Mr.MAPGPS, how did you save the raw navdata into txt file?

You can convert the TXT file into Excel format for easy to read.
Could you kindly explain me how you were able to save the raw navadata into txt file?

Hey Guys, If using a Nano, where does pin 2 on the drone connect on the Nano? It goes to the "RAW" pin on the mini but the Nano doesn't have one labeled that.

Thanks.

It goes to VIN.

Sweet! Just got it working! Thanks for everyone that developed and worked on this and the instructions!

FYI, I am running the latest firmware on the drone (using android devices), using a Nano and a Futaba FASST radio system (using the Ornage RX from Hobbyking).

One question. I want to be able to flip a switch to go back and forth between the RX and wifi control. Can I just switch off the 12v out to the nano to disable the RX mod and allow wifi again?

No, unless you can change the program that is uploaded to the drone. It has the hooks for it, but so far there was no need for switching back. Why would you want to go back to wifi?

Well, probably would not be too many times that I would want to go back to wifi but just in case. So even if the nano doesn't get any power from the drone, it will still prevent the wifi control from working?

Yes, because if you remove power from the Arduino, the program on the drone is still running. This is why I said you would have to change the program that is running on the drone to cover that situation. It's not that hard, but it would have to be done.

oh, I thought the program on the drone was uploaded each time you boot with the nano connected and was in non-persistent memory. I thought that if you boot the drone without the nano connected that wifi control was operable again.

This is true, I thought you were talking about 'hot switching' between RC and iDev control. A 'cold switch', meaning if you cycle power and the Arduino does not get powered, works by design.

Oh, yeah, I mean a switch to disconnect the power to the nano, then boot the drone. Cool, thanks for your development on this.

Just disconnect the plug from the Arduino to the drone and everything is back to 'normal' when you power up the drone. This is the beauty of Plug&Play.

But don't let the cable just dangle. It can cause the drone to act 'twitchy' if it is flopping around in front of the sensors.

No Response on Cyclic with 6xi and 11x Zero

I have installed the drs009.
Setup as per instructions.
But could not get the cyclic to work.
It takes-off and lands perfectly and Rudder is also working.
But the Right stick (Cyclic) is not working

Would be great if someone can help here.

my setp

Specktrum 6 ch receiver
6xi and 11x
both have same issue.

Use SETUP mode and make sure the cyclic is working in LAND, FM1 and FM2! Most people check the sticks only in LAND. Sometimes the switch used to switch the flightmode also switches a curve...
