I'm curious as to how others are setting up their power modules with their 2.1 as my results are a bit all over the place.
For reference, I read through the PM documentation and I am comfortable manually adjusting voltage and current. http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-power-module-configuration-in-mission-planner.html
I have a Pixhawk 2.1 with a Standard carrier board (Still waiting on the Edison version).
I am using a 79Ah Sealed Lead Acid AGM battery. The measured voltage with a Fluke multimeter is 12.16V.
My first test was with a genuine 3DR PM connected to POWER1 on the 2.1. Below are the results from Mission Planner:
The voltage is a little off, but about where it was with the Pixhawk 1. It looked to be reading current just fine.
Next, I tested the Power Brick Mini that came with my kit.
The voltage was quite a bit off and I wasn't seeing any current. Should I be manually setting the parameters for A12/A13 in the parameter tree and then doing all the calculations? I've done that a few times and have got some inconsistent results when I reboot the system.
