Hi All Once again after a long weekend of trying to get the Bloody!!! things working again, My Xbee 2.4 Gigs Pro series 2 are working beautifully, Comunicating in HK and in the New very Nice looking…Continue
I've also got the same issue still with 2.9 release and have adjusted the center roll position the way Brian has mentioned.
If anyone knows if there is a real fix for this yet can you let us know.
"Someones getting a kick back!!! I suppose its like in the ROV industry a normal Hydraulic valve goes for a couple of dollars and you slap the name ROV subsea onto it and hey Presto, you can sell it for $1000..."
Finally got my 2.4 Xbees working.
Can you please add in the post above if possible the following about The series 2 2.4ghz Xbees.
The 2.4Ghz Pro series 2 Xbees (firmware XBP24-ZB, XBP24-B)do not work with the DIY Drones Xtreme Bee…"
That sounds good. Im getting a pair of xbee explorer boards, If that does not sort out my issue the Ive got a pair of series 12.4 xbees on hold for me with the agents in South Africa.
Thanks for clearing that up for…"
Awsome news and some nice features. As Blake above mentioned. Are guys still able to use APM1280. I cant continue with the new code as it is to large for the APM1280. Which APM2.x would you recommend to stick with for the APM1280 guys. And…"
You are most welcome to ask about Xbee setup.
I using the XBP24-ZB firmware. One Xbee is programmed as a coordinator and the other is programmed as a router. The reason for programming the second one as a router is that you can set the…"
I am using the XBP24-ZB firmware.
I'm not 100% sure but i think you need to setup the zigbee addressing as this is for multiple Xbee devices on one network. (SE, DE, SI VALUES) also from what I have read is that you also…"
Here are some pics of what I have done to fit my APM to the Radian Pro.
I made the shield out of thin cardboard which i cut to shape so it would fit nice and snug in the Radian's nose. I tried to keep the shield as close to the motor…"
The receiver to look for would be either of the following:
AR6210 6-Channel DSMX Receiver
Price: R700.01 (incl.) Each
AR7010 7-Channel DSMXReceiver
Price: R799.00 (incl.) Each
Sound good. I also have a JR Voyager 260 GSR that I want to put an APM on. I battled quite a bit to get it to even work like a normal heli. I was trying Arducopter NG and Ardu priates. There was just too much fiddling and codes…"
In South Africa we cant use 900mhz either. I am running 2.4 Xbee Pro series 2 with zigbee frimware (XBP24ZB) and it is running very well with APM 2 I use a AIRTRONICS SD10G radio on 2.4ghz and i dont get interferance.
I had a…"
--You've soldered the two jumper wires on the bottom of the board for the throttle.
--The Throttle channel is connected
--You've got pin D13 on the AP board
--You got the uBlox preprogammed for ArduPilot from the DIY Drones store (you had to select that option) or programmed it yourself with the instructions in the manual.
All this is in the manual, but just double checking...

yes i know
- two cables soldered
- throttle channel is connected.manually fly, stabillize fly, FLY-BY-WIRE works fine
- i cut pin D13 between ardu and shield
- ublox ist programmed by myself.with config-file from jordy.

must i close the "bind pins" or must leave open at starup ?

No need for bind plug if you've got the throttle connected. But try it anyway. If it works, it means you didn't connect the throttle properly.
Are you using the stock config file?
It works for everyone else, so this must be a hardware/config error...

what do you mean with stock-sonfig-file ? for gps unit ??
i use my header file obove.the rest of the code ist orginal.
