I have a problem in my drone. I used aero RTF drone, why this drone can't connect to the QgroundControl application? The wifi of drone was connected to my pc, but on the QGC application still write "Waiting for vehicle connection...". I have flashed this drone, but still not connect to the QGC application. What the solution?
Can you please provide the output of the get_aero_version.py command? The latest release requires an update to the BIOS, FPGA and Flight Controller which is all included in the Image.
If all the software is up-to-date, make sure your computer is not blocking the communication between the drone and the QGroundControl software.
I am also seeing the same thing right now. My information is:
BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.13
OS_VERSION = Poky Aero (Intel Aero Linux Distro) 1.5.1 (pyro)
AIRMAP_VERSION = 1.8
FPGA_VERSION = 0xc1
I am using QGC v3.2.4 as well. I can connect to the Aero wifi network and ssh into the drone, but when I open QGC I just see "Waiting For Vehicle Connection."
In the past, I have noticed my firewall blocking the connection between QGroundControl and the Aero RTF Drone. Can you try to disable the firewall or any similar programs on your computer?
When you flashed the Aero FPGA did you use the following command?
jam -aprogram /etc/fpga/aero-rtf.jam
I tried QGC from a Linux machine that is not configured as an internal PC build and it looks like the connection is now working. There must be some additional security software on my Windows machine that is not allowing the connection. Just an FYI.
Thank you for reply my question.
Now, Finally I have Succeeded. I use OS Version 1.5.1, it's not work to connect to QGC. Then I try use OS Version 1.4, it's working to connect to the QGC.
My Information is :
BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.12_Prod
OS_VERSION = Poky Aero (Intel Aero Linux Distro) 1.4.0 (pyro)"
AIRMAP_VERSION = 1.8
FPGA_VERSION = 0xc0
and then I follow this command:
$ cd /etc/fpga
$ jam -aprogram aero-rtf.jam
To make sure FPGA version is still 0xC0 please run below command,
After this can you try updating FC,
$ cd /etc/px4-fw
$ aerofc-update.sh nuttx-aerofc-v1-default.px4
When you were using software v1.5.1 did you also do a BIOS, FPGA and FC update? With the new software release v1.5.1 it is required to update all components.
Bios and image can be found here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27019/Intel-Aero-Platform-for-UAVs-Installation-Files
The FPGA and FC firmware is included in the image. Did you follow the instructions on the wiki?
I have followed all the instructions in https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup
but I can't flash the FC, the system show like this:
And I try OS Version 1.4, then finally I can flash the FC.
