I'm using latest arduplane firmware and planner and have downloaded and Write Params to my APM1.x installed in a skywalker.
Now I want to make sure I understand failsafe but the directions seems confusing.
Here talks about it but doesn't say what parameters such as FS_SHORT_ATN, etc need to be set. In the downloaded skywalker parameter file they came as 0 in most of the ones related to failsafe.
Here the various parameters associated with failsafe say it should be set to 1
So how exactly should these be set to have the default behavior of circling for 20 seconds and then RTL.
any other ones I need to set and should all these be set to 1?
I second these questions.
FS_GCS_ENABL = 0
FS_LONG_ACTN = 1
FS_SHORT_ACTN = 1
THR_FAILSAFE = 1
Thanks. I see GCS is ground control station so does enabling it mean if I'm using xbees and there is a loss of communication on my xbee 900MHz then it will start the RTL action?
|FS_GCS_ENABLE - 0 = Off, 1 = On, If the GCS heartbeat is lost for 20 seconds, the plane will Return to Launch|
As i've explained in my last thread ( http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/failsafe-issues ).
I've made some testing and I had the same issue.
I think failsafe must be the more reliable function, but it isn't yet.
It works but "sometimes" it doesn't
Same issue with the RTL. (long failsafe)
