Don - Once logs are downloaded, this is where they are on the PC that was connected..
C:\Program Files\APM Planner\logs
The flashlogs show up as *.log documents.For example: 2012-08-10 22-09 18.log
Enabling the features Jason mentions would provide, on the next flight (I think), a recording of the drive to each motor ESC. In default mode, only the throttle in / throttle out shows up.
As I mentioned, it was hiding in plain view...
This is after getting a connection established with the Terminal tab.
At the "Arducopter 2.x " prompt, type 'logs' (and, of course, press Enter)
You then should have a 'Log' prompt.
Then type 'enable motors' (press Enter).
The response abobe is shown displaying all the logs enabled for the flashram.
Then type 'enable raw' (press Enter)
ditto showing all the logs enabled.
Nvrmnd Jasonshort - See post following. It still would be nice to have a command chart of the CLI. Yes, it could change with the nex release but at least once one was made, it only needs to be updated.
Have been following with interest as I suddenly had the same problem, very random spikes, in all 3 axis's.
Checking the .log file I found the spikes on the _in channels, and hooking a PWM meter to the Rx output revealed random spikes on the channels.
Changing the Rx had no effect, so I looked at the Tx, which is a Futaba 9CHAP with a FASST module.
Luckily I have another identical Tx and swapping the two solved the problem. The spikes were being generated by an intermittent in the Tx.
Just thought I would broaden the field of discussion as its not a fault I would have suspected, and my focus was purely on the Hexa.
sure. BTW, you can type help to dump a command list at any time.
Hi, I have the same problem! I flew with my tri for about 10 minutes with no problem and suddenly the motor turn on full speed and it flipped over and buried into the ground. I didn't read out the log yet but I really don't know what happened. I've got no bullet connectors (i've soldered everything). My tri is resting in peace and I've started to build a quad right now. I'm also not flying anymore before someone can tell me what's the problem. Letting a full carbon tri and quad crash again costs to much money for me. I have the APM 2.5 and used the 2.73 firmware for the tri. Please help
