I thank you for all the help but I'm still stuck. i believe i have it setup right but its not working. at this point I'm just trying to get an led switch to turn on from the remote. i want to use channel 7 on the remote and i have the switch plugged into #2 on the pixhawk(i think that's AUX 2) i have every ch#_Function to RC_passthru and the relays set to -1. but i don't get how to assign a channel to an auxiliary. i'm also trying to control a servo with the knob on the remote. What am I doing wrong? thanks again for all the help
I feel I'm getting lost on this path to solving the problem. Don't fully understand what you mean. is there any way you can email me? maybe quicker that route. My email is Sheldon.email@example.com I greatly appreciate all the help.
I'm using a Pico switch to turn on Leds_(first Problem)
i want to use channel 7 input to control it
i will start with the settings i believe i needed to change for this to work
On the pixhawk i have the relay plugged into AUX1(RC9-Written on top)
BRD_PWM_COUNT @ 4 (this is the same setting on my X8 pico switch)
RC9_FUNCTION @ 1 (RCPassThru)
RELAY_PIN @ -1
RELAY_PIN2 @ -1
RELAY_PIN3 @ -1
RELAY_PIN4 @ -1
I did a radio calibration. I dont know what you mean by servo 7 location.
do the numbers on the top of the pixhawk(RC 5, RC 6, etc..) directly correspond to the rc signals the transmitter is putting out? so RC 5 is channel 5 on the transmitter?
When i make changes to the parameters and write them do I have to restart the pixhawk for them to take effect or is it immediate?
i can provide pictures if need just let me know
Good news. got it working. i didn't realize that i need to power it. I thought the pixhawk would power it. got my camera taking pictures, gimbal working and leds coming on remotely. thanks again for all the help.
I am having a similar issue with my new plane setup (HK Hawkeye) with an apm2.6. Like my apm copters, I would like to setup ch7 or 8 to RTL (come home and circle until I regain control) but I can't find where to set that up.
Can someone point me to the screen or parameter on where that might be?
Thank you for any help!
