"Andrew. I got the simulation working by renaming ..\MAVProxy\eggs\mavproxy-1.4.32-py2.7.egg to something arbitrary. This left ..\mavproxy-1.6.1-py2.7.egg This was a standard windows installation, so it appears the file is a leftover from a previous…"

"Which documentation did you use? (please give a link). The current docs are: http://ardupilot.org/dev/docs/sitl-native-on-windows.html although most windows users just use the pre-compiled SITL that is built into MissionPlanner. Did you try that? If…"

SITL for Windows appears dead

The SITL for Windows discussion appears to be dead since Feb of last year.I will post my query here in the hope it gets noticed."I setup sitl on Windows 7. I followed the recipe in the web documentation exactly. Cygwin is working fine. Mavproxy installed without errors. Python installed into the virtual Linux environment ok. jbsim is installed properly. I then built the sitl versions of ArduPlane and ArduCopter sucessfully without errors. Ticks to everything.When I run Mavproxy from the…See More

John Fitter replied to Sander De Sutter's discussion check port settings
"You probably don't have a bootloader in the APM. If it is new it may have been supplied without one. Follow the directions to install a new bootloader. You will need an FTDI dongle and some patch leads."

John Fitter replied to Finnius's discussion Need sensors attached for stabilize mode?
"I can't believe no one bothered to answer your query. Yes, APM2 will work just fine as a stabilizer and you don't need to connect external sensors. I do this myself and it's a good use for old APM2s. You can even use the mode features…"

John Fitter replied to Paul Lee's discussion Analog float switch to Pixhawk aux ports
"Paul, the problem with measuring tank contents in an aircraft is that the fluid is subject to forces outside of the aircraft's inertial frame of reference. Put simply, the fluid sloshes around. Full size aircraft face this problem. Float…"

John Fitter replied to George Myers's discussion Using steppers in antenna tracker
"Nothing can drive a steeper motor, but you are correct - BGC cannot drive stepper motors. I can however drive BLDC motors in micro-stepping mode, and BLCD motors are "dirt" cheap. I did not offer a solution to George's problem of…"

John Fitter replied to George Myers's discussion Using steppers in antenna tracker
"Here is an idea. Get any gymbal controller. There are cheap clones on eBay. These are designed to run two stepper motors in micro-stepping mode. The micro-stepping mode gives you less torque but finer resolution and is ok if you balance your…"
