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 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.
