Mate, just realised that you're a Westralian. And a key figure in ardupilotry. Nice work, another leader from the west! Your program is incredible, almost impossible to believe it's free. Thankyou so much.
It worked perfectly and it was an impressing experience.
One week ago I tried it again with a new software:
- X-Plane 10
- APM Planner v.1.1.28 (now 1.130)
- ArduPlane 2.28 (modified)
And I have been frustrated because of the situation, because I cannot simulate with X-Plane 10.
The GPS maintains an intermittent blue light (1 second). Sometimes, after several hours the real position of the APM Planner keeps fixed but by pulsing “Home location” the system cannot update the dates of the position of the X-plane.
I have ordered a new GPS in DYDDrone Store and an IFTDI cable for if I needed to update the firmware of the GPS.
I really hope you can give me some advice about how to solve this problem.
I install APM planner 1.1.65 and the latest firmware 2.33 on APM 1 with airspeed, gps, and Xbee communication.
Since I update the firmware I retune the PID (FBW A) again and than starts the auto navigation.
I have 2 problems with the setup and I will be appreciate it very much if you can advise me how to overcome the problems.
1) On navigation program (auto) while turning more than 90 degree the plane is losing about 10m in height and regain it after it complete the turn. This problem doesn’t see in about 90 degree turns or less. I tried to increase the pitch to comp from 0.2 to 0.3 and it did not solve this problem. Instead every 90 degree turn, it went up by about 10m while the problem on larger angle left the same. Could you please advise me how to solve this issue?
2) Navigation stoped working after pressing restart mission in the APM planner. The yellow line is pointing correctly to the 1st waypoint however the plan flying in direct line as I left it before changing the mode to auto. I uploaded the mission again and the problem persists. Could you please advise the source for that problem and how to overcome it?
I 'am trying to find information on FPV video receiver hookup, from analog video Rx, so that I can display video with OSD on ground station screen. I cannot seem to find much info or diagrams to do this. Do I use a USB capture card? Is there a site explaining how to interface a video receiver to a laptop to display video and data? - thanks -Tom
Thanks for all your help with the joystick control of the APM1. I have managed to get the new 2.6 code to compile using the IDE and i have edited out the "trim_radio();" you said to but i have no idea what to do with the
RC1_MIN = 1000
RC1_MAX = 2000
RC1_TRIM = 1500
Section of what you said. Where is it in the code or where do i have to put it?
Just wanted to thank you for all your hard work. Mission Planner is a sweet bit of code, very nice job! I'd like to buy you a beer, but since you live half a world away and I don't have any current plans to visit Australia, I thought if you had a PayPal account, I'd like to donate some money for a beer for you. Thanks again.
Thanks for your comment. We have 40m and 60m now. Later we will launch 80m,100m,200m. Could you please tell me your email address so that I can send more information to you? Then according to your requirement, I will give you best offer. Thanks.
I have project which i have to use LabVIEW. I am trying to use LabVIEW GCS for my APM 2 instead of mission planner, but i could not get the reading from APM. I am using ArduCopter V2.9.1 Quad. What should i modify to make it work.
This is a picture for what i am getting.
As you can see above , when i open the "Debug Data" option i see like what is written above. The IMU data can not be shown.
