I am having some difficulties setting up telemetry for an UAV and hope to start this post to pool some ideas.i am using APM2 with the latest firmware ArduPlane V2.50 uploaded to APM2 using mission…Continue
i got stuck on this problem, too.
i've wondered what this mean "undo the loopback wire on the APM2 side."
and the setup of xbee:
I only change 1. PAN ID 2. BD for xbee on PCand 1. PAN ID 2. DH,DL 3. BD for xbee on…"
"yes my connection is xbee-->apm2.5
and xbee-->pc (usb )
i want to connect the xbee --> pc to the mission planner and when i connect an error shows up " no heart beat found " ??i want to know something the apm telemetry gives out…"
"sry it is very misleading (the xbee -> apm -> MP part)
i meant to say xbee to apm (charge by battery)
apm to MP (connect by telemetry , xbee charge by usb)
when you connect them they should behave the same way they do when you test them in…"
"assuming you have your xbees programed correctly that you can loop back what you type to yourself using the loopback test in X-CTU
what i referred to as the loopback wire is the wire that i connect my input to my output on the xbee. i later found…"
"How to switch Xbee sparkfun xbp24 board from slave to master? Theres no switch for us to do that. And which is the loopback wire on the APM2 side? I am having the same problem as you right know even after configuring the 2 Xbees. "
"i am not sure if that will fix anything but when i look through the code.
the class AP_AHRS_QUATERNION is not included in the AP_AHRS_QUATERNION.cpp so i included that header file and many of the undefined values error disappear and left with only…"
thank you for your quick response. what i am trying to do is to implement an external GPS onto APM2 via the I2C port that locates closet to the on-board GPS. the reason for this is because the ext. GPS i have only takes 3.3V or else it…"
"Hello Andrew, I would be happy to help any way I can, although I am new at this myself. Not sure what you meant by "which pin to use on my code". The I2C I was referring to is the external GPS receptacle on the front of APM2, already…"
"i have a similar question as Richard, i am working with the Venus GPS by Skytraq
however it doesnt come with EM406 connector, is it safe to connects its GND/TX/RX/3.3V (VIN) to the pins right behind the…"
APM2 successfully communicate wirelessly even with 2.4GHz xbee pro 2
after they were connected in mission planner they didnt seem to transferring anything so I re-upload the firmware to the APM2. the mission planner not only showing…"
"i realized i made a silly mistake where i forgot to undo the loopback wire on the APM2 side. so i am guessing when mission planner tries to connect to APM2 the signal comes right back, hence "no heatbeat packets received". after…"
I am having some difficulties setting up telemetry for an UAV and hope to start this post to pool some ideas.i am using APM2 with the latest firmware ArduPlane V2.50 uploaded to APM2 using mission planner 1.2.4 mav 1.0 on the APM2 side i uses the xtremebee boardmodem: XBP24BZ7 function set: ZIGBEE ROUTER AT version: 22A7http://store.diydrones.com/product_p/br-0015-01.htmXtreemBee on the PC side i uses…See More
Hello Andrew, I would be happy to help any way I can, although I am new at this myself. Not sure what you meant by "which pin to use on my code". The I2C I was referring to is the external GPS receptacle on the front of APM2, already programmed in ArduPlane, et al.
