set arming require to 0, this means the ArduCopter will boot into a armed state

Ohh ok so when it starts it will be all ready armed ?

peter i know this must be a verry simple thing to do but an have very limited time to learn how to do it i have it connected to my computers can i provide you with my pc team viewer for you to do it or i am asking too much ?


Connect in mission planner -> configuration -> full parameter list -> find ARMING_REQUIRE -> set to 0 -> write parameter

You donโ€™t need to arm the vehicle to get all of the telemetry data you are
after. You will probably want to set LOG_DISARMED=1 so you get onboard
dataflash logs for later analysis / creation of pretty pictures.

I got a new setup :slight_smile: but in cant get telemetry from pixhawk ?
