"I'm really interested in this too. I'm looking to buy an s800 for the build quality and lift capacity but I need the open source element of Arducopter. Did you need to do any tuning prior to this video at all? How do you power the APM from…"
"Through a process of elimination I've narrowed this down to when RC11_FUNCTION is set. This causes the serial connection to go haywire. It doesn't seem to matter what number I set it to I get the same behaviour. Strangely…"
Well done on the hard work. As you can see from my earlier post however I'm having problems with the gimbal configuration as of 2.7.3
After a lot of erasing eeproms, uploading from Arduino and the MP and testing on different…"
I tried erasing the eeprom and then uploading a v basic sketch from Arduino (to replace anything on the APM). I then downloaded the 2.7.3 code manually and uploaded it from the Mission Planner. I then erased the eeprom again from the…"
"I tried again. This time I downgraded to 2.7.1 and reloaded my 2.7.1 params. I then erased the eeprom from the CLI and upgraded to 2.7.3 (which should rewrite the eeprom anyway if you read the following post). I'm assuming…"
"Thanks for the quick response. I just tried your suggestion but still have the same problem. The second I change the tilt 'Input Ch' on the camera gimbal page to RC6, I get the message "Serial connection has been…"
I'm having loads of problems since the 2.7.3 upgrade and I think the gimbal code might be the source. I have tried uploading the new version from two seperate machines and both seem to upload and verify ok. After upload…"
"Tommy, If the Pi is up to this then this is great news and a much cheaper option than the Gumstix I was looking at.
I am in the process of writing a control library so my Arduino Mini Pro can receive PWM signals from a spare RC channel and translate…"
"Forgive my ignorance but how are you actually planning on sending the video down this link? If its down a 3G network won't the video need 'packetizing'? If that's the case I would imaging a Pi would be woefully inadequate and…"
"I had a similar problem with my 3DR and it turned out to be the version of MAVLink the Mission Planner was using. The installer installs 2 versions of the planner. One using MAVLink 0.9 and one using 1.0. It runs 0.9 by default but…"
"This would definitely help me avoid a repeat of this!
I see the latest version (1.1.98) of the APM planner now includes a Geofencing section along with a link to the comprehensive Wiki docs. However when I try to activate it I get the message…"
"I managed to fix this by doing a factory reset from the command line.
I found this problem reared its head again when I tried to configure the sonar/ofs from the mission planner. If I set the sonar up from the command…"
