about out of time. I have to have this copter ready to go in less then 24 hours. How do I revert back to ver. 2.0.46, it worked pretty good for alt hold. IIf anyone wants e-mail me direct and I can give you my phne # and work on it in real time. firstname.lastname@example.org or skype. but please need help asap, to get this up and running .
Is there anyone out there that is willing to help me with the problems I am having over the phone. It is easier for me to explain what the copter is doing over the phone, also helps walk me through this. Or even skype. I see there is a ton of you on here that have perfectly working copters or working good.. So I am pleading , for someone to take the time and help me get this thing alt holding . I have been able to get both my copters to fly, and alt hold with sonar, but not baro. I have tried to post a screen shot but I am not sure if it was the right screen shot. I have arond 15 hours to get these up and going with the baro.
If things worked with 2.0.46, and you have little time, I agree that you should go back to that version. If Arduino does not compile the code without errors, it's probably because it uses wrong libraries. Easy fix:
Download Arduino and unzip to a new folder: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
Download AC 2.0.46 http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/downloads/list
Unzip AC 2.0.46, put the files in a new folder on your desktop, keep it separated from the Arduino folder!
In the folder you placed on the desktop, browse to ArduCopter2.0.46/ArduCopter/. Right click the arducopter.pde file and choose to open with --> Arduino.exe.
Compile and upload to your board.
Connect with missionplanner, reset board and setup everything.
also the problem is the missin planner I have won't read ver 2.0.46. won't bring up half the settings. I will try the adrino thing again. I just donloaded it a third time. and it is still coming up with errors.
Ok tried it same errors. this is what it says. in adrino when I compile. 'AP_int16' does not name a type
Have you chosen the correct board in Arduino? Tools-Board- ArduinoMega1280/2560
I did do that. also what about the mission planner, how do I get a version to work with the 2.0.46. and I keep trying and keep coming up with the errors. for both copters.
No matter what board and processor I choose it keeps giving me that does not name a type error. in the code.
is there anyway i can call you. or skype?
Sorry, I'm at work, too busy. And I'm no kind of expert on this..
If you want you could bring up a remote session so I can take a look. But don't promise anything.
PM me ID and password.
I sent you a friend request so i can send you the info. you need to accept the request.
well after finally getting 2.0.46 back on still had problems with both quads. so I oped for the newest version one more time, and I changed a few things around ant started with no sonar. and for some reason it worked. and when I added the sonar. I had to lower my PI for the alt hold to get it to work pretty good above 10 feet. now the weird thing I did the same for my second copter, and added the sonar. and didn't have to make much adjustments. and it is working almost perfect. so I don't know what I did but both copter are working good now. I want to thak all who helped, and sorry for my many posts. alll in all I am really happy with the arducopter it is now one of my favorites.
