I guess it's my turn to have a problem with my radio. I just received a new 2560 and am getting around to using it. Everything seems to work other than the radio input not getting into the APM. It passes threw just fine to the servos but no response from the autopilot.
I have gone threw the troubleshooting in the wiki and I can't believe I can't find the problem. I'm using a 9x and I've tried AP and AC code.
It's prob a duh problem but I don't have a second pair of eye's here to see the problem.
Hey Monroe, what do you mean, "It passes threw just fine to the servos but no response from the autopilot."? Could be a bad encoder. Did you try re-programming it?
So, the servos are connected to the APM, like in the picture?
I noticed the RC input #7 is connected to what looks like the battery port of the receiver. This should be connected to a toggle switch channel so that you can switch the autopilot on and off.
If it is encoder problem, you'll need to re-program by connecting the ISP port for the atmega32, and use avrdude or some other flash program.
The hex is available here.
If you'r connected via USB, I would say no. Your bps is very low and you're getting a lot of bad packets from MAVLINK.
How about swapping your old oilpan for this new oilpan. Maybe it's got a problem.
Ok, I thought you had a second oilpan. You definitely seem to have a problem with the mavlink connection. Since the USB is on the oilpan, it could be a problem there. Right now, you can only start troubleshooting and eliminating things. Could be a problem with the USB drivers too.
Also, from the console window, does it show that all 128 params were loaded?
A quick thing would to just remove and re-install the drivers.
Didn't you set up an Ubuntu system a while ago? You could try it there. On linux usbserial drivers are more a non-issue normally.
