Nice tests and intresting results!
Can you send your setting for M8N as u-center onfiguration file?
I have the cheapest M8N board (BeStar BN-880) on the market from BG and haven't got time to make proper settings for it. Like to try it and…"
"Nice idea! Few question came in my mind.
I also like to know the current consumption ?
Does it have any effect to battery balance? I'm quessing the current from balancer pins is very small like micro amps, but is it equal between pins?
"Very nice! There's few similar designs now. EvvGC, VRBrain and this one for example. Wondering which has the best future with the firmware. Is there too big differencies between hardware for "cross" porting firmwares and GUIs?
"We should look what has been changed in AC3.1 AP_GPS_UBLOX and after that consider if need to change it for Neo-6M.
I made few months ago some testing to find out what config settings APM AC2.91b code actually overwrites succesfully to ublox.…"
Double check your wiring, specially APM Output - ESC . I tried to look from picture, but can't say for sure if those are right. 3-wire cable from esc to APM should be in order:
-brown is ground and it should be on "bottom"
"I quickly looked at your log. I'm not expert, but found:
-You had GPS Failsafe and Fence enabled
-From log i can see you had one gps glitch error # 11 in 709 and multiple Fence Failsafe # 9 between 712-811
Bad gps data [# of SATS and bad HDOP] and…"
"This is great and thx for posting!
I found one a small problem. If using Custom maps in MP Flight Plan window, GridUI window can't find those map tiles? After in-out zooming it finds Google satellite, but not custom tiles....
"Double check your wiring.
Also is the ftdi board 3.3V or 5V ?
I have one ftdi cable that connects ok and can read config settings from eeprom, but writing timeouts everytime. Still mystery to me, but i changed another ftdi board and it worked ok.…"
Do we actually need to have APM TX wire connected to gps? Simple solution to prevent APM overwriting gps setup is to disconnect tx pin, if we can use gps only in "listen" mode.
I'm also using NEO-6M from HK with APM1 + quad and have mixed…"
