New! APM Planner 1.0

Posted on June 5, 2011 at 7:20am 151 Comments

 

Over the past couple of weeks I have been busy reworking my original APM Mission Planner. Together with my partner/designer Samantha Nelson we have focused on improving the APM Planner’s interface, ideally resulting in a more intuitive user experience.   

Below are a couple screenshots of the new…

Hi Michael,
Hopefully very soon, I been busy changing jobs aswell that's why I haven't been down the field much lately,
im hoping to start buying the parts very soon. im going with a Hex setup and then maybe a smaller fun quad. the funny thing is I have been researching all this over a few months now and only just when 1.02 of the mission planner was released did I notice that it was you who designed it.... small world, I remember my 1st day at the field George was telling me about your gps plane as it was doing its auto flights and stuff but yer didnt realise your involvement with the whole thing.
And likewise it awesome knowing I will have a like minded local that I can bounce ideas off and share problems with :o)

Michael,

I have noticed a minor problem with the DO_REPEAT_SERVO Command.

The required parameters are: Servo #, PWM, Cycle Count, Cycle time.

Cycle time reverts to 0.

 

Thanks again for the great work.

Greetings Michael,

Please refer to Chris’s APM Roadmap blog for the introduction:
http://diydrones.com/group/apmusergroup/forum/topics/apm-roadmap

There could be an opportunity for having a community college in Pennsylvania look into writing some simulation code for quadcopters in the Spring semester 2012. I’ll also see with other schools about trying to start in the Fall semester 2011.

Could an “add-in” be easily linked to your APM Mission Planner without risking screwing-up your first-rate program?

Please let me know!

Cheers, JJ

Hey Michael,
I have a suggestion for your APM Mission Planner (or maybe it is already in it, and i am to dumb to find it ;-) )
Can we have the city names/street names etc blended in to the google earth map?

Reason being, if i go to my flightfield, yeah i just about know where it will be on the map.
But for example i am planning on taking my copter on holiday this year, if i would want to do a waypoint flight there, it would take ages to find where i am, if not impossible (it will be sweden, so everything just looks green + blue for the lakes :D )

 

Just an idea...

Michael,

I have loaded your APMplanner 1.0.19.

The terminal with the CLI switch  to the left site working.

Firmware can I updaten.

When the CLI switch swithed to the right and I wil connecten for the Flight Data then stopped the connecting by 24 second.

What is the problem

At 12:43am on June 28, 2011, Hans Kulker said…
Michael,
I request you to disconnect the GPS receiver but to no avail.

The following is true:
2 weeks ago I bought the print.
I then downloaded the 1.0.9 APMplanner and firmware Hexacopter set.
it worked then.

Yesterday I did an update to 1.0.19 APMplanner done.
When did the hexacopter even via USB.
I was not stable.
I did a firmware update from hexacopter.
Now, the communication over USB anymore.

The following is true:
CLI switch to the left
Firmware update works.
Terminal mode of communication works and I can read data from testing.

When I go to the Flight, Configuration, flight planner or Simulation mode, do I connect to.
I get a window Mavlink
After that, we stopped at a timeout of 24 seconds and the program is stuck.

The green, red and Rx LED flashes.

I myself get the idea that on the side of the APMboard is something wrong in the firmware?

I hope you do something with my story, I am waiting for replies.
Excuse my syntax.

Sincerely,
At 11:32pm on June 29, 2011, Hans Kulker said…

Michael,

In response to the problem I have done some further research.
I noted the following:

Mavlink the communication between the USB and APMboard APMplanner is not built
I watched this with the program Portmon
Seems that the firmware gives a wrong answer
So is there anything on the Mavlink resent communication has changed.

This may help to solve the problem.

At 10:39am on July 1, 2011, Hans Kulker said…

Michael,

 

I have now updated to APM is 1.0.22 and firmware AC 2.0.31 beta.

I have now the same problem

The USB communicatie with Mavlink is not fixed.

Michael,

Here are the notes I made during the test of Planner 1.0.30 and my APM2560 board.

 

NOTE: APM System is installed in the Telemaster 

PC: Dell INSPIRON N4010  

PC Port:  USB   COM 4 115200 bd

 

Operation of HIL with:

Release version of APM, latest Planner, APM2560, IMU rev H

 

APM Version APM 2.2.1

X-Plane Version 9.70 

Planner Version 1.0.30 Build 1.0.4205.36092  

 

Started Planner with console on: 

Request stream MAV_DATA_STREAM_EXTENDED_STATUS at 1 hz : currently 0

bps 1160 loss 2 left 11

remote lost 0

... ... ...

 

Planner > Firmware > ArduPilotMega 2.2.1 HIL

Mode: CLI Terminal > setup > erase > reset > radio > modes > logs

(Show Settings worked)

Mode: FLY

Planner > Configuration > Connect  (no param values)  Went to Flight Planner then back to Configuration. Parameters now updated.

Load .param file > (several green boxes) Write Pids  NO ERROR MESSAGES!

Planner > Flight Planner > Load WP File > LOOKS GOOD!

Started X-Plane > Located plane at end of runway (paused)

Planner > Simulation (Gains as before) > Start

X-Plane > Take Off  CRASH!

 

I am sure the problem is the board.  This afternoon I will replace the 2560 board with the old 1280 one.

 

Thanks for your help.
