I am using a JR 10sx with a Frsky module and PPM Rx. The PPM stream that is output from the rx has the channels in the wrong order for using with the Arducopter code. Is there a way to change the…Continue
Hi everyone,I have had an Arducopter for about 2 months and I love it. I have been progressing through the Beta firmware as it has been released and it gets better every time. However, I have had a…Continue
The arm it self doesn't matter, what matters is the location of the motor in relation to the center of gravity of the copter. You could have an arm that is curved in all kinds of directions and the copter will not know the…"
I think most people use the Arduino IDE, which you can download from here:
It is a little particular about where you place the source code. The first time you run the IDE it will place an…"
I figured that is what was needed, but I was afraid it might not play well with the failsafe function of the throttle. I guess as long as the radio.pde knows which one is the throttle channel and passes the correct information to…"
First, thank you so much for taking the time to look into this.
However, on JR transmitters throttle is channel one, aileron is channel 2, and elevator is channel 3, therefore we actually need to change the order of the first 3…"
Thanks for the suggestion, and what you have proposed is what I meant by channel to channel mixing. It might work, but it would be so much easier to go to CLI and type "map AETR" and be done with it....lol. If I get a…"
Thanks for replying. I wish it was that easy, but I am using a JR 10sx with the FrSky module, therefore I do not have the ability to change the channel assignment in the radio like you do in ER9X. I might be able to do some fancy mixing in…"
"It is your JR tx that is the problem. JR and Futaba assign the channels differently. The Arducopter software is setup for the Futaba channel assignment. I have the same problem and I have not been able to find a way of remapping…"
"I have been using basically the same setup for about 6 months and it seems to work well for me on my custom quad.. Mine are mounted on screws that stick up from the top plate. I put a hole through the earplug and use a washer and nut to kind…"
"Yes, it would be nice to be able to do that, or assign the channels as you wish for what ever pupose,but so far our requests have gone unnoticed. I even requested an enhancement in the wiki. At the moment I am using the standard…"
"I am having the same problem with my spektrum DX8. I am using a 433MHz Rangelink module and trying to use the PPM output from the receiver.
When I connected the PPM by following the wiki page - I got it working for the 8 channcls (Thanks Wiki page…"
"What you are looking for is a collet type prop adapter. You just need to make sure you get the one for the size motor shaft you have. Here is the selection at HK but you can probably find one at your local hobby…"
"I guess I'll have to go back to non-PPM also...I thought it would work just like the NAZE32 where I just use the terminal to set it to AETR or whatever, but I don't see any settings for that in APM planner."
"I haven't figured it out yet. I do not know enough about programming to even know where to begin. At this point I am just running the normal servo wires from rx to APM2. Let me know if you ever figure it out."
