XUAV Mini Talon Part 7 – APM Setup with Mission Planner: Setup APM for 6 Flight Modes, setup APM throttle failsafe, Setup APM Telemetry Radios and test.
1. We setup 6 flight modes in mission planner using the Taranis X9D RC radio and two switches. There is a flight mode switch and a sub-mode switch setup on the Taranis radio.
For more in-depth information on this see my video on flight modes:
2. We setup APM throttle failsafe for RTL (return to launch) for the EZUHF long range system with EZUHF JR module in the Tarania X9D radio. I talk about the normal throttle failsafe first that many receivers use then get into the two ways the EZUHF can be setup, hardware failsafe and Ardupilot 2.6/2.8 throttle failsafe setup with throttle trim offset on Taranis radio.
3. Last we cover telemetry radio setup and use. The telemetry radio set actually replaces the USB cable between the laptop computer and the APM flight controller with a wireless link. This allows you to configure the APM while in flight as well as create missions with way points and execute commands.
For more in depth information on setup and troubleshooting of the telemetry radio set see my video here:
