First - thank you for looking to improve tricopter code. I find keeping orientation much easier with my tricopter vs. a traditional quad. So I fly the tricopter more than the quad. I did wonder why the tricopter didn't seem to…"
On my tricopter setup using the x8r receiver - I placed the receiver in Mode 4 by placing the provided jumpers between CH1&CH2, CH3&CH4 when binding per the manual. Receiver mode 4 maps radio channels 9-16 to conventional channel outputs…"
Thank you for the clue regarding where to look. I have my osd working again.
Arducopter instructions state to use TELEM 2. I was using TELEM 1 for the OSD. When I upgraded software I went to default settings - I've been burned in the…"
Thank you for the reply. Are you also running R800 software on minimosd? Of course I may be missing a setting in the pixhawk for the OSD to work correctly. My serial port is set for mavlink output and 57600 baud rate.
Before 3.3 I did…"
I noticed my minimosd quit displaying data once I upgraded to 3.3 on my tricopter. I'm running version R800 minimosd extra. I'm assuming there is some incompatibility now. Which version of software should I be using with the minimosd to…"
"Hi - I had this same issue with the 3DR 900mhz radio. Depends on the servo whether or not the servo twitches due to the 900mhz 3DR radio some do - some don't.
I found if I soldered a 33pf capacitor inside the servo between the incoming signal lead…"
"I started working with this last night. I didn't add a filter and things seem to be working - this matches the current documentation that RSSI PWM can be read directly. I'll test range today to ensure RSSI works properly.
What did take me a few…"
One minor issue I have every once in a while during power up of my Pixhawk is that either the 3DR radio or MinimOSD will not function. I think it's one or the other not both at the same time - I can't remember seeing both not working. …"
"I was trying out circle mode and ROI for the first time with my tricopter. My test was simply circling a tree. I couldn't set the circle radius greater than 1500 using Mission Planner 1.3.10. 1500 was still a bit too close to make interesting…"
"You may want to upgrade the GPS if you haven't already. That was the largest performance upgrade I did to my APM 2.0 board - disabling the on board Mediatek GPS and using the external ublox unit. Huge performance difference for loiter on my…"
"I suppose a quick way to accomplish what you are describing would be to simply add a relay to the positive lead of the circuit (based on the diagram link). Ensure that the buzzer positive terminal bypasses the relay. Relay could be driven by the…"
"Hi - I had my APM setup to do what you are describing. I could flip a switch to either turn on or off a sting of LEDs using the ULN2008 driver. I had an output tied to relay using channel 7 through the APM. My setup was either on or off - no…"
