The BBBlue has 5v power from the servo headers for powering the receiver.
Oh, okay. Yea...the X8R, my receiver, has sBus, RSSI, and power.
Oh. Okay but I read over the ArduCopter info. about calibrating the ESC. I did receive a long beep once but I could not repeat the process w/ that long beep from my ESC.
Seth
@silver2row
Oh! You mean put the signal wire from my ESC in the receiver signal pin connector?
i.e. not where the signal wire normally gets connected! Aw!
Seth
@silver2row
@juvinski : Thank you, sir.
Vinicius Juvinski
@juvinski
@silver2row I use the x8r with 3.3 volts and works without need voltage dividir
Seth
@silver2row
Okay. No issue. Thank you for the guidance thus far. I appreciate it. I have not been an avid drone person before this BBBlue encounter. So, I am learning when I can.
Seth
@silver2row
I watched the video. Now...time to try this 4-in-1 esc calibration. I will reply to let you know it has been done and it works.
Seth
@silver2row
@juvinski : Hello once more! I got my errors w/ the motors calibrated. Now, my arducopter.service file has stopped working. I am trying to fix it now.
Seth
@silver2row
Okay. I am back in it. The arducopter.service file was giving errors for some reason. Anyway...fixed for now.
Vinicius Juvinski
@juvinski
Hi brother what errors do you have ? I don’t think is the esc calibration the root cause of that
Seth
@silver2row
Hey man...I got it working again. Yep. I do not know what broke it but it broke and I just needed to disbale the service and enable it again. That did it.
Seth
@silver2row
@juvinski : Hey man...somehow my binding process from TX to RX came undone. I have to rebind the TX and RX. Odd days.
Seth
@silver2row
@juvinski : Hey again. Hello! I found out the issue. I have been using a SD Card instead of the eMMC on the BBBlue. Once the SD Card gets ejected, I have to restart my .service file and rebind my TX/RX.
Yikes.
I was wondering why I kept having to restart things. eMMC time.
Seth
@silver2row
Hey. You have to rebind every time you calibrate the ESCs. Is this what other people are coming across?
Seth
@silver2row
There is a three-step process that leads to arducopter not working on the BBBlue w/ the X-Lite, X8R, and the .service file.
I think the board has to have the .service file start up script work but every time the calibration works for the ESCs, you need to rebind the RX to the TX which in turn stops the .service file. Has anyone else had this trouble?
Seth
@silver2row
It works once but afterwards, the need for setting up the .service file, the binding process, and the ESC calibration all need to be done over and over again. Has anyone else figured out how to make it so it works during each boot whenever you want to just run the machine?
Seth
@silver2row
I see imfatant/test was just updated. I will try this idea out and get thet new image.
Sorry for trying to make sense out of what happened but I can only make sense in the way I know how. Just for the record, I was not upset.

Hi @patrickpoirier51, I'm a new guy to Ardupilot project. I've successfully built and run a PX4 firmware of BBBlue with a micrortps_bridge module. Now, I'd like to build a DIY quadcopter of pocketpilot with ArduCopter for learning Ardupilot project.
MartinAtCoventry
@MartinAtCoventry
But I faced some problems. I have cross-compiled a arducopter binary program, and scp onto my pocketbeagle board. The barometer module, however, cannot be initialized.

Describe the bug
I linked the pins of the baro module to pocketbeagle according to https://github.com/PocketPilot/PocketPilot/blob/master/PocketBeagle%20PocketPilot%20Final%20Schematic.pdf with pocketpilot layout v2. But the baro module cannot be initialized.

@MartinAtCoventry
BTW, @patrickpoirier51 , I don't know whether the SPI1 pins of pocketbeagle can be damaged, because the pin scl and sda of the GY-63 module are all 5V output when it s Vcc lined a 5V power.
patrickpoirier51
@patrickpoirier51
Hello @MartinAtCoventry
The new code is with MBP280
You have to revert to MS5611 on the above and make sure you assigned the correct device and selectors pins here as well
MartinAtCoventry
@MartinAtCoventry
@patrickpoirier51 , thank your reply:) Fortunately, I have bought a new module online, GY-BMP280. I will link it to the board and test it.
MartinAtCoventry
@MartinAtCoventry
@patrickpoirier51 , I want to know whether the pin of the pocketbeagle can be damaged by 5 voltage. Because my module has a 5V I2C port pins(H_SCL, H_SDA), and I connected them to the SPI port of my pocketbeagle.
patrickpoirier51
@patrickpoirier51
It should not be a problem as these signals are generally pull up type to 3.5 volts
MartinAtCoventry
@MartinAtCoventry
Hi @patrickpoirier51 , could you tell me, in pocket pilot, what meaning the LED1, LED2, LED3 separately point out?

BeagleBone Blue wifi connection question: Hi Everyone. I am running ArduPilot on BeagleBone Blue for a while now. Running Windows 10 on PC and connecting via WiFi to ArduPilot. Everything was working fine until recently.
Now QGC gives me the following message: “vehicle 1 did not respond to request for parameters”
When i connect using the Android version of QGC i have no problems. I only have problems when i connect on Windows 10. As i said, until recently all was working fine. I tried on various windows machines and i always have the same problem. On Android it works fine.
Any ideas what might be the problem?
patrickpoirier51
@patrickpoirier51
Have you tried with Mission Planner?
GADemetriou
@GADemetriou
Hi Patrick. yes i did. same problem. Used to work now no. Stays stack on Getting Params. Only on Android it loads correctly.
patrickpoirier51
@patrickpoirier51
And the firewall is set correctly?
Vinicius Juvinski
@juvinski
what command are you using to start ardupilot ?
