Where can i get help reading logs?

thanks Pat

You’re in roughly the right place.But it can take a while to decipher them especially as the devs love introducing new parameters regularly.I used to be good with them until they went Pixhawk (and over 700 params).Now I blunder about stabbing the logs with a sharp stick hoping something emerges.


I agree with Jagger, the forums are the right place to seek help. And the logs can be difficult to decipher, probably impossible if you aren’t comfortable digging through the ArduPilot source code.

But to answer your question more directly:

  1. If you’re using ArduPlane, start here: http://ardupilot.org/plane/docs/common-logs.html If ArduCopter, much is the same, those docs are here: http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-logs.html
  2. If you get stuck, ask a question! Folks here enjoy helping others use and learn the system, so you’re not alone.
