"Many thanks for the assistance.
Not knowing what I was looking at, I connected mission planner, deleted all logs (and there were lots), disconnected and caused the faults. I then reconnected the mission planner and downloaded all that was there…"
"Hi, Thanks for the fast reply.
I have cheched the two values (I had already set the rc3_trim but not the rc3_min) and the problem unfortunately remains. The throttle still goes to full a few seconds after startup with no control present.
Hi All,My new craft is about to take its maden voyage and all looks great, however I have a small problem I cant quite sort out.I am running the standard release of arduplane. My craft is only running in manual at present. I am using a joystick…
Hi All,I am working on a new vehicle design and for the past 2 days been trying to add direct servo control to modified ardustation 2 code.It communicates with my ardupilot, heartbeat and parameter streams ok but will not directly change servo…
"Hi, thanks for the comments,
Yes, it uses a low profile slip ring I designed, there is a 6 channel in the side arm and 8 channel in the base.
Both axes have feedback which should give <1 degree accuracy, There is an arduino mini in the base…"
Hi All,This is prototype of my new pan tilt with fpv camera - video and pic attached. Here is a youtube link to the video also:http://youtu.be/4DVQK8PP_rUIt has an arduino built into it and I am just now starting on the firmware.I have designed it…
"Hi There, My original project had nothing to do with mine detection, it was an areal photography project to support mine field clearance.
I am sorry to say, there is no reliable areal mountable mine detection sensor available, If there was it would…"
Been in the UK I have to use the 2.4GHz xbee pro units rather than the 900MHz you folk in the US have access to. After a fair bit of playing and getting nowhere fast I added some buffering between the xbee and ardupilot. Using a 7404 chip I finally…
Hi all,I am writing my own code for the ardupilot 2.5 board and have the eagle files and schematics, however I am totally confused as to the pinout. (my vehicle is a bit different from a standard vehicle and connected with my work so I am not…
Hi all,After spending more than 2 days trying to get my EM406A work with my ArduIMU (v1) in binary a finally gave up.I reset it all as an NMEA gps at 38400 baud and made sure I had a working GPS that got a fix using a terminal prograjm. I ran the…
Hi,I am trying to fit my original ArduIMU v1 to an ardupilot but can not find any instructions or data online.All the details I can find are for the new flat model. Can someone point me in the right direction to get some details on installation and…
Some very interesting posts, Its clear there is a great deal of applicable technology available and possibly even some off the self systems. What I have described is my wish list for this project. I guess some will be deliverable, some (like the…"
Mission planning is good, If you can tell the UAV to go photograph an area 2km away and come back the that's great, however it does up the support and technical requirements a bit along with required…"
"Some very good points gentlemen,
One of the biggest challenges here is going to be recovery. I was keen not to have a traditional landing as often a large enough strip will not be available, there is also the training issues. Also the vegetation in…"
"Hi Morli thanks for the comments,
Krzysztof I think you have hit the nail on the head.
Once you get past the misconceptions of minefields as shown in films like 'behind enemy lines' and others then the reality is very different. What I am trying to…"
