Aero will not connect to qgroundcontrol

Hi,

I am using intel Aero with Ubuntu. I have followed the guide to install and configure Ubuntu and to connect it with Qgroundcontrol.

the drone used to connect with qgroundcontrol on a pc, now qgroundcontrol cannot connect with the vehicle anymore.

computer local ip: 192.168.43.76

aero local ip: 192.168.43.227

if i run mavlink-routerd here is the result:

Open UDP [4] 192.168.43.76:14550

Open UDP [5] 192.168.7.255:14550

Error binding socket Address already in use)

Could not open 0.0.0.0:80550

Thank you

Hi francesco.dalterio,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero Drone.

 

You have to connect your PC to the drone's WiFi access point:

Also, please make sure you disabled the firewall or any similar programs on your computer.

 

 

Regards,

 

Alexandra

Hi Francesco,

 

 

Can you tell me what operating system you have on your PC?

Ubuntu 18.04

We have discovered is an internal problem of the aero board, because it persists even after having re-flashed it with yocto from scratch

sometimes it is not able to recognize flight controller version, when you write aero-get-version it prompts aerofc version unknown and the udate command sequence:

cd /etc/aerofc/px4/

aerofc-update.sh nuttx-aerofc-v1-default.px4

fails as described before

Hi francesco.dalterio,

 

 

Is this a brand new drone? Have you been able to flash the flight controller before?
