I need a little help here :)
APM 1280 with Hotel 1.0 Oilpan Downloaded the latest mission planner after I couldn't access terminal in the previous version I had. I've never tried terminal before this. The reason I tried terminal was I added the DIY Drones Compass I just got in the mail and wanted to test it in terminal mode. Everything works as it did before I can still upload new firmware to the APM and it seems to work fine as before in flight data.
I did check the box in hardware and input the declination for my location. I am running windows 7 and everything else seems fine. Except when I try to access terminal I get an initialization message and then it goes into gibberish (a lot of it) If I hit the screen with the mouse and hit enter it hangs the terminal and the planner. I have tried the slide switch doesn't change anything (that I notice)
What is it I'm doing wrong :) I have read the post here I could find and the manual and I'm not getting it? Everything else seems to be fine just cant get terminal to work.
