Firmware General / Re: Compiling Librepilot in Windows 10 - problems and solutions

Prototyping is a software development team's way of evaluating the viability of a new software design by implementing an interactive prototype The prototype is developed using an agile approach and is deployed as a part of the software development team's release process. Since prototyping involves a lot of designing, it requires a lot of time to implement and fine tune the prototype before it is ready for users. This ultimately reduces the cost incurred by the software development team.

The following is my experience.  I'm not an expert.

I know that 16.09 needs significant updates to compile on a recent version of Linux.  I started to see what it would take, but put it aside.  I still have an old box with Mint 17.2 that it builds fine on.  To get these old builds running on a new box, you need to copy a few system libs over and use LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

I understand that 'Next' is a lot closer to building on recent Linux and I would recommend building the most recent next which I think is r796.  I have not really tried this recently.  It may work with little or no changes.

Hello I try to compil the librepilot on my ubuntu 20.04 and I have some errors I think due to a newer version of QT.
Is there somebody with ubuntu20.04 that arrive to compil librepilot ?

I'm sure you won't regret! :)
If I understand what you are asking, this is setting up your transmitter and should be covered in the transmitter instruction manual.  :)

All brands of transmitters are different.  Sorry, I don't have one of those.  I would first look in the paper instructions that came with it; second I would download the instruction manual; third I would look for a youtube video ... all of that brand and model of transmitter.

Good sport! Nice scenery
Not far from Sofia also.
I probably use the cable car if I go there  :)
Thanks so much for the replay!
Could you please point me to any instructional info/video links  on how channels are configured?
I've been looking through a lot of videos on youtube but I'm yet to see a video where this is actually being done.
Most of the videos are about unboxing or going through the different features.

I did hike, 7.8km walking distance and 810m of positive elevation change between the take-off location and where I've left the car (these numbers are from the GPS tracklog).

Actually, the Seven Rila Lakes are easily accessible and tens of thousands of people visit them every summer. There is a convenient chair lift there that goes up to 2100m (right to the Rilski Ezera hut) and most of tourists/visitors use it. The lift saves a 500m of elevation change and about 5km of walking.

I just persisted to use my feet :). I hadn't been there for years and wished to feel the forest and the mountain.
"Only four channels recognized" is usually a matter of you needing to configure the transmitter to actually send "this" switch on "that" channel.  Read transmitter instructions to find how to do that.

For arming, I use low throttle and yaw right and it works.  Have you run the transmitter wizard?  Part of it sets up control throws.  Another part maps which channel (e.g. 3) does which function (e.g. yaw).  You should not use trim or dual rates after setup as these can reduce the (for me) left-right yaw amount, and it never sees full right yaw.  With flight battery plugged in and transmitter on, you can go to the Input - RC Input section and when you wiggle each stick you can see if the function slider moves and if it moves the full amount.

Did you have to hike far?  How much elevation change during hike?
