OK guys, I finally got waypoints working and have a xbee set up with it (whoo hoo!!!)
Now moving on too my next problem I have two extra xbee pro series one that are bricked. I have scoured Google and tried every way possible to unbrick. I have tried to connect at every baud rate with no luck.. when I try the way on wikis site (http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/Quad_TelemetryPage) the error window never goes away. I have tried several times.. I tried the solution from digi's site (http://www.digi.com/wiki/developer/index.php/Bootloader_to_force_XB...) bootloader will not execute .. I am using with sparkfun explorer usb adapter and restting by jumping pin 5 RST to ground.
Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Sometimes you have to try a few times, but I've never had one not come back to life eventually. Maybe you've got one with a real hardware problem, not just corrupted firmware?
I had an xbee that I couldn't unbrick... I shipped it back to 3DRobotics where I had purchased it. They verified it was a bad unit and shipped me a postage-paid replacement. They have great service!
I later upgraded to the 3DR radio and have been happy to say it has worked absolutely perfectly since I've received it.
Same problem with me. Couldn't get it working uptil now
