"I guess I figured this out. All of the declarations are in AP_HAL.h. This is why the core files are ignored."

Hello!I'm trying to compile the Arducopter sketch with an addition that I made. I'm having problems with the compiler not recognizing delay and uint8_t. And when I include the core files I get an error because I am redeclaring definitions. Here is a…

Brandon Hurd replied to Brandon Hurd's discussion Optical Flow Code Working on Arduino MEGA, but not APM 2.5 in Learning to program the Ardupilot Mega
"I have a development. I plugged the camera into a different power pin on the APM 2.5 and the numbers changed, so i'm guessing there might be something with the 5V supply messing with the pixel values I am sampling. 
Do you have any suggestions on…"

So here is what I'm having trouble with now. I wrote a driver for a CMOS chip and then I also have some code that will calculated the optical flow using the images from the camera. My code works perfect on the Arduino MEGA, but when I plug it into…

Brandon Hurd replied to Brandon Hurd's discussion Guide to setup APM 2.5 without using Mission Planner in Learning to program the Ardupilot Mega
"Ok, well maybe I need the clarify... I'm pretty knew at coding, but I have come along way since December.

I'll start by trying to figure out why I can't see the gyro movement in Mission Planner when I upload the firmware through Arduino. I can view…"

Hi,Thanks everyone for all the help I have been getting. I was wondering if there are instructions on how to setup the ArduCopter code. For example, how to calibrate the gyros, radio, and anything else I might want to do.Thanks!

Here is my situation. I have my own camera setup and code that I have written to proform optical flow on a ATMEGA 2560 and now I need to incorporate this onto the ARDUPILOT 2.5. Question:Where header file should I be modifying to ad my code in. I…
