Me again…okay. So, first is when the quoting takes place. Then, the questions. Are we ready? Awesome!
In that doc, there are a couple of sentences I would like to review.
- Where would I
installRCPassThru and where is SERVOx_FUNCTION located?
Here is the text in case no one wants to view the link from above:
Outputs are provided to activate servos, motors, relays, etc. to control the vehicle. Any autopilot output can be assigned the desired vehicle control output function via the SERVOx_FUNCTION parameters. Note that outputs do NOT necessarily correspond to any RC input, unless their function is set to RCPassThru.
I have four motors, a Receiver, and a Transmitter. Of course, I have ESCs too. From my one bunch of text here, Radio Calibration on the AutoPilot , I am still stuck on Radio Calibration as RCPassThru has not been set correctly (supposedly).
P.S. I will try on the Mandatory Hardware section(s) after getting this darn radio calibration working. And also another thing here, if using RCPassThru, would I need to handle other functions like SERVOx_FUNCTION where
x is my mapped RCPassThru to ESC or Motor?
I am still at a loss here. I cannot find, in the directory of ArduCopter or the BBBlue docs, where exactly I would create the connection to/from RX/TX.
I think the Linux portions of the BBBlue are awesome on the ArduCopter installations. And now, for who knows how long, there are actual binaries of ArduCopter available. This is an awesome feature.
I also noticed in the BBBlue docs, one would get the newest of the bone-kernels for porting ArduPilot to it. Luckily, beagleboard.org still produces the bone-kernels. I got the 12-01 version from this year and the binary for ArduCopter from 12-04 of this year. Phew. Okay. Enough typing!
If you understand what I am saying, please do reply. As someone, not naming any names, pointed out, I am five years into this idea and have zilch to show for it…
