Howdy DIYDrones. I'm presently working on a university research project with a few other students integrating a PixArt IR sensor from a Nintendo Wiimote with ArduPlane. I'm using version 2.24 of the…Continue
The best place to look for system configuration information is in the APM source code. The configuration register settings for the MPU6000 are in the AP_InertialSensor_MPU6000 class; if you cross-reference the register settings with the…"
"I've bought a good number of 3dr boards, and I haven't yet found one I can't use. I've even been buying up old boards on Buy, Sell, Trade.
Since the 1280 has become a pain with the current ArduPlane, ArduCopter, they still…"
"Most people use APM 2 for copters, which cannot be controlled manually, so a direct PWM pass-through doesn't make any sense. For planes, APM 1 is still great platform and performs essentially identically to APM 2, so that might be a better…"
"The PWM output to the servos is still through the 2560 though. Even before we started modifying the APM software for our own uses, we can't prove that the APM core software can't encounter a critical exception. One of our teams made their…"
"@Justin Stiltner, same here. We were in the middle of a flight test project when these rules were first issued. The project was delayed over a year for the application process! We can only fly over our private airport (83TX).
"Ok, are you guys doing 2-way with the GCS or just reading the outbound data stream? If it's just out from the auto pilot, you might want to try a simple ArduPilot Legacy stream which would be easy to maintain."
"I'm one of the people working on the GCS end, and I did most of the implementation of the message definitions and UI widget. There aren't any specific technical problems we've had with the GCS itself. The maintainability problems…"
