Changing flight controller after Ubuntu installation on Intel Aero RTF drone

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have installed Ubuntu on the Intel Aero RTF following the instructions in the wiki. I was using the PX4 flight controller but now want to switch to Ardupilot. When running:

cd /etc/aerofc/ardupilot/

aerofc-update.sh arducopter-aerofc-v1.px4

I get the following:

Is there another way to flash the flight controller in Ubuntu?

Hi Jesus,

Thank you for your response. It worked this morning and I didn't change a thing. The only difference is that I tried flashing the px4 flight stack first.

Hi johnmav,

 

 

That is very strange, do you get the same output if you try to flash the px4 flight stack instead of the Ardupilot? I just tested both with Ubuntu and I did not run into any issues.

 

 

It seems that the flight controller is failing to boot into the bootloader. Try to run the command with sudo aerofc-update.sh nuttx-aerofc-v1-default.px4 (or ardupilot). If that does not make a difference, make sure the flight controller is firmly attached to the Aero Compute Board.

 

 

Regards,

 

Jesus
