first i have self the EM-406 and works only for RTL
then i changed to original MTK GPS and it lucks like i we have now the same problem -no stbilization and no servo out
i try and try since weekd and month with this shit Firmware…"
"I'm assuming that is a peak draw when the servos are in motion... Top of my head answer is probably no worries, but without looking at the eagle files I cannot say for sure.... To busy to do that right now."
Thank you for your answer.
The total current draw of my servos and long range radio receiver is close to 1.5-1.7 Amperes when powering everything from a 5 Volt BEC.
Should I worry because of heating of the traces on the…"
"Attach the BEC to the 4th servo connection on the AP board and there should be no issue if the current the servos are pulling is not so high as to heat the power and ground traces on the ardupilot board in the area of the servo connectors.…"
Hi there, I intend to use an Ardupilot with IR thermopiles (full XYZ solution) and Ardushield on a glow-engine flying wing. I have 2 high torque metallic servos controlling the elevons on the flying wing and 1 standard servo controlling the throttle.I am also using a Lipoly battery (3s) and a 5 Volt BEC powering the RC receiver, servos and the Ardupilot. I know that the servos get the power through the Ardupilot board.Due to the fact that I'm using metallic high torque servos for the elevons…See More
Can you indicate where and how the changes should be done in MatrixPilot 2.5.1 in order to raise the sampling rate at 5000 Hz?
In the UAVmanual available online it is also said that the sampling rate should be 5000 and that the servo…"
I have the same setup except I am also using ardushield V2. I encounter the same problem with solid GPS on arduimu and blinking GPS on ardupilot. I also get full manual control but as soon as I switch my control switch to stabilize mode I get no…"
More updates regarding this problem (it starts to piss me off!):
I use ArduIMU, Ardupilot and Ardushield V2.
I use the latest Ardupilot software version and ArduIMU software version 1.8.1
I get solid blue light on LED on…"
I connected the GPS EM-406A to the ArduIMU. I was using ArduIMU withj software version 1.8.2 and Ardupilot with software version 2.7. I was also using an Ardushield Version 2.
I modified the parameters in ArduIMU to expect GPS…"
"Unless the function has been removed in recent libraries, the IMU software will command the 406 into SiRF binary communication, not NMEA. Binary is your preferred mode in the IMU software.
If you wish to use NMEA, set NMEA in the IMU…"
"One more thing I noticed:
The behaviour described above, occurs ONLY when I use version 1.8.2 for ArduIMU.
When I use Version 1.7 for the ArduIMU, I never get a GPS lock, but I get STABILIZE mode working properly...
