Had some more time to play with this today. Verified the apex is connecting to my camera via wifi in system status. Downgraded out of the beta android app to v1.13.1 from google play store. Racecapture/Apex firmware 2.13.6 Gopro Hero 4 is setup correctly, I previously used the script to control the ...

Beta v1.14 and automatic gopro control

I have v1.14 RC app installed on android, I opted in for Beta testing, if that makes any difference. I have wifi turned on, and the access name and password set for my camera. Using a Hero4. When I go to the automatic control screen, I only see options for logging, which I have gotten to work. There...

Thank you, I had that correct in my actual script, so that wasn't my exact problem.
Similar though, I used "GetChannel()" instead of "getChannel()"
Duh...

Thanks for the response.

Create Virtual Channel

Trying to create a virtual channel to allow use of the shiftX2 button to trigger logging and goPro. The addChannel function is returning a nil value. ButtonId = addChannel("Sx2Button",10,0,0,100,'') if ButtonID == nil then println('it is nil') end I simplified to the example in the a...

This does work, nothing to enable i dont think, you have to be on a dashboard screen for the logging to happen. Relies on the phone/tablet to do the logging. I tried it and works ok on shorter logs. The app locked up on me when I let it run on a longer trip, not sure if it was due to logging or not....

I got something working for WoL and the GP Session. Here is the rough outline. After joining the camera's network you tell the camera to wake up using I have the gopro start/stop scripting working.

It looks like the carriage returns might be stripped out outside of the app.

Can you try sending the script in an email, for example, and then try pasting that?

You are absolutely right, looks like Firefox for android is the culprit. Works ok when i copy from chrome.

Retrieving Log Files from SD Card

Is there an alternate way to copy log files from the SD Card on the RCApex.
I know I can pull the SD Card and copy them off.
Is there a way to copy them via Bluetooth or WIFI?

Thanks

Scripting On Android

Looks like on android, when I copy and paste a sample script from the wiki to the app, all of the carriage returns are being stripped out. This causes an issue when there is a "--" comment, anything that ends up on the same line is considered a comment. See attached screenshot. Also, can you allow t...

Also had an issue doing the track walk at the autocross course. Got about 1/3 of the way through the course and the track mapping stopped and the restart button appeared. Did this on two course walks at about the same spot. Not sure if this is related or a separate issue. You can scratch the course...

Can you see if this reproduces with the 1.12.0 beta?
Yes, same behavior on both the S8+ and the Nexus 7.

Just reproduced this on a nexus7 running marshmallow. Not connected to my RCApex.
Exit button seems unresponsive, after several presses the screen goes black. Sometimes an application stopped message comes up, sometimes it hangs at the black screen and you have close it manually.

I'm seeing this same issue on 1.11 on a Samsung S8+ The menu with the exit button comes up, but the exit button is unresponsive. Pressing the home button gets the app to the background, when I bring it back to the foreground the screen is black and I get a application stopped error. Also had an issu...

Unfortunately my car is out for paint, may be a couple of months. I have the string pots and from what I can see in playing with them, I don't see any reason why they won't work great for steering angle and throttle position.

I'll keep you guys posted,

Budget String Pot

Came across these, probably not as good as some of the commercial models. I bought a couple, I'll update when I get them installed.
For $40 might make sense for some folks.
