I am running APM 2.0.17 on MAC and I am not seeing the mandatory setup wizards. Searching around I see a similar problem from A YEAR AGO and wonder if this is just how it is?
Please help! I dread the idea of buying a Microsoft product so I hope to find a fix for this.
First timer so I like the Wizard route.
Just to be clear I am using and the problem is with APM not MP!
Yes, sorry - my bad. Just remembered another thread that complained about wizard resetting too much.
Luckilly, there is no wizards yet, - wizards are dumbed-down version of stepping thru essential configuration steps.
APM planner is very nicely arranged, you you just need to look into every item from top to bottom:
Install desired firmware first.
Then connect , click "initial setup" , then go thru all items in "mantadory setup" - you've done whatever a wizard would do.
Then proceed to "optional setup" - and configure whatever applies.
- done :)
I've installed firmware successfully.
The next button down is "3DR RADIO" which displays a host of different fields between "LOCAL"and"FIELD" radios.
Is "mandatory setup" a button like "Firmware" and "3DR Radio"? I only have the two buttons present.
Connect USB-Pixhawk or USB-Telemtry Radio?
That's entirely up to you :)
57600 is baudrate for radio , 115200 for USB cable
There is also basic documentation here on using the planner to get started http://planner2.ardupilot.com
