APM Planner Help

Hello,

Its been a year since I flew my plane and I'm making a few changes. Mostly I want to be able to fly the plane just using an xbox controller. I have read this post and even asked a few Qs but I'm still stuck. 

The Mission planner will download my unedited code without any trouble but when i use the Arduino IDE it wont compile the code and upload it. So my question is, is there a way of getting the APM Planner to uploading my edited code to my APM1? 

Thanks for all the help. If I get this to work I will post the video of the flight over the weekend. :-)

  • I have managed to get it compiling now but i'm getting this error message.     "avr/bin/ld.exe: region text overflowed by 724 bytes"  I'm guessing that sketch is two big so going to see what all can be deleted. once i have uploaded my modified code can i still use the mission planner to set way-points and joystick control?

  • when ever i try to compile the code i keep getting an error "   AP_Int16 format_version;" it wont run past this line any ideas?

  • Ok cheers for that. Was just hoping that there might be a way of getting the mission planner to update and use my new code. Cheers for the help

    you need to use arduino to upload modified code.

"Wow, Ning2 looks really great on mobile. I had sort of drifted away as my browse-time went more on my phone, so this is great."
