Rover radio signal loss "HOLD" and not "RTL"?

Started Nov 12, 2015 0 Replies

I'm using a APM 2.6 in a "Relentless" power cat. I would like to change the failsafe of loss of radio signal to RTL. Currently the default setting is "HOLD" which is rather unhelpful when the boat is…Continue

"Had the same thing but got it sorted out and she ran perfectly, then did a Mission Planner update and it is now worse than ever and I can't remember what I changed. I will try some of these settings and let you know."

"Hi Esteban, My answer would be neither! Reason: when you say fiberglass I am assuming you mean Polyester resin and glass fibre (normally chop strand matt)? Neither material is good for a core material. In a structural sense the cellular bond…"

Lights, Joystick mapping

Hi everyone, I am trying to use the buttons on my joystick to operate Lights and smoke on my rover/boat. I can use the extra channels to operate the lights etc via the X & Y axis on the Joystick but that leaves me on channel short. I have 7 extra buttons on my joystick so I was hoping to map the channels to the buttons but can figure out how to do it. I'm using APM 2.6, MP, Turnigy receiver servo switches, 3DR radio, Thrustmaster T-Flight joystick. I will also post this on the new…See More

Hi there Richard.

You can change all the Variables/Params entering the CONFIG/TUNING tab in the Mission Planner Software, selecting the Full Parameter List.

You have to search there the Param name FS_ACTION (failsafe action) and change it there.

Regards.
