I made a quad copter with apm 2.8 and it works almost stable and need some more tuning and modification in parameters. But now I need to install a gps to my flying machine. I already have one ME-1000 RW gps module. It has 6 pins Vcc, Hnd, Rx, TX, Rs232 Rx, Rs232Tx. I tried to connect this With my apm i used rs232 Rx and TX pin to connect it with my apm. After everything I connected it to the mission planner. But mission planner did not recognize the gps. Is any one used this module with your apm. I have its data sheet and shared here. Please let me know the procedure to make my quad equipped with this device.ME-1000RW.pdf (514.9 KB)
You must use UART Rx and Tx (not serial RS232).
In Mission planner set your GPS Type to 5 (NMEA) and refresh rate at 1 Hz. You should also set the APM GPS Serial speed at 9600. It may work.
Google “ardupilot NMEA GPS” for more information,
Thanks ‘mlebret’. You helped me. Thanks again for your valuable help. I will try this technique.
Is that gps module i mentioned is a accurate one to fly a autonomous
flight. Or need to purchase neo series. Which neo series is more accurate
and low energy consumption.
