what is the best way to read a rc receiver output?

Hi Jacob,

is the GitHub Zip complete? Looks like the pic32lib has no files, and GPS only has GPS.h. TokenParser has no files, but needs at least TokenParser.h.

19 files?

Maybe I need something else?

Maybe point me to the notes needed to compile?

I am not current on the PIC lib, come to think of it.

Thanks!

the pic32lib and TokenParsers are submodules so you need to do a submodule update. The gps code is not complete and there is only a header.

If you look at github.com/pontech you should see the submodules. I was able to pull and update the whole project.

NOTE: There are a couple of other issues as well that have been fixed in MPIDE to get this to compile, I'll will have to put a readme together.

What voltage are the signals from the RC receiver you are using? I ask because a lot of the PIC32 I/O lines don't seem to be 5 volt tolerant, especially on on the smaller packages like the PIC32MX250F128B etc. I know having built a few multi-copters myself, that RC receivers can have a lot of channels. I have mostly used ATmega chips which run on 5volts, I haven't tried a PIC32 as a flight controller yet, though no doubt will one day.

The UAV100 has buffered inputs.

you can download simple bare program on chipkit32 using mpide IDE 023

you will start receiving data.

ex:

void setup()
{
}
void loop()
{
}

and open serial monitor to view the data
With Warm Regards
