Hi, I'm trying to write waypoints to my APM board using QGC but I get the error "Operation timed out" I think it's because QGC says my rover is in "Uninitialized mode".QGC keeps saying:…Continue

Hey Junior! Thanks for the help with ArduPilotOne. I'll look into the waypoint problem that you described. If you file an official issue report here: http://code.google.com/p/ardupilotone/issues/ it will help other users as well during the beta process.

Yes, the gps not receiving enough power is an issue I have seen before. It will be fixed if you use a 7.2 volt lipo to power the board through the external battery terminals and you unsolder the SJ1 jumper as discussed on the wiki.

The 4/4/11 code would probably work but you'd have to make sure all the svn externals (from APM) were at the right revision for that time since I hadn't specified them then. I recommend you stick with the latest code. I have 2 other people helping me with the beta testing now in my lab that started today. It is going well. Today we successfully got hardware in the loop running but noticed the communication from qgroundcontrol to the board wasn't working so we will be debugging that tomorrow.

Under the guidance gains in QGC you should see a velocity command that is set to around 1 m/s or so. It uses the GPS velocity primarily for this. There should also be a reverse boolean on the throttle within QGC.
