"I had the same issue, then followed Thomas' advice and set the MIS_RESTART parameter to 1. Once you do that, you should be able to reset the waypoints with your RC Tx by toggle the set waypoint channel while in Manual mode.
I haven't tried it yet…"
"Well, thank you for that. I didn't know that parameter was available. I do have it set to (0), resuming the mission after Auto mode selection.
This is a mixed blessing, as we really need both behaviors. Pausing for traffic (Hold) and then (Auto)…"
Hi,I posted the following on the Tower (DroidPlanner) Git issue forum, and received a reply that this may be an ArduRover issue, rather than an OCU software issue. Interestingly, when I use MissionPlanner I don't seem to have the same problems -…
"Thanks for the info. I figured something like that was the development path, but couldn't find any definitive info.
It looks like I am pouring over the code as best I can tonight...might as well be reading a Icelandic newspaper! Learning more…"
I was only aware of the two different flight stacks from the PixHawk dot org page, and just plugged away in Mission Planner to load 2.47. I still don't know how the 'middleware layer' applies (or if it is applicable). So, news to…"
"Are you still researching design concepts for long distance, and are you open to sub-surface concepts?
I have been tinkering with an idea for a few years now, based on the same principle as the Aereon 26 from the early 1970's..."
OK - Does anyone have definition of what the rover firmware was built on?I have been all over the net trying to locate the default system information for the 2.4.7 firmware. Ultimately, I need to build a new platform, Autostart ID, and custom…
"Thanks for the input Phil. For now, suffice it to say we routinely automate anything that rolls or floats, but currently utilize more commercial systems. The PixHawk has a lot of potential, and we want to see how far we can take it.
We are mainly…"
I know there has been some discussion about reverse pathing and navigation, something I am very interested in. Anyone who has run a full sized vehicle in a ditch knows how important this can be for self recovery of the unmanned asset. And,…
The RTCA SC-203 wrote a 'Best Practices' document that was submitted to the FAA back in the late fall of 2006. Through a complete botch of this submission, I believe the document led to the Jan/Feb announcement by the FAA, effectively…"
"LTA (Lighter than air) aircraft are not exempt from any of the current FAA rulings for UAVs, so I am not too sure what advantage a blimp would be. In fact, unless you have a trailer or large van to move your aircraft around in the effort is not…"
"As far as I know, which is diminutive in the grand scope of things, there is NO way to fly ANY unmanned aircraft in US unrestricted airspace for commercial profit without a site (or aircraft experimental) COA.
You can expect to be required to show maintenance logs and intervals, flight data, flight demographics (population density, weather, location, etc.), equipment procurement, etc, etc, etc. As far as we know now, you may be required to show…"
I have quite a bit of information that may interest you. I have flight data from all of our civil and military flights over the past 4 years, including most of the disaster scenarios in the US. Several different platforms and several…"
