@Warren http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-loading-firmware-onto-pixha... Keep in mind that the last firmware compatible with APM are Copter 3.2.1 and Plane 3.3.0.

I want to upgrade to the last supported firmware for an APM. Could someone advise where I find the file please?

Im having a slight problem with my GPS unit. It's a NEO 6m. It was working fine before i updated its config file. Last night i upgraded its config file using the instructions written on wiki. It was all good then I checked mission planner. GPS is now getting more than 9 Satellite( im getting 11 now). When i checked my GPS. Its just solid blue now. The red or orange (sorry im colorblind) is not blinking anymore. Before, the LED is blinking if there's already a 3D fix.How can I make those LED blink again ? I checked mission planner, it has 3d fix but the led is not blinking.

Thank's for fast response Stephen, is like the servo connectors? I try but it's looks that plastic tab doesn't move? they looks different, I'm going to share a photo.

Thomas, I hope you need this tool http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__13446__HobbyKing_JST_SH_... you can find in electronics shop too and the pins too

Comment by Thomas Stanley-Jones on March 18, 2016 at 7:52am
Along the lines of Cala's question, I would like to make my own wires for Jr connectors and Df connectors, but I haven't been able to figure out what the crimp tool is or where to get the pins that go on the end of the wires. Can someone point me in the right direction?

@Cala an exacto knife can be used to get under the plastic tab on the front of the connector and let the pin slide out.

Comment by Cala on March 18, 2016 at 7:27am

I'm installing the Lidar Lite, and have two wires that don't use, how can I remove them from molex connector without cutting them?

@Darius,

I have no relation with the Barcelona Drone Center, just wanted to share their installations that are quite nice.

Regarding your project of CORS stations, please note that the hardware and sofware are available since 2012, so just let us know, whenever you want. Just drop a lite at emea@northgps.com and we can help you with the design and setup. I'll forward your email so you can talk with technical sales.

Regarding your rover, if you can feed 7-14VDC, then there is no problem to integrate the RTK on it.

Comment by Darius Jack on February 26, 2016 at 8:20am

@Bernardo Espinosa,

I would like to join BarcelonaDroneCenter with my OpenFabLab

since   

http://www.barcelonadronecenter.com/

is solar powered.

I would like to set up 2 CORS reference ground stations, based on your L1/L2 and another based on L1 RTK GPS

to study L1 vs. L1/L2 GPS ionospheric and tropospheric errors.

Please email me when your L1/L2 is available and what hardware/software is required to make it work as a public, open CORS ground reference station ( web server, router, WiFi, 3G).

I would like to test solar-powered self-driven rover, receiving high accuracy RTK GPS geolocation data to follow the preset track.

BTW

I develop  solar chargers,  solar power banks, solar powered carts, solar powered add-on rickshaws (single person), assemble lightweight semi-flexible solar panels to match the size, vattage and voltage output on request.
