"Audrey, you would need either to change the code on the APM and use a pin off it to raise then lower the reset pin on the XBee 868 or implement a separate MCU to do this.  In what I found the "magic mark" is around 6 minutes, after…"

"Hello, really need your help. Connected to the xbee 868 apm2.5, everything works fine, but after a while xbee stops working since 10% of the limit (10% duty cycle). Tell me please: how to implement an automatic reset every 5 minutes."

"I have strong reasons to suspect that my PX4FMU has some weird manufacturing fault, it never worked as it should even with help from the designer of it and several other people. Sent off an email to inquire about what the RMA procedure would be, no…"

"Ok now I have tried also connecting it, waiting 30 min, then starting missionplanner and trying to connect. Same result. Then I did the same except resetting and waiting instead, still same thing. Also tried different usb port, no change.  What…"

"Gary, yep I am aware of the disconnect/reconnect. Just for testing purposes I also tried to leave usb plugged in without doing anything for about 25min before attempting to connect, but still no hartbeat. What I did not try was resetting it, will…"

"tried both ArduCopter 2.9.1b as well as 3.0.0 rc1, firmware uploads fine but after that nothing, no hartbeat, so mavlink connecting is aborted... Since I am not familiar with MissionPlanner at all I have no clue if it is behaving correctly, at any…"

"Tested now with the missionplanner download thingie, and I can apparently flash the firmware on the device but that's it. Mavlink fails to connect after 30sec of timeouts. So I tried it all from scratch again, same result after many attempts at…"

A PX4 AR Drone is born 2nd post

Welcome back to my build log/experiences with this project. 

After playing around with and figuring out where to put the various bits I went on to add the XBee headers, powercable and 3 pin RX header to the PX4IOAR: 

At this point I will skip further as the assembly is…

A PX4 AR Drone is born

Sharing some pics etc from my PX4FMU/AR Drone build. 

I got the AR Drone carrier to be able to fly the PX4FMU inside to test small things whenever, plus the AR Drone airframe is very well suited to packed urban environments like where I live. 

I do also plan on using the PX4FMU for other airframes, but…

Interesting as UAV controller/OSD: TechFX Motion OSD (with IMU)

Posted on February 10, 2009 at 11:00am 3 Comments

I have just recently gotten one of these from http://thesiliconhorizon.com/





And I was basically planning on using it as the hardware platform for my own integrated UAV controller.



The specs TechFX Motion OSD IMU:

* small 2"x2.5" size

* fast dsPIC 40 MIPS 80 Mhz MCU

* 3 axis accelerometer MMA7260Q with G selectable

* 3 axis Gyroscope of IDG300's

* MAX 7456 On screen display video overlay NTSC and PAL… Continue

So how is the TechFX Motion OSD IMU working out so far. Has most of the features I need, plus it has one of my favorite micros on it. Also I noticed you said you had some good Kalman algo's, info etc. I'm still struggling with Kalman's so I could use some good pointers here.

Thanks for the update. I actually was thinking about using it for my work where I need an easy upfront status display (NTSC) for our development vehicle which uses CAN for instrumentation (dspic has two CAN i/f's). I also need an IMU. This board seemed to come close for all that. I also have dspic tools and am familiar with it. All bonus points going for me on this board.
