No connection to Mission Planner???

Oh for the love.......

Ok, 

So I built a hex a while ago and all has been going ok....

I've had a few test flights but it not fully set up....

Now, I can't get it to connect to Mission Planner????

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm sure I've tried everything I can think of????

Even the map is not loading up.....

I have no connection to my Pixhawk either by lead or over the 3DR radio...?????

I need to complete the set-up so this really wants to be resolved... :-/

Please advise???

  • Ok, So this evening I took the Hex to the park and sure enough, it was ok considering I've not fully configured the Pixhawk....

    I wanted to just hover about to see how much time I had to do an Auto Tune....

    Turns out not much but then, I think the set-up (including that of the BATT) are all off.....

    Anyway, I have found I can connect to Mission Planner on my wifes laptop.... the only difference is hers is Windows 7 and mine is XP.... It has been ok 'til now though so it should be ok????

    One strange thing did happen though, on my wife Lap top I couldn't see the drop down options for the Flight Modes????

    • Ah-ha! I've done it!

      I found a list of old Mission Planner versions.... 

      http://firmware.ardupilot.org/Tools/MissionPlanner/

      I just picked one at random hoping it was 32Bit and sure enough it works!

      I now have all of my Flight mode responding to the radio and sending a message back through Mavlink...

      It's a shame I can't put another 6-position switch on this radio.... 

      Anyway... It's working for now so I'm happy....

      The flight I had did raise one thing though....

      Either my settings for the battery are way off or the 4 cell 6200mAh LiPo I'm carrying is not upto the job????

      OR.... My set-up is rubbish.... Hummmm...

  • I've been through all of that several times... With the lead and through the radio....

  • The last time I flew (and connected to MP) was around Christmas.....

    I had a "hard landing and wanted to check out the logs and so on... no problem back then....???

    I have also tried to un-install and re-install MP with no success?

    My daughters tablet has Tower on it and my Hex' is in my car... going to meet up tonight to see if it will work with that???

  • I'm sure it is but I'll check.....

    Would that stop it connecting?
