  1. Re: Open CM9.04 - Anyone had luck programming using the Arduno IDE?

    Today's mission accomplished: Hexy running "Dual Boot", Phoenix code running on the OpenCM4.09 and Kevin's ROS stack on the Odroid N2. I can now quickly switch between the two depending on the...

    Hi Kurt,

    Just can't seem to get the Arduino IDE working on my Odroid N2. Are there any step by step instructions you've seem to get uploads working on on arm64 and the OpenCM 9.04?

    Thanks Kurt,

    Great practical advice as always.

    I'm encouraged by KevinO's comments to have a go add adding the extra gaits to his base ROS code. If that comes unstuck I'll have a go with an...
