Hi, Ive been trawling through the posts on here trying to fix this thing for weeks now.
Im stuck now so thought Id ask if anyone can see where im going wrong.
Im running a cube orange setup. First I had it configured with Herelink controller and here3 gps, I then added an Emlid M+ second gps for RTK work and right from the start it kept failing. I had to flash firmware on the M+ and cube to finally get them to talk, but after a couple of weeks the NO GPS stared being a permanent thing. So I decided to go with lora radios instead and moved on.
Next problem was the gimbal and camera control being intermittent. Sometimes it all seemed to work and the LUA script wold run fine. Then it would just stop. I could either control the gimbal manually via the herelink or trigger the camera but not both. Then it became apparent that mission planner had no direct control over the gimbal, so pretty useless when setting auto missions when camera and gimbal control are needed.
So I decided to ditch the herelink for now and go the simple rout of standard tx/rx with Sik radios and a hd video downlink, all as separate hardware and get things working as it should.
Thats where I am now, Ive wiped all settings from the cube to start over but I cant get anything working at all now.
I have followed the setup for the Sik radios and they are updated and connected fine. I just dont appear to have any connection to the flight controller. No red data light at all on both telem 1 and telem 2 ports. Further to that ive tried the telemetry s-port wire setup to the tx16s with Yaapu running and nothing there either. Ive tried using GPS2 (same port the M+ was originally on until it kept failing) as well and still nothing.
The gremsy T3V3 gimbal is also designed to connect to telem2 or gps2 (comes with direct cables to match the ports) and having followed all the steps to set that up using mavlink I get nothing!
So thats where im stuck at now, Im pretty close to saying the cube is faulty as there seem to be too many different faults all stemming from the serial ports. But I wanted to make sure Ive not been doing something stupid and messed something up first.
So any help would be much appreciated.
