My GCS will replay log files and link to Google Earth to replay them, and also generate .KML files from log files, but I have lost track of which Atto versions it supports. I think V3.0 is supported, but then again...
Or of course you…"
"I'll take a wild guess and presume that means you got it running ok, but received no data. In which case I would suspect serial comms to be the issue, and suggest checking the com port and baud rate. If you scroll down the pipeline you will see…"
Yes, it's not the easiest thing in the world to get going. I'm hoping the new official GCS will be released soon and answer everyone's prayers.
Did you have a look at the (admittedly scanty) documentation?
"A1, A2 and A3 refer to the 5Hz, 1Hz and 0.1Hz strings respectively. Chris McNair's post on 15/7/10 (earlier in this thread) gives descriptions of all the fields that follow the A1, A2 or A3 Atto string identifiers.
The FF at the end is a…"
For emulation I use a plain text file of pre-recorded downlink telemetry data and replay this out of a com port, hardware loop this back into another com port, and this represents a simulation of incoming downlink telemetry data. I use a…"
"To interface to a Digi XTend you need to provide:
- power to the power input (needs to be +5V if you want to get the full 1 Watt transmit power),
- ground to the ground input,
- pull the shutdown pin up to the power supply voltage (either a direct…"
Whatever radios you choose you will need 2 of them, one for the aircraft and one for the ground station. The radio at the ground station usually connects to a PC using the RS232 protocol. If you choose Digi XTend radios, there is a version that…"
Thank you! So your current Atto telemetry is driving the GCS ok? That's very good to hear. Please do let me know about any problems with the on-the-fly waypoints. I forgot to say that I've also updated the user guide here,…"
"I've uploaded the new version with on-the-fly waypoints. It requires the latest version of RoboRealm (2.18.6) in order to run.
Waypoints can be added by typing in co-ordinates, or by cutting and pasting from Google Earth (or indeed from…"
