Sorry, posted this inadvertantly in quite the wrong section before
.Can anybody help me ? I have recently uploaded Arduplane 2.28 to my APM v1 2650. I uploaded waypoints and geo-fence data to it using Mission Planner 1.1.26 but now I have a problem. I do not see the leds flashing for the imu calibration after start up – the APM goes straight to LED A (green) solid. I cannot get attitude data back to MP either via the USB link or by telemetry (neither does it work with the HK GCS). If I run an IMU test with the CLI/Terminal program I seem to get sensible data. All other aspects of the APM seem to function correctly i.e. writing/reading the eeprom , running tests for other functions under CLI, ppm input and servo operation.
What could have gone wrong?
Did you clear the EEPROM after the upload?
Just a thought.
Thanks for the suggestion but, alas, I've already tried that. Looks like I need a new APM board
Well I've persevered. Erased the 2560 chip and re-installed bootloader. Re-loaded AP v 2.28 with Mission Planner - same problem!
But here's the odd thing:
I loaded the Arducopter code (also using MP) and hey presto the board functions perfectly. IMU data shows up on MP screen and telem works.
I go back to Arduplane and - yes you guessed it - back to the same problem.
I begins to look to me as if it's a code/MP problem and not the APM board at all.
Has anyone else experienced this, or does anybody have an idea as to what could be going wrong ?
At least I know that I don't need a new APM board.
