I recently bought this setup:Ardupilot main board (ATMega 328) V2 Shield EM406 GPS FMA X Y and Z sensors FTDI programming cable All interconnecting cablesI was wondering what the difference between…Continue
"you're right!!! ok, i'll try with fma but... can i plug the sensor without shield?! direct on the ardupilot board? And, in the config, i set the shield version -a (no shield), right?
Forgive typos, on the Ipad which is terrible for typing!
I think you're coming at this from the wrong angle. You already have legacy hardware, you are now trying to take it out of a supported config before youve even confirmed it…"
"That's the point though.
You are using (I believe) a totally unsupported configuration (no FMA or IMU). so how do you know the rudder would work without these? What if the code is waiting for an input from one of these? What happens if you…"
"Ok, i'll check this!!!! I have also an FMA, but for now i'd like to test it only with gps and on the ground, just to verify the correct work of the rudder servo, it's possible? just like on a rc car.... or on a plane but on the…"
"ok, i think that with 2.7 no more need the bind plug, right? so.... from the config file i setup no shield, gps work fine, from the debug i see the distance from waypoint that i loaded increase/decrease as i approach the point... but i don't…"
"Now, after few minutes (indoor, in my house!!) i've got a solid blue led and red blink on em-406, on debug of gps out i can see the right lat.long. red power led on, other led of. if i move the switch on position 3, go in auto mode and red mux…"
"Ok, done. 2 wires soldered. 2.7.1 loaded. In config.h i've changed position3 from fly by wire to auto (i'm using an hitec optic 6, 2 switch position, toggle between position 1 and 3). This in the line that i suppose i must modify...…"
