I am fairly new to ardupilot and have just got a F450 quad with pixhawk 2.4.8 running and tuned which seemed to go pretty well. Now I have added a companion computer (RPI 2b+ with Maverick) and have a few logging issues to resolve. At least some of them I suspect are from me disconnecting the battery post flight and thus not properly shutting down the RPi.
I was just wondering how other people manage shutting down the companion computer cleanly post flight? Do you:
- issue a shutdown command from a terminal or somehow from the GCS?
- have a shutdown button on the drone (I guess using the I/O on the companion computer and some scripting)?
- similar arrangement using a channel on the radio?
- Or something else I have not thought of?
