"Is there a way to look at the servo ppm values in Mission Planner to see if the PixHawk is working? I suspect my trigger board or CHDK script is not working but I'd like to verify I have my PixHawk configured correctly before I just to…"
Try this; with some fairly simple programming on the board I can trigger my S100 using the camera control from pixhawk.
If you need the code, I can dig that out of my home computer later. I hacked it out…"
"hello, I am using a canon sx230 with apm 2.6. I only use a cut usb wire - connecting GND & VCC to APM pins. I don't use step-up or any module in between.
Have you tried to trigger the camera using the 'gear' switch on your…"
"Thanks for jumping to help, it is a bit confusing. I have a 3DR X8+ that I am preparing for surveys, Just got the Canon S100 mounted and did some flights using CHDK and the time lapse setting, but need the trigger. I sent a friend…"
It's frustrating, but when you work out what is going on, it all makes sense.
It's actually good timing that this has come up as we have just developed a board to solve the problem and we have a few pre-production prototypes…"
I ran into the same issue this spring trying to fire an ELPH 300HS powershot. The eflite board doesn't do crap.For some reason it doesn't pass the signal through. Instead, you have to make your own firing circuit using an IC…"
"Much Obliged Stephan!
I've got some jumpers with single mole connectors, think I'll use those to get +5 to the center rail on the Pixhawk..Hott dignity...!
Then like Kevin did, I'll bite the bullet and buy the TUFFWING cable.…"
"Big surprise (there "bug")
I was triggering the camera with an old moto phone charger plugged into a powerstrip. Just flip the switch for roughly a half second... and it snaps the shot. So that variable is checked off as…"
