This menu provides the options to configure a PPM radio controller to control the platform fitted with the Autopilot.

Stick PPM Sensor Configuration Menu

The values to set are related to the width of the PPM pulses, the polarity of the signal and the number of channels. According to the stick used, these parameters have to be modified, so check them in the manufacturer documents and introduce them in this tab of Veronte Pipe.

Once the stick has been configured, the commands that arrive at the ground autopilot have to be sent to the air one. That is done in the “Output” section of the Stick PPM menu.

Stick PPM Output Configuration Menu

Once enabled, the user indicates at which channel of the air autopilot will be sent the first channel received in the ground segment.  The channels arrive at the platform ordered and without spaces between them, i.e if at the Ground autopilot are enable channels 1,2,3,4 and 6, in the air autopilot they will arrive channels 1,2,3,4 and 5, so channel 6 of the stick will be channel 5 in the air autopilot configuration.

The option remote permits the delivery of the commands to the platform by indicating the address on “UAV” (when the address is 0 the commands are sent to all the air autopilots linked to the ground one). The values of “Min Period”, “Max Period” and “Delta” have to be set as detailed in the previous figure.

Caution!! To enable the configuration, it is necessary to indicate the connection port of the stick. In “Connections/Digital In” select Stick PPM.
