Quote from: bunnygirl80 on Wednesday,February 06, 2013, 22:48:09 Oh! Super! I';ve got my sonar working after only four days of tinkering and 300 lines of code changes! Whippee! This stuff is sooo easy! It dead accurate too with readings from 2.2 meters to about 6 cm. The reading is even appearing in the GUI altitude.My question, does the sonar readings get ignored after the quad turns to an angle of more than a certain degrees? Thxx.
Quote from: bunnygirl80 on Friday,March 01, 2013, 09:37:55 Hi Mike,In the end my problems were down to wiring and power source. I originally took the power from the S1-S3 output but this was also shared between the GPS and telemetry. So, in the end I took the power directly from the UBEC and also had to swap the Trig/Echo cables over. How did you wire everything? which pins have you used?Stef

After ensuring that your COM port is selected, press the Terminal button. When the prompt appears type "test" and "sonar". Note that the minimum distance displayed by the sonar will be about 20cm.
