I am hoping someone may be able to help me figure out some issues with an Ardupilot Ptoject!
First off, here is a list of my equipment:
Ardupilot Arduino ATMega328 Board (red board)
Shield V2 kit (blue board)
EM-406A USGlobalSat GPS
Spektrum Dx6i transmitter, Spektrum AR6110e reciever
Attopilot XYZ sensors (from DIYdrones)
Electrifly C-55 Mini ESC
I have been following step by step from the Ardupilot 2.X manual step by step.
Upon initial power, the boards power (red), gps (blue), and stat (orange) LEDs all came on and blinked.
I loaded the Easystar Ardupilot_24 using the FTDI cable from DIYdrones and got the "Done uploading" message from the Arduino software, so I assume this was done successfully.
After loading the Ardupilot_24, I connected the gps and the Ardupilot blue LED stopped flashing completely, and the red light on the EM-406A came on brightly and began to flash. The blue LED will not turn on when the GPS is plugged in.
If I power on the Arupilot board with no gps and the bind plug, the blue LED flashes rapidly after a couple seconds.
If I power on the Ardupilot with no gps and no bind plug, the blue LED will do nothing.
Also, the orange STAT light on the Ardupilot board seems to come on at random times.
The toggle between manual, autopilot 1, and autopilot 2 is also giving me some trouble... what is the best way to do this with no 3 toggle switch on the transmitter? The way I have two channels mixed now allows me to manually affect the servos regardless of the position.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
