Outputting transmitter inputs

I am trying to route the transmitter inputs directly to output in certain modes.  I cannot figure out how to do this.  My latest attempt was to put the following code in the AP_MotorsQuad classes output_armed() method.  It does not work of course.  Can any give me a hint on how to do this?  I just want to be able to output the transmitters input. _rc_roll->set_pwm(hal.rcin->read(CH_1));    _rc_pitch->set_pwm(hal.rcin->read(CH_2));    _rc_yaw->set_pwm(hal.rcin->read(CH_3));   …See More

ArduCopter V2.8.1 and Mission Planner

I  downloaded and built the ArduCopter V2.81 and the Mission Planner.  When I compile the ArduCopter V2.8.1 with Arduino and load it to my Heli the servo calibration does not show up in Mission Planner.  I  Connect to the Mission Planner and initially loads the parameter but the Radio Calibration screen has nothing for all the channels.  I was wondering if this is done on purpose or if I have a setup problem.  I noticed that Mission Planner says  ArduCopter V2.7.3 Heli(2560 only).  Actually I…See More
