"Hmm. I think I got confused by the terrible nomenclature of the analogWrite() function, which actually is supposed to be used on digital (not analog) pins. That said, this post suggests that the analog pins carry on numbering after the digital…"

"It seems to me that it isn't. Running the code below, one of the servos of the plane starts to move very fast as soon as APM2 gets a 3D fix. From that, I think the pin is not #7. Any other clue of the right pin number? static void…"

"Sure, I think you can use any of the free Analog pins. Just add an analogWrite(pin number) command to the code where you want it. "

"Hi Chris, One of the things that I like most about APM 2 is that you were able to encapsulate all the components in a single block. Because of that I am avoiding to use an external GPS. As an alternative, I though about using the NAV Leds pins…"

GPS Fix external led

Hi all,I have a prolem that my APM2 board is in a hidden location inside my plane and I cannot see the status leds, specially the GPS Fix led.I was wondering if it is possible to connect an external led to one of the APM2 interfaces/outputs in order to  reflect the GPS Fix status (even if it requires coding).Any suggestions on how to do this?Thank you.Best regards,JaimeSee More

Voltage measurement problem

Hi all,I am trying to setup voltage measurement on my ArduPilot Mega / Shield board.However I am really confused about the resistor I have to install.On the manual it says that I have to solder a 3.9K resistor for each cell I want to measure.Since I want to measure a 3S battery pack, I soldered the 3 resistor that came with my board.However the voltages shown aren't right.The command line shows the following when connecting a fully charged battery:test] batteryVolts: 1:3.82, 2:7.74, 3:11.60,…See More
