Were you able to get mission planner to compile? I've been working on it for a few days and don't appear to be making much progress. Could you post a step by step on how you got it to work?
So far, I've downloaded and…"
"DMP stands for digital motion processing. It's the term used by the makers of the MPU6000 for their algorythm which turns accel and gyro readings into roll and pitch angles. That particular define statement enables this feature, saving you a…"
"I've heard a few folks mention hardware failsafe devices - I actually just made one for traditional helicopters. It's like this but failsafes all 8 channels. I use it on my traditional helicopter, quad, and hex. It works kind of…"
"Let me double check it's okay with my boss. Sometimes we get stuck under some stupid trade treaties - just want to make certain no one is going to get mad if I publish code. I'll get back with you shortly.
Just FYI - if the arducopter…"
"Try green wiring it. That's going to be the least time consuming solution for you.
If you're really interested in modifying the code start looking in the folder libraries\AP_Motors. AP_MotorsQuad.cpp and .H, and AP_MotorsMatrix.cpp and .h…"
"I got it done with one state. in to_takeoff(), forces a new throttle mode called throttle_takeoff. In updateThrottleMode() the throttle is increased slowly from what it was when do_takeoff() was called until the vehicles is 1.5 meters off the…"
"If you think people could benefit from being able to edit in Eclipse but not compile (haven't taken the time to get that to work yet) I can add it to the wiki. We'll see how the instructions above work for Ivan and go from there."
"I'm doing most of these steps from memory because I already have Eclipse configured for all the computer I have access to. Let me know if you hit a bump anywhere. I'm going to assume you're a windows user. If you do Linux it's…"
"I edit in Eclipse and compile in adruino. It's no trouble at all to get Eclipse set up develop in. If you're interested I can toss together a step by step for Eclipse Juno. The best feature by far is the 'go to definition' -…"
"Just saw this - sorry it took so long to get your problem solved. Here's a step by step to compile arducopter code (I'm going to assume windows)
Download the arduino ide
Extract into documents\Arduino IDE. The folder structure should be…"
"Number 1: Always leave your transmitter on. The Ardupilot is extremely reliable but there are instances every now and then where you'll need your transmitter to take control of the aircraft. Always keep safety first.
In my code I have…"
