HI Guys , i bought Diydrones stores new ardupilot mega board ..Also I have IMU shield ..
I cant upload the data to the board...I did all recommendation ..still no luck...
1)diffrent computer .doesnt work gives upload eror
2)compileing is normal..so arduno setup is correct
3)Tried with just FTDI cable..no luck
4)Usb with IMU shield no luck
5) I am very good soldering guy..all my life i am dealing with electronics...i resodered ..no luck
6) One Option left, ..I power the board from FTDI or usb.However I dont plug any servos or rc equipment. I am using Ftdi or USB power just for uploading the program...Is this the reason can cause that issue.? OR just a Bad Board? Does anybody had issue with these boards
Thanks for the advise
What error do you see when the code will not load?
How have you been powering the board, you say one option left to power the board with FTDI or USB, it should not matter if the servos are connected when loading the code, and the power from the USB alone is enough to get the code loaded, no need for any other power supplies!
this is the famous boy i get...:))
NO LUCK..IS THIS NEW BOARDS HAS ISSUE?
Hi Dave, you are correct about the power supply:
"Because of this new protection circuitry, the USB cable will not power the RC/servo rails. You MUST supply the board with its own power (an ESC or other power source) on the benchtop if you want to connect a RC receiver or servos. This is not an issue in an aircraft, where the whole board is powered by the RC connections."
under the menue item 'tools' you find a label with the name: serial port.
does this match with the connected port!?!
one item above is an entry named 'board'.
does this match again with what the apm is?
YES .it matches....i do understand what you mean..it is correctly applied to connected COM
regards,,STILL ISSUE..I have been dealing with cncs and other motion control design and custom motion designs..this doesnt look like a issue i am missing ....any more suggestion would be appriciated before i
contact the producer..?
hi , even i am trying to upload the test program in ardupilot mega manual..which is so simple program..
i tried 100 times..couple times it uploaded...98% failure...my idea i believe before uploading , system is not reseting the board..i try to reset the board from IMU , even just red board and reseting...still failure...couple time it worked...but when you try to reload when everything is in same setup condition ..faulire again..
We know that you are frustrated with your APM board, but double posting is not going to help you arrive at a solution any faster.
Just a thought.
Oh no , I was not trying to be rude my friend.. i was just asking Chris opinion..that is all..i was sending him the link kindly to show the history of the issue.. i didint want to re write the history..
thanks for the advise though...:)))
Please contact the DIY Drones store. Nobody else is having this problem.
Double posting and writing in all caps is not the best way to get attention.
