IR Sensors connection Cable
Pay attention when connecting the IR-sensors: It's not allowed to exchange the ends of the cable. The pinout at the sensor board and the Tiny is different!
after that: Airframe_Configuration#Infrared
uBlox GPS 5H
It is necessary to modify the airframe config-file ("-DGPS_USE_LATLONG") Airframe_Configuration#GPS
In the newer Airframe Config File this has to be:
in the firmware section otherwise you might get the error:
flixr 23:02, 28 December 2010 (CET) You do not have to add the define GPS_USE_LATLONG, just use the proper gps subsytem: <subsystem name="gps" type="ublox_lea5h"/>
I just found out, that the Ground Control Station can "speak" some messages. This is very useful for the battery low warnings: Speech
To activate the PPM Messages in the new airframe config insert:
<define name="TELEMETRY_MODE_FBW" value="1"/>
to the firmware section.
Using Graupner MX-12 for paparazzi
The MX-12 has 6 channels but no 3 state switch. To use it together with paparazzi I used a trick. I used the integrated mixer to mix 2 switches together into 1 channel. One swiches Auto2 on and off. The other switches between Manual and Auto1. The mixer setup is as following:
MX 1: GEA -> GEA OFFSET 0 0% -100% SW AILE D/R
I hope that this is all that has to be done.
Using Paparazzi in VirtualBox under Windows:
- VirtualBox 4.1.12 for Windows hosts
- VirtualBox 4.1.12 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack
- Debian Squeeze
- Turn on USB 2.0 in VirtualBox configuration
- Set a Filter for a USB Device (otherwise VirtualBox crashes)
