Hy all DIY UAV Builders ,
I would need your Help about APM2.0.18 / FW AC3.1.5
( First of all : I searched all around the forums to get the REAL response , and not only the same boring answer like :" look at the documentation " but allways fall on useless answer ( useless because I tested them and this doesn't works at all ) , I know the documentation as well because it's my Bible , so if you plan to answer like this you can go sleeping you won't be usefull for the comunity and obviousely for me :) )
- APM 2.6 Board + NEO6M + POWER Cable.
- Mission Planner 1.3.31 ( just upgraded )
- APM Planner 2 ( 2.0.18 Just Upgraded )
- Arducopter 3.1.5 Firmware
What is the Problem :
I build my 3rd QuadCopter ,and get back my APM 2.6 to mount on => OK
Flew One Lipo => OK
Wanted to Download the logs for analyze after the flight ,I went immediately into APM 2.0.18 , and ... No Log at all ...
As I 'm a little paranoid , I decided to upgrade and use Mission Planner 1.3.31 , from the log tabs , clic on DL via Mavlink => KO , error messages "error while getting log list" ... no way I decided to open the CLI then Download logs ... and tadaaaa logs are here ... I donload them , and can analize ...
What is changed between my old Quadcopter and this one :
Only the frame !!! all electronic worked perfectly on previous build ... and APM from 2.0.17 to 2.0.18 (LINUX AND WINDOWS ) and Mission planner from 1.3.? ( don't remember ) to 1.3.31 ... allways working with AC 3.1.5 FW .
1/ Why do I use the CLI to Download the Logs , while it is writtent to use MAVLink to do this instead ???
2/ Why do I use Mission Planner to do this , instead of APM2 ( cannot I only works on Linux and it worked as well before ... )
3/ Why This doesn't works with APM2 ??? ( Know ALL Bitmask and done at least 100 test
=> Setup the bitmask ,write to the board, refresh the list (OK ), disconnect the APM , PowerCycle it , fly indoor for 1 minute, power down the Quad and plug it to the computer => NO LOGS in APM2.0.18 , but in Mission Planner 1.3.31 only in the CLI ...
Anybody have some clues to fix this ( F.....G ) behaviour ???
Is there a simple checkup to know if my board is fried ?
Any thought , tip will helps My brand new Quad to works as he worked before ???
Best regards , and thanx to ALL Arducopter Team for their great Works :)
( sorry but now I'm boring and little hungry because every update of FW , or GUI makes too much problems I can't handle , I choose APM because this worked fine under Linux , like no other FC ( I only know APM ) , and just want to fly ( Video plateform essentialy ) I like electronic , Arduino , but for this project I can't spent time in debugging , cutting PCB track to fix somthing etc etc ... My goal when I purchased APM more than one year ago was to get the most reliable OPEN SOURCE FC)
