Hi I'd like to use the APM1 to log the tilting in the x and y axis of a moving vehicle (not the arducopter). I'd like to do this without attaching a receiver to it and not use the transmitter radio as well. However, I will be connecting the GPS, but the motors will not be attached as well. I know I have to enable datalogging in CLI (not sure if it can be done in the mission planner GUI itself as I will be using older version of the arducopter code that can still be used with the APM1).
Once I do the above, will applying power to the APM directly cause it to perform datalogging? If not, can you point me to the section of the code where I can turn on immediate logging without the radio trigger (arming I mean). Which code version will maximize the 16mb memory for logging? Thanks.
