I sent the following message to gentles.ltd.uk concerning one of their RC camera triggers.
"I am considering a Sony A5000 camera for my fixed-wing UAV build which uses the 3DR Pixhawk autopilot system. The system is pre-programmed using Mission Planner software which has a camera trigger action for designated waypoints. Am I correct in assuming that the gentWIRE_FOCUS 018MU, will work with this automatic triggering mechanism? "
And received the following response:
" The system has to at each waypoint provide a change in the RC channel gentWIRE is connnected to as follows:
Nominal "idle" or "off" between 1 and 1.5mS pulses.
To trigger camera increase to 1.8mS to 2mS for about 0.5 to 1 second."
None of this makes much sense to me at present but does anyone know whether the camera trigger from mission planner will do this?
Thanks in anticipation of your help
