I cannot see any green bars to calibrate radio signals (AC quad, new APM2 board, Mission Planner, win xp)
do you have any hints for me to debug or solve?
board has gps lock.
My thought is that the Mavlink comms is faulty one way (sending to APM direction?/bad cable)
New APM2 recvd. full board with new gps and fully soldered.
I loaded firmware for quad and APM2 easily with Oborne's Mission Planner.
then went to first step - set up of board and no green bars at all in display.
Radio says bound.
In terminal tab of MP, I get the radio values to vary with stick movement (though some appear to be large negative values at times). This is only occasionally - sometimes I cannot get into test mode.
(is there an order that things need to be done and connected?)
Terminal mode gives the 'weird' characters sometimes.
Any ideas would be most appreciated.
cannot see any CTS setting for comm port
would try another cable but cannot as connector is special
would try another PC but it develops another issue (Mission planner does not start)
I have been successful with APM 1
