I finally received my replacement Pixhawk last week and now need to install it and get everything back in running condition. I have not had to set up a flight controller and integrate into an air frame before so I want to make sure I am going in the right order and taking all the precautions I can.
Here is the list I've put together to capture the high level steps...
- Install Copter firmware
- Connect all wiring
- Set parameters specific to Iris+ in Mission Planner
- What parameters?
- Set failsafes
- Set flight modes
- Assure RC Tx links to RC Rx and Telemetry is working
- Calibrate all sensors and radios
- Install GPS Tracker
- Test flight
- Mode sequence
Is there anything else or other details you would add to this list?
