CX-20 Cheerson Auto Pathfinder - Page 3822. Quote: I got this one: Note the cable provided comes with connectors meant for an APM FC and does not work with the stock CX20/Nova which use servo type connectors.

CX-20 Cheerson Auto Pathfinder - Page 3822

Just need to connect the compass pins to the stock cable that comes with the Nova and you're good to go. I also removed the stock compass from the top puck and relocated the GPS + compass combo unit up there, a little more room in the main area. Also note that certain features you see in Arducopter wiki may not apply to the CX20/Nova or even any APM boards, these are the features introduced in FW ver 3.3 onwards which are currently only supported on the Pixhawk FC. Yeah you can, firstly you need telemetry setup. After you have telemetry setup, you can connect the 3DR radio receiver(USB side) to an android Table or phone using an OTG cable.

Quadcopter-Robotics: Telemetry Radios - Using FTDI-Interface and upgrading firmware. I'm setting up some new 3DR 915mhz Telemetry Radios for new Super-Nova.

Quadcopter-Robotics: Telemetry Radios - Using FTDI-Interface and upgrading firmware

This is an older v1-set. To be able to use the one radio connected to Android Tower/DroildPlanner3 tablet on all models, all radios (including those inside quads) need to be set to the same Net-ID (channel) and other required settings. Basically, this allows you to use any two radios together. I ran into two issues: While using Mission-Planner to reprogram the master radio (and reach the one installed in quad wirelessly) I "lost control" of remote/slave radio. So, I decided to connect each/all radios to MissionPlanner separately. GitHub - funtastix/ardupilot at ArduCopter-3.1.2: Custom Quanum Nova/Cheerson CX-20 version of APM Copter.

Ardupilot.com - View topic - Telemetry Radio and Cherson CX-20 APM 3.1.5. For anyone interested, I managed to get telemetry working on my Quanum Nova with ArduCopter 3.2 just fine on the normal telemetry port (to which I soldered the D13 socket).

All I had to do was to compile the code myself and comment two lines in ArduCopter/system.pde (line 166 and 171): Code: //#if CONFIG_HAL_BOARD ! = HAL_BOARD_APM2 // we have a 2nd serial port for telemetry on all boards except // APM2.

The code is repeated continuously as long as the fault continues to exist. i.e. If the faults clear, the LED will be solid. 1 - No MAVLink data is being received (possible faulty connection to APM) 2 - No Telemetry packets are being requested (possible faulty connection to receiver) 3 - Missing MAVLink SYS_STATUS data.

Hello everybody.

CX-20 Cheerson Auto Pathfinder - Page 3728

I also posted this on the beginner series with no reply. Well, as per the title, I am quite new at this but I believe I am not a complete newb. I bought the Nova from HK, got the PNF version, managed to get it working with my Turnigy 9X. MinimOSD tutorial failed to talk to bootloader fix and more. PL-2303HX – Rev. D USB to Serial Bridge Controller. The PL-2303HX is a low cost and high performance USB-to-Serial Bridge Controller.

PL-2303HX – Rev. D USB to Serial Bridge Controller

The PL-2303HX provides a convenient solution for connecting an RS-232 full-duplex asynchronous serial device to any Universal Serial Bus (USB) capable host. The PL-2303HX highly compatible drivers could simulate the traditional COM port on most operating systems allowing the existing applications based on COM port to easily migrate and be made USB ready. The PL-2303HX is exclusively designed for mobile and embedded solutions in mind, providing a small footprint that could easily fit in to any connectors and handheld devices.

With very small power consumption in either operating or suspend mode, the PL-2303HX is perfect for bus power operation with plenty of power left for the attached devices.

Yes.I just get bleeps from the motors. 2/. Not yet measured.It will still work off the old BEC but haven't yet done a back to back comparison since the soldering job.The onboard BEC was still outputting 5.25 volts (bothing running) even with the damage. CX-20 Cheerson Auto Pathfinder - Page 2458. Mavlink OSD finally updating - interesting solution. Did you hear the shout? I had a eureka moment tonight. After nearly 3 weeks of trying to nut out why some of my OSD parameters would not update until I connected to telemetry radio, I found the solution.

CX-20 Cheerson Auto Pathfinder - Page 2552. Quote: Re gimbals being a PIA. Not in my case (and possibly Tesla1856 his blog has his usual good descriptions). We got the BG eachine lightweight gimbal and it worked out of the box. Just get the right version of the gimbal FC interface software if you want to adjust the settings and don't upgrade the firmware. For the Yi I haven't adjusted the settings as it came from BG just made sure it was balanced with power off. I powered it with 12v from under the quad using the jst red connector it came with making sure to put it in the right way around. On the stock transmitter pitch was on one of the pots. So to sum up I could have used it straight out of the box for the Yi once I understood what cables were required for power and control (4 wires / two connections) CX-20 Cheerson Auto Pathfinder - Page 2636.

TUTO: Connecting the telemetry to the Cheerson CX 20 (aka the Quanum NOVA) · jlnaudin/x-VTOLdrone Wiki. Here an explanation for connecting the real time telemetry to the CX-20 or to the Quanum Nova The telemetry port is located on the I/O board of the APM (the second board at the bottom and pluged to the main CPU board) where all the I/O plug are connected. The telemetry port is fully compatible with all the telemetry transmitter (3DR and all the compatible boards) and also with the Bluetooth boards commonly used with the APM boards. Below the pinout which shows the telemetry port I/O (back to the I/O board) sold 4 cables on the telemetry ports then protect the connections with hot glue Check the functionning.

CX-20 Cheerson Auto Pathfinder - Page 3399. I just added MinimOSD and MP to my CX20 with XiaoMi Yi /FPV setup. I got it working after setup of OSD in Mission Planner Initial Setup and getting the wires connected. It is a little small on a 4.3" FPV screen, but I could see the Satellite count, battery percent, horizon, etc. It flashed low RSSI and battery, but I'd look into that later, I wanted to take a test flight. Big mistake, I took off in stabilize mode, 11 satellites, and after about 10 seconds it suddenly shot up about 20 meters, I lowered the throttle to no affect but it eventually came down and landed. I took home and downloaded the log, it showed FAILSAFE _BATT-1 and RTL, as I had setup. I reviewed my OSD setup and it showed 0 volts, so went to MP Initial Setup, OSD, I had it setup like in Spy's blog, but the calculated voltage was just rolling through numbers.

The APM Power modules are often not very accurate until calibrated.

Calibrating the voltage is easy using a multimeter, but calibrating the current is more difficult. In order to get a good current calibration, you should be using about 15 Amps. Many meters only go up to 10 Amps and fuse out if higher. Also, it's a bit dangerous, even if you swap props so they push the copter to the floor. Here's an easy way that gives great results. Lipo's are very efficient in that if you pull out 1,234 mah's, your charger ends up putting in almost the same amount of current 1,234 mah.
