Jupiter JM-1 Firmware V.1.1.8

(Please right click and save file as)

Release note:

  • Enabling MAVLink interface compatibility
  • Enabling waypoint navigation function and 50 waypoints (Free)
  • Safety switch setup for navigation function – user can now use GCS such as Mission Planner safely
  • Improved position GPS hold
  • Improved altitude hold
  • Ability to fly survey grid in navigation mode

Please note the following important changes to the new Jupiter JM-1 firmware V1.1.8

When you take off the RTL location is now will be the “Launch” point – not the “GPS Initialization” point as per previous version. What this means is that the RTL point is no longer the place where you turn on the UAV and acquire GPS Initialization, it’s now the place where the UAV takes off.

However, if you launch the UAV before the “GPS Initialization” process is complete then the UAV will return to the point when the “GPS Initialization” is completed.

It is very important that you be aware of this fact because if you take off before the autopilot’s GPS Initialization process is completed and start flying around – in the event of RTL – the UAV will return to the point of where it acquired GPS Initialization which maybe far away from your take-off point.

Navigation Mode:

You can now configure a switch position to activate Navigation Mode if you plan to control the UAV using ground control station software interface such as Mission Planner.

To use Navigation feature, assign a switch position on you radio by selecting “Navigation” in the ACM function drop down menu.

To activate Navigation your UAV must have GPS Initialization and a flight plan must be uploaded via RF modem to the UAV.

Arm the motors then activate Navigation function by the corresponding switch position, the UAV will begin to perform the uploaded flight plan which also now supports auto take-off if the first waypoint is configured with “auto take-off” selected.
