I am using apm 2.6 plane ardupilot
and I test it with manual mode many times it works good ,
but when i set the mode to auto I faced many problems such as :
when I change the mode ti Auto the throttle reduced and not response to the waypoints !
And I can’t test auto mode in the ground .
I need good information in mode setting and related setting .
dose there any way to test auto mode in ground ?
In what situation auto mode causes throttle low or fail?
Dose it important to use Airspeed for auto mode ?
what I need to do to verify my parameter list works success ?
A maybe helpful information about Auto parameter list
going to be crazy … plz don’t left without comment .
What version of ArduPlane firmware are you using?
hi @TCIII ,
and thankx for interest
I am using ArduPlane firmware 2.6 , which i think compatible with my Ardupilot
Where did you get ArduPlane firmware version 2.6 from?
Why are you using version 2.6 which is around 5 years old and is no longer supported by the ArduPlane Wiki?
I use the 2.6 firmware coz I think it’s compatible with my ardupilot controller.
should I use another newer firmware ? As I read firmware latest version is for Pixhawak …
I would be grateful if you provided me with the necessary information
The current version (3.4) will run on APM2.5/2.6/2.8 boards
Ok I will use the latest firmware , But is that will solve my problem with Auto mode ?
It may, it may not.
Ideally you will need to upgrade, re-calibrate everything, turn logging up quite high and then attempt another auto flight.
Without a log it’s a bit difficult to diagnose anything.
I download the latest firmware and upgrade it , re-calibrate everything . will fly tomorrow.
my question is , Dose there any way to test the Auto mode in the ground and home ? to ensure that my steps in the right way ?
Thank you both for interaction and guidance.
you cant test auto mode at home but you can check with shortest flight like just make small waypoint.
within 5 miter n altitude 3 meter. it will help to get better understanding.
OK . but when I upgrade the firmware to 3.4 there is no GPS lock .
good way to test , Can you tell me the reason that Auto mode not working in ground , what it need to work ?
