  • Hi all, can someone please help?

    Did my maiden on the Sky Hunter last weekend and although successful (I didn't crash) There are a couple of issues that I need help with.

    1/ EKF Vibe was showing in red at the bottom of the artificial horizon screen.

    2/ error terrain alt variance warning was showing throughout most of the flight.

    I didn't notice these warnings as I was using a tablet with DroidPlanner app.

    I was playing around with the log files to see if I could make sense out of the analysis side of Mission Planner when I came across these issues. The log files in question are attached if someone would be kind enough to have a quick look to see if I should be worried.

    Thanks in advance, I hope someone can help.

  • What is the Max Baud Rate on Pixhawk Serial 4/5 ports.

    I want to setup a Range Finder and it can operate at 921600 baud.

  • Has anyone connected a Lightware  SF30/B 50 meters Range Finder to a Pixhawk ?

    This is instructions for connecting a Lightware SF10 .

  • LOG_BACKEND_TYPE does anyone know what this does and what it should be set to ?  thank you .

  • @DirtCreature,

    nice to know.......where to go (when I run out of 3DR OEM cables :)


    @martin @thomas and everyone else!

    This page has a link to all the cables and connectors at DigiKey.

    This page links to a cart I made at DigiKey (don't know how long shared carts last). You can edit to your needs.

    Each cable is double ended with 12", so each makes 2 cables of 6" if you don't need both with the hirose.

    Doesn't look like helibatics has cables anymore.

Flashing in Pixhawk

Hi everyone,Recently I've got my first pixhawk CUAV v5+. I'm amazed to see one thing that through one USB port only we can flash code and read the logging data. To understand how is it working I started looking schematic but didn't understand anything. Can someone please tell how is that working?
