I appreciate the way
yes I want to control the RunCam Split Mini because it does not support pwm
the BetaFlight, CleanFlight, KISS FC, INAVFlight controllers
some of them have the source code available but ask the
and they already support it so I guess it’s just take it and modify it right?
I appreciate the way
So this is an enhancement request to add support for controling a RunCam using it’s UART port. I don’t know what controls are available but perhaps it’s somewhere on the runcam website.
P.S. I’ve reworded the request to remove the regular confusion about hardware and software. To be clear:
- ArduPilot is software
- Pixhawk is hardware
Thank you for reformulating
I already asked him and the mini does not support commands by pwm
I just saw this thread. It would be great to have support for controlling the Runcam Swift 3 using a UART. The Swift 3 seems so be an upgrade that improves the control features. Betaflight implements it. Not sure how much work it would be to implement it into ArduPilot for the PixHawk.
some developer got the request
Looks like the same request. Any plans to implement it?
Run Cam provided a PWM controller for their RunCam Split series but discontinued this. I reached out to RunCam support for verification. https://shop.runcam.com/runcam2-remote-cable/ The only way to start and stop Record on the RunCam Split cameras is via UART control supported in betaflight and other similar firmware. I fly Betaflight and love it but nothing beats Ardupilot for GPS control and other features that come with it. Most of my quads have Arducopter running with a RunCam Split 2s w/ Record start stop controlled via the PWM controller. I have a new build in the works again running ArduCopter but cannot buy a PWM controller. If there is any way to give this control directly from the Pix controller that would solve everything. Thanks again for such a magnificent product.
I have enabled serial control through this PR: https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot/pull/12810 looking for testers!
Brilliant work! This is in master? I can compile for an omnibus F4 Pro?
Yes and yes - let me know if you need to know any more
Thread here: RunCam serial driver - alpha testers wanted
Good day, if i want use the runcam split with recorder can be use under the firmware version 4.0.0 coz im interested use it or via storm32 board but there no a wiring scheme for make it work
The driver is only in master currently and no idea how you would make it work with a storm32
i would like command the board like start recorder… take photos using my radio controller x9d plus.
You already test it in this way?
With a runcam? Yes it does enable that.
Thank you for the info you gave me… i will flash the master version and i will start test it with the introductions you gave me… im lucky coz the only uart port I’ve free is the uart 5.
can you send me pls the url so i will clone it in Ubuntu so i can build the fmuv4 coz i will test it on my pixracer… i will let you know the results
It’s in master https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot
ok… i will build it and flash… i will tell you the results…, i can set any channel in my radio x9d with any free switch… correct?
Just ask also to integrate it in the future releases pls
How about the baud rate…?
