"I would really love to see the failsafe for the FASST systems. I've wanted to make one similar to what you described, but I have neither the time nor the skill necessary to do so. Keep up the good work."
I tried wiping the EEPROM on the Ardupilot with some code:
// write a 0 to all 512 bytes of the EEPROM
for (int i = 0; i < 512; i++)
// turn the LED on when we're done
"Just sent you a message about that.
On a side note: reading works.
I read the instructions on clicking write immediately after connecting the board, but I was unable to successfully write to the eeprom.
I would prefer not to downgrade to 2.0.1…"
"Still no dice after rebooting. I don't think the com port is being grabbed by another program because i can see the red and green tx and rx lights light up for a split second (on the FTDI board) then the board blinks green for another second…"
"I resolved the GPS issue. From my not-so-technical investigation, 2.1 does not program the GPS into binary mode. I downloaded 2.0.1 and got the GPS working there. Then I upgraded to 2.1 and the GPS worked.
I'm still lost on the Config tool…"
"I am having similar trouble. I have 2.1.1 on the Ardupilot (328) and the arduino IDE is able to read and write to the board without problem. I have selected 328 from the drop down menu and the correct COM port. I get the something is wrong error…"
"Well, I now test code and flying on this board.
It has 6 channels input and 4 channels output, thus it can process anything with 4 channels (mix, pass-though, stabilization), while last 2 channels are for controlling fly modes (manual, stabilize,…"
"Wow... I see you have already done a lot of work in the modification of the code. We just need the throttle to be passed through when the throttle is not on the failsafe, and the throttle to go to a predefined point when the failsafe is on. We…"
I just tested my theoretical auto RTL with only one failsafe channel (throttle) using a servo. It works exactly as I envisioned it would on my futaba. You should try it out on your Spektrum and make sure it works. The next part (and…"
"I suggested this on the rcgroups forums, but one option for the 2.4ghz people with only a throttle failsafe is to program the throttle failsafe to the lowest possible setting. For normal flight, you would start your esc with the throttle trim a…"
Well, I now test code and flying on this board.
It has 6 channels input and 4 channels output, thus it can process anything with 4 channels (mix, pass-though, stabilization), while last 2 channels are for controlling fly modes (manual, stabilize, rtl, autopilot).
All works very nice on single AT168.
Also failsafe for Spektrum RC works when it's switched off, it can do anything in such case. For now I let plane drop down (better than having it flown away), in future I plan to use it for RTL.
