no reply in the mini APM Pro forum so, Powering the Mini APM Pro.
I've had two of the mini APM pro's and the standard mini APM for a while now one has Had a crash . Since reinstalling and setting up on a hex f550 I've found a power issue. I read everyone's comments and I heard someone mention there is a power shortage on the mini APM pro but I still don't understand it or what needs to be done. Does it require a dedicated 5v Bec to feed enough current across the board and the power module?
I have the supplied Power Module on and it will power the board but I first noticed a problem when I powered it on for a flight and it was almost locked onto the GPS when it rebooted. I wasn't sure if I had seen correctly or if it had just got sun on the led.
So I had a few short flights no probs, flys great RTL then loiter, had it in circle mode, a nice ten meter circle then it dropped about 4-5minutes into the flight while in circle mode. Power went out and crashed which busted a few things on the frame again. Maybe it was the same thing that caused it to go down last time I had it going. So I'm unsure what's up. Anyone who can let me know the proper way to safely power the board even help making a redundant power set up would be good just in case something happens with the main power.
Your help will save me scrapping the mini APM pro so I appreciate feedback.
