At one point in time i was getting somewhere with my arducopter but the wheels seem to have fallen off big style recently and i'm now experiencing real problems and would appreciate some tips…
main issue at the moment it getting the configurator to recognise that i have a transmitter connected.
I've stripped the APM/Oilpan out of my build and have it connected to an old thinkpad via usb.
The receiver (AR9000 - no satellite attached) is connected - signal cables only to the APM and drawing power from the far left set of pins and i havbe a good bind with my DX8
I can connect the APM/Oilpan successfully - and can see the gyro/acc graphs moving around.
When i attempt to calibrate my transmitter - nothing - the various control sliders on the screen don't move as i move the sticks.
Looking at the APM the blue led next to PPM is slowly flashing.
Could anyone offer some advice?
Attempted the above with an AR8000 receiver but no luck with that either.
