As some delays Copter-4.0.4-rc3 has been released for beta testing and should appear in the ground stations within a few hours of this post. The changes vs -rc2 are in the Release Notes and copied below. In short it is a relatively small set of changes and hopefully this will be the last beta before the official release.
- Bug Fixes and minor enhancements:
a) Compass ids from missing compasses reset after compass cal
b) LIS3MDL compass enabled on all boards
c) Lightware I2C lidar fix when out-of-range
d) Parameter erase fix for revo-mini and other boards that store to flash
The 1st issue was really the blocker because we want to be sure that users find the new compass prioritisation features works well. The issue was that if you removed a compass it was somewhat difficult to clear the pre-arm “compass missing” message. With this fix once you do a compass calibration it will clear out any missing compasses. The other way to resolve it is to go into MP’s compass prioritisation table and move down a few rows so that it’s out of the top 3.
All feedback is greatly appreciated!
