"I have a Surface Pro 3 with MP installed and was able to install it on the MicroSD card using this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VNsuOpkyQw.
You might use the same approach to save the maps. Please post your results. I'd like to do the…"
If I'm limited to those two servos, I could make use of relay outputs.
I see the 8 pin sets on the end of the APM 2.5 marked INPUT, adjacent to the GPS connector. Which are the other 3 Input channels?
I need 16 channels of RC control for my surveillance rover (flood lights, IR lights, vTx On/Off, camera select, cam PT&Z, plus more). Seven channels are gimbals and pots while the other nine channels are relays and a video source switch.I'm using a…
"Thanks for the feedback.
Did 3DR sell the NEO-M8Q? How did you come by "3DR configuration parameters" for the M8Q? I assume only a uBlox GPS bought from 3DR would have 3DR parameters loaded. Otherwise it would come with the original default…"
Hello All,I am using the uBlox LEA-6 v1.1 I bought from 3DRobotics two years ago. It gets good lock in the open, but it can take over five minutes to get a lock in the woods, and most of my property is wooded. And the lock is very fragile as it…
I'm getting back to my APM 2.5 after a long break with other hobbies.I have a Traxxas Summit with the APM mounted on an ABS platform, using the Power module (jumper removed.)I'm using a Futaba T9CHP radio with Dragonlink V2, APM 2.5 w/ LEA6 external…
I'm still around but haven't had much time to work with it in a while. There have been several software updates since I tried so I will have to get that sorted out first. I will update this thread when/if I make any progress.
"Very nice platform. Are you planning to stabilize the camera gimbal with the APM? How do you control the optical zoom? I have a similar camera on my rover that uses Pelco-D to operate the zoom. I was able to code a PIC to convert RC PWM to the…"
I've been doing a lot of testing lately by changing one parameter at a time to see how it affects the rover navigation. I've selected about 5 different parameters but they're spread out though both the Advanced and Full parameter lists, so I have…
"I finally found the time to try the camera gimbal function again.
I loaded 2.43beta2. I tried channels 5 & 6 but couldn't find any way to get movement from either servo. I'm using cheap Futaba servos on a ServoCity Pan and Tilt.
I can get movement…"
