Heino R. Pull commented on Heino R. Pull's blog post Using a Remzibi OSD with Arducopter 2.0.x Beta (and now Arducopter 2.7.3/2.8) and Mavlink 0.9/1.0
"Yes the Arduino Pro Mini is flying on my quad decoding the Mavlink and converting it to Remzibi style serial commands for OSD symbology. The feed was one way though - the uplink to the APM is coming from my XBEE and the downlink is tee'd off to…"

"Heino, Wow, you have done some impressive work setting up your copter and ground station. Did you add MAVlink functionality to the Arduino Pro Mini on-board your copter? Most of the MAVlink/Arduino applications that I have seen are for use in ground…"

Heino R. Pull replied to Stefan's discussion Remzibi OSD 3DR + APM 2.5 GPS?
"I've only tried this on the APM.  I don't have any 32 bit hardware so although in principle it could work, I'm not sure. Heino "

Heino R. Pull replied to Avi Yadgar's discussion Tracking - negative tilt
"The only way to do this would be to expand the range of the tilt servo to more than 90 degrees and to calibrate it. This requires modifying a number of hard coded constants in the Ardustation code.  I've stopped working on the Ardustation…"

Heino R. Pull replied to Guy Tzoler's discussion ArduStation without Xbee
"You certainly could make it work, but you'll still need some way to set home position using a user interface. The existing Ardustation 2 software assumes that there are an array of buttons and an LCD screen.  The software would have to be…"

Heino R. Pull replied to Heino R. Pull's discussion Ardustation 2 - 2.0.20 Adds Servo Setup, Compatibility with 3DR OSD, Optional Baro Altitude For Pointing
"It is possible, but there are a few differences that need some work - such as the switch input - which is quite a bit different and the LCD which is larger, and has graphic modes. It would definitely be a better choice - particularly since 3DR has…"

"I just consider another option - adapt your code (Ardustation2_APM_ACM_2.0.20_Mavlink1.0) to ASM, from JDrones. I mean mainly the antenna tracker code, which is vital for me, others could stay from origin - LCD display driving routines, etc... As i…"

"You could add code to master a couple of I2C slaves, and it is possible with some external wires on the Ardustation (need to add pull up resistors for I2C), but it will be tough to debug with the limited debugging features of the Ardustation. If I…"

Heino R. Pull replied to chethan j's discussion Ardustation2_APM_ACM_2.0.11 error
"You can simultaneously use the Ardustation with other ground stations.  I'm not sure exactly what your desired configuration is (using Xbee, 3DR radio, or other serial device). But in general, if you have a source of serial data, you can…"

Heino R. Pull replied to chethan j's discussion Ardustation2_APM_ACM_2.0.11 error
"This is a very old version from 2010 so it needs an earlier version of the Arduino environment to be compatible at the library level. I just tried downloading and compiling 2.0.11 with Arduino.021 and it worked. Here is what I did: Download the…"

Heino R. Pull replied to Heino R. Pull's discussion Ardustation 2 - 2.0.20 Adds Servo Setup, Compatibility with 3DR OSD, Optional Baro Altitude For Pointing
"Hi Leigh.  If the servo does a full 2160 degrees from 1500 to 1900 usec, then to get 360 degree turn you need: 400 usec / 6 = 66 usec for 360 degree rotation.  so the min value would be 1700 - 33 to 1700 +33. (Min 1667, max 1733)…"

Ardustation 2 Aircraft Battery Low Voltage Warning (2.0.18)

Posted on April 3, 2013 at 8:03pm 2 Comments

I've been working on the Ardustation 2 software since August 2011 and I've finally gotten around to adding a feature that has been asked for more than once: a buzzer warning when the received Mavlink aircraft battery voltage has dropped at or below a set value.  The buzzer is sounded  ( at LCD…

Using a Remzibi OSD with Arducopter 2.0.x Beta (and now Arducopter 2.7.3/2.8) and Mavlink 0.9/1.0

Posted on October 22, 2012 at 5:44pm 33 Comments

Update 10/22/2012 - For those few who may be interested, I'm now using this software on my personal quad with ACM 2.7.3 and 2.8. This software now compiles with Arduino 1.0.1 and works with…

Mixing Rocketry with Arducopter 2.5.3 - SLRA Launch March 31, 2012

Posted on April 10, 2012 at 10:00am 6 Comments

I'm the secretary for our local St. Louis rocket club: St. Louis Rocketry Association and decided to bring out my Jdrones frame/APM 1 to the launch to do some 2.5.3 testing and at the same time shoot video of some rockets with a GoPro Hero 2. I'm using the Jdrones stabilized camera mount - although I'm still adjusting the camera mount gains and dealing with jello video. The GoPro video was also sent to the…

Updated for ACM 2.5.3 and APM 2.3.0 - Unified Ardustation 2 With Parameter Editing, Antenna Tracking and Auto Detection of Arducopter or ArduPlane

Posted on October 15, 2011 at 8:00pm 88 Comments

This is an update from the original blog post in October 2011:

I've updated the Ardustation 2  source code to allow compilation with Arduino 1.0 Relax and the latest libraries for ACM 2.5.3 and APM 2.3.0. This update also includes a modification of parameter names for PID editing that match ACM and…

Modified Ardustation Software to Support the Arudcopter and a Tilt/Pan Antenna Driven By Mavlink

Posted on August 1, 2011 at 7:32am 294 Comments

I've modified Phillip Anthony Smith's Mavlink Ardustation to support an inexpensive tilt/pan antenna platform. RAM is very tight in the software so this is not a laptop/ground station replacement and the original software was…
