    My X8M had a mishap a few weeks ago and I have since had to purchase a new Canon SX260. I had installed the CHDK on the SX260 and I have the TuffFlight cable connected to the Pixhawk.

    My problem is that when I power up the SX260 and then power up the X8, the camera will take a pic on power up but will not take any more pictures after that. I have also adjusted the prams to trigger the camera to 1m intervals and then walk around to see if I can get the camera to trigger. No results:(

    Not sure what I am missing, everything looks good on the CHDK prams and the X8 prams, but not sure if my memory is serving me well.

    Does anyone know where I can get a full pram list for both the Pixhawk and SX260 CHDK??

    Last resort.....I have contacted 3DR, but no response yet.

    You may have solved this by now, but you should verify the CHDK version matches the firmware version of the SX260.
