New APM 2.5+ Issues

Hello all!

I just received my fancy new APM 2.5 from 3DR, and I must say that it is sweet goodness. Although I am having some issues:

*NOTE* CLI Works only on first connect of power, log download only over USB
Opened com port


Init ArduPlane V2.73

Free RAM: 2659

Press ENTER 3 times to start interactive setup

ArduPlane V2.73]

As you an see the no data flash/Compass issues. It doesn't detect by Ublox GPS either. I have tried to enable them via the CLI to no avail. I have also tried the ArduCopter firmware to see if anything would "Magically" Work. I Can communicate with it just fine. I just can't view any logs, or enable compass/gps. So no real time stuff is displayed in the flight data. Any one have any good pointers? I have already shot an email over at help@3DR. Thanks!

  • Just an update. 3DR help has already assigned me an RMA number, and are going to provide a shipping label! I am so glad that I bought from 3DR and not some clone manufactuer. Hard telling what sort of service I would of got with another company

  • Well...I guess your right. I was stuck at the APM2. Sorry for that. Maybe someone else has a better idea what the problem might be.
  • But it is built in on the APM 2,5 no?

  • Based on the message above.....Remove and reinsert the micro sd card. It's needed to save the logs if i am not mistaken. If the card is not working then it may be bad and you could try a different done (e.g from a smart phone)
