I just noticed this at the Chinese on-line retailer, ThanksBuyer.com
They are pricing the bundled versions attractively. Obviously made to compete against the APM micro 3.1
If anyone makes the leap, perhaps you could keep us informed on your experiences.
Happy flying all!!
The APM Mini Pro is similar to an APM 2.6. You connect the sik radio to the telemetry port and multiplex into the OSD.
Start with just the telemetry radio. Plug the dupont connector into the Mini APM Pro telemetry port. A green light should stay on when it connects to the ground radio, and a red light should start blinking when it connects to the flight controller. If this does not work, send me a photo. Mini APM Pro kits come with a variety of types of telemetry radios. Some work better than others. It the telemetry radio works, you will need to use a Y cable to connect the OSD into the same port. There is only one telemetry port on the Mini APM Pro.
is there something I need to do to enable the apm to send the telemetry data. The radios solid green light come on and the both connect under the sik radio tab, but mission planner won't connect to the apm through the radios.
So I Tried starting with just the radio plugged in and no osd. The radio had the solid green light on but would not connect to MP. I then tried only the osd plugged in and it worked and show the relevant items on the screen. So knowing that the port is working, I tried a different radio that I had instead of the one that came in the apm package and it worked. I was able to connect to MP through the radios. So I made the y cable and everything is working like it should. What confused me at first is looking at the attached image from the thanks buyer manual, is that it shows the osd plugged into the UART0 port instead of using a cable to the telemetry port. thanks for all the help guys I appreciate it.
Hi everyboady can you help me please?.. I got a APM Pro clone and a BN880GPS but I got a bad compass health and i cant calibrate it.. When I disable MAG, bad compass health disapears but I still got a Compass1 99 error and no calibtration and weirdly I can see on the panel my heading moving... Even when I disable all compass parameters.. I think this APM based on APM 2.6 has a mag in but to use a external compass you might disable something on the board or do something I think.. I tried all that I found and spent a lot of time on the web to find solution but no way... Test the SCL, SDA wires has a 3.2v with GND... Here is my APM Pro
Luke, I'm just installing an old APM mini 3.2, I don't know yours, but mine I had to disable int compass cutting something that disable it in the board
What is the APM Mini 3.2?.. I only know mine (apm pro), apm 2.5, apm 2.6, apm 2.7, apm 2.8, apm 3.1.
Can you show what you cut to see if I got this on my board?..
