Ciao Marco,

l'ArduPPM direi che fa passare anche il canale 8 se lo faceva passare la versione .86. Devi disabilitare il passthrough (e dovrebbe già esserlo nel sorgente che ho postato). In caso di perdita di segnale i canali dal 6 all'8 restano al nello stato precedente.

Ottimo, grazie Augusto! Leggo che hai problemi col magneto... è una versione hardware nuova o vecchia?
Questo perchè spero tu sappia che c'è da rimuovere una resistenza per farlo andare meglio.
L'hai saldato direttamente sopra l'OilPAN?

Ciao Marco

mi sono appena registrato e scrivo a te perchè ho letto nel forum che sei molto attivo nel team di arducopter.

Posso chiederti alcuni consigli circa la messa a punto di un MK hexa XL ? Sono appena tornato con un amico da un ennesimo test di volo concluso con un crash. Abbiamo già rotto parecchie eliche e un braccio e siamo un po' scoraggiati.

Ti ringrazio in anticipo

inquadrare un abbraccio e saluti dalla Colombia.
Ho avuto qualche problema con la mia apm 1 ed è il dispositivo che a volte perde il controllo e cade. quello che è successo ieri realizzata avendo visto in mano è che in ogni momento in cui egli teneva in mano sentivo che era rimasto senza funzione di colpi di scena e gli accelerometri. spegnere la radio e se ne andò via. guardare il APMe il LED blu era lampeggiare rapidamente e il verde spegnere completamente armato.
Faccio riprese aeree e temo che perdere il controllo succede qualcosa in quel modo.

Un'altra cosa è che ho il controllo della velocità e flasheamos mattoni rossi e SATaccelerazione kue è stato perso del 50% e che sono tornato a pianificare i tour dal progettista Mission.

Apprezzo tutta l'assistenza che ricevono.

Ciao Wilson, forse se non usi Google Translator capisco meglio cosa ti sta succedendo... puoi riscrivere il tuo post in inglese?

Ciao, avrei alcune domande riguardanti il nuovo Arducopter ma preferisco rivolgertele tramite email o pm.

Fammi sapere come preferisci continuare la conversazione.

Grazie

Ciao Marco , sono Alessandro , un nuovo iscritto al forum ma uso e manipolo arduino e ardupilot da un pò di tempo.

Ho un piccolo problema e spero tu possa aiutarmi :

uso APM 1 su tri/quad/esacotteri con estrema facilità (non entrando in configurazioni particolari ma usando i parametri di default).

stò provando ad installarlo su un Align 500 , ma non riesco a configurarlo.

quando aumento il gas , i tre servi del ciclico si muovono poco e in maniera difforme , cioè una va' prima su e poi scende, un'altro stà fermo e poi sale di colpo...

se faccio un reset del piatto e poi clicco sopra su manual riesco a regolarlo , ma quando salvo torna tutto come prima.

Dove sbaglio ?

La versione firmware  è la 2.9.

Ti ringrazio e ti saluto.

Alex

Hi Marco,.

i saw your test fly for arducopter 3 rc , do you consider it safe to test on its actual stage ? just for stabilize . of course as always at my own risk ..

Grazie

Marco,

I would like to be more self sufficient when trying to resolve problem while testing but I just cant seem to find change logs.  I have a 3drobotics quadcopter with an external magnetometer.  There used to be compass orientation but now Flight Planner doesn't allow me to pull down the options so I can specify YAW 180.  Compassmot doesn't seem to be a TEST option anymore either.

Why did compassmot go away along with compass orientation?

 

I also have an optical flow sensor v1.1 and it powers on but never shows any changing values.  When I hook up the Optical Flow sensor to test it also seems to really mess with the APM2.5.  When I first got the Optical Flow Sensor I think it screwed up an APM 2.5 and I had to but another.  I installed it twice on the new APM 2.5 and getting back to a normal operating APM 2.5 is scary because it always seems like I gliched another APM 2.5.

I guess I don't care about the optical flow sensor, all I am trying to do is to have a nice flying quadcopter.

 

Please help me figure out the compass and maybe the optical flow sensor v1.1.
