Newbie and still getting used to the format here so I posted this initially in the wrong category. Here is my earlier post from "Aerial photography"...
Hello, new member, first post here. Setting up APM1 on a boat - Traxxas Spartan. Had loaded ArduRover 2.0 to APM through Arduino IDE. I was playing with some configuration settings in Planner and trying to figure out the whole AUTO mode thing. First strange behavior I encountered was throttle suddenly going on full, with no RC control. Pulled the battery connection and troubleshot that a bit by removing APM - RC system worked fine. Then when I reconnected APM I got no power at all when I connected the battery. Seems to me the firmware may have been corrupted? Tried rewriting ArduRover to APM and then ArduPlane from Planner but same result each time.
After reading through several posts I'm thinking it would be a good idea to erase the Eeprom. Can someone let me know if that sounds reasonable and tell me what is the procedure for doing that? I saw a post by Chris Anderson that mentioned the code line "CLI setup/erase", but I'm not sure where or how to enter that.
