I am the newbie and here again.
This time I have an Xbee connection failure.
I use xbee pro 900 wire antenna and an adafruit adapter board on the arducopter side, along with an xbee Pro 900 RPSMA. I setup the Xbee modules according to the wiki through using X-CTU. The result is the same as what it should look like as in the wiki.
But the connection does not work at all when I test it. Nothing comes from the serial port monitor of arduino IDE. I am sure the port is correct. Nothing comes when I use the test demo code either.
Can anyone help? Thanks.
I'm at this point too, would appreaciate any advice/things to try! :)
Ill try and help .
first thing first (sorry if im repeating the manual but lets get on the same page )
1) is your firmware version 1061?
2) are you set to 57600?
3) is your APm planner software set to the correct comport and baud rate I.e 57600?
4) does the loopback test work in CTU program ?
Hi Johann, I've had firmware version on 1161 as well as 1061, in both cases the sender/receiver have matching firmware versions set to 57600 on the devices and 57600 within APM. I haven't tried the loopback test and am going to have a play with that today.
I've been following the wiki to the letter. Thanks for your help.
