ArducopterNG Beta 2 - Hanging shortly after reboot

I am attempting to switch to ArducopterNG Beta 2.

The CLI mode seems to work fine. I am able to tune offsets and min throttle....

(BTW. I really like this CLI concept.)

 

When I switch to the normal mode and reset the controller the controller seems to boot normally.

Goes through the running LED sequence etc. Approx 1-3 seconds later the boards becomes

unresponsive and nothing happens. Obviously it is hanging somewhere or crashed.

Even the reset button on the Oilpan is not working.

Needless to say it does not work with the Configurator since it always hangs in the end.

I have maybe gotten the longest run 1-2 minutes with the Configurator and was able to go throught the calibrate transmitter sequence. Usually it just hangs very shortly after the running LED show.

 

The RC1 is running fine and I am able to fly the copter with that software.

 

Any pointers??

  • Found it.... after noticing on the Oscilloscope that there was something pulling down the I2C bus.

    On the front there are two white 6 pin connectors. They are not interchangeable. One is I2C the other UART. :)
    I knew this, I read it and ..... well lesson learned.

    Kind of embarrassing.

     

    But I must say after having done the living room test that ArduCopterNG is looking really good.

    Looking forward to take it outside tomorrow and test the position hold.

  • hi,

    coding conventions are not so bad.

    but here i do not know what applies.

    you may have the wrong configuration.

    pls. just make shure that your definitions make sense with what you are flying.

  • @chris

    what is a system definition like an enumeration?

    /*************************************************************/
    // Airframe
    #define QUAD 1
    #define HELI 0

    // Note: do not change AIRFRAME to HELI and then load it into a QUAD or you will end up with your engines going to 50% during the initialisation sequence
    #define AIRFRAME QUAD

    this is extremely complicated for me :)

    what does it mean?

     

    it is a double definition.

    pls. consider using an enumeration for flying vehicles.

    then we know what is available and the actual definition of the airframe 'is' the the physical flying vehicle.

     

    excuse me, typing is getting bad late in the evening...

  • hi,

    beta is beta ;-)

    but what's up with the definitiions:

    /*************************************************************/
    // Airframe
    #define QUAD 1
    #define HELI 0

    // Note: do not change AIRFRAME to HELI and then load it into a QUAD or you will end up with your engines going to 50% during the initialisation sequence
    #define AIRFRAME QUAD

     

    i changed it to what you see.

     

    to me it is unclear what is user defined and what is a system definition.

    and mine is not yer flying.

    you may give it a try - this is what i call a beta :)

     

    robert
