Am using BRD_SBUS_OUT to operate a Gentles Ltd 6 function camera controller (part 781 here https://www.gentles.ltd.uk/gentwire/multi.htm). I have set the Brd_SBUS_Out = 3 and everything works well. Really good…
The one little caveat with this SBUS out function is the Safety Button has to be engaged (light solid) before the output will work. We can work around that, but the real issue is when the safety button is disengaged (ie safety on - light flashing) output from the SBus out port makes my device (and any S-Bus to PWM decoder I have tried go to one extreme). In my case this causes my camera to start video recording. Is there a way to a/ bypass the safety switch or b/ is there a setting that ensures the output of the S-Bus channels ensures the signal is put in a ‘hold’ like a failsafe???
So the work around for this now is we have to turn the camera off before we can make the craft safe… we would prefer being able to make the craft safe before doing anything else to it - you know for safety sake…
I have this running on a Dropix running Copter 3.5.0 and have also tested on a Pixhack (older style) running Copter 3.6.1. Both with same results.
Any thoughts would greatly appreciated
