Hi droners. First, please apologize if I'm repeating someone else's problem, and please direct me to the solution if there is one.
The problem is that each time I set up a new configuration (APM and/or airframe), I usually do most of the configuration through the CLI and then I have to use the Mission Planner to tweak a few parameters (usually to reverse one or more servos). I usually build from source code in the Arduino IDE and use that program's serial monitor to enter the CLI.
I don't like using the MissionPlanner as I don't have a dedicated windoze machine so I have an emulated windoze (in VirtualBox) that runs the MissionPlanner really slowly. MissionPlanner also exhibits a few other annoyances (such as having to remove the prop(s) for radio setup and most recently - v1.1.97 - it connects super slowly). Also, I don't like to use a ground station, as I've moved away from dedicated telemetry and now like to just fly with an OSD. Additionally, I used to use QGroundControl with the older (Arduplane 2.24) firmware but it doesn't work with MAVLink 1.0 yet. At least, I can't run the latest QGroundControl and the development community seems to be waning.
What I want to do is tweak those one or two parameters using the CLI. I can already view the parameter list in the CLI; why can't I edit it? Or can I?
I propose to add a feature to the CLI that allows me to tweak parameters. I'd like to be able to enter a command such as:
tweak sr3_extra1 2
and have it update. I would also implement a function where you can use the list of parameters (currently implemented in the CLI) and be able to copy-paste it into the CLI to update a new configuration to match an old configuration.
I understand the user base for such a feature would be small, as many (most?) users now use MissionPlanner, but I doubt I'd be the only user.
Comments, questions, concerns, ideas?
