Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

Ok,

This may be a silly question but how does one download the 2.9 latest beta of MegapirateNG?

I can find the location of all the files in the SVN folder but no way of getting the code onto my PC!

Thanks.

Download tortoise svn and install it, once installed make a folder called svn in my documents or where ever you like, right click on that and select create svn,
after its created the svn files go into the folder and create another new folder   megapirateng-read-only put a space in front of the m of megapirate so the name starts with a space,
then right click on that folder and select  SVNCheckout and copy paste this into the top http://megapirateng.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/
It should then fill the folder with the current beta files  ~~

I knew there was a reptile involved somewhere!

This won';t work for me I keep getting the 2.8 r3 version not the 2.9 beta,

Toledodave

Badger..they never released 2.9 officially. Its only obtainable through an SVN downloader or somebody that has it can email it to you that has SVN setup.   Tortoise was mentioned by Gaza and is also what I used.  I have and am currently flying with 2.9.1 addons.

BadgerG

Okay I was able to download it but not sure if it is the version without sonar code because adding the Bluetooth module causes the two speed controller to initialize slowly and the other two to just beep.  :(

Toledodave

Badger,  im not sure about anything bluetooth. I use 3dr telemetry. But I can tell ya that sonar has been removed since 2.7r3.  You can still see scripting but developing has stopped. They left the scripting for open souce people to tinker. As far as I know Arducopter still supports it. They have found they can be just as accurate with accellerometer feeling movement and Borometer. Knowing Baro doesnt support low flying but neither does the hobby. Safety factors im sure.

BadgerG

Thanks for the reply. Well then I have some work ahead of me to figure out why this thing is so bogged down with the BT connected. :hmm:

Crius AIOP v1.1.

Thought I would add alittle more because I have had a major set back. While trying to get MP 3.01 R4 to calibrate my speed controller the two that just beep start to smoke and burn. One of the remaining speed controller is non responsive. So I am waiting for new speed controllers. I have rechecked all my wiring with the remaining speed controller and all the wiring from the battery to the motors works fine. So I am at a loss to what is going on. :shrug:

Oh BTW I was able to get 2.91 uploaded and flying good until I added the BT module.

Toledodave

Badger....are you trying to calibrate your ESCs through your Flight Controller? ( while ebecs are connected to FC?

Also:which port are you plugging into for Bluetooth? 
And with 3.0.1 is that megapirates and his Flash Tool?  I dont remember his tool supporting BT settings.

I have done the calibration both through the FC and plugging into the throttle port of the receiver. I connected the BT to s0 i think. Yes it was megapirates w/flashtool.

Can you post a close up picture of the connection between the AIOP and the BT module - please include both ends of the connection either in one picture or two :)

I';ve had MPNG 2.8 working fine with AIOP and BT ... that said I switched to MW as it gave me much superior flight characteristics and I didn';t need mission planning type abilities.

Toledodave

Badger...from reading others troubles I wouldnt try going through the FC. You will want to calibrate them one at a time throught the RX throttle for sure in order to set correct min/max throttle on the Esc';s.  Im not home to verify atm...but I dont think the 3.0.1 is easily configurable. 2.9.1 may be last chance to edit sketch for your BT.   3.0.1 is all new generation sketch.

Toledodave

Maybe this will help :/

Actually the BT module works fine. It';s my speed controller that were having troubles. They wouldn';t initialize properly with the BT module connected. And since then I fried three of them trying to get Megapirate 3.01 R4 running. I ordered some Afro 20 amp speed controllers and are waiting for them to arrive. I have dropped back to MP 2.8. Tried MP 2.9.1 r300 but GPS doesn';t work at all. My current problem is trying to get the CLI to work without plastering my screen with garbage characters.

Toledodave

Hmm...not sure why you would have gps issues on 2.9. I just loaded 2.9 on a whitespy pro 2 board with mtk gps and it works fine for me :/    I dont understand what correlation your BT and Escs have in common. Doesnt make sense to me is all.

Makes no sense to me either. Well I have 4 new speed controller coming in tomorrow, so I will let you know what happens. Hopefully  these Afro 20 amp speed controllers work out okay and don';t have the problem the Turnigy TY-P1 25Amp HEXFET ones did at initialization time on my quad. If they do then I am back to unplugging the BT module until the speed controllers initialize and then plugging it in.  :angry:
