I have been working on my own Quad with the NG code and have setup the Sonar and have it working very well . I have an indoor version with sonar and IR sensors and would like to know were the IR sensors are conected, what pins. I see you were working on implementing this so If you could help with basic setup I can try my hand at testing. Thanks for your work on the Sonar and good luck on the obstical avoidence.
So I will send you the changed AP_ADC lib probably later today.
I am not sure if a circular buffer is needed. The beauty of a 1st order IIR filter is that we only need one "old" sample and if a second order is needed only two old samples. But I will look a little better into the filter selection before committing anything to you.
hi randy, i had been following your forum for align450. i just got my APM2 purple. i loaded the ardu heli firmware. everythings looks to be ok on mission planner. but there is no PWM on servo out pins. i armed the APM2 and does gets armed. the radio callibration bars move proportionately. evrything seems to be OK. but in 'status' there is no PWM on channel out pins. it shows '0' PWM on all out channels. can uou please suggets what might be the reason. the APM2 works fine with arduplane and arduquad firmware. ravi
I had a different problem with my APM2 that I was able to solve by following the procedure found in the wiki with a search for APM board problems. My board would not connect to the planner and it works now.
hellohellohug. Icanhelp with anything, I did severalplanningsflightwith triandfirmware2.0.49and flewvery well. I did aquadand install2.5.4program awaypointflightand the teamtook off likecrazy.WPPIDsare by defaultand does not reallymoveasyou do.can you give mesome information.
Sorry for troubles. It's working now. Looks like Arduino IDE had some hiccup.
I should probably move to some better IDE as I'm using Arduino only for compiling/uploading and all files are edited in my fav editor and I have to restart Arduino every time I change something as it doesn't follow outside files changes.
I curently reside in Sagamihara, Kanagawa. Not far from Tokyo. I'm currently into quads and would like to know where do you fly your helis? Are you a member of a RC club and what city do you reside in Tokyo? Perhaps one day we can meet and do some flying.
Trying to hook up Hokuyo via USB port using 2 to 1 connector for sufficient power and neither of my computers even see an unknown USB connection.
Just wondered if you ever tried to hook this up.
From everything I can tell, even if the driver isn't installed properly yet, In the device manager I should see an Unknown device message and right now nothing happens at either the computer or the Laser Scanner.
On both computers as soon as I plug in the APM I get an immediate response from both and it the connection is recognized in the device manager and connected to.
I fear there may be an actual problem with the scanner.
Sorry to bother you so soon, but thought I'd dig in as soon as I got it.
Just trying to bring up the Hokuyo visual interface.
Hello Randy and thank you for sugestion regarding octa quad.I want to ask if you now someone who actualy made this kind of setup(octa quad) with APM 2.5 and if you now how could I contakt him.Thank you again,Silviu
first of all, thanks a lot for your brilliant and impressive tutorial vids you have created. This brought many steps forward. One question I have, and I coudn't find the answer in the wiki or in the forum. In the log file, what ist the difference between RelAlt and Alt. I have senn, there are differences in the values, but I can't interprete it in the right way.
Hi Sir Randy! I am Cindy, a friend of Jonathan Diaz from the Philippines. He was the one who suggested to ask you regarding my problem. Do you have an idea why the mission planner's flight data is not responding to quadcopter's movements? I've also noticed that when "logs" is typed in the terminal, nothing happens. I have no idea why this is happening. Thank you very much in advance for your suggestions.
Hi Randy. I was looking around in DIY Forum for finding something about how the APM 2.6 Code is connected, respectively included to the Mission Planner. Furthermore, would it be possible to set all the parameters just in the ArduCopter programm, meaning without the Mission Planner? I would be glad if you could clear me up, or giving me a hint. Thanks in advance.
Here's a big problem to discuss with you. I flied like this: armed in loiter on the ground and switch to auto to takeoff, the copter takeoff 2 meters off the ground and turn into loiter mode.
Then I flied for a while , to a place lower than the ground, the copter go up suddenly and can't stop! I tried land and stablize mode, and flied back the copter in stablize mode. Then I did the same thing as before, the problem occured again! Here are the logs, logs show that some problems occured between baro_alt and current_alt.2014-03-17%2016-59.log
