More Mission Planner woes!...

Ok, I am still having problems with setting up my copter....

All has been going ok...

I've set up most of it to be ready for Auto Tune in the air.... But.....

I had to re-install Mission planner and when I did so from the Ardupilot site, nothing worked....

Then, I did a search for old versions and found this site...

http://firmware.ardupilot.org/Tools/MissionPlanner/

I then loaded version 1.3.31 and bingo! All good again... Agh! if only....

One thing I remember from the last time I did anything was a function that I could set Auto-tune to only do roll or pitch tuning but I can't find it???

In any higher versions than 1.3.31, I don't have any drop downs or parameter list options...???

Can anyone advise on this please?

  • WINNER!!!!

    Oh boy.....

    Ok, here it is....

    I came home and gave it one more go on Mission Planner... No go!

    I downloaded QgroundControl and tried that... I got a message saying "Error on link\\.\COMM. Error connecting: Could not creat port. No such file or directory"

    Then I took the SD card and tried to read that on my Laptop... That told me it needed formatting... I was sure I should see a directory or something???

    So, I put another card into the Pix' and plugged it into QGround.... no connection.... I then (out of frustration) pulled the lead in and out a few times and it connected! 

    Yee-Hah! It seems to be working....

    Only now it will only run on my wifes Laptop (Windows 7).....

    No problems.... Lol....

  • Hi again folks....

    I found an old video of mine (not my usual account) of when I first got my Pixhawk I had this problem but I can't remember what the cure was....

    It's now doing this so any advice at all would be great.....

    • I seem to remember something about taking the SD card out, Loading the FW directly onto that and putting it back into the Pix'???

      Maybe I'm way off there???

      Please help??? I wanna fly!

  • Ok, Things are getting worse!

    Now I think I've bricked my Pix! Grrr!!!!!!!

    I was trying to up-date the FW to 3.3.3 and it wasn't going through....

    Time out I think but now I have to system light! I think that's it.... the big bright LED just behind the arrow....

    Can anyone please advise????

  • The function I'm looking for (apart fro, all of them) is AUTOTUNE_BITMASK.

    I know this will help me out but like I said...

    For some reason, I have no options???

    I connect to MP, all looks right until I go to change anything.... all of the drop-downs and parameter lists are blank????

    Please advise???
