I am successfully using a 4G LTE network connection to send bidirectional telemetry AND HD (1280X1024 / 25fps) Video from my drones. The video is perfect, the telemetry is perfect - regardless of range (assumes 4G is available). I use my cell phone

I would like to build a stand-alone telemetry tracker based on the analog signal strength of the incoming signal. I plan on using a relatively large DISH antenna or 4 YAGIs, and 4 receivers . The signal strengths would be tested against each other,
For many versions of MP, I cannot graph log files. I can load and "play" the log files, but I cannot GRAPH the telemetry log files.
I have tried several computers, removed and re-installed MP, but NOTHING works!
I need to be able to graph the logs.
I'm running Mission Planner 1.3.56. I have been unable to graph logs for some time. I have upgraded with every release in an attempt to get this working again. While I can't say exactly when the problem started, it was at least 3 revisions ago.
I'm flying the latest FW on a PixHawk and need a PWM signal that (preferably) is the average of all the other PWM (Servo) outputs. I flying a quad, so Servo 5 is available.
In MP, there is an option to set SERVO 5 to "Throttle" using option "70", b
I'm using the latest PixHawk firmware (I believe it is 3.5.5), and I want to adjust some parameters that don't appear in MP at all. This is a multirotor quad.
For example: In the SERVO FUNCTIONS, MP has options 0-80, yet in the ARDUPILOT ORG "docs",
I just received a 3-Axis gimbal with a Storm32 controller. I loaded the GUI and find that the board has version 090 firmware. The board is V 1.3.
I can read and write to the board with the GUI. I put a camera on the cradle and attached a 4S battery
I'm looking for a small board (Rpi-size) that will run Dronekit AND has 4 real hardware serial ports.
I don't want to use USB->RS-232 converters, or bit-bang the pins. I need 4 real, hardware UARTS.
And it would be a bonus if the RS-232 ports were 5V
It would be nice if MP had a feature where you input the maximum distance your craft can normally fly.
Then, when entering a mission, whenever a route exceeded 80% of that figure, the route vector would change color (say to red).
I realize that there a
Is there any way to increase the speed of the download in the MAP TOOL function of MP?
Google can download an offline map in seconds or minutes. MP takes hours or days. I travel quite a bit and need to download some rather large areas (like most of
I'm using the latest version - 1.3.51 build 188.8.131.52 and every time I try to graph a log file, I get the message "COMPILE FAILED"! Is there a work-around?
Using APM 3.2.1:
It is my understanding that if I am flying in AUTO MODE and have GPS failsafe set to "2" and the craft loses GPS, it will go into ALT-HOLD mode. And it is also my understanding that it will not "leave" this failsafe mode unless it ge

I can't upload waypoints anymore. This function used to work until very recently.
I'm using Mission Planner 1.3.49, and I also tried 1.3.48. Same problem.
Now EVERY time I try to upload any mission I get the following error:
I found what looks like a mini PixHawk clone in one of my electronics boxes, and I would like to identify it - especially the pinout.
Attached are the top and bottom views of the 40mm X 40mm board. Not shown is a small PCB that contains the magneto
Is there a way to adjust the "scale factor" of joysticks in MP? That is, if an input pulse width range is 1200 to 1800 uSec, can I change that so what actually gets sent out is 1000 - 2000 uSec?
I have been able to connect a "SM 600" simulator joy
I need to be able to control my craft with a joystick. This function is broken in the later versions of MP. I would like to know what is the latest version with fully functional joystick control, and where is a reliable source for that version?
