Button MKGPS

http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=77822&g2_serialNumber=2

GPS Display

If you choose the MKGPS nothing will be displayed in the KopterTool:
Another display appears after a click on the button MKGPS . The received satellites will be displayed here.
If, and which Sat-Fix was achieved, a Data count counter as well as the software and hardware version is shown in the display.
If you use a satellite for your navigation the green LED flashes over the bar graph.

INFO:
With a click on the button MKGPS you transfer now the data from the GPS directly to the display in the KopterTool.
On the Kopter the "error GPS" warning is now signaled. After you close the display in your KopterTool,
the copter gets the data back and the warning disappears.

/!\ You shouldn't switch the display on during a flight! It can lead to disturbances.

{i} The receiving signal of the GPS can be improved significantly by a GPS shield. Infos you can get here: GpsShield

Button MK3Mag

If you choose the MK3Mag the following values are displayed:

Display

The display shows you the version number of the MK3Mag and eventually failures:
http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=77378&g2_serialNumber=1

If you push the red arrows below the display you will get more information about the MK3Mag:

{i} Important: If you use the MK3Mag the very first time you need to calibrate it correctly! Otherwise the NaviCtrl pops up with "Err:6 bad compass value"

You can do the calibration over the transmitter or through the KopterTool.

Calibration over the KopterTool

Over the display [2] you can calibrate the MK3Mag. After pushing the red arrow below (start) you will see as follows:

Step 1:

http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=77384&g2_serialNumber=1

Align the Kopter towards north (or south).
Click arrow below [step].

http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=77386&g2_serialNumber=1

You will hear a roaring sound. Rotate the Kopter forwards on its own axis until the roaring sound is off. Turn the Kopter 90° and rotate it forward again on its own axis until the sound is off.
Click arrow below [step].

http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=77388&g2_serialNumber=1

Align the Kopter again towards north (or south).
Click arrow below [step].

http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=77390&g2_serialNumber=1

You will hear a roaring sound. Rotate the Kopter again forwards on its own axis until the roaring sound is off. Turn the Kopter 90° and rotate it forward again on its own axis until the sound is off.
Click arrow below [step].

http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=77392&g2_serialNumber=1

Done!



Calibration over the transmitter

You can do also the calibration over the transmitter.

{i} The Kopter should be also aligned towards north or south!

Proceed as follows:

  1. Nick down, throttle fully up, Yaw to the left. In that way you would choose Setting 7 (The Kopter beeps 1x and the LED on the compass is going off).

  2. Now you take your MikroKopter and align it towards north or south. Now you push Nick down at your transmitter. (The Kopter beeps 2x, the LED is on again)

  3. You will hear a roaring sound. Turn the Kopter forwards over its own axis until the sound is off. Turn the Kopter 90° around and turn it again forward over its own axis (direction north or south) until the sound is off.
    To finish the procedure push Nick down at your transmitter. (The Kopter beeps 3x and the LED on the compass is off.)

  4. The Kopter is still aligned towards north or south. Push again Nick down at your transmitter. (The Kopter beeps 3x.)

  5. You will hear again a roaring sound. Turn the Kopter forwards over its own axis until the sound is off. Turn the Kopter 90° around and turn it forwards over its own axis
    (direction north or south) until the asound is off. To finish the calibration push Nick down for the last time at your transmitter. (The Kopter beeps 1x).

  6. Done!


/!\ During the calibration the movements should be only on the axis you want to calibrate.

{i} If everything is well done the LED on the compass goes off for 2 seconds - if not: Repeat it all.

{i} It can be also that the calibration has to be done again. Even if you change the flight area i.e. going from the coast into the mountains you should calibrate the compass (MK3Mag) new.
This is related to the geomagnetical field of the earth. You can determine a correct calibration that the Kopter is in the function "PositionHold" doing no circles.
