Before Posting an Issue

Hi All,

Before posting an issue or a problem in the ArduRover Discussion Forum, please check the wiki table of contents, review the firmware release notes in the subforum, and search that subforum for existing answers to your question. Help avoid duplicate threads by finding other members with the same issue and their solution.

When formulating your post, use a descriptive title such as "rover will not navigate to waypoints in the Auto mode" (not "HELP!" or "Problem").

Please include the following information to help diagnose your query:

  • Describe the problem you are having. What is the expected verses the observed behavior?
  • Provide hardware information such as the brand and version of your autopilot, GPS, radio, and compass, as well as any other pertinent details about your rover setup.
  • What version of the APM: ArdurRover2 firmware version are you running?
  • For navigation issues, provide your tlog and/or dataflash log. Click here for instructions on retrieving a dataflash log.

I think that it is still in the formative stage as far as I know. It might be held in Oct or Nov of this year.

Thomas J Coyle III,  What is this Bay Area AVC of which you speak?

Comment by JesseJay on June 12, 2015 at 8:03pm

Kirby G,

    I should be ready by next weekend. :)   I ran a slash 4x4 platinum last year.  I've gone "bigger" this year.   I'm not running any 3dr hardware or software but I wish you best of luck... so long as you are not in doping!  ;)

Hi Kirby G,

I decided to pass on this year's Sparkfun AVC as there seems to be an AVC possible in the San Francisco Bay area later this year and I have family in the area.

We here at the ArduRover User Group wish you good luck in this year's AVC.
