Been going through testing the latest batch of APM 2.6's I received.
I have a problem on one of them, and want to see if I missed anything before requesting RMA.
We have the APM connected to the GPS/Mag ONLY. No other connections, input or output.
I can succesfully load and verify the quad/hex/y6 firmware.
After that I hit CONNECT, and it starts to load the MavLink parameters.
EVERY TIME it gets about 1/3 to 1/2 way, then hangs. not always on the same parameter, it seems random.
I have :
Changed out the GPS and GPS cables
Changed the USB cable
Tried other APMs - they work 100%
tried connecting the 3DR radios. they connect to each other (green lights), but No comms with Mission planner.
All baud Rates checked and com ports verified, as I said, it works with other APMs.
The only logical conclusion I can come to is that the board is faulty.
