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!!
Your RTL and GPS features works well?.. With your APM Pro?.. Where did you buy it?..
We recommend the FS-i6s with FS-iA6B receiver, (http://www.banggood.com/Flysky-FS-i6S-2_4G-6CH-AFHDS-Transmitter-Wi...) but you should have no trouble connecting the output from your receiver (whatever was included with your i6 transmitter) to the input on your Mini APM Pro. You do need to use the special cables that came with your APM Pro, or you need to make some special cables. All connectors are standard DuPont. If your receivers has a PPM output, you can configure your Mini APM Pro for PPM as well. Think of it as an APM 2.8 with all DuPont connectors.
Something seems to be wrong. You have a six channel receiver, but you have more than six channels connected. You even seem to have auxiliary channels connected. In the photo I sent the channels are clearly labeled (C1, C2, C3, etc.) There are also two pins for Vcc and two pins for ground. Send me a photo that includes both the Mini APM Pro and the RC receiver and I will let you know what is wrong. In any case, you are unlikely to damage either the Mini APM Pro or the RC receiver so long as you keep tabs on the Voltage and ground pins.
You might want to sign up for the DaVinci Challenge Build a Drone Workshop with Kashmir World Foundation. There are many things you are going to need to learn. For now, look in the box that came with your Mini APM Pro. You should find two cables that have three wires on one side and three, one wire connectors on the other. If you are having trouble finding the cables, search www.thanksbuyer.com for Mini APM Pro and take a close look at the cables that come with the flight controller. On the RC receiver, each output has three pins. The top pin is for signals, middle is for voltage, and bottom is for ground. All the voltage (middle) pins are common and all the ground (bottom) pins are common. So you only need to connect one of the voltage pins from the RC receiver to the Mini APM Pro and one of the ground pins from the RC receiver to the Mini APM Pro. The top pins are signals, so these need to be connected to the signals pins on the APM Pro.
Ok thanks... But I think I will buy another one cause mine is not like the bangood one...
But which is better APM 3.1 or APm Pro?..
If you refer to mini apm 3.1 it's an old board now, in mini boards consider the pixracer it's supported developers it's 32bits, can use the 2mb,etc. http://www.auav.co/product-p/xr-v1.htm
You can use the latest firware and you are supporting developing with your purchase http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/pixracer-with-ardupilot?commentId...
