My APM is configured with flaps on servo channel 5, pan/tilt on 6/7 and mode control on 8. The flaps are manually selected with a switch when using the traditional r/c transmitter. I am trying to set up a set of joystick buttons to select “flaps up”, “approach flaps” and “landing flaps”.
There is nothing set on the joystick CH 5 entry, it is left at “NONE”.
I am using four button ids - 4,5,6 and 7. Each one has a Do_Set_Servo command that sets channel 5’s PWM to an appropriate value for the three flap positions. (Two approach settings are duplicated.)
When a button is pressed, the flap servos make a momentary movement and then go back to PWM 1000, “flaps up”.
It seems to me that the CH 5 “NONE” may still be sending commands to position that servo despite the “NONE” selection. Can you check on this ? Thanks.
