I have a ardupilot 2.8 and want to install several features for this quad.
My intent is to build my own topographical surveying drone.
The copter has, or Im attempting to install:
3dr telemetry set with Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 attached to the transmitter
5.8ghz fpv system, with minimOSD
arducopter 2.8 with external gps antenna
ultrasonic height sensor
optical flow sensor
2 axis camera (standard servos) gimbal with Canon SX260hs geotagging camera using CHDK
FAA regulation aircraft lighting system (off, flight, flight+landing, Airshow)
retractable landing gear.
However, Im finding out I have a problem with getting everyting connected to the APM. It appears that some of these components require the same pins, or require modification to the boards jumpers that would make the other item(s) not useable.
Can anyone help me get all this stuff connected up? Perhaps reassign the gimbal to another set of channel pins or something?
Thank in advance...
