I am using the FTDI USB TTL-232 cable
from the elevator and speed sensor but the rudder doesn't move in the walk around test after taking a fixed position from the from the sytem ....Also with the varible control on channel six it goes to the auto mode in the middle and the mux light comes on and stays on as I progress to the RTL end of the control ....Also I cant' get the Config tool to interact with Ardu pilot so I can't add any way-points ....Any help appreciated ....
Well that indicates that be board is ok, is problem of the computer or something with the utlity. Are you using sparkfun FTDI right?
in the arduino code loading program the same behaviour. But I can upload code with the gps unplugged.
As for D7 I don't have anything hooked to it at the moment and can't ground it. Also if it helps the reset button does not work after code has been uploaded. I have to unplug everything then power it on without the usb cable plugged in. then the reset button will work.
Yes actually i first test it with EM406. Then i tried the uBlox. Make some test for me and randomly control the pin D7 and tell me if you see the red LED on the shield turn on and off.
The shield does not do a good job of dissabling the 406 for me either and makes Arduino hang forever whilst uploading code.
If I unplug the GPS, the code loads just fine.
Jordi, did you get your 406/shield combination working 100% before you moved to UBlox?
