"Hmm, well I re-uploaded the code to the board (no changes) but making sure to hit reset before and after uploading the code, and now OUT1 and OUT2 blink at the same rate as the STAT LED, but they do so out of phase. What have I done to my poor…"
Hey guys!So I am trying to do some very basic arduino programming to master the fundamentals, and something is not working as I expected it to. My board is set up with the PSEL in ESC powere'd mode, and I have a battery source applied to the 3rd…
I would like to add some simple functionality to my autopilot, chiefly a signal sent every 10 seconds or so to fire a small camera. After looking a bit through the older posts, I am still a bit confused on how one would go about doing this, any…
"Great looking project! I am particularly curious about your data logging, is that a feature of attopilot, or stand-alone hardware? (something like this) I love seeing other balsa aircraft, there is just something classy about it! They look like…"
"Ah, maybe I was thinking of the Xbee afterall. If I am not mistaken, the Xbee works to just transmit all data that comes across it, correct? no interpreting or formatting.. kind of like a repeater. The reason I ask would be for situations where…"
"For some reason I recall seeing a setup of using a daughter board to log GPS data to an SD card, was that ever discussed on this site? I know recently there is talk about ArduPilot Pro / 2.0 doing logging, but this was with the original sim…"
"Aah, do you have glass working experience? A friend and I once had a "make your own 2 channel RC 30 inch sailboat" competition, and it was a ton of fun to learn to work w/ glass. I download a program called "Freeship" to design my own hull, but it…"
"Sweet! Sailboats! Now this is a subject I have a bit more familiarity and experience with. Are you looking at a rigid wing sail for simplicity sake? What size hull are you planning, or what existing hull? Open ocean kinda necessitates a fairly large…"
"I plugged it into port 1 and 2, just to make sure it was not just the ESC output port. It may also be of note that it's a Futaba S3003, which is a "standard sized" servo - not the mini-servos usually associated with control surfaces.
When I plug a servo into my ArduPilot board, it starts off rotating clockwise slowly, but continues accelerating and turning until it pegs against full-clockwise rotation, and the motor continues to strain against the stop. That to me sounds like…
"So one thing that I noticed is that if I plug a servo into the board while it's running, the servo will turn clockwise, slowly accelerating until it pegs out fully that direction, then it just grinds against the stopping mechanism. Did you guys get…"
One simple solution for running this on two computers is to have Google Earth running on one, with X-Plane and ArduSim on the other, and the folder with the kml.kml be shared on the network. Then tell GE…"
