Edge - Arducopter 3.5.x, 3.6.x, 3.7dev compilation

(Marc Lebret) #1


I have an Emlid Edge card with official Emlid 3.5.5 Arducopter.

This firmware is working well but quite old…

If Edge is not an option with Waf and 3.5 arducopter branch, Waf accept to compile copter version from 3.6 or Master branch. However 3.6.7 or 3.7dev version of arducopter do not run on Edge. I have a red blinking led (error) when trying it.

Is it an Edge hardware limitation somewhere or a software problem?

Thanks for your help,

Hi @mlebret,

I’ll try to reproduce it and get back to you with updates.

Hi Marc,

We reproduced the described behavior, thanks for reporting. We will dig into the issue and report back once there are news.

Thanks for your work,

There is some clues with how data (some parameters) is stored (permanently?) in the Edge card or the Rpi compute module.

There is no easy way to clear memory when installing a fresh 1.5 image (some old parameters are still present somewhere) and if I try to run emlidtool with a recent arducopter 3.6.x, there is a wrapper error msg.
