Hello software guru's,
in missionplanner 1.2.43 the compass heading shows 360 degrees
and when you rotate a bit further, it shows 0 deg.
is this heading coming out of the APM2.5 code or does this info come from missionplanner?
if it comes out of the APM maybe the heading can get cumulatively worse ?

Hi richard, thanks for replying.
ofcourse I know that 360 and 0 are the same, but,
when you rotate the copter slowly, and look at the screen, and you see the vernier going trough 359, 360, 0, 1, 2 and you see the image on the screen moving, you start to think the softies made a boo boo
(if variable = 361 then variable = 0 ) instead of, (if variable = 360 then variable = 0) for instance
Just guessing but you probably get 360 when the heading is at 359.5 and above and you probably get 0 when the heading is between 0 and 0.5 degrees.
I would have to check the code to see what is actually going on.
That would be nice. It is probably nothing but it's nice to see there is a followup on these things :-)
I cannot speak C+#+ . I am more a BASCOM basic kind of guy.
