Mission Planner upgrade -- get it for latest firmware

Due to the recent shift from a Subversion to a Git repository, you'll need to use the latest versions of the Mission Planner to ensure that you'll be able to get the latest ArduPlane and ArduCopter firmware. Versions from 1.0.67 up will pull from the correct Git repository. 


Google Code has currently got a file download glitch, which they're working on. So in the meantime, I've put the latest version of the Mission Planner (1.0.68) in a public DropBox folder here.

UPDATE: The regular Google Code repository is now working again.


Once Google has got the download issue fixed, the Mission Planner will be available in the download section as usual.

Update: Google has found the bug (something about "double escaping") and will have it fixed by the end of the day.

Thanks, thats great. I see we have stabilized camera outputs on two channels. Is it possible to have stick inputs to go with this and also a way to reverse the servo rotation.  I could not find that in the set-up?

Denny, instructions on changing servo direction are in the manual.

So it is, I must spend more time here.

I have it working great. All movements are dialed-in exact with a spirit level and done just using mission planner. Spare channel left over for camera trigger. As you say, it is very easy - once you know how. great job Jason. Vid, to follow.

I see that the latest version has two IP Ports settings for using the ArduPilot in HIL mode. What is the correct setting in X-Plane? As far as I could see the Wiki manual still shows the instructions for a single Port settings.

Any clues when the AP_Mount library will be used by Arducopter ?

I left a comment in SVN about it, but now that we moved to GIT my guess is that the developers did not see it.

Roger: I'm not sure I understand the question. The instructions in the manual should be correct. Could you elaborate?

In version 1.0.68  in the Simulation screen under there "Advanced IP Settings" there is now the option (might have been in previous as well) to "Enter Sim PC port" and also "Enter Planner PC Port".

Now in the wiki manual - How to set up a full hardware-in-the-loop simulation with Xplane - there are instructions on for setting only one port in X-Plane (which if have thing right is the data out from Simulator to APM MP) which would correspond to the Planner PC Port.  Where do I set/ or find the port for the Sim PC?


BTW I am using different PCs one for APM and one for X-Plane. Maybe I have gotten things wrong somewhere.
