Re: New RCtimer GPS Ublox Neo 6M fails to perform on Mega bo

Yep U-Center seems to fully understand only NMEA and since default is UBX+NMEA+somethingeles U-Center shows satelites + additional info and when you disable NMEA U-Center shows only position but no satellites. Andrej Thank you Andrej! This morning I tested GPS with u-center and I verified that in t...

Re: New RCtimer GPS Ublox Neo 6M fails to perform on Mega bo

it sure tries different speeds because my AIO+gps (rctimer) works with Bandi's code even withouth GPS battery! (removed it to test the eeprom mod, but it didn't remember settings with it, so I just desoldered eeprom and then Bandi's code came right in time to test it) Thank you Tom...tried again th...

Re: New RCtimer GPS Ublox Neo 6M fails to perform on Mega bo

Thank you EOSBandi ! now we need to figure out how on each startup configure Ublox module so it can work in binary protocol and at 5 Hz. So we don't need to make hardware modification. The code above does the configuration of UBLOX for 5Hz, Binary and EGNOS great job EOSBandi! ...but I do not under...

Re: New RCtimer GPS Ublox Neo 6M fails to perform on Mega bo

I was very impressed about accuracy of ublox neo 6 gps m But i am dissapointed about the fact that GPS looses its configuration almost immediately after shutting down. Also the ublox configurator is hard to understand in how produce the desired configuration file. (I personally prefer nmea standard...

Re: GPS integration

During first FPV tests RTH resulted too slow: about 3m/s - More than 3 minutes to return home from 600m...batteries could go off before coming home. Following EOSbandi wiki I changed in GPS.ino (thank you Thomas (mr.rc-cam) for the info!) NAV_SPEED_MAX from 300 to 500 and now quad is returning home ...

Re: GPS integration

After reading the great EOSbandi wiki I was looking for #define NAV_SPEED_MAX but I'm not able to find it in the source 2.1 I'm using. In the V2.1 that I have the NAV_SPEED_MAX is found in GPS.ino - Thomas Thank you Thomas! Next days I am going to try to raise the value NAV_SPEED_MAX from 300 to 40...

Re: GPS integration

After some RTH tests using FPV I feel that, as in FPV the quad is pretty far, would be really nice to speed up RTH speed in order to come back before batteries go off. After reading the great EOSbandi wiki I was looking for #define NAV_SPEED_MAX but I'm not able to find it in the source 2.1 I'm usin...

Re: GPS integration

I saw its quite good position hold with this cheap GPS. I think it would be more precise with this GPS m But i hate the price, its make me think buy another MKGPS 2.1 with GPS shield. Those using ublox LEA 6. I have MKGPS but no have time to try with MWC yet. I like your copter fly with pos hold an...

GPS integration

Hi John! I'm using this GPS

http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo=go ... oductname=

but I'm not very happy with it as it looses very often configuration data and to make it working you have always to switch it on/off a couple of time.

Re: GPS integration

Today RTH tests. I've done a dozen RTH tests driving the quad more and more distant, switching to Pos Hold and then to RTH. From RTH point I've NEVER used the TX sticks and the quad always came back to home position, rotating head to initial position...really impressive! This is a video of the first...

TermicOne : what is your quad size/KV/prop size and what pid values did you set ? I'm using the rctimer i2c/gps board and a mtk gps from a fried APM2, working perfectly, but my Position Hold is wayyyy too touchy, yoyo effect and crazy move, even with 9 sat, and i can't find how to tune correctly my...

Re: GPS integration

Today installation, setup and GPS maiden flight on a CRIUS AIO Pro V1 (ublox GPS from RCTimer). Tested GPS Pos Hold function....I'm really impressed. I haven't done yet any PID tuning and I'm still flying with all default PID values. Even with these defaults the GPS HOLD function works pretty well (...
