HI!I am going to convert my Skywalker so I add Arduplane software (and hardware)My issue is I want to keep separate servos for wing control - 4 servos= 4 channels (2 ailerons, 2 flaps)If not I have…Continue
"I got the Bixler1 for UAV purposes and have a Bixler2 in the mail that will be used for GIS and other aerial photos
Both will use Arduplane of course
Depending on the flight times I get from the Bixler2 (need 1 hour) I will order a black Skywalker…"
"I got the new ArdupilotMega today and soldered on the headers.
Downloaded the latest code and configure according to quick guides and manuals for 2ailerons
At least now it is working...partially.
The aileron on ch5 is OFF in manual mode
Thx for your answer.
I am not sure this unit is 100% - it can be damaged as I got it from a friend. I think I will order the latest version instead with the more powerful Atmel chip. Hopefully the oilpan is still OK - nothing indicates any…"
"Ok, on APM 1.0 , there is a mux chip that ouputs channels 1-4, so you damaged that chip. It's surface mount on the red ardupilot board, so you can replace it, or just replace the whole $65 board. I wouldn't fly with a damaged chip, even if…"
Refering to quick manualhttp://code.google.com/p/ardupilot-mega/wiki/RCI tried to configure my Arduplane for Bixler using 2 ailerons.I added the 2nd aileron on ch5 but it seems my ch1 output is broken as it gets no signal (ch5 is ok)I see both channels working in APM so there has to be something on the board.Is there any way I can test ch1 or can I change ch1 to ch6 ?I do know I have to build code with Aruino IDE but I do not yet…See More
"A questionYou mount the electronics with screws to the bottom - do you glue all parts together after?If you do you cannot remove the boards without breaking it apart.
The lower shelf (where you mount the electronics) has tabs but I do not feel they…"
HI!I am going to convert my Skywalker so I add Arduplane software (and hardware)My issue is I want to keep separate servos for wing control - 4 servos= 4 channels (2 ailerons, 2 flaps)If not I have to reverse 2 servos internally...Does Arduplane support this?I think I only saw 3 channel mode (throttle, elevator, rudder)I use ArdupilotMegaPlanner of course...//UndConSee More
