I’m just a standard user and I installed APM Planner 2.0.20 today. I understand it’s still relatively new so I wanted to share a couple of things I’ve found that do not function correctly. I’ve read in this forum one or two were supposed to or are currently being addressed.
Initial Setup tab
- Compass live calibration does not appear to function. A continuous error message appears “Not enough data points to calibrate the compass”
- Declination Website link does not work
- Calibrate accelerometer does not function. There is a 40 sec timer countdown but nothing else. At the end of the count a FAILURE: Failed CMD: 241 prompt appears
- Standard Parameters and Advanced Parameters screens are blank. There is no way to change anything so it basically makes the entire program useless
I thank you guys so very much for making this available to Mac users!!! I had been using Arducopter but I smashed my PC tablet yesterday and don’t want to buy a new one so I tried converting my Pixhawk to use Qgroundcontrol. That was a frustrating mess and then I discovered you guys had published an APM for Mac so I immediately downloaded it.
My bird is basically dead in the water until the next update so please, please Help a Brotha Out (HBO)
as quickly as possible.
