Hi guys, I am having problems with my Pixhawk 2.4.8. I have connected my Pixhawk to my APM planner 2.0 on my Mac and have done all the necessary configurations. My Pixhawk doesn’t have a gps for additional information.
When I press and hold the arm switch or push the yaw stick to the extreme right, the message I get is “Prearm: RC11 minimum is greater than trim”. Also I need help in calibrating my motors, there is no section of ESC Calibration on APM planner so how am I supposed to do it?
Why is this happening, what do I need to do?? Also I need help in calibrating my motors, there is no section of ESC Calibration on APM planner so how am I supposed to do it? What is the procedure of doing it? I am an absolute beginner in this, I have seen people having the same problem but I don’t have any clue what they are talking. Please tell me in a way that I could understand.
Thanks a lot!
you need to set RC11_MIN > RC11_TRIM, its a bug in the radio calabraion routine, if you update to latest mission planer it is fixed. or you can set RC11_MIN to 1000, RC11_TRIM to 1500 and RC11_MAX to 2000.
Where does this come in APM planner how do I navigate to this? where do I need to go to to make this setting? and what is the latest Mission planner software version?
no idea about APM planner. latest mission planner is here
look in the full parameter list
ok, in mission planner where do I need to go to, to make this change?
The Full Parameter list. If you don’t see that navigate to the Planner setup page and pick Advanced.
Is the latest version 1.3.64?
Is QGroundControl a good tool to use? do you know how to configure my Pixhawk 2.4.8? or do you know of any youtube video?
Btw, thank you for your patience with me thanks a lot for your help
the wiki has all the information on setup, we tend not to recommend video’s they go out of date quite quickly.
