I am using ArduCopter 3.6.3 (with Mission Planner 1.3.62) on a Pixhawk 2.1 Cube and using the standard Power Module that it comes with, which I underdtand can cope with up to 8S batteries. I am running a large Hex (6 x 30A ESC) using a 10,000 mAh 6S battery.
I am getting some issues with setting up the Battery Monitor in Mission Planner. I am setting up:
Monitor: Analog & Current
Sensor: 6: 3DR HV Power Module APM
APM Ver: 4: The Cube or Pixhawk
I understand that this is the correct Sensor to use, especially as the “4: 3DR Power Module” sensor setting was giving me totally the wrong voltage (3-4 volts lower than measured voltage).
However, as soon as I navigate away from the Battery Monitor page and then go back to it, I see that the Sensor has switched to: “0: Other” - and I cannot make it stick.
I am not sure what impact this is having or why it is happening. Any thoughts or solutions?
Thanks for your help,
