Hi all, I've read the instructions, installed the software and can compile it (make) without any error messages. But when I issue make install I get these: LD…Continue

HopeRF RFM22B transceiver (868MHz legal in Europe)

Hi all, I'm wiling to write the Arduino code required to replace the expensive and illegal (in Europe) 900MHz XBee  telemetry modules with the un-expensive and legal HopeRF RFM22B modules. But for…Continue

"It is a great platform, we have one of them. Their bigest issue is the three year old outdated software. But they are working on it. @chris did they give you an estimative when will they release an updated PX4 Firmware version?"

Amilcar Lucas commented on Hunter Parris's blog post Overlaying GPS Coordinates for Camera Crosshairs
"Basically the existing code does it the other way around: - You tell the target coordinates (including altitude) and it points the camera there. What you plan to do is the other way around: - You point the camera manually at some point, and it…"

"Great! What are your plans: Zynq or cyclone V SoC ? I've been working with both Xilinx and Altera, and with VHDL and SystemVerilog, so maybe I can help. It will be nice to help you out."

"Ok my fault :-) Just uploaded the bootloader.hm_trp.433.hex and uploaded the firmware. Working smoothly now. Loading the config is working as well.Now taking care of the other module and give it a try with the APM and MP. Thanks again for the…"

Marcin Krawczyk replied to Amilcar Lucas's discussion HM-TRP 868, Sik software link problems
"Wrong :-) You have to use different bootloader for different freq (I don't know, what is bootloader.hm_trp.hex for), i.e. for 433MHz module you have to…"

"Marcin, Thank you for the fast reply.I will give it a try tomorrow, need to get a 1000pF as it was missing in my stock :-) I suppose you just need to load the hex file and press run in the slabprog or am I seeing this too simple?"

Profile Information

About Me:
An Electrical Engineer who majored in control and robotics.
Worked with FPGAs for the past 10 years.

Professionally designs and programs real-time embedded systems for high resolution image processing and automotive applications.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I like slow fliers, and as much hightech as possible.
I'm working on improving the camera mount code to provide tracking and stabilization.
Later on I might even try to do some image processing, the FPGAs are getting cheaper day by day. Optical target tracking anyone ? ;)

I installed Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers on Mac OSX 10.58.

I want to setup for Arduino IDE and svn use on Google, I use terminal commands to get current svn builds from DIYDrones but want to be able to create new repository for my changes and do quick compares to integrate new designs as the appear on DIYDrones. I loose to much time manually going thru the code changes from all the contributors. I like to use X-Code to review code too. Thanks for any help or direction to a good source of online help. It is a lot to get these sw tools working together, but will be much better for fast development and trouble shooting. Cheers
