ArduCopter in action: Testing the QuadCopter (HIL mode) on X-Plane v9

233964756_1280x720.jpg



Here a video a the ArduMega board (2560 or 1280) with the firmware ArduCopter v2.1.1b (JLN update for X-Plane) connected on the X-Plane simulator throught the APM Planner in HIL mode. The QuadCopter QRO has been modelized for X-Plane v9.0 (or greater) so as get a closest replication of a true QuadCopter UAV.

This is a very good method for testing all the features of the ArduCopter firmware. For conducting a such test, only an ArduMega board (APM1280, APM2560, APM2) is used, no IMU shield or sensor are required here…

Setup:
– Receiver: Turnigy 9X8C v2 connected to the APM board
– Transmitter: Turnigy 9x
– APM planner v1.1.1x
– ArduMega board (APM v1 or APM v2)
– firmware ArduCopter v2.x.x + the JLN mod for X-Plane
– Software: X-Plane v9 or greater
– QRO_X: the quadcopter model (by JLN) for X-Plane
