I am curious if the instructions are the same with ArduCopter or if any changes need to be made to the sketch??

Thanks guys
I did not fly with it but I did test on my workbench and worked fine.

Hello I am using MegaPirateNG 2.9 R6 on an Crius AIO 1.1. And I enabled Copter Leds (LED_MODE through MP) for arming and GPS and they are working great!!
Does anybody knows if the MegaPirateNG 2.9 R6 support piezo buzzer and how on CRIUS AIO ?

Thanks in advance!

Show us how you connected motors and propellers rotation direction.

Hi,

This time we need some testers !!!

At the moment I am looking for people able to test AIO v1 + PPM Rx.
It does not have to mounted on the bird. Just board, connected PPM Rx and Mission Planner on the USB.

The most interesting would be FrSky 27ms flashed Rx but any PPM configuration is ok. If someone has 4ch,10ch or 12ch(!!!) Rx it would be great as well

You need 10-15 minutes to be done with tests.

pls PM me if you can help ....

No tests - no good code .... do not cry later

I used the HEXA + setup show here: https://code.google.com/p/megapirateng/wiki/confighw

She's up and flying, but when I use Altitude hold or Loiter she bounces up and down. I'm guessing this has to do with the barometer. The whole board is enclosed, but I will try covering the baro as well.

FYI- Here is a great flight mode setup video. He is using the Crius AIOP and a Turnigy 9X.

So I adjusted the PID's and she is alot better. But one weird thing that happened... I had it in Loiter mode and it was fine, but when I switched to RTH it turned back towards me but then came straight at me like a bullet and went to the ground. Any thoughts?

datalogging


I found that the data logging isnt really giving any data....(or say missing a few colums even they are set)... something is missing i guess?

Region Of Interest - ROI


I'm using MegaPirateNG 2.9 R6 and up to now everything seems OK but one event in mission planning is not working as before (2.8): event ROI is not working anymore.

If you set a ROI after the event copter just rotate yaw to face ROI for one second but then it continue flying with yaw at next waypoint. It's too bad as ROI was a good function.

It seems to be an Arducopter bug and in DIYdrones forum Randy is suggesting to set YAW_OVR_BEHAVE=1

With YAW_OVR_BEHAVE=1 after ROI command yaw points correctly to ROI location ...but before ROI command yaw doesn't point anymore to next waypoint..

Have you got some experience in this area? Any suggestion?

Hi,
I think it's more ArduCopter then mpNG related. If there is no solution on ArduCopter forum ... we have to wait for them to find it

I would not change anything what is not poorly board hardware related ...

Hello,

I have a problem with my receiver and failsafe not working which seems to be exactly this issue which has been solved some months ago:

http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/.../detail?id=471

So my question: is it possible to implement this in the next version of MPNG ?
Or will this only be done in the 2.9 arducopter port ?

Best regards,
Daniel

Looks like this is already implemented in the MPNG beta in SVN. See line 17 of "control_modes.pde" here. So it will be in the next release of MPNG. In the meantime, you could do the same modification to your local copy of "control_modes.pde".

Hello, thanks for your help.
Could it be possible just to replace the entire control_modes.pde file from your link given, for version 2.7R4 or for version 2.8R3 ?

There are too many other changes in the new version of the file. If you modify the 'read_control_switch()' function in the MPNG 2.8R3 version of "control_modes.pde" to make it look like this I believe it will do what you want:
Code:
static void read_control_switch()
{
    static bool switch_debouncer = false;

    byte switchPosition = readSwitch();

    if (oldSwitchPosition != switchPosition) {
        if(switch_debouncer) {
            oldSwitchPosition       = switchPosition;
            switch_debouncer        = false;

            // ignore flight mode changes if in failsafe
            if( !failsafe ) {
                set_mode(flight_modes[switchPosition]);
    
                if(g.ch7_option != CH7_SIMPLE_MODE) {
                    // set Simple mode using stored paramters from Mission planner
                    // rather than by the control switch
                    do_simple = (g.simple_modes & (1 << switchPosition));
                }
            }
        }else{
            switch_debouncer        = true;
        }
    }
}
